Jimmy Fallon & David Letterman: No Studio Audience
It has been a crazy week for New Yorkers thanks to Hurricane Sandy’s harsh weather conditions, and both Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman were forced to tape their shows with no audience last night (October 29).
The “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” stud gave his opening monologue outside his Rockefeller Center studio, noting, "I'm hoping, if you're watching, you are at home, you are safe, you're warm . . . but we're here.”
Fallon’s guests included Seth Meyers, Padma Lakshmi, Robert Zemeckis and Imagine Dragons, all of whom appeared in the empty room.
He gushed, "All of our guests came, which was big for us. We were worried that we weren't going to get guests, but we got some good ones here."
"Theater owners had to cancel all Broadway shows today. Many performers were having trouble making it into the city. You could tell by that one show, Blue Man Guy,” Jimmy quipped.
Meanwhile, Letterman taped “The Late Show” with only Paul Schaffer and the band by his side. "We're in the middle of Hurricane Sandy and we have no studio audience, but we do have quite a show for you tonight. Thank you for joining us in the Ed Sullivan Shelter,” stated Dave.
