Meyers is set to take over the show from Fallon in February 2014 when Fallon moves up an hour and inherits "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno. Meyers is excited about his new gig, but admitted there is one question he gets from fans more than any other.
“People are like, ‘Do you get The Roots?’ Like, they think like I’m just gonna get The Roots," Meyers said. "I think they think it’s like, you’re going to college and I just get your stuff.”
Meyers did admit that he'll probably be complaining about The Roots, though not because he can't have them. Meyer's "Late Night" set will be two floors up from Fallon's "Tonight Show" set, so he figures he'll be calling down a lot to say, "Keep it down!"
In the meantime, Meyers will be returning to anchor "Weekend Update" on "Saturday Night Live" in the fall and won't leave the show until his "Late Night" launches.
Even after he leaves "Weekend Update," though, The Hollywood Reporter's Lacey Rose says his new show will feel familiar to his fans. "While there will be ‘Weekend Update’ elements -- complete with characters and fake news -- to his show, he said he has no plans to abandon the traditional monologue," she reported.
"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" continues -- until February -- every weeknight at 12:37 a.m. ET on NBC.
