Good news for all of you missing Jimmy Kimmel from the late-night lineup on Monday; after the show from his native Brooklyn (at the Brooklyn Academy of Music) was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy’s arrival in the Big Apple, he will be back on Tuesday now that the worst of the storm is over.
In a post on his Twitter account, Kimmel confirmed the news, and guest Howard Stern and Tracy Morgan are both still set to be appearing based on everything we have heard so far. After all, both stars are already in the city, and it’s not like Tracy will have as much to do given that Sandy has temporarily halted production of the final season of “30 Rock.” This is just one of many shows that has seen a temporary stop to production, including “666 Park Avenue,” “Person of Interest,” and “Law & Order: SVU.”
There is no word just yet officially on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report,” but we have a feeling that both of these shows will also go on as planned given that the storm recovery process has begun. After all, other Manhattan shows including “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” actually filmed shows on Monday, even though they did so without an audience. (Somehow, Letterman’s in particular was a gem, as he spent most of the hour being snarky and having fun with his guests and his band as if it was just another show for him.)
Stay tuned, as we’ll have more news on Kimmel’s show once we get a little bit closer to it happening.
