This isn’t the first time the Peacock Network has presented SNL‘s “Weekend Update” segment as a primetime television show. In 2008, Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers anchored the primetime show, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday, during the month prior to the US Presidential election. It returned for three episodes in the fall of 2009, with Poehler and Meyers hosting the first two episodes, and Darrell Hammond and Maya Rudolph serving as anchors in the third. Two episodes, listed as SNL Primetime Election Special, also aired in September of 2012. It’s still too early to use the ratings to predict if NBC will cancel or renew Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update for season two. I’ll keep an eye on the ratings though, and update this page, periodically. Subscribe for free updates on any cancellation and renewal news.
