After years behind the Weekend Update desk, the terrific Seth Meyers is leaving 'SNL' to pursue other projects. And by pursue other projects, we mean "take over as host of 'Late Night' while Jimmy Fallon ascends to 'The Tonight Show.'" Of course, something as important, popular and prominent as Meyers doesn't depart without some kind of send-off and the show sent him off in style.
Just a few weeks' time will see the late night landscape dramatically shift, as 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon finally takes the 'Tonight Show' throne from Jay Leno, and 'SNL' veteran Seth Meyers joins 'Late Night' in his wake. Fallon has tapped cinema icon Will Smith and Irish rockers U2 for his inaugural 'Tonight Show' gig, but who will join Seth Meyers on the couch?
A few weeks from now, the late-night TV landscape will look drastically different, what with current 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon taking over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno, while 'SNL''s resident Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers graduates to 'Late Night' in turn. The first promos for these takeovers have emerged, but will everything be ready in time for opening night?
