Late Night with Seth Meyers - Show Summary

Late Night with Seth Meyers is an hour-long talk show hosted by comedian and former Saturday Night Live head writer and Weekend Update host Seth Meyers. Meyers was on the SNL TV show for over 13 years and occasionally reprises the role as a guest appearance on SNL.

Seth Meyers has been hosting Late Night with Seth Myers since February 2014 when Jimmy Fallon replaced the legendary Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. Meyers follows the traditional Late Night format with an opening monologue, light hearted banter, celebrity interviews and occasional sketches.

He is joined each night by the 8G Band (named for the studio where the show is taped) led by friend and former SNL alum, Fred Armisen. Meyers also performs a monologue rehearsal each afternoon.

An intimate studio audience helps Seth to determine which jokes he will use in the show that evening.

Seth Meyers Headshot
  NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers show has two types of experiences, the first is the monologue rehearsal show which is a fun, relaxed show that lasts about an hour where Seth tries out the funniest jokes of the day and decides on what jokes go into the final show based on the audience reaction at this show. The second show is the live show which is shot a little later and is a bit more buttoned up, but has skits and New York and Hollywood celebrity guests appear. Late Night with Seth Meyers has to compete with many other late night shows for celebrities, so this show can suffer from a lack of A-List stars, but the show bookers do a great job in getting much more interesting celebrities to make up for the apparent lack of guest stardom.
NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers practices 40% overbooking policy so many people with reservations to the live show may not get in, so they may just have to be happy with the monologue rehearsal. This makes using the standby line for the main show very unpredictable for getting to see the full show.
Meyers addresses the audience before the taping begins to warm them up, and makes them laugh with his own particular brand of humor in between segments.

Monologue Rehearsal Show 4PM:
The jokes for Meyers’ monologue are written by a team of 12 writers that create new jokes daily, beginning at 9:30am and working until around 3:30pm. Seth picks his favorite jokes and then rehearses them in front of a live audience to determine which ones will be included in the taping at 6:30pm.

Only the jokes with the loudest laughs are chosen, and a couple of sketches are also rehearsed. . A Q&A with the writer is also allowed briefly before entering the studio.

  Final Show 6:30PM:
The final show of Late Night with Seth Meyers is taped at 6:30pm Monday – Thursday in Studio 8G at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, ironically just across the hall from studio 8H where SNL is taped. The Friday shows are reruns.

Late Night consists of a monologue that opens the show, “panel segments with fictional characters”, and celebrity interviews that have included 50 Cent, Mark Wahlberg and former SNL vets Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. There are only 2 musical performances each week.

  Ticket Details:
Tickets for the show can be reserved online, and are the best way to ensure that you get into the show. If you have not done this, you can receive a stand-by ticket for the day’s show on a line outside the NBC Experience store at 9AM, but this does not guarantee you a seat.

Although the show tapes at 6:30pm, you are requested to be present at 5PM Even if your seat is “guaranteed”, it’s best to show up at the requested time to ensure that you will receive seating since the show practices overbooking.

Late Night with Seth Meyers Dos and Don'ts Show Notes:
Be prepared to go through security checkpoints and metal detectors. No food and backpacks are allowed in the studio, so eat before you arrive. There is no bag check, so only bring a bag that you don’t mind carrying with you into the studio.

All cameras and electronic devices must be turned off completely before stepping into the studio, as no individual’s photography or filming is allowed. You will not get away with putting your phone on silent. If you are seen with your phone on during the show, you will be escorted out and do the walk of shame in front of everyone seated behind you.
Previous Hosts of Late Night   Passing of Late Night pickel
Previous Hosts of Late Night:
David Letterman, the creator of Late Night, was the first host of the show in February of 1982 and had a successful 11-year run until it was passed to Conan O'Brien. O'Brien had very little on-screen experience and this showed in the first 14 weeks of the show resulting in average reviews.

During the rest of his time as host, O'Brien turned it around and surpassed Letterman, hosting 16 years. Unlike O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon had much more experience in front of the camera before hosting. Fallon was a SNL regular cast member and was always featured in many memorable sketches. His version of Late Night included skits and impressions similar to what he performed on SNL. Fallon has been the host with the least years of hosting Late Night with only 5 years.
  Passing of the Late Night Pickle:
The Late Night pickle has been passed to each host of Late Night since Letterman's departure in 1993. Letterman's staff stated that they found the pickle in the studio when Late Night began.

Letterman passed the pickle to O'Brien who then passed it to Jimmy Fallon. At the end of his 5-year run, Fallon passed the pickle to Meyers in February 2014.
