[Meyers' late night will be more topical than Fallon's]
Seth Meyers’ new office at 30 rockefeller Plaza is a blank. Bare walls, a few boxes, a fresh legal pad on the otherwise empty desktop. There’s one lonely picture tacked on his desk, of Meyers with the Count from Sesame Street.
You’ll have to excuse the future Late Night host for not decorating: he still has another NBC office upstairs, at Saturday Night Live, where he’s been since 2001. (Meyers’ last SNL episode won’t be before the beginning of February, he guesses.) So he commutes, by elevator. This December morning, he’s going to take comedy pitches from his still incomplete Late Night writing staff.
