" I think that kids who look like me and who live in neighborhoods like I grew up in deserve to know that they also can be super. We're seeing it with Black Panther right? They need to know that they can be superheroes too."Read More
"Jokes Seth Can't Tell" on Late Night With Seth Meyers is one of the best segments in late-night television. As usual, writers Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel were on hand to bring the black and lesbian humor in the recent installment, but they also had an assist from the hilarious Tiffany Haddish.Read More
A mock ad from Late Night with Seth Meyers, just before the March for Our Lives, addresses the idea that "these teenagers might be the answer to all our problems."Read More
There was apparently a pretty major cameo cut from Marvel's Black Panther. At least, there was according to Late Night with Seth Meyers' writer Amber Ruffin. Who was cut? Ruffin herself! Which is why she "hated" the movie so much she only saw it four times.Read More

SPOILERS all up in here.
Get Out was one of the best and most thought-provoking films of the year, and as it begins what I'm sure will be a successful journey through awards season one of its stars, Allison Williams, was on Late Night with Seth Meyers talking about the film. One of the most interesting things she brought up was the response of white audiences to her character. **SPOILERS beyond this point if you haven't seen the film.**Read More
"I would drop to my fucking knees," says the host, "Don't look at me Queen!"Read More
Seth Meyers Dismantles Trump’s “Insane” Attempt to Discredit the Tape Where He Brags About Sexual Assault
Another day, another statement from the President of the United States that supposes we're all as idiotic as his own progeny. Trump is now trying to imply that the "grab 'em by the pussy" recording wherein he brags about sexually assaulting women—and which he publically apologized for on television—is actually "fake news."Read More
Greta Gerwig talked to Seth Meyers about the letter she wrote to Justin Timberlake, asking if she could use one of his songs in her new movie, Lady Bird. It's an adorable video, but its real beauty is in how it reflects so much about the movie itself. And in watching this cute interview, I find myself flooded with admiration for the film all over again.Read More
"This is society-wide problem borne out of systemic misogyny and abuse of power," says the host, "and both parties need to take it seriously, no matter who's accused."Read More

It's Friday in 2017, so Donald Trump is wrapping up a bad week. This week was particularly notable for several reasons, though, as Seth Meyers noted last night on Late Night—and it just keeps getting worse.Read More
The last two days have been terrible due to the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night, which resulted in nearly 60 deaths and over 500 people injured. Those who don't see it as a rallying cry for real legislative attempts to prevent this from happening have already started saying it's too soon after the tragedy to talk about such a thing, which is nonsense for several reasons, including that the U.S. averages one mass shooting per day, with a "major" one about every two months.Read More
James Corden, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and Jimmy Kimmel all condemned Trump for his decision to rescind DACA, which protects 800,000 children of immigrants from deportation.Read More
"I've seen angrier Yelp reviews!"
Last night, all the late night talk show hosts tackled the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. Yes, even Jimmy Fallon.Read More
A commenter on this video on YouTube used the term "Linnamon roll" to describe Lin-Manuel Miranda in this interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and it's now my new favorite phrase. So, check out our favorite Linnamon roll in the above conversation about Hamilton's history and continuing relevance.Read More
Plus some bonus President Obama word-Judo.
Right now, Senate Republicans are trying to push through a "health care" bill to make good on their promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, whether or not the bill they replace it with is actually an improvement or a thing that most of the American people want. Despite hopeful reports that the bill could fall apart and spare us all, it still has a very real chance of passing as Republican Senators who are currently against it could still turn around and vote for it for a variety of reasons.Read More
Amy Poehler has a lot of experience with politics. That may mostly extend to her excellent run on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" and playing the world's most lovable politician as Leslie Knope on Parks and Rec, but that's exactly the kind of experience required to take up the "Really!?" segment again to mock the protestors of the Trump-themed Julius Caesar production.Read More
SNL’s Season Is Over, But Kate McKinnon Still Has Plenty of Jeff Sessions Material She Needs to Get Out of Her System
Saturday Night Live is off for the summer, which is upsetting for Kate McKinnon, who's forced to keep her delightfully creepy impressions of political figures bottled up inside, with no outlet. What's she to do when Kellyanne Conway is caught making fun of White House staff or Jeff Sessions spends hours chuckling and very slowly rambling about all the things he doesn't remember doing? Luckily, Seth Meyers is happy to help her out.Read More
Ally Hord discusses all the implications of the film for female actors, directors, and movie-goers. "Let's not pat ourselves on the back....women only account for 32% of speaking roles in movies," she says, "a real triumph would be bringing that ratio to half and half."Read More
