There was A group of cameos that we expected "Saturday Night Live" would include when Seth Meyer, a former lead writer and host of "Weekend Update", returned for his episode back home: Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon and Fred Armisen could have added a fun recoil. Element of the episode.
Those earlier faces of "SNL" were noticeably absent. But nothing more than the famous "Stefon" character of Bill Hader, Ed Hardy's nightlife correspondent who married Seth in "Weekend Update" after years of flirting at the desk.
The last unofficial "Saturday Night Live" couple was last seen four years ago and we would be lying if we said we were not desperately waiting for an update. Are you still married? Is Stefon Jr. on the way? Shy, Stefon's leather-clad lawyer (John Mulaney), still offers questionable legal advice?

But the appearance of Meyers' "Weekend Update" gave us only a new segment of "Really?!" that he popularized during his "Update" mandate and since then he has continued as host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers".
Would it have been more fun with his old deskmate Amy Poehler? Of course. But we'll settle for "Really? With Seth, Colin (Jost) and Michael (Che)."
Even so, fans on Twitter were less than delighted with the lack of a Hader cameo.
"I'm so sad that I did not even get ONE cameo from a former cast member," a user wrote. "I thought I could at least count on Stefon."
"I will never trust anyone again," wrote another, referring to "SNL" promotions that included old videos and photos of Meyers and Stefon together.
Another user was happy to get any reference from Stefon at all, sharing a promotional photo of Meyers SNL looking with love at a photo of Hader in disguise.
Other he got smart referring to the "Weekend Update" bit, Meyers actually participated on this occasion: "Really? Weekend update with Seth but not Stefon? Really?"
