Wiki Bio Text
==Late Night with Seth Meyers== is an American late-night talk show hosted by [[Seth Meyers]] on [[NBC]]. The show premiered on February 24, 2014 and is produced by [[Broadway Video]] and [[Universal Television]]. It is the fourth incarnation of [[NBC]]'s long-running [[Late Night]] franchise. The show also stars bandleader [[Fred Armisen]] and the [[8-G Band]], the show's house band. [[Late Night]] is produced by former [[Saturday Night Live]] producer [[Mike Shoemaker]] and executive-produced by [[Lorne Michaels]]. The show records from [[Studio 8G]] at [[30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City]].
===The program airs=== Monday through Thursday nights at 12:37 a.m. ET/PT. The show opens with Meyers' topical monologue, which he delivers from his desk. The program also contains comedy bits, sketches, interviews with a myriad of guests, and a musical or comedy performance. "A Closer Look" is a signature segment, where Meyers discusses, in-depth, contemporary current events, which has given the show a politically-driven edge to it. The show attracts an average of 1.5 million viewers nightly.
===On January 13, 2016===, NBC renewed Meyers' contract to remain as host through 2021.
===History=== The series is the fourth incarnation of the [[Late Night]] franchise, originated by [[David Letterman]]. Meyers was appointed host when Jimmy Fallon was announced to become the next host of [[The Tonight Show]] (currently [[The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon]]), where he succeeded the previous host [[Jay Leno]] on February 17, 2014. Meyers' first guests were fellow SNL alum and Weekend Update co-anchor Amy Poehler, Vice President Joe Biden, and musical act A Great Big World. The show's house band, The 8G Band, features members of the indie bands Les Savy Fav and Girls Against Boys, and is typically led by SNL alum Fred Armisen. Every episode features a coffee mug on Meyers' desk from a different NBC affiliate.
====On September 2, 2014====, the show premiered a redesigned set.
===Production=== Late Night with Seth Meyers originates from NBC Studio 8-G in the Comcast Building at 30 Rockefeller Center in New York City. The studio is housed directly above Studio 6B, the home of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon; the combination created logistical challenges for executives, who were concerned about "sound bleed" (as the Comcast Building was built with steel girders, sound is too easily conducted floor to floor). As a result, The Tonight Show tapes at 5:00pm, and Late Night tapes later in the evening, at 6:30pm. The studio seats nearly 180 individuals, and is housed directly beside Studio 8H, longtime home of Saturday Night Live. Architectural Digest writes that the stage "strikes an Art Deco tone, with its illuminated proscenium arch reminiscent of the Chrysler Building’s iconic crown." Seth's Late Night has a house band, called The 8G Band, and led by Fred Armisen who also acts as the show's sidekick. He also performs as backing & co-lead vocals, rhythm guitars, bass and drums. The other personnel in the band are Seth Jabour on lead guitars and backing vocals, Marnie Stern on lead & rhythm guitars and backing vocals, Syd Butler on bass, and Eli Janney on keyboards, programmer and lead vocals. Just before Marnie Stern took over for Fred Armisen as guitarist in 2015, the role of drummer was held by Kimberly Thompson, who has performed trumpets, backing vocals and melodicas since the premiere of Late Night on February 24, 2014.
