'Tonight Show,' 'Late Night' roll out promos for new hosts Fallon, Meyers
Late-night television is getting a makeover in February, and NBC has unveiled two new promos showcasing the change in hosts for "The Tonight Show" and "Late Night."
Jimmy Fallon is taking over for Jay Leno on "Tonight" on Feb. 17 and will become the sixth host of the long-running program. Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien have all occupied the famed seat.
Fallon's promo pays tribute to the men who came before him, with notable clips of Carson and Leno, before showing off some of the skits the current "Late Night" host is likely to bring along to his new time slot.
Meyers' promo employs the host himself in a 35-second walk through NBC's Rockefeller Center studios. The "Weekend Update" anchor is leaving "Saturday Night Live" after 12 seasons, but he says his move from studio 8H to 8G is only 30 feet.
"I thought this was way closer to being done," Meyers gasps as he walks into his new, still-under-construction home at "Late Night." In a tweet linking to the clip, he joked that it only took seven takes to get it right.
"Late Night With Seth Meyers" premieres Feb. 24.
