The Weakly News

Show Summary

The Weakly News is a web show in which Last Comic Standing's Iliza Shlesinger plays anchorperson in a humorous mash-up of The Daily Show and Saturday Night Live's Weekend Edition. In a news show format, the show presents both mainstream and bizarre news stories accompanied by a lot of commentary. The show also features Alexis Archer as co-anchor and Brian Gramo as the producer who chimes in from behind the scenes. Unlike other parody news shows, The Weakly News is streamed live and appears to be completely unscripted. After presenting news stories, the three stars engage in an improvised commentary which sometimes goes off in a completely unrelated direction. Each episode is approximately 25 minutes long, and features creative segments such as 'Who Needs to be Shot,' where the hosts discuss newsmakers who are really making the world a bad place, 'Wolf Corner,' a type of charades game where the hosts tell a news story pretending to be wolves, and '15 Minutes of Blame', an angry rant by the host.
