Lorne Michaels Calls Kristen Wiig’s Final ‘SNL’ Show ‘Hard’

'It was difficult for all of us,' Michaels says of Wiig's tearful goodbye dance.

Lorne Michaels has seen some of the greatest comedy minds of all time come and go on “Saturday Night Live” over the past 37 years. And while it’s always hard to bid farewell to someone who has blossomed into a star on your stage week-after-week while creating indelible characters, Michaels said the tear-stained last waltz 
 with Kristen Wiig on Saturday’s season finale was one of the rougher ones.

Though NBC hasn’t confirmed it yet, Wiig made what is believed to be her final appearance on the show after seven years of making America laugh along with the Target Lady, Gilly and boozy Kathy Lee Gifford. The waterworks were flowing as she slow-danced with her cast mates to the strains of the Rolling Stones’ “Ruby Tuesday,” and Michaels told reporters on Monday that emotions were running high that night.
