Seth Meyers NOT Leaving Late Night, Despite Report (EXCLUSIVE)
Seth Meyers is NOT leaving “Late Night,” despite a bogus OK! report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the tabloid’s story, which claims the host is “already getting antsy less than a year into his prestigious gig because he feels the show’s material isn’t up to par.”
According to a so-called “insider” for the magazine, “Seth is way too brainy to be interviewing celebrities, and he’s getting really frustrated. He wants to win awards and be more of a Norman Lear type, writing and creating other shows.”
The OK! source says that despite the show’s solid ratings and Meyers’ five-year contract, his friends can’t see him sticking around because “his brain will fry.” “Seth doesn’t want a 20-year career on the talk show circuit,” the insider tells the tabloid, which is not exactly a leader in showbiz industry news.
It’s hard to make any predictions about the next 20 years, but Gossip Cop can say that OK!’s speculation about Meyers being “bored” and looking to leave “Late Night” at this point is completely off base. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop exclusively, it’s “100 percent not true.” So expect to see Meyers continue in his role, and expect to see OK! continue to get stories like this one wrong.
