It made sense of SNL stars Colin Jost and Michael Che to take Weekend Update out on the road for the election conventions, but now that we have a longer investment in political commentary, is it time to spin off the bit altogether? That’s the word on the street, as NBC is reportedly considering a primetime Weekend Update.
Not that the Republican National Convention lacked for its own special breed of entertainment night after night, but the political arena at least managed to bring SNL out of summer break early. Watch Colin Jost and Michael Che bring Weekend Update to Cleveland with the requisite Pokémon GO sketch you never wanted, plus bonus Kate McKinnon!
Kim Jong-Un (Bobby Moynihan) appeared at the Weekend Update desk on SNL last night and began to give commentary. When laser sights began appearing on his chest, anchor Colin Jost recommended that he get "out of here" right away! Good for a couple of laughs!
