NBC taps Seth Meyers for Olympic color commentary; Meyers takes dig at Romneys


Still taking heat after a week’s worth of technical difficulties and screw-ups, it looks like NBC finally did something right.

Look, it's @sethmeyers21 on the #NBC channel that isn't MSNBC or Bravo. #Olympics

The “SNL” star and “Weekend Update” host may have been just what the much-maligned network needed to garner some much-needed praise from viewers.

Looks like NBC’s gamble has paid off:

@sethmeyers21 all that weekend update turned you into a good announcer #niceolympiccoverage

— Coleman Walker (@cwalker1013) August 3, 2012

If NBC wants to end the #nbcfail, they should make @sethmeyers21 the lead anchor for all primetime coverage

Take note, NBC. You’re getting free advice.


Uh-oh … time to add Meyers’ name to the growing list of people suffering from Rafalca Derangement Syndrome:


Oh my god @sethmeyers21 announcing the horse dancing event.

— Becky (@schmadurrr) August 3, 2012

@sethmeyers21 loved your Romney horse coverage on nbcsports- thanks for lowering standards & keeping it real.

— KVL (@kelsowhatt) August 3, 2012

@sethmeyers21 was great on NBCSN talking about Romney's wife's horse.

— agedavis (@agedavis) August 3, 2012

"When you say I don't know what my wife's horse is doing in the #Olympics, that is the longest way to say you have no idea how rich I am!"

— Jeffrey Lipack (@jefflipack) August 3, 2012

The previous tweet is a quote from @sethmeyers21 discussing Mitt Romney and his wife's horse which is competing in Dressage at the #Olympics

— Jeffrey Lipack (@jefflipack) August 3, 2012

Ugh. Seth, you’re an alleged comedian. Isn’t it time for some clever material? Give it a rest already.
