Saturday Night Live gained a new viewer for its first show back after the Olympics – Seth Meyers.

"I ended up staying up and watching all of SNL," the former head writer and host of Weekend Update told PEOPLE at Equinox during the annual Cycle for Survival event on Sunday morning.

"I loved it. It was really fun for me to have that excitement that a viewer has of not knowing what's coming up next. I felt a lot like a regular person, but a proud regular person."

Meyers, 40, has big shoes to fill with his new gig hosting Late Night, but says he isn't pondering the precedent his predecessors have set.
