@LateNight Seth hasn’t tweeted once yet. latenightseth.tumblr.com has been reserved, but bears no posts. Yet there is evidence online that Seth Meyers will, in fact, take over Late Night this February – thanks to a brand-new YouTube account, which recently posted its very first video: a bouncy promo for Meyers’ new show.
Turns out those empty social media accounts are thematically appropriate: The gist of Meyers’ first promo is that his show really isn’t ready for air. (That seems about right; Meyers said in the most recent issue of Time that he still doesn’t know if he’s going to feature a band or a DJ.) The clip shows Meyers leaving the set of SNL, then offering to take viewers on a tour of his new digs, which happen to be just “30 feet” away from his old studio. Once he arrives, though, Meyers finds a room filled with equipment – nowhere near in shape for a late night broadcast. It’s funny ‘cause it’s true!
Late Night with Seth Meyers debuts Feb. 24, right after The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
