Seth Meyers Calls His SNL Exit A 'Really Exciting Time'


Saturday Night Live will be down three of its biggest stars when it returns this fall, but that hasn't dampened Seth Meyers' spirits about returning to the "Weekend Update" anchor desk.

"[It's] certainly a rebuilding effort, but I don't think it's any bigger than ones that have happened historically. It's a really exciting time to be at the show. I'm really glad I'm going back for the first-half of next year," Meyers said at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews on Wednesday. "I think the most fun I ever had at the show was the first year with Andy [Samberg], Bill [Hader], Jason [Sudeikis] and Kristen [Wiig] when they call came in."
