I have watched Seth Meyers on Late Night since he took over the time slot.
His monologue was awkward, and the producers wisely ditched it a couple of months ago.
But his interview skills put most of his competitors to shame.
Case in point: his recent sitdown with Ellen Page.
Page was on the program to promote her movie Freeheld, the true story of a dying woman’s fight to leave her pension benefits to her lesbian partner.
Page was focused and somber; you could see her talking points reflected in her eyes. Seth was respectful of the film’s subject matter, but injected humor at just the right beats.
Jimmy Fallon? Take a look and take a lesson.
This is how you do it.
