'SNL' Weekend Update Is Headed to Primetime!

"Saturday Night Live" may just have found the secret to finally winning an Emmy this year after a 24-year drought. Each will star the current co-hosts, Michael Che and Colin Jost, along with "additional" cast member appearances. While Che and Jost, who now host the segment, will continue as the lead anchors, other SNL cast-members will make appearances, as well. Title aside, the shows will air on Thursday nights at 9 ET/PT starting August 10. Starting Thursday, Aug. 10, anchors Michael Che and Colin Jost will bring SNL's venerable fake news segment to prime time. This makes the current season SNL's highest-rated since the 2008-09 season, which not so coincidentally timed with the 2008 presidential election between candidates then-Sen.

Oil steadies below $49 as USA drilling threatens longer glut
Oil steadied below $49 a barrel as US drillers continued to boost activity, countering OPEC's efforts to drain a global glut. That was the day OPEC announced lower production targets for the first half of 2017, sending crude prices hurtling higher.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC's entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said, "SNL is having its best season in a quarter of a century - how many shows can say that?! - so we didn't want them to take the summer off". The segment will be made into half-hour episodes to air on prime time starting August 10. Versus year-ago averages, SNL is up +21% in adult 18-49 rating and up 2.2 million persons or +26% in total viewers. Politico first reported last month that NBC will be exploring a weekly "Weekend Update" series to "help NBC capitalize on a topsy turvy news cycle".
