Many late-night shows, like The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, have temporarily suspended production. This comes as a result of the recent spread of the coronavirus, which is now declared to be a pandemic. Italy, for example, has been quarantined, and their businesses shut down.
The US has taken some active measures to limit the spread. The Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, has made a statement about a ban on public gatherings of over 250 people. As a result, many amusement parks and other events have been postponed or canceled – the NBA is among them.
Movies are also affected by the virus
The effects of the virus are widespread, and with the entire world, the entertainment industry has also suffered. Many productions were postponed, such as Mission Impossible 7 and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (coming from Disney +). Also, movie premiere dates have been delayed. A Quiet Place Part II will be released a month after the initial date.
These are the late-night shows that suspended their activity
TV Line announced that Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers would suspend the production of their late-night shows. The original plan was to continue filming with no live audience, but for now, it is safe to cancel the shows. Production is set to halt for the next two weeks. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is also added to this list until the end of March.
Warner Bros. is cautious, as normal
Jeopardy!, at its most recent tapings, used no live audience. Also, Warner Bros. is taking careful precautions when it comes to their sitcoms and talk shows. They made their rules clear: anyone who has traveled to a Level 3 destination in the past three weeks cannot attend the events.
In short, the so-called late-night shows have been suspended due to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
