Seth Meyers gets Fallon’s gig

 

After weeks of speculation, NBC officially anointed Seth Meyers to replace Jimmy Fallon as host of Late Night, the talk show that follows the Tonight Show at 12:35 a.m. weeknights.

Saturday Night Live’s head writer and Weekend Update anchor will transition to the talk show when Fallon takes over Tonight from Jay Leno in late February, after NBC’s Winter Olympics from Russia.

“Every discussion led to Seth,” said an NBC source. “He’s brilliant, got the talent, the chops and Lorne [Michaels] loves him.”

Singer Chris Brown has taken to Twitter to defend artwork outside his Hollywood Hills home that neighbors and the city of Los Angeles want him to take down.

Neighbors claim the monsters are scaring neighborhood kids and ruining the hillside aesthetic, The Los Angeles Times reports.

L.A. city code officials cited Brown for unpermitted and excessive signage and ordered him to remove the art.

Brown on Saturday defended the artwork: "There are scarier creatures on Harry Potter," he tweeted. "Get a ... life!"
