After dinner, Michaels asked Dennis if he was interested in doing a show for him, and without hesitation, he accepted the offer.

Dennis landed a spot on Saturday Night Live, where he replaced Christopher Guest as the Weekend Update anchor. The spot was supposed to go to Jon Lovitz, but Lovitz was assigned to other parts of the show and needed the Update segment to do costume changes, so Dennis was allocated to reporting News.

He found out that those that had tried doing the Weekend Update segment as nice guys did not last very long in the role.
