"Saturday Night Live's" "Weekend Update" is coming to prime time. Four half-hour specials are due to premiere this summer, hosted by anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che.“
'SNL' is having its best season in a quarter of a century — how many shows can say that?! — so we didn’t want them to take the summer off,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt says. “We’re thrilled to have Colin Jost and Michael Che continuing their unique brand of news with fresh 'Weekend Update' shows in primetime this August.”
Other "SNL" characters are expected to make appearances, but haven't been announced yet. The primetime specials kick off on August 10th.
