SNL Adds Cecily Strong as Weekend Update Co- Anchor; Seth Meyers to Stick Around All Season?


I liked Cecily Strong last season. In the little she was given, she was pretty funny at it. I doubt they let her go solo though. I’m sure Seth Meyers is going no where.

Saturday Night Live Cecily Strong Weekend UpdateThe Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With at a Party will now be driving the pop culture conversation, as a co-anchor of Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update segment.

SNL boss Lorne Michaels tells the New York Times that starting with the late-night sketch show’s Season 39 premiere (airing Sept. 28), sophomore cast member Cecily Strong will sit alongside veteran news reader Seth Meyers at the WU desk, mocking headlines.

Will Ferrell hosted last night’s SNL with musical guest Usher and it was pretty great. This was on of the funniest of the season, give or take a few sketches. The episode started off with some great Obama and Biden stuff with Ferrell reprising his classic George W. Bush impersonation. The episode also featured many guest stars (Ana Gasteyer, Liam Neeson, Will Forte). One of the best parts was when they rolled out the 100th digital short. It featured all the faves from past shorts like Shy Ronnie, Natalie Portman, Michael Bolton, etc. So funny. Check it out.

Saturday Night Live: Bein’ Quirky With Zooey Deschanel


Sofia Vergara hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend and one of the better skits was the Bein’ Quirky bit with Abby Elliot as Zooey Deschanel. Her impersonation of Deschanel is pretty spot on.

If you don’t know from my numerous Beyonce posts, I’m a little bit of a Bey stan. So when Maya Rudolph did a skit where she played Beyonce I was all over that. It’s pretty funny and an added bonus Justin Timberlake does a guest appearance as Bon Iver.
