This recording is the premiere of a Jimmy Kimmel Live! episode, dated October 31, 2012. Technically, this episode is the show for October 30, seeing as it'd still be the broadcast day of 10/30/12 by the time this aired at midnight. Howard Stern and Tracy Morgan were the guests that night, though Morgan's appearance was cut from the tape unfortunately.
The main thing to note about this entry was Hurricane Sandy's presence, not only in the show's discussion but the alert ticker provided by WMDT at the top. While Sandy definitely wasn't the most dangerous storm to threaten our coast, it was definitely the largest. I can remember watching late-night television as the storm tore through our area and it was so strange to see most hosts without an audience. Kimmel kept his audience though, to which Stern disapproves of in the program. I didn't watch this when it aired, however, as I was over on CBS watching Letterman.
I can't really share too much of this broadcast without Disney/ABC running after me, but I thought it'd be a neat addition to the website.
