[ # ] A preview of The Late Show with David Letterman without laughter!
October 29th, 2012 under David Letterman

As I reported The Late Show ain’t going to let a thing like Hurricane Sandy stop them from broadcasting tonight, so the CBS late night talk show is doing the hour without an audience. Here is a preview of what it is like for David Letterman to do his monologue without an audience and more importantly without any laughter. Plus CBS also released a clip of Denzel Washington appearing as a guest on the show at 11:35p. It is so weird to have a guest come out without any applause. I don’t think anyone especially them could imagine the difference. But they didn’t let the silence ruin their enthusiasm and they went on as though all of those seats were filled.
I respect The Late Show staff for going on with the show and not letting Mother Nature ruin their day. But I respect them more for putting the audience’s safety before the show’s needs.
Now I pray that everyone who works on the show either gets home safely or finds a safe place to wait out this Frankenstorm.
Since The Late Show with David Letterman did the show for us, let’s do something for them and watch it tonight on CBS at 11:35p. I am DVRing on all my TVs and I will stay up to watch it live to give it as many viewers at possible. Especially because they are losing a big chunk of viewers thanks to the power outages due to the storm.

UPDATE: David Letterman wasn’t the only one who did his show without an audience, Jimmy Fallon did the same with Late Night that airs on NBC at 12:37a. He did a cold open which was more like a windy one because he braved Hurricane Sandy for the opening. Then he went inside and did his monologue for the staff members that were sitting where the audience would’ve been. Have to say it is a completely different feel than the normal monologue and because of that it turned out really cool.
And just like the staff of The Late Show, I respect the Late Night staff for doing the show and putting the audience’s safety above the show’s.
