Amy Poehler Co-Anchoring Weekend Update Again?

From Entertainment Weekly:

NBC is bringing in the big guns to help launch its new Thursday night comedy lineup this fall. Actually, more like big gun: Amy Poehler.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Poehler will reunite with Seth Meyers behind the anchor desk for Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday on Sept. 17. The Poehler-ized Update will lead into the second season premiere of Poehler’s Parks and Recreation at 8:30 pm, followed by the return of The Office at 9, and the debut of the new comedy Community at 9:30. (30 Rock returns October 15.)

Wait — there’s more…

Poehler, who just scored a second consecutive supporting actress Emmy nod for SNL (word is she wisely submitted the “Palin Rap” episode), will co-anchor SNLWUT with Meyers the following Thursday (Sept. 24) as well. It’s unclear who (if anyone) he’ll be paired with for SNLWUT‘’s four scheduled episodes after that.

Amy and Seth, together again! Woo-hoo, right?!

Kevin Smith confirmed at Comic-Con over the weekend that SNL's Fred Armisen will appear in his upcoming buddy-cop comedy A Couple of Dicks, which stars Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Adam Brody & Seann William Scott.
Another reason to see what promises to be the best buddy cop comedy of the decade.
