Seth Meyers will take his late-night act to prime time as the next host of the Emmy Awards. NBC, home to Meyers in his long stint on Saturday Night Live and his new late-night talk show, announced last night that he'll host the 66th edition of the Emmys set to air on the network Aug. 25. It will be telecast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The 40-year-old Meyers, himself an Emmy winner, debuted as host of Late Night With Seth Meyers in February, taking over the slot of Jimmy Fallon, who moved on to the Tonight Show.
