Meyers monologues are worse than hearing finger nails screeching across a chalk board
Why are some late night television shows allowed to maintain air time for so long compared to other decent television series which get shelved prematurely? What I will say however is that no one that I know really cares (less) about Late Night with Seth Meyers. I propose that if Seth Meyers wants to stay on the air that he moves over to even a later time slot and maybe over to a public broadcasting station. Then when there is a public funding drive the producers would see by the low (or NO) financial contributions that Seth Meyers should be taken off the air permanently.
When Meyers took over for Jimmy Fallon who got promoted to the prime time slot with the Tonight Show (when Jay Leno was asked to retire) there was a bit of fan fare that both Fallon and Meyers were being provided with a unique opportunity to show how well they could initially build and then sustain their own fan bases.
I must say that I really do enjoy Jimmy Fallon and his style of physical comedy as well as his personal interactions with his guests. As for Seth Meyers? What does he do but continually (write?) spew pitiful monologues and then he habitually takes a very long, long pause until people have no choice but to applaud before he proceeds with the next lame joke in his nightly boring monologue. As for the number of people who have rated the Late Night with Seth Meyers show, it has been on the air for almost a year and there have only been 645 people who have even taken the time to provide an IMDb rating. So for the rest of you people who are gainfully employed by Late Night with Seth Meyers I would suggest that in an effort to secure your employment you may want to improve the existing 6.1 rating before the plug is pulled. If the number of IMDb users who actually took the time to rate Late Night with Seth Meyers is an indication of the waning interest in the show then lets get the numbers straight. There have been a total of (two) 2 people who have even taken the initiative to write a review with my own review being the second one since the show went on the air.
I rest my case, and I only wish the producers would take the hint and can this boring show for good so some real talent is provided an opportunity to shine and entertain their audience which is what a late night talk show is intended to do.
