Seth Meyers To Succeed Fallon On Late Night: Bad Decision?
Seth Meyers has been officially chosen to replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night, but was the decision the right one?
Seth Meyers has been regarded as the front runner for the spot, after Jimmy Fallon was announced as taking over for Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. Saturday Night Live executive producer Lorne Michaels has the same role as executive producer for Late Night.
"We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation," NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said. "His years at SNL's Weekend Update desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise."
"I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car," Seth Meyers said. "Twelve-thirty on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice."
But did NBC make the right choice in choosing Seth Meyers for Late Night? How about Stephen Fry over Seth Meyers? Fry's quick wit has served him well in the UK, hosting QI since 2003. Then there's SNL vet Amy Poehler, who gained considerable praise co-hosting the Golden Globes with Tina Fey. Or how about even Anderson Cooper, who seems to be longing for an audience larger than he currently reaches on CNN? A late night talk show could be just the ticket.
Seth Meyers was long regarded as the number one contender for the spot, but with so many less obvious choices out there, we're left wondering if NBC truly made the best choice. What do you think? Did NBC make the right decision in choosing Seth Meyers?
