as a special guest. Poehler was promoted from featured player to full cast member in her first season on the show, making her the first woman and the third person to have earned this distinction (after Harry Shearer

and Eddie Murphy).[16] Beginning with the 2004–2005 season, she co-anchored "Weekend Update" with Tina Fey, replacing the newly departed Jimmy Fallon. In a TV Guide
TV Guide
interview, Fey said that with Poehler co-anchoring, there now is "double the sexual tension". When Fey left after the 2005–2006 season to devote time to the sitcom she created, 30 Rock, Seth Meyers joined Poehler at the anchor desk. In 2008, Poehler was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series,[17] the first SNL cast member recognized in this category. She was heavily favored to win by many critics, but ultimately lost to Jean Smart

On the October 25, 2008 episode, it was announced by "Weekend Update" co-anchor Seth Meyers, who anchored the segment alone, " Amy Poehler

Poehler's memoir, Yes Please, was published on October 28, 2014.[43] She explained in a promotional interview with National Public Radio (NPR) that she was "used to writing in characters and not really writing about myself ... it was easier to share the early parts of my life rather than my own current events."

Golden Globe Awards
ceremony for the third successive time in 2015, confirming prior to the event that the third time would be their last.[40] Rolling Stone magazine wrote afterward that the pair "left no superstar unscathed during their riotous opening monologue," in which they "casually roasted the assembled masses".
