Seth Meyers returning to ‘SNL’ for first half of fall season

Seth Meyers will be taking over “Late Night” once current host Jimmy Fallon moves on to “The Tonight Show.” But that doesn’t mean Meyers is signing off “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. “I’m nowhere near emotionally ready for Saturday to be my last show,” Meyers said Thursday on “Today.” “I wouldn’t be able to handle that.” Fans of “SNL” wouldn’t be too happy either, especially now that Bill Hader has announced that he’s exiting the NBC show and rumors are swirling that cast veterans Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis could be next out the door. Meyers says he’ll be back at “SNL” for the first half of next season. A New Hampshire-bred Red Sox fan, Meyers is the show’s head writer and has manned the “Weekend Update” desk for several years, first alongside Amy Poehler, then on his own.
