Leno, Fallon and Meyers, NBC Late Night

Finally got round to caring about the NBC late night shuffle: apparently Leno's quitting The Tonight Show (for good this time?), with Fallon taking over, which might mean that the show would go to New York so Fallon and his crew don't have to move across the country and SNL's Seth Meyers is taking over Late Night. All that happening next February. I think I got it straight, yes?

I haven't been watching The Tonight Show all that much ever since Late Night took over on CNBC on weekends. But whenever I do get to watch episodes on TV, I only watch for some of the easier to digest segments like Thank You Notes and the monologue. I really don't care for the audience participation made up game shows which quite frankly, make little sense to me. I think regular viewing of The Late Late Show has spoilt me rotten for other shows.

Seth Meyers holds up the Weekend Update desk alright (but I find the guests they bring on annoying), but the Late Night desk? I don't know. We'll just have to wait and see.
