With late-night TV productions shut down, and networks airing repeats in their place, some hosts have taken to recording ad hoc monologues from home or remotely to at least give some viewers (and themselves) some comfort during the global pandemic of coronavirus and self-quarantining.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Fallon broadcast from home on Tuesday with his wife behind the camera, and his daughter and dog joining in, sort of:
Jimmy Kimmel Live
Kimmel’s family joined in Tuesday, too, from home.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
Noah and his crew have plenty of videos coming out this week. He began with a PSA, and moved onto comedy from there.
Conan O’Brien has been delivering his own PSAs from home, too.
