As the East Coast braces for Hurricane Sandy, the tropical storm has affected several TV shows shooting in New York City. CBS dramas such as Elementary, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, Person of Interest, and the midseason show Golden Boy suspended production for Monday and Tuesday due to the storm. Studio stages are not expected to be affected by the storm, although the city has pulled all outdoor filming permits.
Sandy has also affected a number of talk shows as well. Jimmy Kimmel Live, which is normally filmed in Hollywood, was forced to cancel his first of five live shows in Brooklyn today. Comedy Central will also air repeats of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
CBS' Late Show with David Letterman and NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will both be taping tonight's programs without an audience. New York City has shut down the mass transit system in lieu of the storm, which makes it very difficult for these programs to get audiences to the tapings.
CBS is also airing repeats tonight, since many East Coast stations will likely air extensive weather coverage. ABC and NBC will air new originals as planned, with Fox airing a repeat of The X Factor.
