Bobby Moynihan departing 'Saturday Night Live' for new CBS sitcom

Longtime "Saturday Night Live" cast member Bobby Moynihan is jumping ship and networks.

Moynihan was present at CBS' upfront presentation Wednesday to introduce the series "Me, Myself & I," a sitcom centered on one man's life at three different stages. 

The new series means that this weekend's "Saturday Night Live" season finale (8:30 p.m. PDT) will be Moynihan's last as a cast member with the NBC late-night sketch comedy show. 

Moynihan, who also lends his voice talents to Disney's "Ducktales" reboot, is currently the second-longest-running cast member on "SNL," having joined the show in 2008. 

That leaves Kenan Thompson far and away the eldest statesman remaining on "SNL." Thompson joined the show as a featured player in 2003, before being promoted to repertory player in 2005.

"Me, Myself & I," also stars John Larroquette and Sharon Lawrence and is set to appear on Mondays at 9:30 p.m. this fall.
