David Letterman Endearingly F*cks With New 'Late Night' Host Seth Meyers

By Joanna Robinson | Videos | October 8, 2013 | Comments ()


As Seth Meyers winds up his time on SNL and prepares to take over for Jimmy Fallon on Late Night, we’re all wondering if he’s up for the job. Sure he’s smooth as peanut butter on Weekend Update, but does he have the requisite level of charisma to carry his own show? We have until February 24th to decide. I’m a huge fan of Meyers and I’m rooting for him. And, despite the serious amount of genial sh*t David Letterman gives Seth here, I’m pretty sure he’s on Team Meyers too.

    It has been my experience that Seth is good for a laugh here and there, but it seems like 'overly condescending sarcasm' is his only shtick, and it doesn't take long for it to get annoying.

    I don't particularly know why...but I have a feeling this isn't going to go well.

    Yeah, sure, I probably would buy a used car from Seth Meyers, and - yeah, okay - I'd probably be thinking, 'Oh, what a nice refreshing change from all those snake-oiled con merchants that I usually encounter in the business.' And yes, fine, I might've even shook his hand warmly, and genuinely thanked him when we made the deal.
    All's I'm saying is that when I got the car home, I still wouldn't be surprised if there was a disfigured human corpse in the trunk with clown make-up all over its face.

    Eh, it wouldn't be the first time a Weekend Update anchor got mixed up in that sort of thing:


  • I don't know what to do with Meyers. I feel like I'm constantly being coerced into liking him.

    I'm sure he's a nice guy one-on-one, but something about his delivery feels so cold and distant to me. He comes across like someone who believes he's the smartest guy in the room. For a comedian, he seems to take himself awfully seriously.

    I heard he's from New Hampshire. Maybe that has something to do with it? A different sense of humor than what I'm used to.

    I'm from New Hampshire and I think you're right.
