Seth Meyers Officially Set to Replace Jimmy Fallon on "Late Night"

Earlier this morning, as I was writing about Kristen Wiig's deplorable stint as host of "Saturday Night Live," I was talking about how most of us are so much more fond of cast members after they've left the show, while it's rare that we love current cast members (at least those that have been long enough to wear out their welcome). Seth Meyers is actually one of those rare cast members who I can't imagine liking more, and unlike Fallon's rise to "Late Night," I'm completely confident in Meyers' ability to take over Fallon's show. As has been rumored for months, that move has now been made official.

The other shoe in that scenario, of course, is who will replace Seth Meyers on "Weekend Update," a decision that won't likely be made until mid-summer. I am still rooting for John Mulaney, which seems at least somewhat more likely because NBC surprisingly did not pick up his sitcom, despite lots of buzz.

    I guess this also means that Mulaney's in line for the White House Correspondents' dinner soon.

    my thoughts exactly for those last couple of lines....NBC must have known wht was going down bc I can NOT understand why they wouldnt pick Mulaney's show up (he's amazing)...I hope he becomes head writer and the anchor of WU

    Yay?

    Well can't be worse than Jimmy. Still, by the time Daily Show and Colbert are over, if I'm not on Netflix/playing some random game, then I'm watching Ferguson. Only guy I'll watch on T.V. that late, really.

    Ferguson is the best for the wacky/thoughtful combination, sans politics. Fallon has no depth. I wonder if Meyers would try and push his weekend update, Stewart/Colbert angle with his show.

    This is great news. There is an enormous likability factor to Seth Meyer's mannerism and brand of funny. Most importantly, he seems to be equally liked by men as well as women.

    I am looking forward to not going to bed early in 2014 (or was it 2015? WHEN IS LENO GONNA RETIRE?).
