Tuning in to TV: Late-night shows resuming regular schedule in New York
Question of the Day
As promised, Jimmy Kimmel moved forward with plans to tape his Tuesday show in Brooklyn.
ABC’s late-night host had planned to do the entire week from the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theater, but Hurricane Sandy prompted “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to nix Monday’s episode.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a representative for the Brooklyn-born comedian said Tuesday morning that plans were moving forward for an original broadcast, with Howard Stern, Tracy Morgan and musical guest Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings all confirmed to attend.
The show announced plans to prepare for Sandy on Sunday night, saying it was working with backup power generators and flying in additional crew members. The city later suspended outdoor filming permits — and while Mr. Kimmel’s show went dark, fellow late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman taped without audiences.
Mr. Fallon’s show announced Tuesday morning that his show would resume filming with an audience. Donald Trump, Andy Cohen and musical guest Trey Anastasio all were confirmed to attend.
Guests scheduled for the rest of Mr. Kimmel’s week on the East Coast include Chris Rock, David Letterman, and Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert — both of whom nixed their Monday shows.
Cooper’s daytime talk show canceled after two seasons
Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show will be wrapping after two seasons.
Warner Bros. said Monday that the marketplace made it increasingly difficult for “Anderson Live” to “break through” to viewers despite format changes, The Associated Press reports.
The show switched to live broadcasts in its second year but struggled to match the ratings performance of daytime front-runners, including “Ellen” and “Live With Kelly and Michael.”
Newcomers, including Katie Couric, also made the talk show arena more competitive.
