'SNL' cast member leaving for CBS sitcom

Bobby Moynihan will leave "Saturday Night Live" following this weekend's season finale after nine seasons on the NBC show. reports Moynihan is bowing out after CBS picked up the pilot for "Me, Myself & I," a sitcom starring Moynihan and John Larroquette.

Holly Rowe gets extension at ESPN

Between dashing for interviews with coaches and chatting with NBA commissioner Adam Silver, Holly Rowe was back in her element Thursday night. It was a welcome respite for ESPN's veteran sideline reporter nearly two years after her initial cancer diagnosis.

ESPN has ensured Rowe a spot on those sidelines for years to come with a contract extension — fortunate timing for Rowe, whose cancer has recently recurred and spread.

Rowe told The Associated Press on Thursday that she is again battling cancer, sharing the news hours after ESPN announced it had extended her deal.

"I don't think about having cancer when I'm out here," Rowe told The Associated Press before tipoff of a WNBA game between Minnesota and New York, her first this season.

"Monday, I have a CAT scan and have treatment. I'll be a cancer patient on Monday. I'm not thinking about it today."

Rowe has been with the network for two decades.
