MUMBAI: Late-night host and Saturday Night Live veteran Seth Meyers has extended his contract with NBC Entertainment through February 2021.

Meyers began his tenure at Late Night in February 2014 and since his arrival the show has remained a vital component of NBC’s late-night dominance.

“I can’t thank NBC enough for continuing to support our show and this more than makes up for my disappointment in not getting cast in The Wiz,” said Meyers.

“As a writer, performer and host, Seth has a rich history at NBC and we are thrilled that he’ll be at the helm of Late Night for many more years. His knowledge of both current events and pop culture is unparalleled and he brings that expertise to Late Night every night. The show couldn’t be in better hands,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt. 

Meyers will also host a 2016 New Year’s Eve Late Night 10 pm primetime special that will highlight all the news and current events of the year.

Late Night with Seth Meyers, which airs at 12:30 a.m. and often outperforms The Late Show with Stephen Colbert despite starting an hour later, averaged a 0.51 rating, 3 share and 1.658 million viewers overall in the fourth quarter of 2015, to maintain 100 per cent of its 18-49 rating year to year and grow by four per cent in total viewers. For the quarter, Late Night stretched its advantage over CBS’s Late Late Show to +50 per cent in adults 18-49 (with a 0.51 rating versus a 0.34), up from the prior year’s +46 per cent (0.51 vs. 0.35), and increased its margin over ABC’s Nightline in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. ET to +47 per cent (0.56 vs. 0.38 for that half-hour), up from the year-earlier +39 per cent (0.57 vs. 0.41).

Late Night with Seth Meyers is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Mike Shoemaker.
