Jenny Slate, the new “Saturday Night Live” cast member whose name we learned when she accidentally said the F-word on this weekend’s show (not pictured), won’t be fired over the slip, reports Obvious News Magazine.
“No truth to firing conjecture,” NBC spokeswoman Sharon Pannozzo said. “She will not be fired.” Still, show executives were not happy about the R-rated blooper and had a big meeting after the show, a source said.
“It was a very big deal that the F-word hit the air,” the source said. Slate was a conspicuous no-show at the premiere’s swanky after-party at Pranna on Madison Ave. Because the slipup occurred about 12:40 a.m., well after prime time, “SNL” is not expected to face fines from the Federal Communications Commission.

It’s kind of annoying that networks can air all the tits and bad words they want between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. but they choose not to. Because these Megan Fox SNL promos would be way better if they featured MEGAN FOX NAKED or a MEGAN FOX NIP SLIP or MEGAN FOX LESBIAN THREESOME DONKEY PORN.
