Seth Meyers' debut as host of "Late Night" on Monday was sort of surprising.
The opening monologue, which was expected to be his strength, was the weakest part of the show. The interviews, on the other hand, were the strongest part.
As expected, Meyers' monologue was pretty much a Weekend Update which he had long anchored on "Saturday Night Live" - delivered standing up. And not a particularly good Weekend Update. Most of the joke fell flat, and Meyers' didn't seem to realize how poorly it was going because of the hooting and hollering from the hyped-up studio audience.
