The audiences of The Tonight Show, The Late Show, Late Night, and many more will be empty starting next Monday (March 16), THR reports.

“The safety of our guests and employees is our top priority,” NBC shared in a statement. “As a precautionary measure, starting Monday, March 16, we have decided to suspend live audiences for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night With Seth Meyers. Per guidance from New York City officials, the company is hoping to do its part to help to decrease the rate of transmission in our communities. Our shows will continue filming on their regular schedule, and currently, there will be no impact on air dates.”

CBS added in its’ own statement, “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert will film without a live, in-studio audience. This move is being made out of an abundance of caution regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the uncertainty of the situation for future weeks.”

“There have not been any specific developments at The Ed Sullivan Theater to cause concern for audiences with plans to attend the show tonight, tomorrow, or who have attended in recent weeks. For several weeks, the team at the theater has been taking all necessary precautions to protect everyone who enters and works in the theater with enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures.”

'Full Frontal with Samantha Bee' Renewed for Season Five at TBS

We’re getting more Samantha Bee!

TBS has decided to renew Full Frontal with Samantha Bee for an upcoming fifth season, meaning that the politically-oriented show will be going on through the 2020 election.

“I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity to continue doing this show for another season,” Samantha said in a statement via Hollywood Reporter. “Excited to still be at it when Trump finally gives up the presidency at the end of his fifth term, January 2036. I heard he’ll be leaving to spend more time with his family. JK JK.”

Along with the Full Frontal renewal, the WarnerMedia cable network has also renewed a first-look deal with Samantha‘s production company, Swimsuit Competition, which aims to develop projects from creators who are “flying under the radar, or whose work has been underestimated.”

Jimmy Kimmel & Stephen Colbert Roast the Emmys for Not Having a Host

Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert banter back and forth while on stage at the 2019 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 22) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The late night talk hosts presented an award together, but first they roasted the awards show for going on without a host. This is only the fourth time in history that this has happened.

“Well, well, well, how’s the whole ‘no-host’ thing going? What a joke,” Colbert said. Kimmel then replied, “What a dumb idea. So stupid. You know what has a host? Applebee’s has a host.”

“You know who the real victims are here? It’s us,” Colbert said. “Hosting is the only thing we know how to do.” Kimmel added, “I’m sorry, but this show sucks!”

“It’s just sad. Hosts aren’t optional. Without a host, who would read the words, ‘You know my next guest from the hit series NCIS: New Orleans?’” Colbert continued.

Jimmy then replied, “No one would. Without a host, who would sit behind a desk and pretend to be interested in Jason Bateman’s vacation story?”

More late night hosts at the show included Seth Meyers, Samantha Bee, and James Corden. Check out the photos in the category!

FYI: Stephen and Seth are wearing Dolce&Gabbana. Samantha is wearing Hearts on Fire jewelry.
