Seth Meyers on Taking Over ‘Late Night’ vs. Taking Over ‘Weekend Update’


“[David Letterman’s suggested title is] a great title, The Tomorrow Show, but I would never … it would seem so pretentious to change the name of a legacy show. But, yeah, I feel a great deal of pressure. When you do something like Weekend Update you think, ‘Oh, my god, so few people have done this job.’ But it’s still four or five times as many who have done this job. You don’t want to be the guy who screws it up. I’m such a fan of the three people who have done it before me.”

- Seth Meyers in an interview with The LA Times about David Letterman’s suggestion to call Late Night “The Tomorrow Show” and not wanting to screw up the show’s legacy.
