Why are the late night talk shows never current. For example, tonight's Late NIght with Seth Meyers is a Repeat dated 9/25/19. The CBS and NBC late night shows were repeats also. Why is that? Iss it a matter of costs Does it cost Xfinity less to show reruns than the current shows?
As noted, they are not always new. Colbert and Fallon were repeats this week (10/14-10/18). As noted in last Thursday's show, Colbert is in New Zealand filming some bits for the show (and he's a big "Lord of the Rings" fan, which was filmed in NZ.) Also, November is a ratings "sweeps" month, so some shows may take a week or two off and then run new all November.
