Seth Meyers Named Host of LATE NIGHT

May 12, 2013 by  

Seth Meyers is coming to our TVs five nights a week: NBC has confirmed that Meyers will take over LATE NIGHT (replacing Jimmy Fallon, who will be moving on to THE TONIGHT SHOW) in 2014.

“We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at SNL’s ‘Weekend Update’ desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the ‘Late Night’ franchise,” said Bob Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment in a statement. “On behalf of Steve Burke, Ted Harbert and Paul Telegdy, we couldn’t be happier that Seth and Jimmy Fallon will be continuing their careers at NBC after growing up in this network’s late night legacy.”

“I only have to work for Lorne [Michaels, Meyers’ SNL boss and new boss for LATE NIGHT] for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car,” joked Meyers. “12:30 on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice.”
