Really?! Yes — Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers reunited on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ on June 25, recreating their beloved ‘SNL’ ‘Weekend Update’ bit in a new round of ‘Really!?!’ WATCH it here!
We missed you, Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers. It’s been too long since we’ve seen the hilarious duo banter back and forth since their days as co-hosts on Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update.” Our dreams came true when they reunited on Late Night with Seth Meyers on June 25, recreating their hilarious bit “Really!?! with Seth and Amy.”
It wouldn’t truly be a Seth and Amy reunion without a sweet round of “Really!?!” In the brilliant segment, Amy, 43, and Seth, 41, comment on current events and people’s lack of common sense by screaming “Really!?!” LOL. On June 25 there were a lot of “really’s” to go around.
After an editor from Sports Illustrated tweeted a link to a video of England’s goal against Norway in the Women’s World Cup, saying “And here some people (ahem @Andy_Benoit) argue that women’s soccer isn’t worth watching,” to which Andy Benoit responded, “Not women’s soccer….women’s sports in general not worth watching” that deserved a major “really!” They replayed the incredible goal, while next showing a clip of golfer Billy Horschel missing the hole from inches away. So really what is more interesting?!
It was great to see Seth and Amy reunite. We missed their dynamic! Amy and Seth were co-anchors on “Weekend Update” from 2006-2008, and their most popular running gag was “Really!?! with Seth and Amy.” They made fun of a ton of celebrities and public figures including Rod Blagojevich and Michael Vick. Amy left in 2008 to give birth to her first child, and Seth took on the segment alone before being joined by Cecily Strong from 2013-2014. They need to reunite more often — really!
