Must-See Late Night Clip: Seth Meyers Predicts Next Week’s News

To close out his first week as NBC’s new Late Night host, Seth Meyers presented yet another new segment, “Next Week’s News,” in which he predicted upcoming news stories based on everything that happened this week. But it wasn’t the jokes themselves that made this bit special. It was the presence of Meyers’ “emergency sidekick” Dale, also known as SNL writer (and former featured player) Mike Robinson.

This was the first time Meyers has tapped his old show’s deep bench of talent to create the Weekend Update-like scenario at which he excelled so much. With an off-beat character improving by his side, Meyers could do what he does best: play the straight man. The results were unlike most things we see on late night TV these days.
