Seth Meyers is ready to take on the world

PASADENA, Calif. — Thanks to his 12 seasons on “Saturday Night Live” — the lion’s share spent as head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor — Seth Meyers is used to staying up late and cracking wise.

Starting Monday, his showtime will get pushed even further back and his comedy skills will get stretched out over five days as he begins his stint as the host of “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on NBC, inheriting the chair from newly installed “Tonight Show” host and former “SNL” buddy Jimmy Fallon.
