In an effort to provide real-time commentary and analysis during the upcoming midterm elections, the NBC show “Late Night with Seth Meyers” will go live on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Joining Meyers on the program will be MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, host of “All in with Chris Hayes.” Additionally, “Late Night’s” Amber Ruffin will do a live version of her popular segment “Amber Says What.”
