5. Leslie Jones on 'Weekend Update' (Various)
This is a slight cheat, but there’s no way to leave off Jones’ contributions behind the “Update” desk this Fall. The combination of comedian and platform is perfect, and not only does she bring the house down each time she appears, but she also makes “Update” co-anchor Colin Jost a vital, original presence when she’s around. It’s a damn magic trick at this point, and it’s fantastic to behold each and every time.
