Weekend Update head writer:
Pete Schultz (2011)

Michael Che (May 2013)
Dennis McNicholas
Nimesh Patel (new)
Josh Patten (2012)
Katie Rich (Dec 2013)

Nice to see Streeter promoted to writing supervisor.

Interesting that they have now split Weekend Update into its own section in the credits. As I was observing, I started noticing some names missing from the main crawl and thought back to bjdwsm's post, so I wondered if such was to happen. Also surprised to see Che listed under the WU writers; does he not write sketches anymore? But most of all, it's nice to see that Katie Rich is now back once and for all.

As bjdwsm mentioned, Rob Klein (2007), Chris Kelly (2011), Sarah Schneider (Apr 2011), Jeremy Beiler (2014), and last season's hires Zack Bornstein, Joanna Bradley and Drew Michael (Update writer) are gone.
- I had a feeling Zack Bornstein was gonna be gone, if only because I don't recall seeing his being attributed with anything last season.
- I have a couple of things for Joanna Bradley ("Cherry Grove" w/ Beiler & Kate, "World Peace Rap" w/ Beck and Will Stephen). Drew Michael was an Update writer, IIRC.
- Can't help but wonder if Beiler left on his own. He seemed like too successful an SNL writer to be let go.
- The biggest thing here, though, is Kelly, Schneider, and ten-year veteran/one-time co-head writer Rob Klein being gone.
