MANY MORE LAZY SUNDAYS ARE AHEAD: The L.A. Times is reporting that Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz, and Kenan Thompson are being given walking papers by SNL (with Darrell Hammond likely departing as well) and that Update reins will be handed off to Jason Sudeikis. Poehler's apparently staying, despite being dumped from Update. The Post disagrees about Hammond, but adds the tidbit that Seth Myers (who was co-head writer with Fey last season) will become sole head writer. The Sanz departure is overdue, and Sudeikis as an Update anchor seems a good call, but a Myers-run show? Not exactly reassuring.
