Seth Meyers 'Two Shows Away From Cutting Ties' With 'SNL'

Back when it first announced that Seth Meyers would become the next host of Late Night, Lorne Michaels teased the possibility that Meyers could stick around Saturday Night Live as a Weekend Update host. I was pretty against this idea, feeling that a move like that would be too much like the guy who graduated still hanging around his old high school.

Thankfully, it sounds like that possibility isn't on the table anymore, as Seth Meyers told TheWrap, "We feel pretty strongly that I'm two shows away from cutting ties. ... I mostly just think its too hard to try to do two of these things at the same time."

Good move, Meyers.

The soon-to-be-former Weekend Update host also told TheWrap to expect Cecily Strong to get a new partner after he leaves SNL, saying, "It's still up in the air, but Cecily comes from that Chicago ensemble world and … she loves playing off of someone, so I wouldn't be surprised too see her with someone else."

Any guesses on who will join Strong at the Weekend Update desk? Bobby Moynihan and Kate McKinnon would be good, but SNL would sacrifice on of its two strongest Update guest castmembers to make that happen.

The first episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers airs on Feb. 24.
