    I say with sincerity, this was the most interesting interview I have ever seen on Seth Meyers. I’m not saying that to be a jerk about previous interviews, there are a lot of them that were very interesting, but this was by far the most interesting one. I would love to see more like this.

    Just like they dumbed down Matt LeBlanc when he played Joey, Wally is actually a damn brilliant guy.

    Wally was better than Bronson would have been. Sincere interviews about behind the scenes stuff is way more fun than some celebrity giving rehearsed lines.

    I would love to see more crew interviews, maybe as online exclusives alongside Corrections? Just a thought… Can’t wait for the “True story of Mikey the Shoe”.

    Moment of honesty, I almost never watch Seth’s interviews with celebrities. I hardly know any, except Bernie. But this was great. Like others, wish it was a regular segment. Also, like others, this format has been fantastic. The stuff at home was great too. Seth and his team are on the list of 5 things that helped the last year not be even worse. 🙂

    I honestly have no idea who that Action guy is, but I am so glad he didn’t show up and Wally replaced him. Not only was it a great interview, but I learned something that changed my whole view of SNL. Every time I’ve seen someone obviously reading the cue cards, I thought they were just bad at memorizing their lines. I had no idea that they were supposed to be reading the cue cards and not memorizing. I mean, they still had the problem of reading them too obviously, but still…
