Seth Meyers Officially Taking Over Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Show!

You're hired!

Seth Meyers is following in another former Saturday Night Live cast member's footsteps…and they're good footsteps to follow in!

SNL is going to have to look high and low for another head writer and Weekend Update anchor because Seth is moving onto Late Night!

While Jimmy Fallon is taking over for Jay Leno next year, Seth will leave Saturday nights for 12:35am Monday-Friday.

NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed the hiring as he said:

"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."

But don't worry, Lorne Michaels isn't throwing a hissy fit over the move because he's also executive producer of Late Night!

Seth commented on the funny job switch that includes the same boss:

"I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car. Twelve-thirty on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice."

We have a feeling Seth will certainly do it justice!

Seth plans to stay on SNL until he has to start prep for Late Night which is expected to begin during or after the Winter Olympics.

From Jimmy to Seth to Kristen Wiig's awesome return as host, it's a good day for the SNL folk!

    Exactly! There have been some great characters and skits here and there over the past few years, but for the most part, the writing sucks.

    Another in a long line of UNfunny SNLers. Why do these late night shows think they have to make a grand announcement a year or more in advance? Nobody really cares.
