Despite our repeated requests for consideration for Aisha Tyler, NBC has announced that Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers will be taking over for Jimmy Fallon when he moves to The Tonight Show next year. “No premiere date has been announced, but NBC has said Leno’s exit and Fallon’s debut will coincide with the Winter Olympics coverage in 2014,” says CNN. That would be in February.

You probably recognize Meyers from the SNL “Weekend Update” anchor chair. The 39-year-old has been with that show for 12 years. This also puts him in line to be the next host of The Tonight Show, but there’s a long way to go for that.

Related, Lorne Michaels, the executive producer of SNL will also be behind the scenes at both The Tonight Show and Late Night. Both shows will be in New York now, so there’s more opportunity to sit in on a live audience.

Will you be tuning in?
