saturday night live seth meyers weekend update replacement colin jost head writer

It's funny how many people are getting bumped up the comedic line of succession when Jay Leno retires from The Tonight Show!

Well, not ha-ha funny, but you catch our drift!

NBC will fill his Tonight Show chair with Saturday Night Live standout Jimmy Fallon in February, but that move of course leaves a vacated post at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon!

The network decided to go with funny man Seth Meyers, but when he heads for Late Night that'll leave another empty chair at SNL's Weekend Update desk!

SNL has finally decided on his replacement and it looks like they're promoting from within their own ranks!

They're giving the job to the sketch comedy show's head writer Colin Jost!

We're admittedly somewhat surprised every one of NBC's comedic promotions has been given to a white male, especially considering all the heat they've taken lately for a staggering lack of diversity, but that doesn't mean Colin won't do a fine job!

SNL tweeted out this congratulatory announcement:

Colin and his relatively new co-anchor Cecily Strong will do Weekend Update together for the first time on March 1st! We hope they knock it out of the park!

Watch one of Colin's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon stand-up routines (below) and let us know if U think he can handle his new job!

    "We're admittedly somewhat surprised every one of NBC's comedic promotions has been given to a white male" …I guess we're forgetting about SNL's last head writer and the women that have filled the Weekend Update desk (Fey, Poehler, Strong, Curtin).
