If Meyers had attempted a stunty skit or a song-and-dance routine, he would have caught hell for it. So he stuck to the jokes... And look, that's not a bad thing. That's just Seth Meyers being Seth Meyers, and we love him for it.
No gimmicks. No dancers. Just a smart guy in a tux saying funny things. NBC late-night newcomer Seth Meyers scored big laughs with his opening monologue, which took aim at fat-cat network targets, not the nervous nominees.
Some folks proved that a few well-placed digs at their fellow nominees, co-stars and showbiz mucky-mucks can go a long while; host Seth Meyers' monologue, however, merely proved it can go on for a long while.
Meyers didn't appear to be jittery and played it safe, a good TV traffic cop keeping everything moving along. That's part of his job as host, and he handled himself with aplomb. But it all played out like a nondescript, cookie-cutter sitcom.
