2014 Emmys: Watch Seth Meyers’ Opening Monologue

Fans of Seth Meyers from 'Saturday Night Live' and his still-young stint as host of 'Late Night' know that this is a performer perfectly suited for hosting the Emmys. Capable of leaping between sweet and sarcastic at a moment's notice while barely changing his signature dry delivery, Seth Meyers opened the 2014 Emmys ceremony with a monologue that could have come straight from one of his own shows.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Conquers the Universe
