It was the most un-kept secret in Hollywood that Seth Meyers would take over Late Night once Jimmy Fallon moved onto The Tonight Show in 2014. But it’s been made official, Meyers will move into Fallon’s shoes after he moves on to the legendary Tonight Show.
SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels will also be the executive producer of Late Night with Seth Meyers. He was previously named executive producer of The Tonight Show earlier this year when the network announced Fallon would take over for Jay Leno.
As of now there is no premiere date announced, but NBC has said Leno’s exit and Fallon’s debut will coincide with the Winter Olympics coverage in 2014 hoping to build off Olympic excitement. All three shows will broadcast from NBC’s New York headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. NBC announced in April that Tonight would relocate back to New York from Burbank, California.
"We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation," NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said in the official announcement.
