Jimmy Kimmel Kicks Off His Brooklyn Shows A Day Late Due To Hurricane Sandy (VIDEO)

Though Sandy pushed him back by a day, Jimmy Kimmel was able to kick off his week in Brooklyn on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" with Tuesday night's episode. Kimmel grew up in Brooklyn, so he took Guillermo back to the street he grew up on, and even showed off childhood pictures.

Kimmel got a standing ovation from his hometown crowd for nearly a full minute. "Tonight I have returned to save my people from the storm," he quipped. "A lot has changed since I lived in Brooklyn, for instance, the last time I was here I don’t remember a hurricane trying to murder me."

Kimmel and his people were saying until nearly the last minute that his Monday night show would go on -- they even had backup generators to keep things moving if the storm knocked out the power. But as Sandy drew closer, he finally pulled the plug.

Other late night talk shows like "Late Show" and "Late Night" went on without audiences. Things are slowly getting back to normal, though, in the late-night world. Fallon's audience was back, though Letterman went without for a second night.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" continues in Brooklyn for the week, and airs every weeknight at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
