Prepare for a classic example of the age old adage of "The show must go on!"
A disaster of less than epic, but still pretty bad, proportions struck the set of Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show yesterday when they were supposed to tape tonight's episode.
The power went out.
If there is one thing necessary to record a TV show it is electricity, electricity followed by a working camera. They had no electricity but they found a camera, a webcam to be exact.
Tonight’s low tech episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs at 12:05 on ABC and was shot entirely by webcam via Kimmel's personal laptop. Everything from the monologue, to the interviews (Including The Green Hornet himself: Seth Rogen!) and even a musical performance by Dierks Bentley.
In all honesty I haven't followed late night since the Conapocalypse, but I am intrigued by both this novelty of watching a late night talk show filmed entirely by webcam and Jimmy Kimmel's MacGuyveresque abilities.
If you are curious on how this whole mess turned into something potentially amazing tune in if you aren't sleeping, I sure as hell am!
