Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon Taping Tuesday Shows With Audiences After Sandy Interruptions
Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon Taping Tuesday Shows With Audiences After Sandy InterruptionsAs promised, Jimmy Kimmel is moving 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.

A rep 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 they were working with backup power generators and flying in additional crew members. The city later suspended outdoor filming permits -- and while Kimmel went dark, fellow late night hosts Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman taped without audiences.
Fallon's show announced Tuesday morning that his show would resume filming with an audience. Donald Trump, Andy Cohen and musical guest Trey Anastasio are all confirmed to attend.
Subway service and bridges between Brooklyn and Manhattan remain shut down.
Guests scheduled for the rest of 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.
