Seth Myers To Succeed Jimmy Fallon

SNL's Seth Myers will take over for Jimmy Fallon as the host of Late Night when Fallon replaces Jay Leno on The Tonight Show early next year.
"Late Night with Seth Meyers" will be shot at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, with Lorne Michaels serving as executive producer and with Michael Shoemaker remaining as producer. "Since 1982, there have been three 'Late Night' hosts starting with David Letterman, and Seth couldn't be in better company," states Lorne Michaels. Meyers is currently ending his 12th season on "Saturday Night Live" and his eighth season as head writer. He won a Emmy in 2011 as one of the writers of Justin Timberlake's musical monologue and was nominated in the same category last year. In his seventh year as Weekend Update host, Meyers has five additional Emmy nominations for writing.
