The best part about Saturday Night Live for me lately is Seth Meyers and the Weekend Update. Time for Seth to move on to bigger and better things following in the footsteps of another SNL cast member Jimmy Fallon. Seth has officially been hired to host Late Night!

Next year Fallon is of course taking over for Jay Leno on the Tonight Show and that’s when Meyers will begin hosting Late Night on NBC. That’s the kind of promotion you dream of!

NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed the hiring as he said:

“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.”

This Saturday Ben Affleck will host the season finale and Kanye West will be the musical guest.
