New host Seth Meyers lands at 'Late Night' Monday

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The last piece of NBC's big talk-show turnover will fall into place Monday when Seth Meyers debuts as host of "Late Night."

Until early this month, Meyers was a "Saturday Night Live" veteran and co-anchor of its "Weekend Update" newscast. Now he's filling the vacancy left by Jimmy Fallon after five years hosting "Late Night."

Fallon, of course, moved up last week to be host of "The Tonight Show," replacing Jay Leno.

Scheduled guests for "Late Night with Seth Meyers" include Vice President Joe Biden and Meyers' former "Weekend Update" co-anchor, Amy Poehler, as well as the band A Great Big World.

Another "SNL" alum, Fred Armisen, will be on hand as Meyers' resident bandleader.

"Late Night" airs at 12:35 a.m. Eastern time.
