We’re just a few weeks away from the Sochi Olympics which means the late night switch on NBC is right around the corner. While Jimmy Fallon is going to stepping into Jay Leno’s shoes on The Tonight Show, someone was going to have to step into Fallon’s shoes on his Late Night show and that ended up being SNL star Seth Meyers.
The SNL takeover of NBC continues with Meyers taking over for Fallon on Late Night and just like we saw Fallon’s first Tonight Show promo debut during NBC”s NFL Playoff coverage this weekend, Meyers new promo is here just in time for the return of NBC’s nightly lineup of shows.
Unlike the Fallon promos for The Tonight Show, the new Meyers Late Night promo isn’t teasing any next chapter history for the show he’s taking over. But the promo represents the type of show we’re going to get with Meyers running things and we cannot wait for the premiere.
Many believe that it will just be an extended version of Weekend Update, a segment of SNL he’s leaving to host Late Night. But Meyers will continue what Fallon started and add his own twists to the job. Both Fallon and Meyers have strong followings which means NBC’s late night lineup is stacked for success and these promos make us wish time would just hurry up and get us to the premieres of both shows.
