Late night should be fun - ranting about politics is a downer
I looked forward to Seth taking over Late Night after Jimmy left since Jimmy was super amazing and always entertained. But Seth rapidly turned into Rachel Maddow on a constant rant about politicians and political views that he deemed to be too stupid for words though he had plenty of words to make fun of them.
I stay up late and get up late and there is not much on late at night and I was looking forward to a good, entertaining program like Jimmy Fallon had. But Seth has been getting worse during the election season with his diatribes against anyone but Hillary Clinton. I have tried to overlook these segments but they have been getting more frequent and longer sometimes lasting for close to what seems like ten minutes.
I have had enough. I will not be spending my nights watching Seth Meyers but watching something that entertains me and wants me to watch their show not convert me to their political philosophy and candidate. I had such high hopes but someone wants to use Late Night to promote politics instead of help people have an enjoyable time during the hour that people spend with Late Night hoping for a nice end to an evening.
