."Vital Information" was a recurring segment on All That. It appeared from the first six seasons, and was revived in season 10. Lori Beth Denberg (s1-4) (later Danny Tamberelli(s5/6) and Lil' JJ during the relaunch) delivered one liners, usually three in a row.  It can be seen as the All That version of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live. Because All That is limited to a single half-hour, as opposed to the 90-minute SNL, there was no time allotted for an actual newscast. It also takes place at a newsdesk, and both skit names involve giving the viewers some sort of news. The similarity is strengthened in the final season of All That, where JJ would only appear in "Vital Information". At the time where Tina Fey was a Weekend Update anchor, she was also head writer, it was the only sketch she would appear in. When Seth Meyers achieved the position after her departure, Meyers also relegated his regular skit appearances to Update.
