Late night shows are going home again.
James Corden’s The Late Late Show and Jimmy Kimmel’s Jimmy Kimmel Live have resumed filing their nightly shows remotely as the number of COVID-19 numbers in Los Angeles County has skyrocketed. Conan, which has been filming at Largo comedy club, isn’t returning this week.
“With Los Angeles back on lockdown, we’re once again taping the #LateLateShow in @JKCorden’s garage until it’s safe to return to our studio,” announced “The Late Late Show” Twitter account.
Corden is recording in his garage and Kimmel will be filming remotely from his home for the first two weeks of the year.
Most major studios have extended their holiday production hiatus as the number of coronavirus cases reaches almost 10,000 daily with 800,000 total cases in LA. More than two dozen TV series based in Southern California from CBS TV Studios, Warner Bros, TV, Universal TV, Sony Pictures Television and Walt Disney’s 20th Television and ABC Signature, are currently scheduled to return in mid-January.
The New York-based late-night shows The Tonight Show, The Late Show, and Late Night with Seth Meyers return to their socially distanced sets which they have been doing for the last few months.
