Bill Hader is finally making himself a known entity in Hollywood, but for years he ruled the Saturday Night Live stage in New York. The former Not Ready For Primetime player popped up on Seth Meyers’ Late Night this week, and it wouldn’t be a true SNL reunion without a little Stefon talk. You can hear more about the origins of the character, as well as some funny behind-the-scenes stories, below.
Well this is nice. Filled equally with humor and earnestness, several members of the Saturday Night Live family bid their last farewell to Weekend Updater and longtime cast member Seth Meyers in a new video in advance of his December 24th premiere on Late Night. Featuring many of the show’s cast members — new and old alike — it showcases the impact Meyers had during his time as the late night sketch show’s head writer.
We still have a couple of weeks to wait for the next new episode of Saturday Night Live. The Olympics has put NBC into rerun territory for the most part, but the late night sketch comedy series will be back soon enough, and when it does, Jim Parsons will host an episode. The Big Bang Theory star has been lined up to host the March 1. While this is Parson's first time hosting, it isn't the first time for the episode's musical guest. Beck will be returning for his seventh appearance as musical guest in the series.
Amy Poehler, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart And Joe Biden Among Late Night With Seth Meyers' First Guests
Amy Poehler, Joe Biden, Kanye West, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Lena Dunahm! These are some of the people who will be among the first guests to grace Late Night with Seth Meyers, which is set to debut later this month. And among the musical performers, there's Brad Paisley and John Mayer Trio.
With Jimmy Fallon’s debut on The Tonight Show mere weeks away, it’s no surprise that NBC has begun unveiling a series of promos in anticipation of the big switch from late late night to regular late night. And true to the jovial funny man’s form, they're all pretty charming — heck, one of them is even downright adorable. Not that we'd expect anything less.
Seth Meyers has an inquiry about a desk in the new promo for his move from Saturday Night Live to his new nightly home on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Turns out that with a little over a month to go, there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done — including finding a place for Meyers to sit at night in and night out. At least, that’s what the 36-second video purports.
We’ve known for quite some time that Seth Meyers is transitioning from SNL into late night talk with a brand new program at NBC. That program will roll with the apt name Late Night With Seth Meyers, and now we’ve gotten the first promotional image from the talk series.
A little over a month after NBC announced late night host Jimmy Fallon will take over for The Tonight Show in 2014, the network has found Fallon’s official replacement. On Sunday, NBC announced the network has signed on veteran SNL writer and player Seth Meyers to run the 12:35 a.m. program on NBC.
