Late Night With Seth Myers Set To Debut This Week: There’s No Business Like Late Night Show Business

We are entering a new age in late night television. With Seth Myers set to take over from Jimmy Fallon, who, as you all know, took over Jay Leno’s signature hosting duties on the The Tonight Show last week, every night will be a Saturday Night Live party!

Yes, in as much as Jimmy Fallon and Seth Myers are talented alumni of SNL, the brains and braun behind Late Night Television in 2014 and beyond will be none other than SNL creator, Lorne Michaels.

Charged with producing The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Seth Myers, Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, I think it is safe to say we have a new King of Late Night in the incomparable Lorne Michaels.

Where does he find the energy? I can barely find time in my day to write this article!

But energy he has – and intuitive and creative talent, which makes him absolutely perfect for transitioning the evolving landscape of Late Night TV.

Jimmy Fallon’s first week hosting The Tonight Show swept the ratings and was a huge success. He stamped his signature on this show in a manner that embraced the younger demographic without isolating the older one. It was entertainment at its very best.

I do miss Jay Leno but have no doubt that he will reappear on television at some. point down the road – but in a different format.

So, this week, we are celebrating Seth Myers’ brilliant brand of comedic skills when he takes over the reins from Jimmy Fallon. I cannot wait to see him in his element. This is what television is all about – putting a smile on people’s faces and, for one small moment, helping them to forget their troubles.

Late Night With Seth Myers debuts on Monday, January 24th at 12:35 AM on NBC.

Congratulations, Seth! Can’t wait to see your show!
