Funny "fake news" master turned late night king Seth Meyers famously banned Donald Trump from his show way back in the summer of 2016, and he's kept his word. But when TVGuide.com caught up with the Late Night with Seth Meyers host at the 69th annual Writers Guild Awards at New York's Edison Ballroom on Sunday, he revealed the one condition on which he'd ease his own closed border.
"If he stepped down, we'd love to have him on," he told TVGuide.com in the exclusive video above. "If he wanted to do it on our show, that would be great." Sounds highly unlikely but then, what even is normal anymore?
Meyers might've been feeling a little bit charitable after losing out Best Comedy/Variety (Talk) series to Last Night with John Oliver. Elsewhere at the awards, some far less politically charged shows celebrated some wins, with FX snagging four of the biggest prizes of the night.
The Americans, which returns for its highly anticipated fifth season March 7, took home the award for Best Drama series, beating out Better Call Saul, Westworld, Stranger Things and even Game of Thrones. Best Comedy went to the freshman surrealist show Atlanta, which won over Silicon Valley, Transparent, Veep and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Atlanta also won the award for Best New Series over heavily buzzed about Stranger Things, This Is Us, Better Things and Westworld.
