By now we all know what’s happening in the late night landscape, right? Well, if you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what we are talking about, first, you should read this blog more often because we’ve been talking about it on the regular. Also, don’t worry, let us fill you in on all the details!

Jimmy Fallon is taking over for Jay Leno as host of ‘The Tonight Show’, which will appropriately be called; ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’. ‘SNL’ Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers will be taking over for Jimmy Fallon as host of his own late night show, again, appropriately called ‘Late Night w/ Seth Meyers’. You can read all about it here.

‘SNL’ has now unveiled who will be taking over for Seth Meyers as he departs the ‘Weekend Update’ update chair and this person is no stranger to the late night sketch comedy show either. Comedian and head writer for ‘Saturday Night Live’ Colin Jost will be occupying the Weekend Update anchor desk, but fans of ‘SNL’ have no need to fret. Co-anchor Cecile Strong will still be a ‘Weekend Update’ fixture, as she will be co-host of the pop culture headline segment.

Ironically, Colin Jost made his television debut on ‘Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon’ performing stand up, which you can watch below.

Do you think Colin Jost and Cecile Strong will be a good pair on ‘Weekend Update’? Let us know in the comment section below.
