Amy Poehler To Leave SNL

Saturday Night Live is about to lose another good one.

Funny lady Amy Poehler has announced that she will be saying goodbye to the sketch show sooner than originally expected. The Baby Mama star, who is about to give birth to her own baby in October, was scheduled to exit after this season finishes, but has decided not to return to SNL after her maternity leave.

Instead, Amy will go from changing newborn diapers to work on her new show, which is a spinoff of The Office.

"It's gonna be really hard - Boyz II Men hard - to say goodbye to yesterday," Amy recently joked to Men's Vogue of her depature. "SNL was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down."

Having been on the show since 2001, Amy was one of the last shining lights left. She will be missed.
