There’s not much Seth Meyers, host of NBC’s Late Night and Men’s Journal January 2018 cover guy, can’t do.
The former head writer of Saturday Night Live, Meyers is set to emcee the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which will be broadcast live on NBC on Sunday, January 8, starting at 8 p.m. EST. (Everyone on the West Coast can catch the show at 5 p.m. PST.)
If his success as the host of one of TV’s hottest late-night shows (and the 2014 Emmy Awards) is any indicator, Meyers has this in the bag.
The most reliable way to watch the show is to make sure NBC is part of your active basic cable subscription and, obviously, turn on your TV when the show’s about to start. If you want to stream it online, you’ll only be able to do so on NBC.com with proper cable credentials. (In the past, other TV providers and online outlets have begun to stream it, only to have their streams shut down by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the trade group that governs the Globes.) So if you’ve cut the cord, right now would be a good time to cozy up to someone who hasn’t.
As of what to expect from Meyers’ opening monologue and the overall tone of the show? The guy won’t shy away from hot topics. “With the monologue, as far as talking about anything in the news right now, it seems like this year more than ever Hollywood has its own internal politics that obviously deserve to be talked about,” Meyers said in an interview with People. “Going into it our focus is far more on the worlds that make these films and less on anything that’s happening in Washington.”
