SNL Weekend Update host Cecily Strong has apparently been demoted and will be replaced at the anchor desk this season by a new cast member and former writer on the show.

Replace Colin Jost. If SNL needs to do one thing right it’s replace Colin Jost who has absolutely no idea how to deliver a joke. Cecily Strong is SNL’s strongest performer current, what a bad creative move for the show. 

It’s not a demotion. It’s because she’s their strongest performer that she’s been taken off the desk. (She requested to be moved.) Her talents are better suited elsewhere. I’m not saying she’s at this exact level, but imagine if Will Ferrell or Kristen Wiig did Update. She was being beyond wasted behind the desk.

Colin Jost only hosted for a handful of episodes, and in my opinion, didn’t really get a fair shake because he was stepping directly into Seth Meyers’ role. I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt with a new partner and a new season.

Also that “new cast member” not mentioned here is ‘Daily Show’ correspondent Michael Che. Who has been an ‘SNL’ writer for a year and has a strong creative relationship with Jost. 

It kind of boggles my mind that people are so up in arms about Cecily and not even discussing how it’s the first Black ‘Update’ host in the show’s 40-year history.

Last night we asked kids in TImes Square how they felt about going back to school.

Hey, we made another one of these things. It was fun.

There’s one of these theaters on the Upper West Side and it’s amazing. They don’t put it in the name of the theater. You don’t realize until you get in there. It’s an awesome surprise. Fuck 3D — this is the future of movie theaters.
