'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' cancels Monday BAM show
"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" which plans to originate from the Brooklyn Academy of Music this week, has canceled Monday's show. Here's the statement:
Due to stupid Hurricane Sandy and in the interest of the safety of our studio audience, Jimmy Kimmel Live! will not broadcast tonight from the Harvey Theatre at Brooklyn Academy of Music. We are hopeful to be back on the air tomorrow night with Howard Stern, Tracy Morgan and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.
By the way, with the exception of news, much of New York television and movie production has stopped. It's an extensive list -- here from the Mayor's Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting. Keep in mind that many of those listed here are currently in production, so it's a large number of shows currently on ice. Other talk shows -- like "Katie," "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" -- have also canceled Monday's productions. Besides safety reasons, it's difficult to impossible to muster studio audiences. No word yet from "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." Both are expected to tape later at this point.
