Why SNL's decision to name Michael Che and Colin Jost co-head writers is baffling

  • Last season was a triumph for Saturday Night Live, but head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider exited over the summer. Now SNL is returning Jost to a head writer position, which he abruptly stepped down from in 2015. “Replacing Kelly and Schneider with Jost and Che seems like a further pivot away from the writing that made last season of SNL feel so fresh,” says Joanna Robinson. “To distance oneself from a highly-acclaimed, award-winning tone is a baffling choice, but Lorne Michaels has proven us all wrong before.”
