David Letterman Show Goes On Despite Hurricane Sandy

David Letterman hosted his chat show from an empty New York theatre without an audience for a second day following Hurricane Sandy.

The CBS host described the Ed Sullivan Theater as a "big ol' empty barn".

When band leader Paul Schafer asked Letterman how they were supposed to approach such an awkward situation, he replied: "Just like every night: We pretend the audience isn't here."
