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.

We all know how much Jack Bauer loves to chop off people's heads.

It was one of the most stunning acts in 24 history, back in Season 2, when Jack cut off an enemy's noggin in order to help with his undercover mission for CTU.

But this defeated former agent took no real pleasure in executing moral enemy Cheng on last night's 24: Live Another Day finale; that's because Cheng had already won the duo's battle.

His henchman had killed Audrey.

Yes, Jack's final love, his one reason to go on, became the latest woman to meet her demise on the final.

Nickelodeon has given the unexpected axe to Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande.

The network announced yesterday that Sam & Cat will airs it "series finale" in a few weeks, canceling the popular sitcom after just one season.

It offered little in the way of explanation for the move, simply saying in a statement that "we are very proud of the show and its very talented cast and we wish them all the best."

True Detective was a surprise runaway hit for HBO, and the 2014 Emmy nominations indicate that the show is just as popular with the Academy as it was with viewers.

Naturally, there's a lot of pressure on showrunner Nic Pizzolatto to deliver again in season 2, and the show's one-and-done anthology format means that acclaimed stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson won't be returning for a second go-round.

So who will fill the (probably gritty, psychologically complex) voice in the show's second season?

Well, rumors that Jessica Chastain will join True Detective were shot down months ago, and no new casting information was leaked until today.

According to unconfirmed reports, it now looks as though Irish actor Colin Farrell will continue the show's tradition of transplanting big screen stars to the world of premium cable.
