Fired After Half a Season?

I'm not as much of an SNL fan as I used to be, but last season seemed really good. One of the newest cast members, Michaela Watkins, seemed really good. I thought her impression of Arianna Huffington was hysterical, and her portrayal of the celebrity blogger from bitchpleeze.com was, as well. Michaela seemed like she had the potential to really break out. The people at SNL thought otherwise. After only a half season on the show, Watkins was fired.

They canned another female cast member, too, but I didn't really remember her. Oh well. The clip here is the aforementioned "bitchpleeze" sketch.
