Why is 'Eindelijk, het is weekend' or '...het is de weekend' incorrect?

Yes, weekend actually takes het (not de) as its article, but in sentence such as above, where there already is a 'het' for 'it' you would leave out the article. So, 'Eindelijk, het is het weekend' is not said.

"Finally it is weekend!" is not a correct English sentence. You need the definite article. "Finally it's the weekend!"

Yeah, this sentence was removed from our database a while ago. Not sure why it's still showing up...
