The new host of "Late Night With Seth Meyers" was named the host of the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

Meyers, 40, will host the 66th annual event at 8 p.m. EST on Aug. 25. This will be a big change from the singing and dancing Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted last year.

Meyers is no stranger to the Emmys, having won three awards himself for his work on "Saturday Night Live."

In addition to the new late-night gig at 12:30 taking over for Jimmy Fallon and the Emmys, Meyers also launched his show "The Awesomes" on Hulu in 2013.

NBC will air the Emmy Awards and its president voiced his complete confidence in the funnyman.

"Seth’s expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at SNL, as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera on SNL and Late Night, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys,” said Paul Telegdy, president, late night, NBC Entertainment, according to EW.
