Dana Edelson/NBC(NEW YORK) — Seth Meyers said goodbye to NBC’s Saturday Night Live, his TV home for more than a decade, over the weekend. He was given a fond farewell by the show as he prepares to replace Jimmy Fallon as host of the network’s Late Night.
After Meyers told his final joke as a “Weekend Update” anchor, he was joined on the set by his former “Weekend Update” co-star, Amy Poehler, as well as recent cast members Bill Hader, Andy Samberg and Fred Armisen.
Hader reprised his popular character Stefon, whom Meyers memorably married in Hader’s final episode last year. Armisen resurrected his bumbling impression of former New York Gov. David Paterson.
