Count Saturday Night Live's Michael Che among the electorate who are "politicked out."

"The world is burning down and we also gotta deal with this?" Che told Adweek in an interview this morning in Cleveland, at the site of the Republican National Convention. "There's so many issues now that are very controversial, very high-stakes comedy that could be a lot more interesting than Donald Trump's hair or Hillary Clinton being stiff."

Che's Weekend Update co-anchor Colin Jost agrees, "It's a weird tone for right now."

Still, the Weekend Update team will host special editions of the SNL staple from Cleveland tonight and from Philadelphia, site of the DNC, next Wednesday.
