Seth Meyers Excited About Studio Return & In-Person Guests

The media outlet then discussed with Meyers having in-person guests and the difference between talking to someone face-to-face instead of having the interview on Zoom.

NBC’s “Late Night” host Seth Meyers recently spoke with Deadline about returning to the studios following months away and doing the program from home as the late-night hosts begin recording from their studio with in-person guests, some with a live audience. 

“The novelty hasn’t worn off; it’s so nice to be back in the studio, having done the show out of the studio that every day you are acutely aware of how much harder the job could be without being surrounded by this really talented staff. Tonight was only our third or fourth show where both guests were in the studio, and that’s great,” Meyers said. 

“Really, I still feel as though, and sadly the more you do it, the better you get at doing a Zoom interview; that was a lot harder a year ago, but nothing got easy about doing the tech myself and not having to worry about that and being able to focus on writing and performance, is such a gift.”

The media outlet then discussed with Meyers having in-person guests. Then asked the difference between talking to someone face-to-face instead of having the interview on Zoom. 

“The upside to Zoom is that the guest is talking to the audience, they’re looking into the camera, and the downside is you still can’t quite tell when you’re supposed to jump in. It’s really hard, so I think it’s even a bit better if the guest is telling a great story and it’s not about you as a host needing to be there to banter with them. So that’s a real positive to how Zoom works,” Meyers said. 

“But you’re always just on your toes trying to figure out what you should be doing, which a lot easier when you have a guest in studio. The people who show up are so happy to be there. David Harbour, who is always a delight to talk to, you could tell that was a guy who wanted to put his best suit on and go somewhere, so that’s really nice too.”

Finally, Meyers was asked by Deadline whether he’s jealous of other late-night hosts having an audience. “Late Night” has yet to tape in front of a live audience. 

“It will be fascinating to see what it’s like to be in front of a talk show audience again. I feel like I’ve forgotten. I’m worried that the first time they make a noise, I’m going to turn on them and scream, “We’re trying to have a conversation.” We’re not rushing back, we’re going to wait until September at the earliest to bring audiences back, but it will be interesting to see it from the other side on The Tonight Show,” Meyers said.

Dan Abrams: Someone in Donald Trump’s Inner Circle Could See Charges

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

The hearings into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol remain ongoing, and following the raid on former Trump Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark this week, anchor Dan Abrams has a bold belief. 

Abrams, the founder of Mediaite and anchor on NewsNation, considers that for the first time, someone from former President Donald Trump’s inner circle could see criminal charges.

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

“It’s generally seemed to me that the criminal inquiry into Trump and his inner circle in connection with Jan. 6 wasn’t going anywhere. I’m talking about what I actually think is happening, that’s all.”

Abrams stated the latest hearing and the Wednesday raid on Clark are what altered his view on whether anyone could end up seeing charges.

“What we learned today changed my analysis. That’s because federal investigators just raided the home of former trump department of justice lawyer Jeffrey Clark,” Abrams added. 

“He was the guy heading the justice department’s environmental division who Donald Trump tried to put in as acting attorney general could see was apparently the only one within the DOJ willing to support the effort to overturn the 2020 election.”

Finally, Abrams conveyed that the raid’s timing before the hearing could examine Clark’s role could lead to something significant when facing jail time.  

“To get authorization to raid his home now, the day before the Jan. 6 committee held a hearing examining Jeffrey Clark’s role in trying to overturn the election, suggest to me that they believe they suddenly could have something big,” Abrams concluded.

In a decision many already knew was coming following the leaked draft, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, overturned Roe v. Wade, which is the landmark enactment that established the constitutional right to abortion.

Since 1973, women have been permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy in the United States; however, now the decision on this matter will return to the states, with a good portion expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion.

There was no shortage of news media reaction when the official ruling came down, some celebrating it while others shared concern for what’s to come a post-Roe v. Wade United States.
