NBC Sunday announced that Seth Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon who is moving up to the "Tonight Show" in 2014. It's a great choice. Meyers is a huge talent. NBC is going to be much better off once Jay Leno is gone. Here's the release: NBC names the versatile Emmy-winning writer/performer Seth Meyers as the new host of "Late Night" when Jimmy Fallon moves to "The Tonight Show" in 2014.  Lorne Michaels will executive produce “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and Michael Shoemaker will remain with the franchise as producer.  “Late Night with Seth Meyers” will originate from 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.

It's time for the Emmy Awards again, and I am excited and angry. More angry than excited, so let's take a bite out of that apple first. I'm angry because the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards telecast airs almost a month earlier than usual - and on a Monday. It hasn't aired on a weeknight since 1976. The show achieved its highest rating since 2005 last year, but given the shift, the only question this year is how small the audience will be. And that's especially unfortunate, because the level of TV talent up for awards this year has never been higher in the three decades I have been covering the beat.

The conventional wisdom says everything on network TV is in decline. Network news is a dinosaur crawling to the boneyard. The networks don't have one drama that can start to compete with cable or Netflix. And I dare you to name six sitcoms that you would admit watching. But then there's late night as it's been reinvigorated on NBC this year, with Jimmy Fallon replacing Jay Leno and “Saturday Night Live's” Seth Meyers taking over the 12:35 a.m. slot. Both are in first place in the ratings, and the last thing either can be accused of is getting there by dumbing it down.

"Saturday Night Live" tapped into excitement over the Super Bowl and the amusement over Ray Lewis' exuberance during the Weekend Update segment. Kenan Thompson appeared in jersey and face paint as Lewis, whom host Seth Meyers interviewed. The highlight came with Thompson's promise that, upon winning the Super Bowl, he would kneel down on the 50-yeard line and ASCEND INTO HEAVEN. Thompson: Whooh! Oh, Seth. Meyers: So, Ray, are you excited for the big game? Thompson: Aaah.

Hofstra (6-7) at Towson State (9-5)Site: Towson CenterTime: 7:30Radio: WTMD (89.7 FM)Outlook: Senior Ralph Blalock's 27 points and seven rebounds led Towson State past Hartford on Saturday, 88-73. It was the Tigers' fourth win in a row and improved their NAC record to 5-1. Blalock leads Towson at 19.0 ppg. Junior G Michael Keyes has become more of an offensive presence of late. He had a season-high 17 points against Hartford, and the Tigers shot 52 percent from the field. The teams haven't met since 1992, when Towson prevailed, 69-61, in the East Coast Conference championship game.

Idon't often write about second showings of made-for-TV movies, but Lifetime is airing Prayers for Bobby, which premiered Saturday, again tonight, and it is worth going out of your way to see. From a sure-to-win-an-Emmy performance by Sigourney Weaver, to a screenplay that explores gay identity as sensitively as it has been done on cable TV, this docudrama deserves a network-size audience. The Bobby is Bobby Griffith, who attended high school in California in the 1970s. The film is set in 1979 as he comes to terms with being gay. Ryan Kelley is not a great actor, but he shares most scenes with Weaver, and she elevates everyone's game.

Who would have thought a month ago that a half-hour version of Saturday Night Live would be a red-hot TV ticket on Thursday, one the biggest nights for regular series? But that's the case with SNL's Thursday edition, which finished in fifth place among all shows with the key demographic of young adult viewers 18 to 49 last week. And there is another special edition tonight focusing on the presidential election with "Weekend Update" anchors Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers. Poehler is the nearest thing to Tina Fey in comedy these days - and that is saying a lot about her talent.

If you're a fan of awards shows, drinking isn't required to get through the three-hour self-celebration that is the Emmy Awards. But it sure makes it more fun. And if you're either not a big awards show person (or perhaps forced to watch for some reason), we want to help you out a bit. Here's our official drinking game for Monday's ceremony (8 p.m., NBC). And if you need to, feel free to blame us for taking a personal day on Tuesday. TAKE A DRINK IF • Host Seth Meyers makes an ill-advised joke referencing "Orange is the New Black" and race relations.

Let's hope your New Year's Eve is better than the movie titled "New Year's Eve. " This hectic ensemble comedy has so many interwoven story lines and exudes so much synthetic good cheer that it leaves you feeling exhausted long before midnight strikes. Having put audiences through a similar exercise in "Valentine's Day" in 2010, director Garry Marshall now exploits another holiday. Both pictures boast such large all-star casts that you should be issued a score card upon entering the theater.
