Now that Jimmy Fallon is officially taking over Jay Leno’s coveted Tonight Show throne, we need to know — who’s taking over Jimmy’s Late Night seat?!
NBC has yet to make an official announcement, but it seems that SNL head writer and anchor Seth Meyers is the frontrunner for the late night hosting gig! Watch What Happens Live’s Andy Cohen and America’s Got Talent’s Nick Cannon are reportedly also being considered.
In addition to a new host, the show is expected to be reworked so as to lessen its competition with the Tonight Show. It might even switch to a smaller production!
The network is set to make an announcement mid-May, so we’ll just have to keep our eyes and ears open till then!
