Hurricane Sandy hasn’t bested every late night Jimmy.

Earlier today, Jimmy Kimmel Live announced that it was canceling tonight’s show, which was to be taped at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, on account of the storm that’s raging across the East Coast. But Kimmel’s rival Jimmy Fallon still plans to tape tonight’s Late Night no matter what — even if he has to do it without his customary live audience.

“Midtown NYC is empty, but we are still doing a live show!” Fallon tweeted this morning, attaching a photo of a barren Manhattan avenue. He followed that message with a promise to give every member of tonight’s audience a free pint of Ben & Jerry’s before revealing that he’d have no live spectators after all: “We sent our audience home just to be safe,” he explained via Twitter this afternoon. “But we are doing our show tonight anyway. Should be fun.”

SNL‘s Seth Meyers, Top Chef‘s Padma Lakshmi, and the band Imagine Dragons will all appear on Late Night tonight.
