‘SNL’s’ Weekend Update Comes This Thursday

Colin Jost and Micahel Che from Weekend Update: The Summer Edition (NBC)


This week, one of Saturday Night Live’s longest-running sketches will get a prime time placement. Weekend Update: The Summer Edition will air on Thursday at 9:00 p.m. for four weeks. Colin Jost and Michael Che are hosting the half hour long mock news report and additional SNL cast members/characters are expected to make a few appearances. As is the tradition, the show will be taped live as well.

After 42 years on the air, Saturday Night Live's ratings have soared this past year with the help of the presidential election, surprise celebrity guest appearances and Weekend Update.

Earlier today, NBC posted on Twitter: "Doing a #FBLive with @ColinJost and Michael Che later today. Shoot us your #WeekendUpdate Summer Edition questions for them!"
