Late Night With Seth Meyers was being broadcasted from home, specifically from Seth Meyer’s attic—evidently, without a live audience due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But, Meyers returned to the studio from early September 2020. 

And now, NBC could be allowing audiences inside the studio as well, although the exact date for that hasn’t been fixed yet.

Read the full article to learn recent updates related to the show, including the latest important news, ticket booking, and internships information.

How ‘Late Night Show with Seth Meyers’ Handled the Pandemic Uncertainty?  

Previously on March 13,  the show had to abandon its plan to film its daily episodes because the scheduled guests canceled their appearance at the last moment because of Covid-19 concerns.

In that specific date, almost all the late-night shows, including Meyers, had announced that they would suspend production from March 16. But for Meyers, the show’s production team then had to decide how to adapt to the uncertain situation brought forth by the pandemic. 

Late Night Show was Broadcasted From Seth Meyers’ Attic for Almost Five Months

Seth Meyers’ last in-studio episode— which was shot before NBC closed down the productions amid increasing fear of the coronavirus pandemic—was uploaded on YouTube on March 12, 2020.

The segment didn’t even encompass adequate contents that could be presented during the time slot of the entire show. Meyers and his team had to cancel the full show but still did his trademark ‘A Closer Look’ segment, the script for which was written the previous night.

From then onwards, like most of us, Meyers also got into the work-from-home bandwagon, taking the concept to a professional level with interesting content that included more ‘A Closer Look’ episodes and light-hearted segments such as ‘Jokes Seth Can’t Tell.’

The first ‘A Closer Look’ segment from home was uploaded on the show’s YouTube channel on March 23, 2020. After that, he hosted his shows from home for approximately five months.

During this time, the comedy talk show host usually worked out of an attic at his home—which might have made his sons a bit mad as it was their playroom before their dad took over and turned it into his workspace.

Still, the silver-lining of the whole process was that Mayers realized the importance of spending more time with his kids and wife.

Talking To Deadline, he expressed that the pandemic situation cut down lengthy production schedules, which in return gave him the opportunity to spend more time with his family members. 

I know it’s strange to talk about things that are a little bit nicer during these awful times but because of the necessity of having to upload things sooner...I wrap around 4:30pm rather than getting home at 8:30pm. So, I am seeing my kids more. That’s been nice, they’re not bad people. My wife was right, I just had to spend some time with them

Seth Meyers Returned to the Studio in Early September

After almost five months of Late Night Show from home, in September 2020, Meyers returned to his studio. However, it was an empty studio with no live audience and just his staff. The ‘A Closer Look’ segment from this show was uploaded on YouTube on September 8, 2020.

Since returning, he has been doing regular shows from the studio. However, instead of having guests over there, he interviews them through virtual mediums.

When will The Audience be Allowed Back in the studio?

It is not sure when the audience will be allowed to attend the live taping of the Late Night with Seth Meyers, which takes place at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, New York.

The official ticket distributors for the live taping, 1iota, have not provided any specific date regarding the return of the audience. But going by the fact that Meyers has been shooting from inside the studio for almost a month, it would not be wrong to assume that viewers will be allowed inside soon. However, there’s no way to be sure about that considering how rapidly the coronavirus situation changes.

Nevertheless, one can still start to prepare for the time when audiences will finally be allowed to watch the live taping of the famous show.

How to Cash-in 'Late Night With Seth Myers’ Internships Opportunities?

If you always wanted to grasp the opportunities in showbiz, then you could follow the footsteps of Kelly Jahn, an English major from the College Of Liberal Arts, Kelly Jahn, who was awarded an internship opportunity by the show’s production in 2020.

Jahn got the opportunity because she was motivated to do something in the showbiz and comedy industry. Out of that sheer motivation, she applied for the role even in the time of pandemic and landed it on her own. 

The Long Island, New York native, disclosed to the College Of Liberal Arts that her responsibilities as an intern of the show had included audience recruitment, office work maintenance, social media’s content creation, and assistance to the wardrobe department and audience necessities.

Interns also rotate onto social media, and we basically sit and watch the show while it’s happening in the control room...and we take notes on what parts of the show that we think could be used for the social media department, to make into gifs, or just basically stuff they think would be funny to post or quotes that they could use to post on Instagram, and stuff like that.
