Tonight, Seth Meyers will take his Turn as host of NBC's "Late Night." The SNL alum spoke with Today's Savanah Guthrie about his hopes and expectations for his new venture. Check out the interview below

"I think I'll go into white-hot panic", joked Meyers. "We'll probably have security guards behind me to make sure I can't make tracks quickly out the other direction."

Asked about what his style will be as host, he replies, "I don't know. I mean, I think that's one of those things that you don't quite overthink - your own persona. Like, you just make the decisions you would make based on your own taste, and that probably leads to the kind of show it'll be."

"Late Night With Seth Meyers" kicks off tonight, Monday February 24th at 12:35 a.m., with guests Amy Poehler, Vice President Joe Biden and musical guest A Great Big World.


Beloved "Saturday Night Live" personality - and the longest serving "anchor" on the show's wildly popular "Weekend Update" - Seth Meyers takes over as host of NBC's "Late Night," home to A-list celebrity guests, memorable comedy and the best in musical talent.

As the Emmy-winning head writer for SNL, Seth has established a reputation for his sharp wit and perfectly timed comedy and has gained fame for his spot-on impersonations, unique characters and hilarious spoofing of topical news. Seth takes his departure from SNL to his new post at "Late Night" as Jimmy Fallon moves to "The Tonight Show."

From Emmy-winning executive producer Lorne Michaels ("Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "Saturday Night Live") comes the next generation of Late Night jabs, laughs and unforgettable moments on "Late Night with Seth Meyers." One-hour daily show.
