Seth Meyers to go WU Alone

Seth Meyers has himself confirmed that he will man the WU desk alone for Season 35. Addressing the rumours that Kristen Wiig would join him as co-anchor, he said that she was "almost too valuable," saying that were she to become WU anchor she would be unable to perform her hilarious characters at WU.
He would not say much about the premature departures of Casey Wilson & Michaela Watkins saying only, "I think that the two who are leaving are going to be incredibly successful wherever they go."
On Jenny Slate & Nasim Pedrad's hirings he was very positive describing them both as "great writers as well as performers." He said turnover at 30 Rockefeller Plaza helps keep the humour fresh."It's always nice to have new people," he said. "They'll give new looks at things and see things in new ways. Any time you get new voices in, that tends to help."

And there you have it, folks!
