The show returned to NBC on Monday, featuring guests such as Sterling K Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, and David Byrne. Four more shows were scheduled to air this week but have now been cancelled while Meyers self isolates.
Taking to Twitter to announce the “bad” news, the 48-year-old host assured fans that he felt “fine” and was fully vaccinated and boosted.
The bad news is, I tested positive for COVID (thanks, 2022!) the good news is, I feel fine (thanks vaccines and booster!) We are canceling the rest of the shows this week, so tune in next Monday to see what cool location we will try and pass off as a studio!!!

Fellow talk show host Jimmy Fallon also took to social media on Monday (January 3), revealing that he had also caught the virus over Christmas.
“Hey guys, on the first day of our holiday break I tested positive for Covid,” he wrote. “I was vaccinated and boostered which made me lucky enough to only have mild symptoms. Thank you to the doctors and nurses who work so hard around the clock to get everyone vaxxed.”
“Thank you to NBC for taking the testing protocols so seriously and doing a great job – and also thanks for putting me in the ‘What ‘chu talkin’ about Willis?’ isolation room when they told me the news.”
Late Night hopes to return on Monday (January 10).
