Saturday Night Live: Colin Jost Makes His "Weekend Update" Debut

Colin Jost

Saturday Night Live has been on hiatus for a month... and this is the best they could come up with?

The episode that marked the debut of Seth Meyers' replacement Colin Jost at the "Weekend Update" desk was disappointingly low on laughs, featuring one-joke sketches that went on too long (see: Aidy Bryant's hefty Tinkerbell stand-in "Tonkerbell"). Even Kate McKinnon's typically hilarious Ellen impersonation was a bit lackluster. As far as "Weekend Update," there are of course going to be some growing pains in that department but... we miss Seth already.

Weekend Review: TCM Goes to the Oscars, Sherlock's "Last Vow"

Decorative statue at the 2013 Governors Awards

"It's a room full of excitement. It's a room full of sweat," recalls Ellen Burstyn, who won her Oscar in 1975 for Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. "It's your bar mitzvah times a million," says director-writer Jason Reitman, a four-time nominee (Up in the Air, Juno) who remembers getting over his loss with a post-show visit to In-N-Out Burger. (My kind of guy.) "It's a bit like being in a car crash. Everything slows down, everything goes into slow motion," Helen Mirren reflects on the moment her name was read when she won in 2007 for The Queen.
