Seth Meyers has fallen into the clutches of the new variant. Omicron is rapidly spreading over the world, with the number of cases increasing once again. Late Night with Seth Myers has cancelled all remaining episodes for the week after host Seth Myers tested positive for COVID-19.
After winter vacation, the Late Night programme returned on Monday, January 3rd, 2022, with its first episode since December 16th. Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, and Chrissy Metz from NBC’s This Is Us were among the visitors, as was singer-songwriter David Byrne as the musical guest.
Seth Meyers, the host of Late Night, said in a tweet that he had just tested positive for COVID-19 and that the rest of the week’s shows had been cancelled. This comes only one day after Jimmy Fallon, another New York Late Night star, confirmed he had tested positive.
Seth Myers added in the tweet that he is only experiencing mild effects as a result of the vaccination and booster doses and that the program would return the following Monday in a surprise new distant location.
“The bad news is, I tested positive for COVID (thanks, 2022!) the good news is, I feel fine (thanks vaccines and booster!) We are canceling the rest of the shows this week, so tune in next Monday to see what cool location we will try and pass off as a studio!!!”
Fortunately, several programmes have discovered innovative ways to deliver information to fans remotely. Notably, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver are the most recent shows to reintroduce viewers.
Fans of live events are starting to accept these announcements as the new variant, Omicron spreads across the country. When Late Night with Seth Myers returns next Monday, January 10th, 2022, fans may expect to see what new place Seth Myers decides to host the show remotely from.
