Promo: Late Night with Seth Meyers

From Studio 8H to Studio 8G, Late Night with Seth Meyers is just steps days away.

You can now follow ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ on Twitter as well.

But should a Meyers show not pan out, insiders confirm that the alternatives include Bravo executive and Watch What Happens Live hostAndy Cohen or America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon

It will be on at 12 am following ‘Colbert,’ and co-produced by Nerdist, Tom Lennon & Ben Garant and Funny Or Die. As per the content, Deadline reports, “The show, Comedy Central’s first midnight strip, will be formatted as a comedic panel show that will have a heavy social-media presence integrated throughout.”

In the past on his podcast, Hardwick described his Comedy Central pilot as a pop culture spin on The Daily Show and also likened it to ‘Attack of the Show.’ How much of that remains is to be seen. This will be his third on-going chat show across three different networks.

Even more interesting is it puts Hardwick in direct timeslot competition with fellow Nerdist network podcaster and friend Pete Holmes.

The Emmy-winning actor may replace Carson Daly in a late-night half hour interview program, according to one executive involved in the network’s program planning.

Yes, a TV version of ‘Here’s The Thing’ sounds good.

Get Hoodie Allen on Jimmy Fallon!

Hoodie’s personal plea to make his TV debut on ‘Late Night.’ This is a signal boost because he very much deserves it and more people deserve to hear his music.

As they absolutely should.

Leno’s contract is up in September 2014 and apparently includes a huge penalty for NBC if they were to terminate it early.
