Seth Meyers has a self-proclaimed Steelers obsession. As a teenager living in New Hampshire, he used his allowance to subscribe to the Post-Gazette just so he could read about his favorite team. Of course, it took three days to get to him.
"This was pre-Internet. That's how dumb it was," Mr. Meyers said, noting that his father, Lawrence, grew up in Pittsburgh and instilled in his two sons a love of the city and the Steelers at a young age.
During a visit here Friday to promote his new NBC show, "Late Night With Seth Meyers," Mr. Meyers said he had been pleasantly surprised by his easy transition from "Saturday Night Live" to daily, late-night TV.
