Here's How Late-Night Shows Are Broadcasting From Home In The Midst Of The Coronavirus Outbreak

If Stephen Colbert's bathtub monologue shows us anything, it's that late-night hosts know how to get creative.

On Monday night, The Late Show was the first of the late-night talk shows to record new episodes while social distancing, with Stephen Colbert giving us a full monologue from his bathtub.

In it, he lectured us about the importance of "flattening the curve" by social distancing...

...and we were given this "Lather Show With Scrubbin' Colbath" visual for good measure.

In his first monologue of the week, we got a glimpse of a room inside Jimmy's home.

Maybe it's an office? A bedroom?

He gave advice to everyone on how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day at home...

Fun fact: Jimmy's wife, Nancy, served as the camera operator for this and recorded this monologue herself.

In it, Jimmy sang a song about being quarantined during St. Patrick's Day and announced that he'll be highlighting a different charity each night on his show.
