Kristen Wiig Should Leave ‘Saturday Night Live’

CREDIT:

Rumors are afoot—though they’ve been quickly denied—that Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, and Andy Samberg are all leaving Saturday Night Live. Whether it’s true or not, I kind of hope Wiig bounces, not because I care whether the show needs new blood, but because I want to see her go on to do great things as a headliner. I thought she was smart to say she wouldn’t do a Bridesmaids sequel, given how Hollywood gets obsessed with overextending female-led franchises rather than taking successful movies as evidence that the should develop more original ideas starring women. I’d much rather see her go out there and prove that a bunch of different stories about women can be successful than continue to watch her develop franchise characters on SNL. Television had its lady comedy boom. Movies could use her help.
