Late Night with Seth Meyers - Season 5

Since Seth Meyers debuted as the host of Late Night on Feb. 24 of last year, the traditional host monologue has been a staple of his broadcast. No more. On Monday, Meyers jettisoned the opening segment in favor of one familiar to fans of his work on Weekend Update at Saturday Night Live.

Seated behind his desk, Meyers began the show by telling topical jokes about Donald Trump, Barack Obama and Kim Kardashian. He made no mention of the format change, and it’s unclear if it will be a permanent move.

Meyers has often received mixed reviews for his monologues, and many critics have called for this kind of switch for months.

Watch the opening segment below.
