Well, so much for my theory that the Saturday Night Live blood-letting (read: staff-letting) was over after Monday’s news that newbie featured player Brooks Wheelan had been fired after just one season on the sketch comedy series. Deadline reports that fellow featured players Noël Wells and John Milhiser will also not be returning for the show’s fortieth season come this fall, bringing the current axing total up to three. As Deadline reminds us, “the first year on SNL is considered a boot camp, in which new cast members have a season to make a mark. This past year was particularly tough.” The thirty-ninth season saw the addition of seven new featured players, bloating the cast and kind of making it seem like a real sink or swim situation for the new kids. Apparently, about half of them sank. The outlet also confirms news we’ve known for weeks, that star Nasim Pedrad will not be back on the show after five strong seasons, as the comedienne is dedicating her full talents to former SNL writer John Mulaney‘s new Fox show, Mulaney, which will debut this fall. (Fun fact: did you know that Mulaney’s little sister, Claire Mulaney, joined SNL‘s writing staff last year?) So we’re down four now. Will it ever end?

Forev

Los Angeles is known for being a town where it is hard to meet people and have meaningful interactions. Angelinos live in their cars and do not frequently use public transportation like other big cities such as New York and Chicago, further lessening the chance you will randomly catch someone’s eye across a crowded subway car. There is certainly a predominant bar and night life scene in LA, but it is rare to walk away from those interactions with anything more than a random hook up. Forev gives audiences a glimpse into single life in Los Angeles for two 20-somethings looking to connect with someone, but not quite sure how. Pete (Matt Mider) is a mild mannered guy spending an evening in with a pizza and some TV, but his night is quickly interrupted when his neighbor Sophie (Noël Wells) crashes through his door in the throes of a very intense make out session. After overhearing her potential hook up bragging about her on the phone to his friends, she quickly sobers up and as it becomes clear Pete does not look put out because Sophie mistook his apartment for her own, he may have a thing for Sophie himself.
