Jimmy FallonAfter 6 years, Jimmy Fallon announced that he is leaving Saturday Night Live. Although NBC hoped that he would renew his contract, Jimmy had made it clear that he wanted to move on, so his departure was not a surprise. Chicagoist, being the dork nerds that we are, especailly liked Jimmy's portrayal of Nick Burns, the unfriendly computer tech guy. Of course we also loved him on Weekend Update. We wonder who will now sit at the newsdesk next to Tina Fey. It may be selfish, but we would love to see one of our Second City comedians get the position.
