The comedian has hosted the Weekend Update segment of the US sketch show since 2014.
In the Saturday (23 October) edition, hosted by the series’ former cast member and writer Jason Sudeikis, Jost’s overall episode count came to 155.

When he first began hosting the segment, it was to replace Meyers alongside Cecily Strong. He began hosting with Michael Che later that year.
