Weekend update: Seth Meyers signs off 'SNL'

NEW YORK (AP) - Seth Meyers has departed "Saturday Night Live," just weeks before he begins his new job as host of "Late Night."

Meyers co-hosted "Weekend Update" on the NBC sketch-comedy series for eight seasons and was joined for his farewell newscast by "SNL" alumni Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen.

They told Meyers they had come to take him "to the other side."

Meyers called his "SNL" tenure "the job I always wanted." He joined the cast in 2001.

He'll take over at NBC's "Late Night" on Feb. 24.

"SNL" head writer Colin Jost will replace Meyers at the "Weekend Update" anchor desk alongside Cecily Strong. He signs on March 1.

Seth Meyers is the reason we stopped watching SNL live.......waited for On Demand so that we could FF.
Wish they'd have replaced him with someone more like Kevin Nealon, Colin Quinn, or Dennis Miller.

hope cecily improves quickly. her delivery and timing are weak, and it's sometimes difficult to understand her pronunciation. SNL, i think you should have done better!

Generally, the people who give two $hits, or even one, are the people like you, who take the time to read the article and then expend even more time to write a comment. Or the people like me, who don't understand the people like you.
