Late Night With Seth Meyers

Recommended Posts

I skip Tiny Voice due to personal Trump overload but enjoy the fake news conference bits despite them being political and the same type of silliness. Go figure.

My favorite recurring segment these days is "whenever Amber is on." I'm also happy to see Ya Burnt, Seth goes on a tirade, Jokes Seth Can't Tell, and Popsicle Schtick. Any remote segments out of the studio like Seth going day drinking are rare treats.

I wish he'd do more personal storytelling at the start of the show like Letterman used to. Alexi can't have a baby in the lobby every week, but I'm sure he could come up with some anecdotes. He's good at it.

On the one hand, I'm sorry it was painful/difficult for him to talk. On the other hand, I found his Seth-with-a-cold voice very sexy. *conflicted*

I have responses to that, but due to me being a straight white male would be difficult for me to say :)

”Jokes Opus Can't Tell”? We need Amber over here. :-)

I'm a little behind, but I thought the interviews with Lenny Kravitz and Anthony Atamanuik the other night were great. Usually I think Seth is, at best, a mediocre interviewer. But both of those were really fun. And I really had no interest in Kravitz or Atamanuik ahead of time, so it was a pleasant surprise.

Political commentary from either Late Night with Seth Meyers or any related PTV editorial piece is fine to be discussed in this forum.

However, posts that contain personal political views will be subject to moderation.

This directive is purposely broad because anytime hard lines are drawn in the sand and/or examples are given, some will use it as an opportunity to walk too close to the line, or even put a toe over it.

Please remember, mods are only human, and sometimes stuff will slip through the net. So if you see a post that violates the above, please do not respond - use the report button.

If you have a question on any of this, please PM your moderator @frenchtoast

Thanks.

Amber has pilot presentation at NBC:

"Ruffin will star in, write and executive produce the single-camera comedy. She plays the fluff piece-loving editor of the Benson Village Gazette, covering her idyllic hometown. But when the newspaper owners hire a reporter who’s looking to uncover a juicy story in Benson, he threatens to unravel the happy denial Amber has been living in."

She had been writing for Detroiters while still on staff at Late Night, but if this series is picked up, that's ultimately the end of her here. Which we could all see coming, with her high profile Late Night segments getting more widespread attention. I of course wish her the best in life and career, but I'll miss her a lot if she goes.

White Savior with Amber and Seth was AWESOME. 

Such a tiresome formula to make white people feel good,  while limiting roles and dignity of people of color.  

Loved Amber in the period hair and clothes. 

Genius. 

Seth is so likable. 

 His interview with Glenda Jackson was sweet and thorny. ...like her. 

John Oliver is always wonderful and I loved the short and perfect audience interaction, as did Seth.

So I'm watching the show here last night in Phoenix (Mountain time zone) and Christina Hendricks is the guest.  Seth brings it up that Hendricks had a little trouble earlier in the day on another show.  She says 'yes', that during an appearance on "Live with Kelly Lee and Regis" (or whatever they are calling it these days) ABC News broke into programming with a special report on the Michael Cohen hearings right in the middle of her segment.

Seth rolls tape, and sure enough, the ABC News "Special Report" bumper rolls just as Hendricks is about to promote her show "Bad Girls".  Everyone seems to get a kick out of that and Seth's interview moves on.  Just as she's about to talk about her show, *BANG* up pops the NBC News "Special Report" graphic.  OK, that's pretty funny. Nice job Seth.

Turns out it was NBC News breaking into programming to cover Trump's news conference live after the failed North Korean arms talks.

Nice.

And tonight Seth showed the clip again of talking about what happened on the morning show, and then showed her being interrupted again on his show.

I have been laughing OUT LOUD at A Closer Look lately, which looks weird because I'm at work watching on my phone.

"President Nnnanananananana," "A gossipy alligator."  Good stuff, Seth.

Last nights show with “John McCains daughter” is mentioned on The View forum in appreciation of the smackdown/schooling Seth gave to her.  Loved it and hope it shows up on YouTube.  Thanks Seth ❣️

Oh, I was sure it'd be a frustrating watch and hid it from my list.

Thanks for posting this segment of the show sum.  I am not tech savvy enough to know how, but I am going to post that it is here on The View forum.  Hope my post there doesn’t get deleted, they are very strict over there 😬

It's posted in Meghan's thread over there along with the discussion about her behavior and her husband's response to it all this morning.

Lena Dunham,  you are a very talented and funny lady.  But Please get a hairstyle that you don’t have to be touching almost constantly.  Your pushing your hair back was so distracting I could hardly pay attention to your comments.  Maybe a touch of hairspray?  I have to admit this is a pet peeve of mine.  So many talk show female guests do this but not to this extent.  Nerves maybe?

I watched the episode from (I think) last night because I love Seth and Amy Poehler together, but I was really moved by Dr. Ruth and her discussion about the documentary on her and about the climate of hatred and about the Holocaust. I always forget how sharp and funny she is.

I found Seth’s interview with Democratic nominee Michael Bennett very entertaining. Seth really allows his guests to show their humor and vulnerability. Bennett seemed charming and witty and seemed more comfortable than in other interviews.

"Back in My Day" was the best--"Back in my day, shut up." "Back in my day, YOU shut up."

Hilarious! It's easy to see where Seth got his comedy chops.

I loved his jokes about Billy Joel from a couple of weeks ago - 

"Today is Billy Joel's 70th birthday. His party will be at 9 o'clock on a Saturday."

"That's right, today is Billy Joel's 70th birthday, which means he's finally old enough to be MOVIN' OUT!!!"

😂
