Where to Watch All Your Favorite Late-Night Shows Right Now
Between Stephen Colbert chilling in a bathtub and Jimmy Fallon goofing around with his daughters, late-night television has become a Wild West under shelter-in-place directives. Sure, production is being conducted via iPhones and Zoom calls, but silly chats and bits are now more welcome than ever. That said, there's been uncertainty around when and where to watch new late-night content since in-studio production shut down in mid-March. Some shows have been regularly uploading content onto YouTube, where they post fundraisers with organizations to help frontline workers and food banks. Others have already returned to the air, with hosts filming from their homes and chatting with guests by video call. To curb the confusion, we've rounded up the latest updates on where to watch all of your favorite late-night TV personalities.
Jimmy Kimmel Live!
In mid-March, ABC moved Nightline, which exclusively covered the coronavirus, to Jimmy Kimmel Live's 11:35 p.m. slot. Starting Monday, April 13, the show will air original episodes in a 30-minute format in its original slot, followed by Nightline's coronavirus updates. Kimmel has been producing his show remotely on YouTube and his site, interviewing celebrities and organizing bits like Samuel L. Jackson's "Stay the F**k at Home" reading.
The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
On Monday, March 30, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert returned to CBS in its original airtime of 11:35 p.m. with original full-hour episodes conducted remotely. Stephen Colbert was one of the first late-night hosts to start posting videos on YouTube, bringing his fanbase a little bit of levity by delivering his monologue from his bathtub.
The Late Late Show With James Corden
The latest episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden aired on March 12, with new installations returning to CBS from Corden's garage starting Monday, April 13. Recently, Corden threw together a special #HomeFest concert with celebrities such as Billie Eilish, John Legend, and BTS. You can see clips on his site and YouTube.
The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon
NBC suspended production of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon in mid-March, but the show returned to air on Monday, March 23, with hybrids of past episodes and clips of the At Home Edition, which Fallon had been filming at home and posting on YouTube. So far, Fallon has interviewed everyone from Miley Cyrus to Adam Sandler, with the occasional welcome interruption from his children.
Late Night With Seth Meyers
Meyers has been remotely recording episodes from little nooks of his home and posting them on YouTube, finally settling in a crawl space in his attic. His show returned to NBC on Monday, March 30, and he's been interviewing everyone from Bernie Sanders to Martha Stewart — in addition to leading segments like "A Closer Look."
A Little Late With Lilly Singh
Conan had been on a pre-planned hiatus starting March 16, but the show promptly returned to TBS with new episodes on Monday, March 30, via remote production. Conan O'Brien had still been filming funny shorts on his YouTube channel, though, uploading bits such as a guide to creating hand sanitizer.
