There’s been a lot of movement as of late ahead of the 40th season of Saturday Night Live. The latest change is Michael Che will return to SNL to co-anchor Weekend Update with Colin Jost. Che was a correspondent on The Daily Show, but with taking on this gig, will leave The Daily Show after his short tenure there.

Cecily Strong, who co-anchored Weekend Update last season, is moving back to being in more sketches. 

After seeing Che on The Daily Show, we think he will do quite well at The Weekend Update desk.
