Being that Dilbert dominated the news cycle throughout the week, it was only fitting Saturday Night Live introduced a version of the character during its latest “Weekend Update” segment. Halfway through the weekly sketch, the comic strip character debuted on the live sketch comedy played by SNL newcomer Michael Longfellow. The character then explained the ongoing Scott Adams controversy.
Longfellow’s character was the first of four on Saturday’s segment, leading into a funny sketch with Mikey Day and Punkie Johnson, before bringing back Sarah Sherman’s Sarah News segment-within-a-segment. One of the longest Updates of the season, fans couldn’t get enough of the oversized sketch. Keep scrolling to see what people are saying.
The writers of the Weekend Update are killing Colin and Michael. 🤣🤣 #SNL

For the Best
It doesn’t seem like Weekend Update used to end this late back in the Stone Age of the 90s. But it’s probably a solid decision to limit the number of tedious sketches in the last half hour of the show
