Weekend Update is officially going to the Emmys. NBC confirms that SNL writers and stars Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the 2018 ceremony later this year, while creator Lorne Michaels is getting back involved as well.
One doesn’t set Donald Glover to host SNL and overlook his musical talent. The Atlanta and Solo: A Star Wars Story star will make his SNL hosting debut in May, pulling double-duty with his musical alter-ego Childish Gambino.
NBC’s 30 Rock is the last series to embrace revivals, but the fan-fave meta-comedy may nonetheless get second life. Star Jane Krakowski says 30 Rock revival conversations have at least happened, and could bear fruit before long.
As the wheel of revivals turns, The Office looks like it might be next. Rather than returning for a full series, however, star John Krasinski said he’d rather borrow a page from the show’s O.G. incarnation to make it happen.
If Will & Grace didn’t kick in the TV revival door, Roseanne certainly blew it off the hinges. There’s still a few major TV revivals to ponder, but NBC brass now say Seinfeld or Friends will never happen.
