Meyers and Poehler did their first “Really?!? With Seth & Amy” of the season last night during the premiere of Weekend Update Thursdays. The pair devoted the segment to perpetrators of recent outbursts such as Congressman Joe Wilson, Serena Williams and Kanye West saying, “No one is impressed when you take your stands against 19-year-old girls, tiny Asian ladies or the first black president.
