Cecily Strong, we hardly knew ye!

Michael Che, who was a writer on SNL last season, will be replacing her behind the Weekend Update desk come next season.

Michael also used to be a correspondent on The Daily Show, and will now be joining Colin Jost as a host of the SNL segment.

Cecily will stay on as a repertory player! That's good because we absolutely love Cecily!

Congrats Michael! Break a leg!

Barbara Walters Makes A Surprise Appearance On SNL! Admits To Sleeping With Tom Brokaw! Watch The HIGHlarious Video HERE!

Barbara Walters on SNL

Is there a bigger living legend in TV news than Barbara Walters??

No. Just no.

Which is why it was such an incredible moment to have Babs, now 84, drop by the desk of Weekend Update to give Cecily Strong and Colin Jost some advice about being news anchors.

And she had some scandalous secrets to reveals as well!

Like how she’s hooked up with Tom Brokaw!

Or how her signature voice (which has been poked fun at countless times on Saturday Night Live) is actually fake!

She showed the SNL audience what her REAL voice sounds like! Too funny!

Watch Miz Walters make her surprise appearance on late night

SNL Filled Seth Meyers' Chair! Get Your Update On The New Weekend Update Co-Host HERE!

saturday night live seth meyers weekend update replacement colin jost head writer

It's funny how many people are getting bumped up the comedic line of succession when Jay Leno retires from The Tonight Show!

Well, not ha-ha funny, but you catch our drift!

NBC will fill his Tonight Show chair with Saturday Night Live standout Jimmy Fallon in February, but that move of course leaves a vacated post at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon!

The network decided to go with funny man Seth Meyers, but when he heads for Late Night that'll leave another empty chair at SNL's Weekend Update desk!

SNL has finally decided on his replacement and it looks like they're promoting from within their own ranks!

They're giving the job to the sketch comedy show's head writer Colin Jost!

We're admittedly somewhat surprised every one of NBC's comedic promotions has been given to a white male, especially considering all the heat they've taken lately for a staggering lack of diversity, but that doesn't mean Colin won't do a fine job!

SNL tweeted out this congratulatory announcement:

Bill Hader Says His Saturday Night Live Good-Bye As Stefon! See All Of The SURPRISE Appearances HERE!

With Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader having confirmed their exits from Saturday Night Live after this season, we knew last night's finale was going to be equal parts emotional and HIGHlarious…but boy, did they give both to their viewers HARD or WHAT?!

While there were many great moments during the Ben Affleck-hosted edition of the long-running NBC sketch comedy show, we think everyone can agree that Hader's final performance as the AH-MAY-ZING fan-favorite Stefon REALLY took the cake…especially when what started out as a relatively standard Weekend Update bit (featuring our beloved Amy Poehler!!!) descended in what we can only describe as MADNESS!

Oh, and just WAIT until you see how Anderson Cooper works into it all (above)!

But before we sob ourselves to sleep and forget entirely that Ben Affleck was even there for the night of good-byes, be sure to check out his opening monologue, for which he brings his wife Jennifer Garner on-stage to discuss his 'marriage' comments during his Oscar acceptance speech…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Accidental Racist's LL Cool J & Brad Paisley Defend Tune On SNL!

Okay, not really better…but this is better.

Country star Brad Paisley and actor/hip-hop icon LL Cool J recently released a controversial tune called Accidental Racist

And even though both duet partners have attempted to defend the track on various promotional appearances, it wasn't until they visited the Weekend Update stage during this past weekend's Saturday Night Live that they really got into the MEAT of the song.

Ch-ch-check out Brad and LL attempting to explain the many clever subtleties of Accidental Racist to Seth Meyers (above)!

LOLz!!

Ok obvi that isn't REALLY the song's original crafters, but rather the always AWEsome Jason Sudeikis and Keenan Thompson impersonating the musical duo.

HIGHlarious!

Melissa McCarthy Makes Her GLORIOUS Return To The Saturday Night Live Stage! Watch HERE!

Can we all just agree that Melissa McCarthy needs to be instated as the PERMANENT host of Saturday Night Live?!

Seriously!

When it comes to the HIGHlarious Identity Thief star, there is truly NO SUCH THING as "too much of a good thing!"

Take, for example, what is easily the best opening monologue we've had all season, which features the comedienne attempting to keep up with Taran Killam as they sing and dance along to Springtime in New York…even though she can't walk AT ALL in high heels that would be better suited for the likes of Courtney Stodden!

Ch-ch-check it out (above), as well as even MORE HIGHlarity in sketches where she played an abusive Division III women's basketball coach, a contestant on The Voice's new season, a dating advice video actor, and a SERIOUS lover of pizza…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

P.S. There's even an AH-MAY-ZING cameo from Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage during the weekend update!
