'SNL' will say goodbye to eight-year veteran Bill Hader this weekend, potentially Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen as well during the Ben Affleck-hosted season finale, but newly-minted 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers isn't going anywhere yet. The 'Weekend Update' host and head writer will remain with the sketch comedy series through 2014, before taking over Jimmy Fallon's late-night hosting gig. Find out how long Seth Meyers sticks around for inside!
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Just yesterday we learned that 'Arrested Development' season 4 had yet to reveal all of its guest stars, even as we approach the May 26 debut of all 15 Netflix episodes, but it seems another major name has slipped out of the bag. 'The Office' and 'The Hangover' star Ed Helms will put in an appearance for 'Arrested Development's' return, and you don't have to wait to see it!
For weeks, even months now we've heard the buzzing rumors all-but-confirming that Jimmy Fallon would take over NBC's 'Tonight Show' from Jay Leno, with 'SNL' vet Seth Meyers likely to replace Fallon as the host of NBC's 'Late Night.' Leno and Fallon even collaboratively joked about the transition on April Fools, but has Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show' takeover been officially confirmed? Hear the latest chatter inside!
Far-flung a future as it might seem to imagine Jimmy Fallon at the helm of 'The Tonight Show' in New York by the year 2014, it's even stranger to consider the next generation of late-night wars being set up. If indeed Jimmy Fallon leaves behind NBC's 'Late Night' for 'The Tonight Show' at any point in the future, who might replace him in the subsequent slot? Is 'SNL' veteran and current head writer Seth Meyers on the short list?
After yesterday's report that Jimmy Fallon would take over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno early next year, both hosts took the stage on their respective shows last night and delivered their opening monologues. One joked about the news; the other did not. It's probably not that hard to figure out who's who.
For as much as we've enjoyed Conan O'Brien's role as the host of his own TBS show 'Conan,' Jimmy Fallon's increasingly strong work on 'Late Night,' and even Jay Leno's seemingly peaceful return to 'The Tonight Show,' a new storm on the late-night front might be brewing. Some sources are saying that NBC executives have quietly begun searching for Fallon's replacement, in which case Fallon would take over for Leno as host of 'The Tonight Show' in the next few years. Is there any truth to the rumor?
Last night on Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey was a guest but her performance didn't even make it to 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.' Before the show, Jimmy, Mariah, The Roots and a bunch of schoolkids got together to sing a stripped down performance of Mariah's holiday classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and that might've won Christmas in the process.
