See the Future of Staying Up Late Watching TV with Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers Promos

There's just over a month to go until Jay Leno, for the second time, retreats from the magenta glow of The Tonight Show, at last relieving print media of its final, longstanding burden of delivering Leno misprints to use as comedy. It also means Jimmy Fallon will be moving his geniality to 11:35, while Weekend Update's Seth Meyers will inherit the Late Night slot.

As such, NBC has just released a couple promos for Fallon's Tonight Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers. In Late Night's, Meyers strolls from SNL's studio to show us his new set; for The Tonight Show, the network went with more of a historical legacy approach that ends up being somewhat depressing for a couple reasons. You can decide for yourself whether it's sadder how Conan's well-earned tenure is utterly whitewashed or that, after a two-decade run, Leno's most memorable highlight is the time he pointed out a typo in a 7-day forecast.
