TV production in New York stays dark, but Kimmel's live!
As expected, the myriad of TV shows that film in New York will remain dark today in the storm’s devastating aftermath. Affected shows show include The Good Wife, Person of Interest, 30 Rock, Smash, Special Victims Unit, Celebrity Apprentice and 666 Park Avenue, among many others.
Early ratings results from Nielsen have also been delayed until further notice. That means we’ll have to wait to see how well Dancing with the Stars fared opposite all that Sandy coverage on The Weather Channel. (Those ratings coming later today).
But here’s some good news. Jimmy Kimmel Live! will broadcast an original show tonight from The Harvey Theater at BAM – Brooklyn Academy of Music. Howard Stern and Tracy Morgan will appear, as well as musical guest Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Meanwhile, Jimmy Fallon — who was freaking hilarious on Monday while taping in front of an empty studio audience — will do it again tonight, as will David Letterman, who has The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore as a guest.
