Seth Meyers is a Jimmy Fallon rerun: What happened to "Late Night"
experimentation?

NBC used to use the "Late Night" to take a chance -- on guys like
Letterman and Conan. Now with Meyers' appointment, it's clear NBC
doesn't want to take a chance.

She can always ask that question about "if you were a tree, what tree you
would be" to the "girl you wish you hadn't started a conversation with at a

People keep bringing this up inferring that Barbara Walters brought the
subject up. Katharine Hepburn brought the tree subject up and all
Walters did was ask what kind of tree:


There's the famous Walters trope that people love to mock: "If you were
a tree, what kind of tree would you be?"

She's anxious to set the record straight.

"I was interviewing Katharine Hepburn, and she said, `Oh, sometimes I
think I'm just an old tree,' so I said, `What kind of a tree?'"
