Late Night is an American late-night talk and variety show airing on NBC since 1982. Four men have hosted Late Night: David Letterman (1982–93), Conan O'Brien (1993–2009), Jimmy Fallon (2009–14), and Seth Meyers (2014–present).[1] Each iteration of the show was built around its host, and maintained distinct identities aside from the title. The longest-serving host to date was O'Brien, who hosted Late Night with Conan O'Brien for 16 years, from September 1993 to February 2009.
