Seth Meyers Says Scooby Doo Is the Real College Cheating Scandal Culprit (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Seth Meyers has investigated the ongoing college admissions fraud scandal, and he identified the real criminal behind it all: cartoon detective/dog Scooby-Doo.

Ok, not really. But on Wednesday’s episode of “Late Night,” Meyers was pretty amazed by an email federal prosecutors say actress Felicity Huffman wrote that used what is probably Scoob’s most famous catch phrase.

Huffman was among 48 individuals charged on Tuesday with committing fraud to get their children into top universities, including fixing SAT results by arranging a test proctor who would change incorrect answers, according to charging documents. She was arrested Tuesday morning and her bail was set at $250,000. Huffman has not responded to a request for comment from TheWrap, and she has not commented publicly on the matter.

But included in the evidence prosecutors released to the public on Tuesday was an email, which prosecutors say was written by Huffman, in which she said “Ruh Roh. Looks like [my daughter’s high school] wants to provide own proctor.”

“Make no mistake, the parents in these cases were very aware of what they were doing,” said Meyers. Describing the email, Meyers continued: “She literally sat down at a computer and typed the words ‘ruh roh.’ Making this the rare case where Scooby-Doo was the criminal.”

There’s lots more. Watch the whole clip above.

Will Forte, Jason Sudeikis Have a Real Beef With Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig’s Garth and Kat (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis probably didn’t send Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig a Valentine’s Day card today.

Forte and Sudeikis, who formed Bon Jovi “opposite band” Jon Bovi during their “Saturday Night Live” days, found out some unsettling news Wednesday about one particularly tough time they got bumped from the lineup. As it turns out, the night Jon Bon Jovi himself hosted “SNL,” Armisen and Wiig’s own musical duo, Garth and Kat, made the cut instead.

Shot through the heart — err, stabbed through the butt. (That will make sense once you watch last night’s “Second Chance Theatre.”)

The loss to Garth and Kat, new information that was delivered somberly by former “SNL” head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor Seth Meyers, was extra upsetting to Sudeikis.

“Will and I, we’d go and get the lyrics off the internet, and take HOURS writing the opposite lyrics to these preexisting lyrics,” Sudeikis said on Wednesday’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers.” ” [Armisen and Wiig], they would get decked out in their vests and their boffo wigs, and then they’d go and just make it up on the spot.”

When you put it that way, it does kind of sound unfair. Thank goodness Meyers currently has a platform to catch skits that fell through the cracks all those years ago.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

“Late Night With Seth Meyers” took a day trip Wednesday night, which featured the drunk adventures of host Seth Meyers and his friend Ina Garten aka “The Barefoot Contessa.”

Meyers took the Food Network star and famous Hamptons resident to the Corner Bistro in Manhattan to spend an afternoon sipping cocktails. OK, more than just sipping. They even concocted a few of their own — though Ina’s turned out much prettier (and probably tastier) than Seth’s.

When they weren’t drinking, which is really what they do throughout the majority of the nearly 10-minute segment, they were taste testing fast food sauces vs. Garten’s own gourmet recipes, challenging her ability to match bare feet to the celebrities they belong to (honestly, it’s weirdly impressive), and doing “chef-pressions” of her famous co-workers like Gordon Ramsay and Emeril Lagasse.

Garten couldn’t stop herself from mentioning her husband, Jeffrey Garten — who has become a meme because of the extent to which she tells “Barefoot Contessa” viewers stories about him. “Can we not talk about Jeffrey???” Meyers shouted at her, jokingly. “Oh my God! Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Jeffrey.”

But they made up and Meyers even brought out a handmade bubblegum pink cake he crafted in honor of Garten’s birthday the following day, which was definitely not as gorgeous a dessert as the chef could have made herself.

Watch Seth and Ina get trashed in the clip above.

