What a strange start to 2020.  It's safe to say, we all have to go about doing things differently in the age of social distancing and the COVID-19 pandemic.  Concerts are being cancelled or postponed, restaurants are take-out or delivery only and the thought of sitting in a theater next to someone has been put on hold for the time being.

That's last one has been a problem for all of the late night shows which all have studio audiences.  The Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and even Conan are finding new ways to stay connected and deliver content while their shows are on standby.  Here's a taste of what each has been delivering online this week.

I think it's pretty amazing how we have been able to pretty quickly adapt to all these life disruptions.  In scary and anxious times, we all need to laugh.  I'm glad to see these guys have found a way to stay connected.
