SETH MEYERS NAMED NEW ‘LATE NIGHT’ HOST

Late Night w/ Seth Meyers

It was announced earlier this year that Jimmy Fallon (host of ‘Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon) will be replacing Jay Leno as host of ‘The Tonight Show’ when Leno retires next year. Once this was announced, the question that kept on emerging was: “Who’s going to replace Jimmy as host of Late Night?” Well, the question has been answered.

Seth Meyers, head writer on ‘SNL’ and anchorman of “Weekend Update” (the mock news show on ‘Saturday Night Live’) will be taking over for Fallon, as host of ‘Late Night’. Lorne Michaels who created ‘SNL’ is also the producer of ‘Late Night’, so everyone can see where the tie-in is, and we couldn’t agree more! Seth has proven he can deliver jokes, monologue or sketch comedy style, and to have a late night platform to be able to deliver his own content will be nothing but hilarious.

Meyers responded to the news, in true comedic fashion: “I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totalled his car,” Meyers quipped. “12:30 on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice.”
