NBC announced today that it will air a special live program following the Republican National Convention on Thursday, July 21, the final night of the GOP gathering. Variety reports that the program will be a live version of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” set for 12:35 a.m. ET.
“Presumably, Meyers will have choice words for the party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Donald Trump, whom he has jokingly banned from the show,” Variety notes.
Other late-night hosts have also been adjusting their schedules. “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” is going live on the East Coast on CBS for two weeks during the July conventions — July 18-21, during the GOP Convention, and July 25-28 during the Democratic Convention.
Meanwhile, Bill Maher is expanding his HBO show “Real Time,” while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” plans to tape on the ground at both conventions.
