article imageHader's Stefon delivers moving farewell on NBC's 'SNL'

New York - NBC's 'Saturday Night Live' delivers a moving goodbye to Bill Hader, as beloved 'Weekend Update' correspondent Stefon makes his final appearance.
There was a heaviness in the air going into last night's "Saturday Night Live" 38th season finale, as Bill Hader, one of the most popular cast members on the show, delivered his final performance as an SNL staffer.
Among Hader's many impersonations and personalities, perhaps his most well-known was Stefon, the unambiguous city news correspondent for SNL's "Weekend Update."
While it is likely more disconcerting for Stefon fans that Hader is insisting that there will not be a Stefon movie, as Uproxx reported on Saturday, SNL presented an emotional send-off last night.
Asked by "Weekend Update" anchor Seth Meyers to share what Manhattan has to offer summertime tourists, Stefon brought a laundry list of exclusive delights. Stefon featured New York's hottest club, "Pants, located on that fake street from Seinfeld," and harboring "the table from Charlie Rose" among other attractions.
On it went, until it became known that Stefon was planning a new life without Seth Meyers. What ensued was classic SNL, rich in cameo appearances and a keen combination of production and live performance.
It was clear that Hader will be missed.
