"Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke... FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT," the comedian tweeted.

A source close to the production confirms that Wheelan will not be returning to the show. There's no word on the fates of any of the show's other cast members.
