(Newser) – David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon didn't let superstorm Sandy stop them taping their shows yesterday, but there was nobody except crew members around to laugh, Entertainment Weekly reports. Letterman started his show sitting behind his desk in an empty Ed Sullivan Theater while Fallon started his show in the wind and rain outside Rockefeller Center.

The talk shows went ahead, but Sandy shut down all 40 Broadway theaters and the city revoked all outdoor filming permits for yesterday and today, the AP reports. The Daily Show and Colbert Report took yesterday off and dozens of concerts were canceled. Darren Aronofsky's Noah was among the films that halted production. "I take it that the irony of a massive storm holding up the production of Noah is not lost," tweeted actress Emma Watson.

The same audience as usual: crew members, taped applause & canned laughter.
