Share

That would make Saturday night's season finale his final appearance as a regular cast member. Drunk Uncle waxes nostalgic for the good ol" days: "You can't even say "Merry Christmas" anymore!

Moynihan's new show is a single-camera comedy called Me, Myself and I, which takes a look at one man's life, dissected into three periods: at age 14 in 1991, at age 40 in present day and at age 65 in 2042.

ET's Leanne Aguilera caught up with Moynihan at CBS' Upfront presentations on Wednesday, where she asked if he would be working on both his new sitcom and SNL at the same time. Additionally, he co-stars with Christopher Meloni in the upcoming Syfy show Happy! He'd regularly appear during Weekend Update segments, mocking that one relative we all have who drinks too much on the holidays.

Among Moynihan's most popular SNL impersonations have been Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, Snooki, Guy Fieri and Ted Cruz, along with such original characters as Drunk Uncle and secondhand reporter Anthony Crispino.

"My life's dream was to be on that show and I don't ever want to leave, but the show did get picked up so we'll see", he told E! He's been on the since since way back in 2008. The site said that Moynihan had planned on the 2016-2017 season to be his last, and was therefore free to pursue new projects. Nevertheless I wish him the best of luck. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is hosting, with Katy Perry as musical guest, in the last of four episodes airing live coast-to-coast, as opposed to just live for the Eastern half of the country. Catch it on NBC on Saturday, May 20, at 11:30 p.m. ET.
