So far, so good for Seth Meyers in his new time slot

It’s hard to dislike Seth Meyers, and it’s even harder to dislike the job he’s doing so far on Late Night.

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.
