Afternoon Links: Would You Like to See Seth Meyers’s Late Night Set?
Well, so would he. The joint’s not quite ready yet, but it does happen to be within spitting distance of SNL‘s Studio 8H. Once it’s all built and Seth’s new desk shows up and everything, Late Night will embark on a voyage fairly unlike the one chartered by Jimmy Fallon, according to Time. Sketches will see more prominence than music, and Meyers’s interest in politics will shape the show’s sensibility as well as its guest list. There may not be a house band, either, because, among other reasons, the Roots are impossible to follow.
