UPDATE: As you can read below, comments left by Scribe Vibe readers report that it wasn’t just some staffers at “SNL” who were laid off, it was “everybody” on the show. On Friday, NBC sources denied that the show’s scribes had been formally terminated; but obviously we’ll do some more digging.
Bad news for “Saturday Night Live” staffers.
It’s understood that pinkslips were handed out to many, if not all, staffers today in light of the fact that the show hasn’t produced a fresh seg since Nov. 3. An NBC rep declined comment on the layoffs, which have become a sad fact of life for employees of the many shows that have gone dark during the past few weeks.
