Seth Meyers to Get Primetime ‘A Closer Look’ Special One Day After VP Debate

”A Closer Look Thursday“ will air live from Meyers’ ”Late Night“ studio

NBC is giving Seth Meyers’ “Late Night” segment, “A Closer Look,” a primetime close-up.

Meyers will host “A Closer Look Thursday” on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 8:30 p.m., which will air live (in ET) from his “Late Night” studio in 30 Rock. The half-hour special will come one day after the only Vice Presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris.

As the monumental election gets down to the wire, Meyers and “Closer Look Thursday” will dissect the events of the day, up-to-the-minute breaking news and other important facts as America begins to cast its vote. “A Closer Look” is one of Meyers’ most popular segments on his NBC late-night series.

In past election years, NBC has typically rolled out special segments of “Saturday Night Live’s” “Weekend Update” in primetime, often coming after the three presidential debates. The first one in the 2020 cycle between Donald Trump and his challenger Joe Biden is set for Sept. 29. “SNL” for its part is scheduled to return Oct. 3, complete with Jim Carrey portraying Biden, and run for five consecutive shows, taking it through the Nov. 3 election day.

From Universal Television and Broadway Video, “Closer Look Thursday” will be executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Mike Shoemaker.
