I knew this was too good to be true.

An SNL insider is denying a fast-spreading rumor that Kristin Wiig has been named co-anchor of Weekend Update alongside Seth Meyers. “It’s not true,” says the source. “It’s an Internet-fueled rumor.”

Meyers has been flying solo behind the Weekend Update desk since last fall when Amy Poehler departed for Parks and Recreation.

Here’s a thought: Why not pair Meyers with the brilliant Michaela Watkins? Oh, wait, that’s right — she was fired for some inexplicable reason. (Yep, still bitter.)
