Just when you thought 2014 couldn't be going any better for former 'SNL' head writer, star, and current 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers, the former "Weekend Update" host will really have a weekend to handle. NBC has announced that Seth Meyers will make his Emmy hosting debut as the 2014 host of the 66th annual Emmy Awards, picking up from previous host Neil Patrick Harris!
What happens in a late-night show studio after the host goes home? Oh, probably nothing! Probably everyone else just goes home to rest up for the next day's show, or maybe there's some floor cleaning, or a staff member goes through the seats to see if any audiences members misplaced something during taping. Well, not at 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'
In his relatively short run as 'Late Night' host, Seth Meyers has already interviewed Kanye West (remember that whole rant about "sonic paintings"?), so it comes as little surprise that he also landed West's prolific paramour, Kim Kardashian, for her very own interview. The two are currently celebrating the release of their somewhat controversial 'Vogue' cover, so what better way to keep that going then by hitting a reality talk show to chat about it?
The world is a dangerous place, and if warning labels can help even the most basic and obvious of injuries and maladies from occurring, that's a fine thing. (Yes, you can choke on this small object. No, don't put this plastic bag over your head.) But what about products that don't currently come with a warning label and still need them? 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers has a few labels he'd like to see put into circulation, and he shared the first round of them on last night's show.
Just as Jimmy Fallon finally stepped up to 'The Tonight Show' last week with a star-studded parade of gags, fellow 'SNL' vet Seth Meyers finally made his own way up the ranks with last night's premiere of 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.' The new debut brought not only a spot-on parody of Fallon's "Thank You" sketch, but also some extended animosity between Meyers' first guest Amy Poehler and 8G band leader Fred Armisen.
A few days ago 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' delighted future audiences with news that Seth Meyers' former 'SNL' co-star Fred Armisen had signed on to lead the house band, and now it seems the new 'Late Night' has another beloved 'SNL' staple headed its way. Not only can we expect Bill Hader's revered "Stefon" to make appearances, but the first week's rounds of guests include everyone from Amy Poehler to Kanye West, Lena Dunham, Ian McKellen and more!