New ABC Boss Karey Burke: ‘I Would Be Thrilled’ to Add Another Late-Night Show After ‘Kimmel’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

CBS has James Corden at 12:37 a.m., immediately following Stephen Colbert. NBC’s Seth Meyers starts two minutes earlier, just a commercial break after Jimmy Fallon calls it a night. ABC airs two 30-minute shows, news program “Nightline” and viral video show “Right This Minute,” across the same hour — is now the time for the Disney-owned broadcast net to add a second late-night comedy/variety show after “Jimmy Kimmel Live?”

We asked new ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke exactly that question today, roughly five hours or so after Jimmy Kimmel himself schlepped all the way out to Pasadena to introduce the former Freeform originals chief to the Television Critics Association during our winter press tour.

Kimmel did a masterful job roasting his new boss and longtime home network, and then Burke endeared herself to the reporters with her college graduation photo, a snapshot of “Bachelor” night at the Burke household, and generally just being refreshingly open and honest in answering our many, many questions.

Readers can find Kimmel’s best jokes from the surprise appearance here, and the late-night snippet of our conversation with Burke below.

TheWrap: Jimmy Kimmel has some momentum going — is it time to launch a second late-night show after him to compete with James Corden and Seth Meyers?
Burke: I am interested in anything that Jimmy wants to do beyond his show. If he is interested in producing something else, I would be thrilled to enter that conversation.

So Kimmel would get right of first refusal on the 12:30 time slot?
KB: I actually don’t have any idea what our arrangement is with Jimmy, so I can’t speak to anything that’s legal or specific, but I can tell you, based on the relationship, we certainly would turn to him first for any conversation about expanding in the nighttime.

TW: “Nightline” (the long-standing series currently at 12:37 a.m. on ABC) is an ABC News program — would the news division be grandfathered into the time slot?
KB: We are partners. We work very well with– no one owns any of the time periods. We work together to figure out where news programming is best deployed. “Nightline” is an institution that has done amazing work for this network for many, many years.

[At this point an ABC PR rep interjected to remind us this conversation of swapping “Nightline” for a second late-night show is all “speculative.” We know, we know.]

KB: Those thoughts are all pie in the sky, but we love Jimmy. Anything he’s interested in doing for ABC — primetime, daytime, morning — we would have those conversations with him.

Seth Meyers Pleads to Save Canceled Comedy Central Series ‘Detroiters’: ‘It Was Brilliantly Stupid’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Count Seth Meyers among those lamenting the demise of “Detroiters.”

In an op-ed for Vulture on Friday, the “Late Night” host professed his love for the sitcom, which was canceled earlier this week by Comedy Central after two seasons. “I am sad that, for now, ‘Detroiters’ will not have a third season,” he wrote. “I am hopeful that a network looking for a new jewel to fill its schedule will rescue it.”

Meyers specifically called out the episode “Hark Motors,” as something that should’ve been lauded by critics the same way that the “Teddy Perkins” episode of FX’s “Atlanta” was.

“Not only does it also include a trip to a strange man’s mansion (this time, it’s the great Kevin Dorff), but you will also see my favorite special effect in a decade,” he wrote. “It’s a car that s—-. In fact, I would urge everyone to watch the cold open of this episode, which includes a full-throated defense of the superhero the Flash, a child slapping a grown man, a woman being told to hold onto a rope so she doesn’t slide around in the back of a van, and five other great jokes all in under two minutes. It was brilliantly stupid.”

Meyers isn’t the only one who is hopeful the show will find a new home. Creator and star Sam Richardson (“Veep”) is also holding out hope that his comedy “will find a home elsewhere.”

“Sadly, @Detroiters won’t be picked up for a season 3 at Comedy Central,” Richardson wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “I want to thank everyone who watched and supported the show. It was a dream to make and I’m proud that those who did see it enjoyed it. Maybe it will find a home elsewhere, who knows? But truly, thank you.”

“Detroiters,” which co-starred “SNL” alum Tim Robinson, is a single-camera buddy comedy that centers on two local ad men (Richardson and Robinson) who make low-budget commercials in Detroit, Michigan.
