Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch Leaving SNL

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingSecond City and I.O. alumna Tina Fey has announced that after six seasons as head writer and anchor of Weekend Update, she will be leaving the show to focus her energy on 30 Rock, her new NBC prime time show, which stars Alec Baldwin and is about a late-night comedy show. Whatever will she draw on to make the show feel genuine? Maybe she'll hire some talented writers to help her fluff out the details of that world.

(Update: our Big Poppa in New York, The Apiary, is reporting that Rachel Dratch is also leaving the show, and that Studio 8H is experiencing a "core meltdown" as Lorne Michaels makes announcements that, though scouting for new talent, he plans to simply keep the cast smaller this season.)
