Jimmy Kimmel Live is joining the many New York–based productions that have already shut down operations because of Hurricane Sandy. Kimmel tweeted: "Though it pains us to do it, JKL from #Brooklyn tonight is cancelled. I'm disappointed too, but we want you to be safe." Chris Rock and Kelly Ripa were the scheduled guests. Letterman is still planning on having a show. And that show-off Fallon tweeted: "Everyone in tonight's studio audience gets a free Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream." So much for Leno's evil plan to be the only late-night show on the air.
