I hate to see this end.
29 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

It's only a few episodes, to hold us over until "SNL" starts up again, but I truly wish it would go on! Truly, truly funny. Gets the "Weekend Update" crew up to date on the political circus from what's happened over the Summer hiatus. I enjoy "SNL" most of the time, but really wouldn't mind seeing these weekly half-hour "Weekend Update" segments continue all on their own. Great job!
