Lorne Michaels Says No Cast Members Are Leaving SNL This Season

After the success of Bridesmaids and Horrible Bosses, no one would have been surprised to see Kristen Wiig or Jason Sudeikis bolt from the grimy world of late night to live among the pretty people in L.A. Good news, though — they're not! Yesterday, at the Television Critics Association press tour, Lorne Michaels confirmed that none of Saturday Night Live's cast members will leave the show for this upcoming season. (This is also good news for the newbies, some of whom often get culled at season's end.) That doesn't mean they won't get any new blood at 30 Rock, though; auditions will be held at the end of August. Any comedians out there got a good Romney? [Roger Catlin/Twitter]
