As you may have noticed from either looking at the news… or looking out your windows if you live in the Northeast, a good portion of the US population is getting pounded by Hurricane Sandy. While most businesses have closed up shop and the trains have stopped running, at least late night television is still chugging along… even if they are doing it without their audiences.

The result was sort of a weird surreal version of late night television that will hopefully never happen again.
