Amy Poehler’s Says Goodbye to ‘Saturday Night Live’

Following in Tina Fey’s footsteps, Amy Poehler bid farewell to Saturday Night Live this weekend when she appeared in her final episode of SNL as a regular cast member.

Poehler is said to be in negotiation with NBC to star in an upcoming spinoff of “The Office“.

Did you see Poehler’s SNL farewell?

Will you miss her presence on the show?

Amy Poehler’s final episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted by a game Hugh Laurie, was, as usual, a hit-and-miss evening, with many of the show’s best laughs coming from Poehler herself. Just when it looked like the show had missed a golden opportunity for political comedy with a tepid cold open about recently indicted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Poehler and fellow ‘Weekend Update’ co-host Seth Meyers brought the big time funny with a rendition of “Really!?! with Seth & Amy” all about the foul-mouthed, comically coiffed pol. (Poehler: “The hair? Really?! It looks like you’re wearing a toupee that’s also wearing a toupee!”) The bit was so funny, it was that much sadder to realize we’ll probably never see it again — or if we do with a new ‘Update’ co-host, it won’t quite be the same without Poehler’s puckish bite.

When Poehler dropped her trademark smirk to announce her departure from the show, she got all soft and genuine and grateful, and I kinda wanted to leap through the TV and give her a big ole hug for so many years of snarky giggles.
