ANDY SAMBERG has announced that he IS leaving "Saturday Night Live" . . . just days after saying that "nothing has been decided." (--So no Andy Samberg and no KRISTEN WIIG? That's not good.)
--He said, quote, "It's an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life. Obviously it's not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back . . . [it was] one of the hardest decisions I've ever made."
--Andy's departure has been rumored for months, and he seemed to confirm that he had one foot out the door in "Lazy Sunday 2" on the season finale.
--He rapped, quote, "On these New York streets I hone my fake rap penmanship / That's how it began, and that's how I'm-a finish it." (--Here's video. The original "Lazy Sunday" put Andy on the map during his first season in 2005.)
