Seth Meyers Is Taking Over for Jimmy Fallon on NBC's Late Night

  • 60comments

NBC returned to the Saturday Night Live factory when shopping for its next late-night host. The network has officially named the sketch show's head writer and "Weekend Update" anchor as the lucky guy who gets to take over for Jimmy Fallon when Fallon departs for The Tonight Show in 2014. 

And now for the boring stuff! Meyers was rumored to be the frontrunner for Fallon's spot, so this news isn't exactly a surprise. Saturday Night Live head honcho Lorne Michaels will executive-produce Late Night with Seth Meyers, and current Late Night with Jimmy Fallon producer Michael Shoemaker will stay on board for Meyers' version. 

Personally, I think Meyers will be a fine host even if he isn't the sexiest choice. He may not have the goofy boyish charm of Fallon, but his personality seems well-suited for hosting late-night talk shows. What do you think?
