Already, you’ve seen the likes of late night hosts Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers, and Jimmy Fallon all keep the wheels of their late night empires spinning by getting really creative and taping episodes remotely, often utilizing videos shot on their smartphones or tablets.
Joining them will be Full Frontal with Samantha Bee who had already been taping segments from her home in the woods (and calling it Little Show in the Big Woods) and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver who will be taping remotely from his own home as well. These episodes will air in the usual time slots, Sam Bee on Wednesdays at 10:30PM on TBS and Oliver going on Sundays at 11PM on HBO.
Both are airing this Wednesday and Sunday, respectively, just another sign of a new (hopefully temporary) normal of how TV is made and still brought to us in a somewhat familiar way.
Also, as a silver lining, seeing late night’s host have to incorporate their family into their bits is a bit heartwarming.
