Seth says farewell


(NBC) — This weekend the first move of NBC’s late night shake-up will take place.

It’s the last show for “Saturday Night Live” star Seth Meyers before he takes over the “Late Night” hosting duties vacated by Jimmy Fallon, who is in turn moving to “The Tonight Show”.

Meyers has had more than a decade of fun in the pressure cooker that is “Saturday Night Live”.

“There’s nothing quite like working under that time constraint of SNL to sort of draw you close with people, and I’m going to miss that a lot,” he says.

He’ll also miss the Weekend Update desk, where he’s had a new co-anchor this season, Cecily Strong.

“She’s required literally no breaking in. She’s so good at it. She’s a total pro,” Meyers says. “I thought she’d be good. She’s blowing me away by how fast she’s as good as she is right now.”

“Late Night with Seth Meyers” will premiere Monday, February 24th at 12:30 am. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
