"Saturday Night Live" has become a staple of today's modern lifestyle. The SNL "Weekend Update" segment has grown with the show since it took its first steps in the 1970's. As seen during the fun "SNL" news segment on the Saturday, Feb. 1 show, Seth Meyers, the most recent longtime co host of that segment, finished his final broadcast with a surprise from his former cast mates.
"SNL" celebrates Seth Meyers last hurrah as long time "Weekend Update" anchor.
Since 2001 Seth Meyers has been making people laugh as a head writer and cast member of "Saturday Night Live". His most recent co-anchor of "Weekend Update", Cecily Strong, surprised Meyers with a tear filled and fun goodbye joined by a few of the shows alumni. Meyers' former co-anchor, Amy Poehler and Bill Hader, in character as news correspondent Stefon who faux married Seth when Hader bid goodbye last year, joined him at the news desk.
Stefon brought along his joyous flamboyant love in a fun filled farewell. Amy Poehler played straight to Hader's Stefon stating to Meyers “We are so proud of you. You’ve been the heart of the show for over a decade”. Andy Samberg joined in the surprise stepping over to join everyone at the desk to sing his own farewell tribute. Ending the festive segment was Fred Armisen in character as the former New York Governor David Paterson as he made a quick appearance blindly looking for the camera lens as he took it over.
Seth Meyers is moving to a new home at NBC in his new position as host of "Late Night".
Seth Meyers is taking a few steps over at NBC to take over as the host of "Late Night" from SNL pal Jimmy Fallon as Fallon takes the helm as host of "The Tonight Show" for the NBC family. On Feb. 24 Meyers is set to begin his hosting position of "Late Night" with his first guest slated to be Amy Poehler. Poehler should be bringing with her a wonderful transition moment for Seth Meyers to celebrate as he waves goodbye to his "SNL" days and steps into his new role in "Late Night with Seth Meyers".
Life is about moving on to new experiences. Keep life moving; never be afraid to dance.
