Watch Every Hilarious Seth Meyers "Day Drinking" Segment, from Seth's Brother Josh to Dua Lipa

Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna, and the Jonas Brothers have all knocked more than a few back with the Late Night with Seth Meyers Host. 

By McKenzie Jean-Philippe & Samantha Vincenty

What started as a couple of alcohol-fueled adventures with Seth Meyers' brother Josh Meyers and their parents way back in 2015 has turned into a Late Night With Seth Meyers phenomenon. Yes, we're talking about Meyers' joyous, boozy "Day Drinking" segment, in which he enlists some of our favorite celebrities to spend the day with him at an NYC bar.

How to Watch

Watch Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC weeknights at 12:35/11:35c and next day on Peacock.  

The premise is simple: Meyers interviews the stars as they ingest copious amounts of alcohol and compete in games that are oh-so-loosely related to their lives. When the guest is a singer, Meyers has also been known to launch into a slurred serenade or two (his rendition of Rihanna's "Work" is not to be missed). 

The results are delightfully uninhibited, as we realize celebs are just like us when they've had a few drinks. Equally clear is the fact that Meyers makes for one very fun drinking buddy. 

Below, every single "Day Drinking" with Seth Meyers segment, in order. 

Seth and Lizzo Go Day Drinking

"Day Drinking" debuted in the second year of Seth Meyers' tenure as Late Night Host, during a June 23, 2015 episode.

Given how close Meyers is to his parents and brother, who are his guests every year for Late Night's annual Thanksgiving episode, it's fitting that Josh Meyers—currently co-host of their Family Trips with the Meyers Brothers podcast—was the inaugural "Day Drinking" guest.

While the frisson of most "Day Drinking" segments since comes from Meyers and a celebrity getting acquainted over a drink (or 10), here, the charm lies in how well Seth and Josh know each other. Then their dad, Larry Meyers, shows up!

Seth and His Mom Go Day Drinking (2015)

Not to be outdone, Seth Meyers' mom Hillary joined her son for some "Day Drinking" on September 9, 2015. The (very cute) segment confirms the Meyers Family's previous assertion that Mom can drink the rest of them under the table. 

Seth and Retta Go Day Drinking (2017)

Is Retta as fun as her Parks and Recreation character, Donna "Treat Yo Self" Meagle? Yes, as this January 24, 2017 "Day Drinking" segment confirms.

The stand-up comedian and former Good Girls actress goes down in history as Meyers' first non-family-member "Day Drinking" guest. The two started off light with glasses of champagne before heading into dangerous territory with inventive cocktails inspired by their favorite TV shows. We also learned that Retta calls tequila "to kill ya."

Seth and Kelly Clarkson Go Day Drinking (2018)

Seth and Kelly Clarkson Go Day Drinking

In February 2018, The Kelly Clarkson Show Host joined Meyers at The Standard's rooftop bar as they downed cocktails that doubled as nods to her illustrious music career. Take the "Simon Cowell"—vodka and hot sauce—named for the AGT and former American Idol Judge, for example (Clarkson won Idol's first season). The best part, though, was when Meyers donned a pair of headphones and shamelessly belted a rendition of "Since U Been Gone." 

"Literally the first time I've ever been day-drinking. Not gonna lie, I LOVED IT!" Clarkson wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter) at the time. "Having the walk of shame around 5pm is way less embarrassing."

Seth and Ina Garten Go Day Drinking (2019)

Meyers and entertaining icon Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa herself, faced off in a slew of very funny challenges, from making Garten's very own cocktail recipes to guessing which photos of bare feet belonged to which celebrity. 

Seth and Rihanna Go Day Drinking (2019)

Is Rihanna's "Day Drinking" segment the all-time best installment? We can't say for sure, but we do know that it's the most watched with over 21 million views on YouTube. Meyers serves Robyn Rihanna Fenty many drinks inspired by her chart-topping hits: "Under My Rumbrella," "Diamonds In the Rhye," and “Bitch Better Have My Bunny”. Meyers even got an exclusive Fenty Beauty makeover that's just as amazing as it sounds. 

Meyers told James Corden that his session with RiRi was "the drunkest I've ever been, I think, and worth every second of it." He added that he came home and passed out on his apartment floor (and Meyers' wife, Alexi Ashe, took a hilarious photo of the moment). 

Seth and The Jonas Brothers Go Day Drinking (2020)

Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and former The Voice Coach Nick Jonas joined Meyers for some day drinking at the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Brooklyn. For support, Meyers brought along two brothers of his own: His actual brother Josh Meyers, and his "brother in case of emergency," comedian Jack McBrayer, who played the iconic Kenneth on 30 Rock

Seth and Lorde Go Day Drinking (2021)

Seth and Will Forte Go Day Drinking (2021)

It's no surprise that Meyers' former SNL coworker Will Forte brought major charisma to his "Day Drinking" episode, which included a MacGruber-style cocktail challenge, and a game in which Meyers and Forte did impressions of people they both know (Forte's Tina Fey needs some work). They also tell each other "I love you." Aww!

Post Malone joined Meyers at NYC country music bar The Waylon to celebrate his Twelve Carat Toothache album release with some tattoo-themed cocktails.

Seth and Lizzo Go Day Drinking (2022)

Seth and Lizzo Go Day Drinking

The December 2022 installment of "Day Drinking" sees Grammy winner Lizzo and the Late Night Host getting silly as they throw back festive shots of eggnog, and chug box wine directly from the bag—or as they call it, "wag the bag." They also tried out their best breakup speeches on one another.

Seth and Dua Lipa Go Day Drinking (2023)

Seth and Dua Lipa Go Day Drinking

Meyers and pop star Dua Lipa got plenty of drinking done in the most recent "Day Drinking" from December 2023. The "Houdini" singer made Meyers laugh hysterically when she asked him to rank his kids (Meyers joked that he does have a favorite, and "she knows who she is.") Dua also taught Meyers some Albanian curse words and forced Meyers to rap...and then Dua had to tap out a smidge early. After all those shots, we'd do the absolute same.
