Mark down Oct. 13 on your calendars because that's when you can expect Meyers's first ever hosting gig along with musical guest Paul Simon, who will make his 15th appearance on SNL. NBC also announced Awkwafina would host the week before Meyers on Oct. 6, and naturally Meyers only reaction so far to his own hosting announcement was to congratulate her. "Awkwafina is gonna kill it!!!!!" Meyers said, retweeting the news.
Even if Meyers isn't exactly celebrating, his fans definitely are! Following the news, Twitter pretty much exploded with excitement over Seth Meyers's return and suggestions for which sketches people want to see him reprise most!
