On his first episode as the new host of Late Night (the only one I was able to see at press time), Seth Meyers stuck with what he’s good at, focusing on Weekend Update-style jokes (most of which were pretty solid) and bringing friend and former Saturday Night Live co-star Amy Poehler on as his first guest. There’s certainly room for improvement—the set looks flimsy and cheap, and bandleader Fred Armisen is criminally underused—but overall it’s a strong start for a new Late Night era.
