A key player in the broadcast networks’ late-night wars is locked in for the next five years, with NBC renewing “Late Night with Seth Meyers” until February 2021, EW.com reports.

NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt announced the extension at the Television Critics Association press tour.

“Meyers — the former ‘SNL’ head writer and ‘Weekend Update’ co-anchor — took over the 12:30 a.m. job in February 2014 from Jimmy Fallon, who was promoted to ‘The Tonight Show.’ ‘Late Night’ is earning a .51 in the 18-49 demo this quarter, versus a .34 for CBS’s ‘Late Late Show’ (and a .38 for ABC’s ‘Nightline’ in the half-hour in which the shows go head-to-head),” EW notes.
