"Late Night" host Seth Meyers brought the laughs to prime time Monday night for the Emmy Awards. As the evening of TV's bests kicked off, the funnyman dished up some hilarious zingers.
"This year, we're doing the Emmys on a Monday night in August, and if I understand television, (that) means the Emmys are about to get canceled."
Meyers ushered in the show by poking fun at MTV's recent VMA bash, due to the sheer ridiculousness of a network that doesn't air many videos anymore honoring the very content it left behind.
"That's like network TV holding an awards show and giving all the trophies to cable and Netflix!" he joked.
He had a good point! In fact, he had plenty of them in his opening routine.
Actually, the laughs started before Meyers even took the stage. In the days leading up to the big event, the funnyman shared some of his best pre-show material.
The fun kept coming, and that's no surprise. After all, the "Late Night" writers have been hard at work crafting the jokes for the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
