Thus ending NBC's rating dominance.
Where have you been?
Their late night shows are still number 1, as is their special coverage news. Their primetime and 12 hour long Today Show are dead.
They still have coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, plus the Olympics and other sporting events, so I wouldn't count them out yet. And they have Grimm and a few other shows that are in the top 10.

Seth Meyers needs to trust his microphone, he always sound like he's yelling like Chris Hardwick which gets tiring after a while. I also thought his kid's desk and small waiting room chairs seemed uncomfortable. Amy Pohler(sp) seemed to be struggling with her dress as she sat and the lighting was harsh. He needs to move on from the Weekend Update format. Of course it's only the first night.

You think Grimm is in the top 10?! (49th)

All their top shows are football (which would be no matter the channel) and The Voice, and Blacklist because it's on after The Voice. After those three, Revolution is 46 and Grimm 49th.

Anyways I didn't watch Seth's show (was asleep) but the set looks horrible!

The biggest surprise though was Fred Armisen as the band leader because I know him as a comedic actor. I thought it would be a guest stint but it looks to be a permanent thing.
He was the drummer for the punk band Trenchmouth throughout the 90s, and has played with other bands before and since.

His last episode of SNL ended with him doing a fake British punk rock act (one he'd done on the show before) with a bunch of famous indie musicians and his friends coming out on stage:

Which brings me, once again, to “Lovely Day” and Armisen and Hader’s last goodbye. As Ian Rubbish and the gang sang sweetly, they were gradually joined onstage by a dream team of indie musicians: Aimee Mann, Michael Penn, Steve Jones of The Sex Pistols, J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, and, of course, Carrie Brownstein of both Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia, the land to which Armisen is apparently moving permanently.

Sorry for the crappy quality, this was the only video I could still find online (everything else got pulled):

I've only seen the monologue so far but I had no complaints. I dunno if I have the time to watch this and Daily Show and Colbert and At Midnight and Conan nightly, but it's certainly light years better than Jimmy Fallon.

I only saw about 20 seconds on the morning news today, but it looks like he has a Stargate looking thing on stage.

Re: Seth Rogen taking over Late Night after Fallon leaves?

Saw Late Night last night for first time and I was impressed. The talk was that Myers looked nervous in the first episode, but other than one or two stumbles over a word or two, I hardly noticed any nervousness.

To the poster who mentioned that his monologue sounded like Week-End Update, well, "Update" was basically his stand up style which is traditional in that he uses setups an punchlines. But I liked him a lot on Update so it doesn't bother me. He is at his core a stand up comic.

I also liked his interview with Kanye. I thought it was funny and not too fawning. Seth is apparently a big fan. BTW, you'd have to go a long way to find a musician who takes himself/herself as seriously as Kanye does.

I'll be DVR'ing more this week.

Armison's drummer is kinda cute, what little I did see of her at least.

Yes. The path to ratings dominance runs through 3 hours of Thanksgiving Day programming.
