Seth Meyers gets Weekend Update job

Seth MyersThe ascension of Seth Meyers continues. Not only does he continue in his role as co-head writer of Saturday Night Live (and with Tina Fey's departure, his influence on the writing and sketch selection will likely be much greater), but he has also been named to the co-anchor spot of "Weekend Update," alongside Amy Poehler.

According to this article, Meyers was chosen for his writing skills and his chemistry with Poehler in the "WU" auditions. Like Fey before him, Meyers will rarely be seen outside of "WU," though I'm sure he and Poehler will keep doing "The Needlers," one of the few funny recurring sketches from last year.
