“Now that is a show that would make college-age Seth Meyers very happy (and) also the current-age Seth Meyers very happy”.


Letterman was the first presenter to host the Late Night franchise until 1993.


The NBC show has also been hosted by Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon and finally Meyers, who took up the role in 2014.


Earlier this month production was cancelled for several days after Meyers tested positive for Covid- 19.


“The bad news is, I tested positive for Covid (thanks, 2022!) the good news is, I feel fine (thanks vaccines and booster!)” he wrote at the time.
