Seth Meyers replacing Jimmy Fallon on ‘Late Night’


Seth Meyers is moving from his ‘‘Weekend Update’’ desk to his own late night show on NBC. The network said Sunday that the 12-year ‘‘Saturday Night Live’’ cast member will replace Jimmy Fallon at the 12:35 a.m. ‘‘Late Night’’ show next year. Fallon is moving up an hour as Jay Leno’s replacement on the ‘‘Tonight’’ show. Meyers was considered the lead candidate for the ‘‘Late Night’’ job ever since Fallon’s promotion was announced. The announcement solidifies Lorne Michaels as the comedy kingmaker at NBC. He’ll be the executive in charge of ‘‘Late Night,’’ “Tonight,’’ and ‘‘Saturday Night Live,’’ which will all originate from New York’s Rockefeller Center. Meyers, 39 and a New Hampshire native, has been the head writer at ‘‘Saturday Night Live’’ for eight seasons. He’s in his seventh year as ‘‘Weekend Update’’ host, to which he devotes all of his on-air time now.
