The SNL Archives
Every episode of Saturday Night Live features Weekend Update, the show's signature parody of a real newscast. Each segment features the anchors making jokes about the past week's headlines and current events, and may also include guest commentaries or reports. Weekend Update is also known for its abundance of political humor.

Each Weekend Update era has its own page in The Archives. It lists each cast member who served as an anchor, and any recurring characters or impressions which were featured during that era.
