Why Seth Meyers Is 'Blacklisted' From The 'Today' Show

All kinds of morning show secrets were revealed Tuesday night in an interview between Seth Meyers and the "Today" show co-hosts.

Meyers confessed that he was once scheduled to appear on "Today" but overslept and never made it to the show. Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie remembered the incident well, and said that this is why Meyers has never been invited back.

"You've been blacklisted," Lauer told him. "Have you noticed we haven't called you since then?"

But Meyers didn't seem too upset about missing the opportunity to wake up at 4 AM.

"Yes, I have noticed," Meyers said. "Boo hoo...Everyday I sleep in and I'm like, 'I could be talking with crazy people around me!'"

Watch the video for the interview on NBC's "Late Night."
