TINA FEY IS LEAVING SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
BURBANK, Calif. (AP)- Tina Fey is leaving the anchor chair at "Saturday Night Live." Fey says she's quitting the show after six seasons as head writer and co-anchor of the "Weekend Update" fake news segment to focus on her new NBC prime-time series, "30 Rock."
"The new show's going to take a lot of time," Fey said while appearing on Friday night's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
"I wanted to stop doing 'Saturday Night Live' so I could spend more time with Star Jones," she joked, referring to last month's dramatic departure of "The View" co-hostess.
Fey, 36, first joined "Saturday Night Live" as a writer in 1997 and became head writer in 1999.(First Female to become Head Writer at S.N.L., and she came from Second City Chicago, or E.T.C. to be excait)
In 2000, she first appeared on camera on "Weekend Update" alongside co-anchor Jimmy Fallon, who was replaced by Amy Poehler two years ago.
Fey plays the head writer of a fictional late-night sketch show in "30 Rock," a show she developed for NBC that also stars Alec Baldwin.
"This is the big leap I'm making, it's a show about working at a late-night comedy show," she told Leno. "I'm very creative."
