SNL’s "Weekend Update"

I’m a big fan of the “Weekend Update” segment on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, and I’ve got to say the current anchor team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is absolutely marvelous — the best in years: funny, pointed, with fabulous chemistry. Check out samples of their news reports (these from the March 11, 2006, edition — and you can read other weeks using the pulldown menu at the left).

Indeed, often I only tune into SNL at 12:10 a.m., just to catch “Weekend Update.” But tomorrow (Saturday, May 13, 2006), SNL‘s guest host is Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the musical guest is Paul Simon! Oh, I am so going to be watching!
