NBC’s twilight talk show Late Night With Seth Meyers will go live on Election Night to offer the nation some “real-time commentary and analysis on the day’s consequential midterm elections,” according to the network’s official press release.
Meyers, the former Saturday Night Live writer and host of Weekend Update, will air his show on Tuesday, November 6 at 12:35 a.m. ET, just hours after polls close and the majority of the night’s election results will be tallied. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is also scheduled to appear, along with Late Night’s Amber Ruffin, who will do a live version of her popular segment Amber Says What. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will be preempted that night due to election news coverage in the Eastern and Central time zones.
Meyers is not the only late night host set to air a live broadcast that night. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will begin its live coverage of the midterms live from the Ed Sullivan Theater an hour earlier on CBS, while The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will also delve into election analysis on Comedy Central starting at 11:00 p.m. EST.
What can viewers expect from Meyers as he tackles the ups and downs of that evening’s results? Check out some of his coverage from the 2016 Presidential campaign below:
