Eccentric Seth Meyers won late night this week

Welcome back, late night viewers! Most late night shows are back from their holiday break with ski tans and itchy sweaters from their moms. The Daily Show will start in The era of the alternating host With Leslie Jones next week. And both Showing Amber Raven And Ziwi Closed loop orders in December. Ruffin b Christmas showand Ziwe (being rebellious as usual) did Juneteenth appear instead. joking!

Here’s something that’s bothering me in the early weeks of 2023: Too many shows are double-dipping guests. The talk show wars were bad — we don’t need to Helen Kuchenk prevent people from continuing Letterman Again – but maybe you don’t hit two shows in the same week? Allison WilliamsBella Ramsey, Tom Hanks, and Megan Fahey have each appeared on two talk shows. And Prince Harry was on every damn surface you could broadcast on. Aren’t all of these shows on hiatus? Shouldn’t there be loads of people waiting to deliver the shit on TV? Despite the double bookings, there are still nice moments around the world late at night. lets take alook.

Prince Harry was, as we say on this side of the pond, on one. for him additional The tour took him to ITV, 60 Minutes, Good Morning Americaand finally, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. We’ve heard about it Dick frostbite, we’ve heard about Camilla using the press (she’s really a Blair Waldorf mansion), and we’ve heard about beef with the bros. But what gave us Harry’s appearance was that these other appearances were not the remorseful Harry. He was having fun with the crowd, something his family members can’t really do. Get it on Team Harold. Has some improvement potential!

Leslie Jones will bring a very pleasant energy The Daily Show When you host a guest. Jones did a lot of “modernizing” office pieces during her work SNL in position, and always had great energy, but she often stumbled. Hope you are able to be off the cuff dissolved solids As if on The Tonight Show .this week. Jones somehow starts yelling at the audience that Santa Claus isn’t real. why? Unclear – She was promoting her podcast. But it was really fun to watch. Let Leslie Jones scream at the people!

The relationship between Brandi Glanville and Andy Cohen is long and complicated. Glanville is great TV, always saying the first thing on her mind and cursing the consequences. But that probably makes her a rather difficult friend. Cohen seemed to be angry with Glanville her entire life WWHL Appearance, though sometimes also pleased. And Michelle Buteau was hanging on for dear life. Glanville was givingThe girl you wish you hadn’t struck up a conversation with at a partyAnd Buteau matched that energy.

Jenny Zigrino brought a lot of vitality to The late show. It was a good match on the last show of the night. Lots of dating jokes, and lots of audience interaction. It was a festive atmosphere. My favorite joke on the set was her impression of a baby boomer hiding behind that “baby” moniker while the housing market crashes. How could a child do that?!

As we discussed earlier in this column, Late Night is a combination of reading hint cards and reviving. You must be good at both. But you can save the poor performance of the first with an excess of the second. Seth Meyers did exactly that on Monday’s “A Closer Look,” when he showed up at which monologue writer puts in the word “acquiescence” too many times. “God forbid to give in And find a synonym for the word “acceptance”! Oh no, Sal no cave! Getting out of the book is really important. Late night (at least semblance of) spontaneity. It’s the “sleep mod” hours, you know? Being able to freshen up really well is what separates actual late-night comedy, like Those you see on TV at the gas station.Note: There was also a very interesting take on the tenth doctor from doctor who (Did you hear he’s back?)
