Late night hosts release videos from home during coronavirus isolation

As the threat of the coronavirus continues to spread, now showing up in all 50 states, more and more people have decided to self-quarantine, and late night hosts are no different. Last Thursday, as Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon filmed in near-empty studios with no audiences, an eerie and awkward feeling was pervasive as the seriousness of the coronavirus continued to become more clear. It was the same on Jimmy Kimmel Live as former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg guest hosted. All three shows announced they would be suspending production for the time being. But entertainers gotta entertain, and Colbert, Kimmel and Fallon have all begun posting short “shows” they recorded at home. Colbert got the ball rolling Monday night, delivering a monologue from his bathtub while wearing a suit, and Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon posted videos on Tuesday.
