CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Seth Myers is an comedian, actor, screenwriter, producer, and the new host of “Late Night."
Myers joined Saturday Night Live in 2001 and continued as a cast member until last year. Myers was the former head writer for SNL and also hosted “Weekend Update”.
Myers started his “Late Night with Seth Myers” hosting duties on Monday. Reviews have been very good.
The first episode averaged 3.4 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49. In the key demo, that's the best Monday Late Night in almost a decade -- since January 2005.
That outpaces Jimmy Fallon's 2009 Late Night debut by more than 500,000 viewers and a tenth of a point in the targeted demographic.
This morning on Larry’s Look, Larry sat down with Seth to talk about his time with SNL and how much he enjoys the challenge of his new project. He even offered Larry a job on “Late Night”!
