Wells didn't do anything either. Last year's cast was really bloated (17 people!) and Wells, Milhiser and Whelan simply were at the bottom of the totem pole, especially due to the recurring trend of multiple guest stars popping up in almost every episode. Mooney and Bennett stood out because their had their own niche with the digital videos, and O'Brien generally made more appearances (because he's a longtime SNL writer) but the other three were kinda left out to dry.
Wells had her Lena Dunham impression, Whelan had his couple of standup bits on Update and Mihiser had...uh, I guess that stage parent skit with Lady Gaga was it, as that was literally his only starring role all season.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
The show she's going to is a prime time comedy, which should get a TON of hype. Plus, is playing a Kardashian, Arriana Huffington, or a random old lady (all with pretty much the same voice) really that rewarding?
