The moment that Bobby Moynihan's Me, Myself & I pilot was picked up by CBS, it was clear that his Saturday Night Live days were numbered.

According to Deadline, which first reported the news, Moynihan signed a two-year extension after his original seven-year deal expired.

ME, MYSELF & I stars Bobby Moynihan (Alex, present day), Jack Dylan Grazer (Alex, 1991), Brian Unger (Ron, 1991, present day), Jaleel White (Darryl, present day), Kelen Coleman (Abby, 2042), Skylar Gray (Abby, present day), Christopher Paul Richards (Justin, 1991), Mandell Maughan (Maggie, 1991), Reylynn Caster (Nori, 1991), with Sharon Lawrence (Eleanor, 2042) and John Larroquette (Alex, 2042). This season was planned to be his final hurrah with the show, freeing him up to delve into the network comedy world.

Moynihan's exit should not come as a shock to those who followed the news coming out of broadcast Upfronts. The single-cam comedy examining one man's life over a 50-year span - with Moynihan playing the protagonist at age 40. SNL's season finale on May 20 will officially be his last show as a member of the cast.

During his 9 year run, Moynihan has amassed a big list of unforgettable characters, with his epic Weekend Update character Drunk Uncle possibly being the most recognizable.

Moynihan joked about his complicated schedule at Wednesday's CBS upfront presentation, explaining that he had to get back to rehearsals because "you do not want to keep the Rock waiting".

Moynihan has been a "SNL" cast member since 2008.
