Much of the East may have been without electrical power Monday night – as Hurricane Sandy exerted her strength and, in the words of The New York Times, left “a region crippled” – but one thing remained: star power.
NBC’s Late Night host Jimmy Fallon took to 50th Street outside his Rockefeller Center studio in midtown Manhattan right before Sandy hit to record the introduction to his show.
Though he said there would be no live in-studio audience, “All of our guests came,” said Fallon, “which was big for us. We were worried that we weren’t going to get guests, but we got some good ones here.”
