NEW YORK, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- New York-based TV talk show hosts said their live audiences would be back Tuesday night.

"Late Show with David Letterman" on CBS and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on NBC were broadcast Monday from almost empty theaters. Many of Letterman's crew were unable to get to the studio and his "Top 10" was handwritten on poster board. Guest Denzel Washington arrived wearing a yellow rain slicker.

ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" was to have been taped all week in the Harvey Theater at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Hollywood Reporter said. Monday's show was canceled, but producers said they expected to get back on track Tuesday with a guest lineup including Howard Stern and Tracy Morgan.

Kimmel, a native of Brooklyn, is based in Los Angeles. His guest list for the week includes Letterman and Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, who both canceled their shows Monday.
