Jimmy Fallon is rumored to be taking over for Jay Leno when he retires at the end of the 2013-2014 season. Nobody was sure who would be replacing Fallon until the Seth Myers rumors began.

Monday night the New York Times' Bill Carter asked Myers if he would want to take the job. Myers gave a vague response saying, "Nobody could do that job as well as Jimmy Fallon."

Seth Myers is a writer on "Saturday Night Live" and hosts "Weekend Update" a newscast on "SNL" which pokes fun at what is making headlines around the world.

The New York Post cites an unnamed source as saying, "Loren Michaels wants Seth to take over from Fallon. It would be perfect for him. Tina Fey's name has also come up, but she has said she was too busy to do it."

Loren Michaels produces both "SNL" and "Late Night." Myers is being considered as the perfect replacement for Fallon because they both have similar backgrounds.

Fallon was the host of "Weekend Update" on "SNL," Myers took over when Fallon left the show.

Twitter was buzzing about the rumor Seth Myers will take over for Jimmy Fallon.

Brandon Moore simply tweeted, "I love this idea!"

Eddie Fu writes, "Seth Myers is a great choice to host 'Late Night' I'm all in."

"A conventional choice, but could work," says Bart Smith.

Below is a video of Seth Myers doing a special "Weekend Update" for Betty White's Birthday.
