    I figured y'all would have the easy answer: are all the late night network talk shows (Colbert, Cordon, Kimmel, Fallon, and Meyers) on hiatus right now due to the Coronavirus crisis, with reruns being shown? Thanks--

    Yep. AFAIK, all of them stopped production.

    Colbert did a monologue from his bathtub, but then the rest of the show was a repeat.

    I don't even want to imagine that (with all due respect to SC).

    On Comedy Central I see 'The Daily Show' has also gone to reruns.

    My Tivo is still picking up David Spade's show as new, so I hope that's right, as I really enjoy his show, but the guide data is generic so who knows. I'm sad without my David Spade fix.

    Spade has always gone into reruns when the Daily Show has, so I don’t expect Spade will be doing anything new.

    I had heard/read that they all planned to work without audiences starting yesterday.

    Last Thursday Colbert performed before an audience of a couple of handful of workers. It was really weird, the humor didn't hit without audience feedback. (Although the guest segment was good -- a doctor whose name I can't remember.) Colbert may have gotten legit tipsy drinking Bourbon. Rather than doing it again, they played the rehearsal Thursday night.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this awkwardness was why all the LN shows decided to go on hiatus. But it could have been just doing the right thing for the workers.

    Also, I've read that NBC and Netflix stopped production on many scripted shows. I don't know the lead time for these things and if/when we will see a lack of new shows.

    There will come a time in the next couple of months to cancel cable.

    I suspect two big issues came to light:

    1. Guests not wanting to appear, particularly if their appearance would have required travel, or if the movie they were promoting has been postponed.

    2. Allowing the production staff and the crew members to practice social isolation (not making them come into the office/studio) -- that said, I hope those people are still getting paychecks even if the shows aren't being produced.

    Thanks for that info. I scrolled through and did a quick count. Of the network and cable channel shows listed there are 17 shows I watch. Good time to catch up on streaming stuff, I suppose. One good thing about losing your memory is that you can watch stuff you've already seen and still not know most of what happens. :D

    If this carries on a long time it will finally get me to cut cable and go to streaming only.

    Oh man! Maybe this is the thing that causes me to do Twitter - or even, hopefully, be able to figure it out.

    Thanks for the info! :)
