Just as Jimmy Fallon finally stepped up to 'The Tonight Show' last week with a star-studded parade of gags, fellow 'SNL' vet Seth Meyers finally made his own way up the ranks with last night's premiere of 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.' The new debut brought not only a spot-on parody of Fallon's "Thank You" sketch, but also some extended animosity between Meyers' first guest Amy Poehler and 8G band leader Fred Armisen.
A few days ago 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' delighted future audiences with news that Seth Meyers' former 'SNL' co-star Fred Armisen had signed on to lead the house band, and now it seems the new 'Late Night' has another beloved 'SNL' staple headed its way. Not only can we expect Bill Hader's revered "Stefon" to make appearances, but the first week's rounds of guests include everyone from Amy Poehler to Kanye West, Lena Dunham, Ian McKellen and more!
Just a few weeks' time will see the late night landscape dramatically shift, as 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon finally takes the 'Tonight Show' throne from Jay Leno, and 'SNL' veteran Seth Meyers joins 'Late Night' in his wake. Fallon has tapped cinema icon Will Smith and Irish rockers U2 for his inaugural 'Tonight Show' gig, but who will join Seth Meyers on the couch?
'Parks and Recreation' and 'Community' may not be the strongest performers on Thursday nights, but remain among NBC's brightest jewels. To that end NBC president Bob Greenblatt has all-but-assured that 'Parks' will return for a seventh season later on this year, hinting at a strong possibility for 'Community''s renewal as well.
The 2014 Golden Globes were a night to remember, not because of the actual awards -- although, it was nice to see films like '12 Years a Slave,' 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'American Hustle' walk away with some of the biggie titles -- but because of host Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and, of course, all the drunken shenanigans one expects from this particular awards show.
The night was packed with big-name celebrities who mostly followed the advice P. Diddy gave when he presented an award, "Keep drinking! It's almost over." So, in case you were watching the premiere of HBO miniseries 'True Detective' or the season 3 premiere of 'Girls,' here's all the best moments from the 2014 Golden Globes that worth watching.
"Welcome to the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and Lee Daniels' 'The Butler' Golden Globes awards," chimed in the famous comediennes, who hosted the live awards ceremony on Sunday, January 12, for the second time.

Watch their full opening monologue from the 2014 Golden Globes awards right here!

The 2014 Golden Globes may have stolen the spotlight this morning with the announcement of its many nominations, but let's face it, the real stars of the show are repeat hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!

Last night saw NBC garnering itself an impressive number of viewers for the train-wreck-maybe-sorta 'Sound of Music Live,' and given all the attention, what better place to promote Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's return to the Golden Globes stage this coming January 2014? See the ladies of '30 Rock' and 'Parks and Recreation' stage their own musical, kinda!
