Brooks Wheelan's time has already come on Saturday Night Live.

The comedian announced himself via Twitter late on Monday that he had been let go from NBC's iconic sketch show.

"Had a blast and loved every second of it," Wheelan wrote. "I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke... FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!"

Wheelan joined the SNL cast as one of six new members in September 2013.

But he suffered from a lack of screen time over his first few months, compared not just to veteran stars, but also to fellow newbies such as Beck Bennett, Mike O’Brien, and Kyle Mooney.

The Kim Kardashian-Kanye West wedding WILL take place on May 24. Of that we are certain.

Will it take place in Paris? In Italy at Belvedere Fort? Will Jay Z serve as Kanye's Best Man? Will the marriage last longer than 72 days?

Questions abound over the nuptials, but this much we know to be true:

Waking Up with Kimye is hilarious!

Saturday Night Live aired another edition of this skit last night, with host Andy Samberg guest-starring as the couple's wedding planner. Watch the show lampoon the tandem below:

Did Leslie Jones cross a line this weekend on Saturday Night Live?

The cast member appeared on Weekend Update in response to Lupita Nyong'o being named People Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman in the World, giving praise to the actress and then going on to explain how she deserves the title of Most Useful Woman.

Especially if this were the slave era.

Referencing pre Civil War-America, Jones quipped:

"I would have never been single. I’m six feet tall and I’m strong. Strong! I mean, look at me, I’m a mandingo... I’m just saying that back in the slave days, my love life would have been way better. [Master] would have hooked me up with the best brotha on the plantation... I would be the No. 1 slave draft pick."

Anna Kendrick hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and her most notable moment likely came in a musical sketch called "Dongs All Over the World."

For obvious reasons.

Kendrick, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Sasheer Zamata - The International Nasty Girls - singing about traveling the globe in search of ...

Well, you know.

Not unlike Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg's classic "D--k in a Box" sketch from 2006, the raunchy clip featured the fab five singing about dongs.

A lot.

Their globe-trotting itinerary leaves little time for sightseeing and is jam packed with as many dongs as they can possibly "destroy" on this planet.

Lena Dunham will host Saturday Night Live this weekend and, yes, someone is topless in one of the NBC promos for the March 8 installment.

But it isn't Dunham!

Instead, Kate McKinnon gets half-naked in a spot, while threatening to murder Dunham's HBO character is another and going on about a Girls amusement park in another.

It's pretty awesome stuff, much more awesome than the Vogue photoshop controversy Dunham recently spoke out about, and you should watch all the teasers here:

Leonardo DiCaprio took time out from having sex with super models on a yacht yesterday to help good friend Jonah Hill open Saturday Night Live.

The two-time Oscar nominee was telling the audience how he's actually the lead in The Wolf of Wall Street and how DiCaprio was the one to learn a lot from him... when Leo (that's short for Leonardo, as Hill explained) shocked viewers by making an appearance.

He scolded Hill a bit and caused the host to become all apologetic and sheepish.

And then he agreed to do that thing the two often did on set when Hill grew overly anxious. You know, that thing where DiCaprio grabs hold of his co-star and Hill declares himself to be "King of the World."

Watch the hilarious monologue now:

Saturday Night Live will soon have a new Oprah Winfrey. And Michelle Obama. And Condoleezza Rice.

The iconic NBC sketch comedy series has responded to its lack-of-diversity criticism by hiring Sasheer Zamata. The comedian will debut on the January 18 episode of the program, which will be hosted by Drake.

Zamata trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York and will become SNL's first African-American female since Maya Rudolph left five years ago.

Ready to wake up once again with Kimye?

For the second time in a few weeks, Saturday Night Live has taken aim at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, presenting a holiday edition of Waking Up with Kimye last night.

In the sketch, Jay Pharoah's Kanye says Kim has finally got her body back to an "acceptable" weight, holding up the recent Us Weekly with Kardashian's bikini body on the cover.

The bit also features Kim's family performing as the “Kardashian Kristmas Karolers,” or "KKK," along with a music video on a reindeer that clearly parodies the Bound 2 video.

Watch and laugh now:

Saturday Night Live hears the criticism. And it's finally doing something about it.

Following the exodus of Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen following last season, the long-running sketch comedy hired six new cast members, all of whom have something in common:

They're white.

This led to a number of diversity complaints, considering the show actually employees a grand total of zero African-American performers, something it mocked when Kerry Washington (Scandal) hosted in November.
