'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' Not Canceling Brooklyn Shows Despite Hurricane Sandy


A representative for the late-night talk show says they are bringing in back-up generators in case of a power failure caused by the storm.

A storm can't prevent "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" from filming its shows in Brooklyn. Despite news that Hurricane Sandy is predicted to hit the East Coast on Monday night, October 29 or early Tuesday, October 30, the ABC talk show is moving on with its plans to shoot this week's shows at the Brooklyn Academy of Music starting Monday.

"We are bringing in back-up generators and will be able to do our show in the event of a power failure," says a representative for the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted program in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "We are also flying staff and crew out earlier to beat the storm. We have had no audience drop-outs so far despite news of the storm."

The late-night talk show has enlisted Chris Rock, Kelly Ripa and Alicia Keys as guests for October 29 episode, Howard Stern, Tracy Morgan and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings for October 30, David Letterman and Vampire Weekend for October 31, and Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert as well as and The Avett Brothers featuring The Brooklyn Philharmonic for November 1 episode.

In anticipation of the storm, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered all train, bus and subway service to be shut down starting Sunday night. The warning also led the Broadway League to cancel all shows on Sunday and Monday nights.
