Happy Monday: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Jane Curtin Return to Host SNL40’s ‘Weekend Update’

Happy Monday: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Jane Curtin Return to Host SNL40's 'Weekend Update'

Among the highlights of the "Saturday Night Live" 40th-anniversary show last night was Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Jane Curtin returning behind the Weekend Update desk. (Fey and Poehler famously became the sketch-comedy show’s first two-women anchor team in 2004; Curtin manned the desk from 1976-1980.) 

Watch Fey, Poehler, and Curtin make meta-jokes about "SNL" and vaporize Fox News for encroaching on Weekend Update’s "fake news" territory while welcoming guest appearances from Emma Stone channeling Gilda Radner and Melissa McCarthy doing her best Chris Farley impression (she’s got a van down by the river!).
