“Late Night With Seth Meyers” debuted last night with the perfect first guest — Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers’ one-time “Weekend Update” cohost on “Saturday Night Live.” These two go waaaaay back — just look at them as wee comedy babes!

And next time, Kanye, don’t be chugging Hennessy on the red carpet. Really. Keep reading »
