8. Cecily Strong was a great choice for “Weekend Update"
Is this a surprise? Absolutely not. But it’s nice to see high expectations met with solid execution. “Solid” is the word here, as initial week jitters have given way to a performance that has gotten better over the course of this short season. It’s unclear how/if some of her characters can be incorporated into her “Update” persona, but that’s something to worry about at a later date. We know her characters quite well at this point. But we don’t know much about Strong herself. Being a co-anchor will help audiences get to know someone with whom they will be glad they started talking to at a party.
