I think late night talk show host Seth Meyers realizes that very few people will ever find him funny. His obsession with President Donald Trump leaves his show, which is supposed to include comedy of some kind, routinely unfunny to the point that he better thank his lucky stars that “applause” and “laughter” signs still accompany TV shows that are filmed in front of a studio audience.
Anyway, Meyers and the geniuses at NBC think it’s going to be a brilliant idea to extend the misery of watching “Late Night with Seth Meyers” an extra half hour on Thursday night so the talking puppet Meyers can dig deeper into special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which is scheduled to be released Thursday.
The move is being done so that “Saturday Night Live” cast member Leslie Jones can still have her “Game of Thrones” segment where she breaks down the latest episode of the HBO, which began its final season this past Sunday.
Jones is the occasionally funny woman who’s still upset over people crapping all over the “Ghostbusters” remake abomination that she was a part of in 2016.
“I simply will not stand for the Mueller report bumping Leslie Jones or vice versa, so we decided to make room for both,” Meyers said, according to The Hill.
Maybe Meyers is like a child in the sense that he hates Trump so much that he secretly loves him. I mean, Trump’s the only thing that gives Meyers any kind of ratings. I’d wager that if it weren't for the president, most of these late night shows wouldn’t survive.
