Jost is a Harvard grad with a Peabody Award, eight Emmy nominations, and three WGA Awards to his resume, notes the Hollywood Reporter. His first night is March 1.

Obviously, Ann's brother, Ed, doesn't understand the TV ratings system. When ratings are good, you keep going. When ratings are bad, you cancel. What part of that is too hard?

Seems cool, would love to see John Mulaney doing weekend update reporting.

Thanks, Newser, for the weekly update on a show that should have been canceled 30 years ago
