‘Daily Show,’ ‘Colbert Report’ Monday episodes cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy

By Daniel S Levine,

Comedy Central’s late night news satire shows The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report are the latest New York-based shows to cancel their Monday episodes because of Hurricane Sandy.

In statements on the shows’ websites, the network confirmed that those who had reserved tickets will receive an email.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Comedy Central will air repeats instead and the status of Tuesday’s episodes have not been determined. John Goodman is scheduled to appear on The Daily Show, while former Senator Al Simpson is scheduled to be the guest on The Colbert Report.

As we previously reported, Jimmy Kimmel had hoped to tape his show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, but a publicist later released a statement noting that the show will not go on as scheduled.

Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman will still film their Monday episodes, but without studio audiences.

Fallon tweeted that he handed out free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to his audience before later sending them home “just to be safe.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, production on 666 Park Avenue, Law & Order: SVU, 30 Rock, Person of Interest and other shows that film in New York have been shut down during the storm.
