NBC has begun plugging its two new late night hosts, Seth Meyers, who will take over for Jimmy Fallon on "Late Night," and Fallon, who is replacing veteran host Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show." In promos released over the weekend, the network attempts to tug at America's heartstrings with an homage to the previous "Tonight Show" hosts, including Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson, Conan O’Brien (albeit shortlived) and Leno.

Taking a lighter approach with the promo for Meyers, who will be coming fresh off of "Saturday Night Live's" Weekend Update desk, the new host gives audiences a sneak peek at his new studio -- only to find that it's still under construction:

"The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" debuts Feb. 17, while "Late Night With Seth Meyers" premieres Feb. 24.
