Poehler Expedition

No joke: Amy Poehler's leaving Saturday Night Live.

According to the Los Angeles Times, she tells the new issue of Men's Vogue that she is taking a break after the November election as she prepares to welcome her first child. And she won't be returning after maternity leave.

"It's gonna be really hard Boyz II Men hard to say goodbye to yesterday," she says. "SNL was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down."
But this is OK, right...
Poehler won't be off the small screen altogether.

She has signed on for NBC's upcoming Office spin-off, set to air next year.
My early, uneducated prediction is that any Office spin-off will fail.

Poehler is married to one of my favorite Arrested Development actors, Will Arnett. She also played a character opposite her husband a few episodes. They were hilarious together. If you haven't seen AD yet, check it out. If you like 30 Rock, you will probably love AD.

Arrested Development was the best! I wish HBO or Showtime would pick it up.
