It was a brand New Day (or night) at Saturday Night Live this weekend, as new co-anchors Cecily Strong and Colin Jost took over the popular late night show's iconic WEEKEND UPDATE news desk, replacing Seth Myers.
Check out the video below of the pair's debut, as well as some of our favorite zingers below... Great job guys!
"WEEKEND UPDATE" CO-ANCHOR CECILY STRONG - "President Obama this week launched a new effort to help young minority men warning them not to make the same mistakes he did when he was their age such as get high and not take school seriously - unless, of course, they definitely want to be president."
STRONG - "First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign released a video Thursday showing President Obama and Joe Biden exercising by running around the White House. And I think it's probably hard for all of us to picture Joe Biden running around without hearing this music."
"WEEKEND UPDATE" CO-ANCHOR COLIN JOST - "North Korea on Thursday launched four short-range missiles into the East Sea - as retaliation against a wave that knocked down Kim Jong Un."
JOST - "Jason Collins made history this week when he became the first openly gay athlete to play on a major professional sports team. Said Red Sox fans, "HOW ABOUT JEETAH?!""
STRONG - "It was announced this week that rock group Kiss will not play when they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month since they cannot decide on which lineup of the band should perform. Plus, no one will cover their shifts at Radio Shack."
STRONG - "Taco Bell announced this week that it will start selling breakfast foods, including a waffle taco. "Finally!" said people who wear sweatpants out of necessity. The breakfast items are part of Taco Bell's new campaign: Taco Bell: Weigh Más."
