SNL is officially down one player.

After much speculation, Andy Samberg confirmed that he is officially leaving Saturday Night Live and will be joining the cast of a new BBC Three sitcom titled Cuckoo. We'd say that you can get your Andy Samberg fix by going to see his latest film That's My Boy, but we'd rather leave you with pleasant memories of the guy.

It has been confirmed that Catherine Tate will return to The Office as a cast regular for Season 9 because NBC is clearly trying for the series' worst season ever. When does The Mindy Kaling Project start, again?

Starz' Spartacus will end after its third season, which will be called Spartacus: War of the Damned. This installment of the violent Roman epic will feature returning cast members like Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett and Dustin Clare, as well as new cast members Todd Lasance and Anna Huchison. Hopefully the new season will be able to beat its predecessors in amount of deaths per minute.

In other shows that promise a high body count, MTV has announced plans to create a new television series based on the popular Scream films. Rumors speculate as to whether the franchise's stars Courteney Cox and David Arquette will join the cast, and if the former pair will kill one another before Ghostface has the chance to do so on-screen.

In sad news, Desperate Housewives star Kathryn Joosten passed away at age 72 of lung cancer, just weeks after her Desperate Housewives character died of cancer on the show's series finale. The original Family Feud host Richard Dawson also passed this week at age 79 due to complications related to esophageal cancer.
