The team at “The Late Late Show with James Corden” will include James Corden sitting in his garage video chatting with some of the “biggest names in music and entertainment.” Everyone will be featured in their own homes on a video call. “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is going down the same path and they are also continuing their production via video calls. By doing this, it not only keeps the hosts and the celebrities safe, but it also ensures the safety of the live studio audience. The Los Angeles based shows that have opted to go without in-studio audiences include: NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night With Seth Meyers, CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, TBS’ Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, HBO’s Last Week Tonight, and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
Almost every talk show has free admission to be included in the live-studio audience. Those who planned on attending a show will not need a refund because they simply did not have to pay in the first place. They will be sacrificing their reserved seats, however, this will not be a conflict of interest since no one is able to attend the show.
