Late Night Update: Kimmel & Fallon Back with Audiences, Stewart/Colbert Off



Hurricane Sandy just doesn’t want to leave, does it? On top of New Yorkers going without public transportation some 42 hours since Mayor Bloomberg suspended subway and bus service, Big Apple-based late night TV shows are still feeling the effects of the storm. has confirmed with Comedy Central that, like yesterday, today’s scheduled tapings of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report have been cancelled. Reruns will air instead. 

Last night we also saw eerie audience-free versions of Late Show With David Letterman and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. This afternoon, Letterman will again tape a solo version of his show, with guests Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel, Ken Burns, and music from Andrew Bird. The intrepid Jimmy Fallon, however, is welcoming a full audience back to his 30 Rock studio with guests Donald Trump, Andy Cohen, and musical guest Trey Anastasio.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! is also resuming taping today at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The ABC host tweeted earlier today, “unless something weird happens, tonight’s show in #Brooklyn is ON like fleece on Gov Christie.”

Editor/Interactive Content Director Christian Blauvelt is’s expert for all things geek. Can’t tell the difference between a Kowakian monkey lizard and a Krayt dragon? Don’t know whether to order a raktajino or a Romulan Ale from your Ferengi barman? He’s your geek! This knowledge was acquired over many years of rigorous training during his youth on the swamp planet St. Petersburg, FL. Think of him like Channing Tatum in Magic Mike but with entertainment journalism in place of the custom furniture ambitions and minus the washboard abs. A stint on the ice planet Hoth (Northwestern University) finally led to him coming to Coruscant (New York City), where he helps share his knowledge with you all. He will desperately try to avoid puns like, "Set phasers for phun!"
