Not that the Republican National Convention lacked for its own special breed of entertainment night after night, but the political arena at least managed to bring SNL out of summer break early. Watch Colin Jost and Michael Che bring Weekend Update to Cleveland with the requisite Pokémon GO sketch you never wanted, plus bonus Kate McKinnon!

SNL won’t return for Season 41 until at least September, but considering their comparatively light workloads, Weekend Update hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che are ending their summer breaks early to take on the political conventions.

We’ve still a long, long summer to go before SNL returns for Season 42 this fall, but if NBC keeps the cut sketches rolling, we might just make it. The latest picks up with Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, as a cut short from his December outing puts Beck Bennett in a birthday roast gone horribly awry.
