Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Series

Saturday Night Live is the only late night sketch series that is broadcast live on network television, with each episode put together in just a week to ensure that it’s as topical and relevant as possible. This is especially important for the one constant segment that accompanies every episode of Saturday Night Live, and that’s Weekend Update. Now the news satire segment of SNL will get even more time to skewer the headlines.

NBC has ordered four episodes of Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update, a 30-minute spin-off that has occasionally been ordered to air on Thursdays. Find out more about the Saturday Night Live Weekend Update series return after the jump. Read More »
