Has Jimmy Fallon's replacement for "Late Night" already been picked? A report from the New York Post says "Saturday Night Live" head writer Seth Meyers is the favorite to take over for Fallon, when he moves on to host "The Tonight Show."
Lorne Michaels, who produces "SNL" and is an executive producer on "Late Night," reportedly wants Meyers to have the job. Tina Fey's name has also been mentioned, but the "30 Rock" star is just too busy. Meyers has been head writer for "SNL" since 2005, and became co-host of "Weekend Update" in 2006.
When Jay Leno leaves "The Tonight Show," which is supposedly happening at some point in 2014, NBC plans to move the show to New York. There are reports that the network is already building a state-of-the-art studio to house the program.
Leno addressed rumors of his departure for the first time Thursday night, jokingly comparing the situation to March Madness, »
