Seth Meyers may have just been named the new host of Late Night, but he's already got his pick for the first guest on his couch.
"Amy Poehler," Meyers told TVGuide.com at the NBC upfront red carpet Monday. "If that can't happen then we'll have real trouble getting guests!"
Seth Meyers to replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night
Bill Hader is leaving Saturday Night Live, he told The New York Times.
"It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point," Hader said.
Seth Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night when Fallon takes over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno in 2014, NBC announced Sunday.
As NBC plans next year's Tonight Show handoff from Jay Leno to Jimmy Fallon, the network is taking a hard look at all of its late night options. That includes a potentially extreme makeover of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon once Fallon departs. The network has also given serious consideration to expanding The Tonight Show back to 90 minutes under Fallon, insiders confirm. Such an expansion might have led to a much smaller, 30 minute Late Night. But sources say the 90-minute Tonight Show idea has now been tabled.
Better luck next time, Alec Baldwin!
NBC has renewed Last Call with Carson Daly for a 13th season, just a day after The New York Times reported that the 30 Rock star was in talks with to host a late-night show that would air during Last Call's timeslot.

Julie Scardina, Jay Leno
NBC announced on April 3 that Jay Leno will once again hand over the reins of NBC's Tonight Show — which he began hosting in 1992 — this time to Late Night's Jimmy Fallon. Leno says that after he signs off in February 2014, you'll find him in his garage. But it's more likely the car enthusiast will be back in front of a camera than under the hood of a classic Chevy.
One industry insider who knows Leno says two cable networks have already approached the comic about launching a new show after he leaves NBC. By that time, Leno will be 64 — considered over the hill for the 18- to 49-year-old viewers advertisers seek in late night. But in the wider TV landscape, where octogenarians such as Barbara Walters and Regis Philbin still hold jobs, he's practically a youngster.

To show him how altruistic she is, she volunteers to treat the inmates at a women's prison, but when she gives one woman candy and a pashmina, it incites a riot, during which Mindy loses a giant chunk of her hair.
13. Most Heartbreaking Finale: We know we're supposed to root for Raylan on Justified, but it's Boyd and Ava's unhappy ending that hits home on the season finale.
