Seth Meyers Is Happy To Be Back At Work; Teases First Script Post-Strike

Late-night is back, and Late Night host Seth Meyers is teasing a bit of the first post-strike script. In an Instagram post Monday, Meyers gives us a peek of the script in a photo, which confirms his first target is — who else? — Donald Trump.

“Welcome back, everyone!,” the script in the photo reads. “I’m not sure what you’ve been up to these past five months, but I’ve used the time to reflect and have come to the conclusion that yes, I’ve been too hard on the guy. Who among us isn’t under multiple indictments?”

“So happy to be back at my desk writing again,” he wrote. “Tonight’s show is an hourlong ‘Closer Look’ that will catch up on the last five months as well as today’s events. I mean what are the odds that the day we come back a former President is appearing in court? Only 2-1? Huh, I thought they’d be higher…,” he writes.

Of course, Meyers is referring to Trump’s civil fraud trial, which got underway today in NYC.

Meyers also gave a nod to the show’s writers: “Shout out to @salgentile who turned in an 80 page script last night and @cuecardwally_official who just ran out to buy more Sharpies.”
