Seth MacFarlane impersonated Ryan Lochte on Saturday Night Live's “Weekend Update” segment two nights ago, giving Seth Myers a preview of fall TV shows.

The Family Guy and Ted movie creator just eviscerated the Olympic champion, portraying Lochte as a dumb jock with lines such as “I was America in Olympics.”

"Ryan" referred to Matthew Perry's new show Go On as "Goon" (he didn't realize it was two words) and kept calling Animal Practice “Monkey Hospital.” #JEAH!

The kicker? At one point he randomly says, "It feels so weird to be dry."

Watch Seth's brutal parody of the Olympic swimming champ here:

The Saturday Night Live cupboard just got a bit more bare.

With Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg already out, and Jason Sudeikis also considering an exit, Splitsider confirms that Abby Elliott will not return for Season 38 of the iconic sketch show.

Elliott joined the cast in 2008.

She is responsible for such hilarious impressions as Angelina Jolie, Rachael Maddow, Anna Faris, Meryl Streep and Khloe Kardashian. The comedian also cracked us up last season in Quirky Girl With Zooey Deschanel (above).

We'll miss her.

Confirming rumors that have been circulating for months, and which were punctuated by his performance of Lazy Sunday 2 on the Saturday Night Live season finale last month, Andy Samberg has confirmed that he's exiting the iconic sketch show.

Andy Samberg on SNL

“It’s an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life,” Samberg told The New York Times yesterday in a telephone interview. “Obviously it’s not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back.”

Samberg joined SNL in 2005 and went on to become the master of the Digital Short. He can also do a mean impression of Nicholas Cage.

Referring to this move as "one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made," the comedian will next be seen alongside Adam Sandler in this summer's That My Boy. His depature follows that of Kristen Wiig, who was given an emotional send-off on that same season finale.

Kristen Wiig got a musical sendoff on the season finale of Saturday Night Live.

The popular cast member is leaving the show after seven years, and in her final skit, guest host Mick Jagger played the principal at a high school graduation and brought up Wiig, in cap and gown, as "one particular student who is leaving this summer."

The symbolism? Not subtle. The emotions? Running high.

She danced in turn with Jagger, cast members and executive producer Lorne Michaels to the tune of the Rolling Stones classic "She's a Rainbow."

The ensemble then sang sang another Stones hit, "Ruby Tuesday," with its line, "still I'm gonna miss you." Wiig appeared to be holding back tears.

Wiig's departure, while widely expected - her hit film Bridesmaids was just the start of a promising movie career - is still a tough blow for the show.

Her limitless range on SNL brought us attention-seeker Penelope, Kat (half of the musical duo Garth and Kat), the Target woman and other oddballs.

Real-life notables she played include Bjork, Kathie Lee Gifford, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and most recently, Tanning Mom.

Lazy Sunday, the Saturday Night Live digital short that transformed the show and is credited with popularizing YouTube, got a long-awaited sequel this weekend.

Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg are back, rapping about weekend activities such as where to get their snack on and seeing the Broadway version of Sister Act.

It would be fitting for Samberg, who is reportedly leaving the show, to bookend his career in such fashion, as the original Lazy Sunday was his first big hit.

Feast your eyes on the long-awaited Lazy Sunday 2 right here:

Not as good as the original, but pretty funny. It was a bold move to even try. For your reference (and laughs), check out the original, 2005 video below:

Justin Bieber helped Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone celebrate their 100th Digital Short this weekend on Saturday Night Live, but the teenager immediately regretted doing so after he learned just how the pair planned on touting the feat.

"Tonight we are celebrating our 100th short," Samberg sings in the following video. "Congratulations to us, truly a major milestone. Guess what we're going to do? Tonight, we're gonna suck our own c-ck."

Wait... what?!? Justin responds.

At various points, former Digital Short stars such as Natalie Portman, Michael Bolton and Jon Hamm also showed up.

So did Justin Timberlake, who, of course, is responsible for the most memorable edition of all-time. In case you forgot, we have four words for you: D-ck in a Box.

Host Will Ferrell joined in the festivities as well, concluding the video with: "I do endorse this song. My name is Will Ferrell and I'm sucking my own dong."

Give Patricia Krentcil credit where due.

The New Jersey woman, now known as Tanning Mom after her arrest for (allegedly) letting her six-year-old go tanning with her, knows how to take a joke.

Kristen Wiig's impersonation of her on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update news segment this weekend was "well done," she told the New York Post.

Tanning Mom conceded, "The whole thing was hysterical."

During the sketch, a charred-looking Wiig likened Patricia Krentcil to a Slim Jim, and later "Wile E. Coyote right after something's blown up in his face."

The 44-year-old Krentcil, who pleaded not guilty to felony child endangerment charges last week, was not nearly amused after Snooki called her crazy.

Rihanna appeared on Saturday Night Live this weekend, performing "Birthday Cake" sans Chris Brown and "Talk That Talk" in black knee-high boots and high-waisted, very short shorts ... par for the course for the 24-year-old.

She also sang her new hit "Where Have You Been" on what was most likely one of the most elaborate sets a performer has had, an Arabian themed set-up featuring ornate costumes, drummers and at least 10 backup dancers.

Watch both of Rihanna's Saturday Night Live performances here:
