Seth Meyers is graduating to late night talk show host after a successful run on "Saturday Night Live," and it seems he'll be taking his "Weekend Update" persona with him. The comedian covers Time Magazine's first issue of 2014 and opens up about the direction in which he wants "Late Night with Seth Meyers" to head.
Based on what Meyers describes, it sounds like "Late Night" could end up looking a lot like the network version of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." As Time's James Poniewozik writes, "Don't expect Meyers to sing [on 'Late Night']. Like a groom planning a wedding, he doesn't yet even know if he'll have a DJ or a band. His interests are politics, sports, current events. ... He's a cerebral and incisive stand-up who can cut sharp with a nice guy's smile."
