 Top 10 SNL Weekend Update Anchors:

10. COLIN QUINN (1998-2000)
9. AMY POEHLER (2004-2008)
8. SETH MEYERS (2006-2013)

6. JANE CURTIN (1976-1980)
5. NORM MACDONALD (1994-1997)

3. TINA FEY (2000-2006)
2. KEVIN NEALON (1991-1994)
1. CHEVY CHASE (1975-1976)

Honestly, I probably feel Kevin Nealon deserved top spot in my heart of hearts, but Chevy Chase invented the whole thing and was just as good, it's just that the art of ''fake newsing'' had been perfected by the time Nealon came, and he was flawless. Also, I wanted to put Bill Murray in at #10, but since he only did it for parts of one season, it didn't seem far to Colin Quinn who, while he didn't live up to the previous three anchors in part because even his regular speaking voice sounds like an illiterate person reading out loud, was the only person worth watching on Saturday Night Live for two and a half seasons (apart from the musical guests).
