Tim Meadows upset 'SNL' did 'Bill Brasky' without him

In the final sketch of the night, Rudd was joined by Will Ferrell and David Koechner as well as Taran Killam for a revival of Ferrell and Koechner's famed "Bill Brasky" sketch. "SNL" devotees were thrilled, but former cast member Tim Meadows was not.

According to Vulture, on Meadows' Facebook page Saturday night he posted, "I guess it just dawned on me that I mean NOTHING to them ... I'm just being overly sensitive. It doesn't matter in the long run. I'm grateful for what they did for me. But everyone [sic] in a while as a fan and a alumni, it stings a little to not even be considered as someone they would like to come back around."

After some time to cool down, and comments from other former "SNL" cast members like Chris Rock and Laraine Newman, Meadows posted, "I talked to a friend on the show who said it WAS a last-minute sketch. I acted like a baby. I'm happy for all of my friends success and will always be grateful and proud to have been a part of SNL."

To Bill Brasky!
