(NBC News)  "Late Night" returns to NBC tonight with new host Seth Meyers at the helm.

The move comes after more than ten years on "Saturday Night Live".

"It had all of the elements that I love about SNL, exist in late night which is you have to generate a lot of material, you get to have a really fun writing staff, and you get to be fluid because of how often you have to do it.  So it seemed like a good fit, post SNL,"  Meyers says.
