Just days after Will Forte announced he was leaving Saturday Night Live, we have learned that Jenny Slate will not be returning for the show’s 36th season either.
Slate joined the cast in 2009 and instantly became a Twitter and Facebook sensation after she dropped the F-bomb during her very first show.
Slate’s best known character on the series is probably Tina Tina Cheneuse, a customized car horn and doorbell creator/saleswoman. Dressed head-to-toe in denim and using an Eastern European accent, Tina Tina sells nontraditional doorbells and car horns via homemade infomercials. The doorbells and horns all play her saying short, personalized messages. When a computer nerd asks Tina Tina for a doorbell, she plays him one that says, “Ding dong–Router–Netflix–Whaaa.”
