Nasim Pedrad implies that she's leaving 'Saturday Night Live'

It seems we won’t be seeing Nasim Pedrad’s Kim Kardashian adjusting to married life.

At an ATX Television Festival panel over the weekend, Pedrad said she didn’t think she’d be returning to Saturday Night Live in the fall. This announcement isn’t exactly unexpected; Pedrad plays a lead role on the highly anticipated upcoming Fox comedy Mulaney, and she appeared to have reduced screen time on SNL‘s recently wrapped 39th season.

“I haven’t heard any official word so far, but I love this show so much,” the actress said of Mulaney, according to Buzzfeed. “I have an apartment in L.A. and, as far as I know, I’m in L.A. now.”

Pedrad just completed her fifth year on SNL. A rep for the show said no casting decisions have been made at this time.

Fox's new fall shows: A snap judgment

When Ryan Seacrest kicks off the upfronts by welcoming Pitbull to the stage with his entourage of booty-dancers, you know that Fox isn’t catering to your mom. (Unless your mom is one of Pitbull’s booty-dancers, in which case, lucky you!) So it’s no surprise that Kevin Reilly, Fox’s chairman of entertainment, followed Pitbull’s performance with the announcement that Fox is branding itself as “America’s Next Generation Network,” focusing on a youthful audience. That might also explain why Andy Samberg was there, making some decent quips for the benefit of his fellow Next Generation Americans — and a few self-aware advertisers, too. (“Who’s ready to laugh? Who’s ready to pretend that we weren’t all forced here by the invisible hand of capitalism?”) When he wasn’t dreaming up joke shows that sounded real (X-Men Origins Days of Future Past Collectors Cups — the Show), he was doing a pretty good job introducing real shows with jokes. “Is this the best lineup of shows that Fox has ever assembled?” he asked. “I’m not gonna lie to you. Moving on!” And, yet, a few projects looked promising, even for very old viewers  — like, say, anyone over 22. READ FULL STORY

'Mulaney': First cast photos from Fox's new hot comedy -- EXCLUSIVE

Fox is betting on its new sitcom Mulaney. The network Tuesday ordered 10 more episodes of the show — bringing its total to 16 — from Saturday Night Live scribe and stand-up comic John Mulaney. The series, about a rising stand-up comedian (Mulaney) trying to take his career to the next level, also stars comedy legends Martin Short (who plays his boss) and Elliott Gould (his neighbor), as well as SNL alum Nasim Pedrad, Seaton Smith, and Zack Pearlman, who play his three NYC roommates.

Mulaney shoots before a live audience, something that was very important to John. “I wanted to do the type of live-audience multi-camera sitcoms that I grew up on, and I have been working in stand-up and have been performing for live audiences,” he told EW. “And obviously, SNL is on a set in front of a live audience. I was used to writing for and judging stuff by a live audience, and I love the energy of it.” He says of comparisons to another show centered on a stand-up comedian, the iconic Seinfeld: “If we are a 10th as good as they are, we will be lucky.”
