NBC announced today that when Jimmy Fallon takes over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno, Seth Meyers will slide into Jimmy’s spot as the host of Late Night. Yeah, typing that made me picture Seth sliding into Jimmy’s spot and I don’t know how I feel about that image.
Because what late night really needs is more white men, Seth will take over Late Night next spring and Lorne Michaels will executive produce. Here’s what the head bitch at NBC had to say about this:
“We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at SNL‘s Weekend Update desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise”.
Charles Ramsey, Tan Mom and Sweet Brown were all ROBBED! Since Up All Night was finally thrown into the dead pile, I was hoping that Maya Rudolph as Ava would host Late Night… Oh well, hopefully this means that Stefan will finally take over Weekend Update. It’s his destiny.
