Primetime Emmys Host Seth Meyers: ‘Avoid A Train Wreck’

That’s what the SNL vet and Late Night host replied this morning when Al Roker asked him to name his biggest goal for tonight’s NBC-broadcast 66th Primetime Emmycast. The filmed interview was shown during the third half-hour segment of NBC’s Today show. First came repeated viewings of Nicki Minaj’s “wardrobe malfunction” during Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards telecast. Ditto for revisits to Beyonce, Jay Z and Blue Ivy showing the love. Finally, it was Meyers’ turn.
