The comedian has signed a new 4-year deal with NBC.
February 26, 2021
NBC announced today that Seth Meyers has signed on to host Late Night with Seth Meyers for another four seasons, taking it to at least 2025. The deal follows up the previous five-year pact for Meyers and the show, which is in its fourth iteration after previously being hosted by David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy Fallon.
Meyers, who used to be the head writer for Saturday Night Live, has done an admirable job of making Late Night his own. His 'A Closer Look' segments have become notably popular in recent years, also finding a sizeable audience on the show's YouTube channel.
Today's deal will bring Late Night with Seth Meyers up to a total of 11 years on the air. Depending on exactly how long it stays on the air, the show could surpass the length of Letterman's 11-year run, though it still has a way to go before it catches up to O'Brien, whose time on Late Night spanned 16 years.

What a waste of a time slot.

Why? is there a high demand for political comedy because last time I checked the ratings there is not.

I love this show and am happy it got renewed.

Jay Leno’s Garage is far more entertaining and funny than any of the talk shows have been for many years. Rather they all suck big time so there is no comparison to make anyway. Garage is quite good and not throw away trash TV.

He's ok but I don't have the time to watch all the late night shows and Colbert is the one I watch. The Daily Show and Conan once in a while.
@G, did you really say "funny and entertaining" in the same sentence as Jay Leno? He isn't funny.

He's a Communist synthesizer.

G, I couldn't agree more!!!

This is by FAR the worst of late-night talk shows. Seth is one of the rare disappointments from a usually great SNL cast. He is not funny or even a little good at interviewing. WHY?

Haven't watched in over 4 years. Became a left wing liberal editorial. Miss the years when late night was funny and entertaining. Remember Jay Leno?
