2. Nasim Pedrad is probably leaving the show sooner rather than later.
It’s been an overly crowded cast in general, but none of the returning cast members have suffered as much as she has in terms of overall screen time. Her one big appearance thus far was as Arianna Huffington, a characterization that has scored well in past years on “Weekend Update” against Seth Meyers. But inside a Piers Morgan sketch? The impression died on the vine, and there’s been little use of her outside of this in the first three weeks. Why “SNL” has never been able to deploy Pedrad more effectively is one of the small tragedies of the past few seasons, and it’s possible she departs without either side extracting as much as they could out of the arrangement.
