Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon Shape Late Night Plans

Christie has appeared on Fallon's show both as a guest and in comedy skits, including a "Slow Jam the News" segment.

He also expects to have "characters" visit the desk, as they do on "Weekend Update" with "Stefon" and "Drunk Uncle." In other words, his program will look a lot more like his "S.N.L." segment than it does Fallon's version of "Late Night." Meyers addressed the legacy question: "The legacy of late night is you get to do weird things, people are more patient with it, he said, adding that "If you get hung up on the legacy of what you're taking over, it's tough to do the work." Elsewhere, NBC announced that it would be doing a live version of "Peter Pan" this December, following the Farrah Abraham tape success of last year's "Sound of Music Live!"
