Late night television shows were among the first productions to shut down once the spread of coronavirus became more threatening this month. That’s mostly because the shows are shot with a live television audience. Initially, some of the shows attempted to stick it out by shooting episodes without a crowd, but eventually entire productions had to be shut down out of an abundance of caution. However, fans will now have some of their late night fixes back in action, albeit with some social distancing changes.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will be returning to Comedy Central this week after delivering a couple digital editions of the program under the new moniker The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah. Furthermore, Late Night with Seth Meyers will be making a bit of a comeback by doing digital editions of the show’s signature “A Closer Look” segment from the comedian’s home. They join Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O’Brien, who have been keeping their shows alive with snippets of new segments uploaded to YouTube in the days since their shows were shut down.
