First Poster for 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' Revealed


First Poster for 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' Revealed


'Entertainment Weekly' has exclusively revealed the promotional poster for funnyman Seth Meyers' upcoming talk show, 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'

Meyers will be leaving the Weekend Update desk on 'Saturday Night Live' to take over for Jimmy Fallon as host of the 'Late Night' program on NBC, after Fallon moves up an hour to take over 'The Tonight Show' from its current host Jay Leno.

After manning the 'SNL' Weekend Update desk for eight seasons, Meyers will be moving on to a bigger desk on a bigger stage. After Meyer's 'SNL' departure, Weekend Update will be helmed by Cecily Strong, who has shared the desk with Meyers this season.

Meyers is no stranger to 'Late Night''s executive producer Lorne Michaels, who is also the man behind 'Saturday Night Live,' for which Meyers has been a cast member and writer since 2001. Meyers looks fresh off of the Weekend Update desk in the poster, and here's hoping he can bring the same smart humor that we love from him on 'SNL', to brighten up our weeknights as well.

The poster also features the premiere date, Monday, Feb. 24. The new 'Late Night' will premiere at 12:35 p.m., after Jimmy Fallon's first night holding the reins of 'The Tonight Show.' The date falls right in the middle of NBC's Sochi Olympics coverage, when the network's ratings are at their highest.

Check out Meyers' poster here.
