SNL's Weekend Update Finally Gets A Second Anchor

| Filed under: TV News

Not that everyone didn’t LOVE watching Seth Meyer talk to himself for ten minutes, but it was time to add someone else to the desk!

News just in that Seth will be getting himself a co-host for the iconic SNL segment. And the lucky winner is…

Kristen Wiig!

As she is the only remaining female player from last season who’s billed as a regular cast member, we guess they didn’t have too much of a choice!

How do U think Kristen will do?

    Yeah, I just do not think she is funny. She's been in other things and is pretty much the same character every time.



  14. 14

    HELLO! This chick looks like Katy Perry in 10 years!! I can't watch SNL without thinking that! surprised no one has mentioned that yet!



  15. 15

    She'll do great! Love her! Especially when she does the Target Lady and Kathie Lee!

    i liked seth by himself.

    hes so yummy! i tuned in just to watch his adorableness.

    but i think she will do great since shes just so funny.



  18. 18

    She is simply amazing, she effortlessly brings out these original characters and just nails them! I love her 'Target' sketch! She is so damn funny! I love when she does that 'adults going out for a drink after work that always ends in them arranging group sex' sketch!!! 'I've said before and Ill say it again, that's America, it's a problem.' LOL She will make a great anchor but I have only seen her do impersonations or character acting, it will be interesting to see her be herself. I LOVE SNL!!!

    Re: RobPnMeShouldB – ur spot on.



  20. 20

    oh gross. She is just a little too goofy. She will take away from the delicious Seth!

    I love Kristen, I'm glad they didn't fire her, she was by far the funniest gal on the show.



  22. 22

    does anyone even watch snl anymore??? idk i think it went to shit after like 2001 minus tina and amy, they were good



  23. 23

    I stopped watching Weekend Update after Kevin Nealon.



  24. 24

    Re: andriiiiia – I must say SNL has still been holding its own after 2001 and is still a great show. But apart from that I cant believe your photo is of Filburt from Rocko's Modern Life, I effing LOVE that show! I love that people still remember it!



  25. 25

    she's hilarious!! that's exciting. She's definitely funnier than Seth Meyers…



  26. 26

    She will rock it! One of the best on the show. :)



  27. 27

    I adore her in the sketches. she's a fantastic comedian, I'll have to wait and see if she can deliver the news

    congrats, honey!



  28. 28

    Kristen Wiig is the funniest woman on SNL since Gilda Radner. Congrats!!!



  29. 29

    SHE'S AWESOME. I love her. I first saw her on Joe Schmo and fell in love. She's the funniest thing on the show these days.

    GOOD LUCK K-Wiig!



  30. 30

    Target Lady RULES!!



  31. 31

    Kristen is my favorite, but she's being overused just like Amy Pohler. Lorne Michaels get off your rich, lazy ass and find some more talent.



  32. 32

    shes hilarious. she'll do great

  33. yado says – reply to this


    33

    She's the best on the entire show, she'll do awesome



  34. 34

    She'll be terrific!



  35. 35

    I love her!!!!!



  36. 36

    I cant stand her



  37. 37

    Big surprise… We knew this was bound to happen. She was the only one who had any hype with the current cast.



  38. 38

    She's hilarious! I love her as penelope the most, I wish the clips were still on YouTube :(



  39. 39

    Great, that was the only skit she WASN'T in. Guess I will have to fast forward that too. She SUUUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  40. 40

    she is funny as hell i can't wait until the snl premiere to see her next to seth i bet they will have a great chemistry



  41. 41

    FINALLY they're adding someone else to the weekend update.



  42. 42

    I think they just said she's not going to be on Weekend Update, the show releases a statement. Sorry y'all..



  43. 43

    kristen wiig is the only person that ever makes me laugh on that show anymore so i bet she'll do great. snl has really gone down the drain though so it's not like i'll even be watching.



  44. 44

    she rocks



  45. 45

    Seth Meyer doing the News all alone was a terrible idea, just like when Dennis Miller did it, or Chevy Chase, or Norm MacDonald, or Colin Quinn, or Jane Curtin, or….pretty much every single Weekend Update skit since 1975!



  46. 46

    I hope they bring back Gilley!!!!



  47. 47

    She is the funniest cast member as of now….please..she'll nail it.



  48. 48

    She is AWESOME as JUDY GRIMES



  49. 49

    Ugghhh! I hope this is a joke. She is the most untalented cast member to appear on SNL in ages (and that's saying a lot). All of her characters suck — she's ripped off the way more talented Mo Collins from "Mad-TV," and neglected to include the FUNNY. Whenever there's a sketch centered around one of her characters, I change the channel. Bring back Maya Rudolph, that's who should be sharing the desk with Seth!



  50. 50

    This isn't even true! This site always has lies on it, like when there was an article here that Michael Jackson "faked" a heart attack to get out of his upcoming concerts.



  51. 51

    She is the funniest SNL performer, male or female.



  52. 52

    I love Her she's a champ!!!! and shes not scared to act retardation :p

  53. tj77 says – reply to this


    53

    I. Love. Her. She's hilarious. I just hope that since she's doing Weekend Update now, she won't skip out on other sketches like Seth does now. She's the best thing on that show.



  54. 54

    Saturday Night Live has sucked for years! The 70's with the Not Ready For Prime Time Players,will never be duplicated! This show needs to just die and RIP!



  55. 55

    I think Kristen Wig is the worst thing that ever happen to SNL.



  56. 56

    I actually think she's funny. She was in movies like Knocked Up and I just loved her character there…



  57. 57

    i luv her she's so funny but i'm still gonna miss amy:(



  58. 58

    i hate her, shes the only one of the show that i hate, she so ugly and totally not funny
