'SNL' reunion on Seth Meyers' 'Late Night'

For everyone who's missed seeing Fred Armisen on late night TV, Seth Meyers is about to be your savior.

The "SNL" alum is bringing his former co-worker along to "Late Night" when he begins hosting the show on February 24.

Meyers announced on Monday that Armisen is going to curate and lead the live band, even when he's off working on IFC's "Portlandia."

As New York Magazine's Vulture and MTV have pointed out, a lot of Armisen's comedy has musical roots, like the Blue Jean Committee and The Bjelland Brothers.

As he prepares to take over "Late Night" from Jimmy Fallon, Meyers is surrounding himself with plenty of old friends. His first guest on "Late Night" will be another "SNL" graduate, Amy Poehler.

When we start talking overall viewers, Leno pulled in the highest number he's had since 1998 with 14.6 million watching.
