Still taking heat after a week’s worth of technical difficulties and screw-ups, it looks like NBC finally did something right.

The “SNL” star and “Weekend Update” host may have been just what the much-maligned network needed to garner some much-needed praise from viewers.

Looks like NBC’s gamble has paid off:

Take note, NBC. You’re getting free advice.

Uh-oh … time to add Meyers’ name to the growing list of people suffering from Rafalca Derangement Syndrome:

Ugh. Seth, you’re an alleged comedian. Isn’t it time for some clever material? Give it a rest already.

    Still glad I’m watching the Olympics with no volume on the set.

      I was watching tennis and listening to a Deneen Borelli speech. It must’ve struck a chord because when I looked up again, “The Real Housewives of New York” was on.

    When was the last time NBC was ready for primetime? 2004? As for Seth Meyers, I look forward to his painfully unfunny recurring sketches (a distinction he shares with, um, everyone on SNL) and his failed movie career when Lorne again decides to clean house.

    Occasionally I am reminded of how truly blessed I am when I have no idea who these people are.

    Storing this person’s name in my old decrepit brain might crowd out a much more important memory — such as behind which ear on one of my children’s dogs I scratched in 1963.

    Uh…Who is he?

    A Seth Meyers & Bill Maher Olympic commentary segment would be something the major media crowd could crow for.
