'Late Night with Seth Meyers' promo: Guess who's not ready for airtime? VIDEO

SETH-MEYERS

@LateNight Seth hasn’t tweeted once yet. latenightseth.tumblr.com has been reserved, but bears no posts. Yet there is evidence online that Seth Meyers will, in fact, take over Late Night this February — thanks to a brand-new YouTube account, which recently posted its very first video: a bouncy promo for Meyers’ new show.

'SNL': Seth Meyers' new 'Weekend Update' co-anchor is ...

Saturday Night Live castmember Cecily Strong will co-anchor Weekend Update with Seth Meyers, Lorne Michaels revealed to the New York Times.
