Seth Meyers gets off to a rocky start on 'Late Night' Published: February 25, 2014

Seth Meyers's first episode of 'Late Night' wasn't boring, says the Daily Beast. Amy Poehler and Joe Biden were his first guests, after all. But he still has a long way to go before he fits in on late night.

Seth Meyers had to live up to the legacy of late night's golden boy, Jimmy Fallon, who hosted the time slot before he did. He had to prove that Fallon's reign isn't a fluke, that late night really can be a home for the affable and good-natured.

And, most importantly, he had to show that the acute and observant brand of humor he displayed for 12 and a half years on Saturday Night Live, many of those years spent as head writer and host of Weekend Update, translates to the late-night talk show format.
