Weekend Update Thursday

Weekend Update Summer Edition is a Weekend Update-only spinoff of Saturday Night Live, airing Thursday nights during the summer off-season. For its first three seasons, it was known as Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update Thursday, and aired during the regular SNL season. The series premiered on October 10, 2008.

The normal cast does perform, and the montage is the same as the normal show, except with no host, or monologue and musical guest, and goes right to Weekend Update. Most episodes featured a cold-open sketch, though this was dropped for the first two episodes of the fourth season.
