While most of us mere mortals are cowering at the very idea of Hurricane Sandy, Jimmy Kimmel and his producers are throwing caution to the wind. Jimmy Kimmel Live said it won't alter its plans to film this week at the Brooklyn Academy of Music starting on Monday—even though the city is shutting down its mass transit system. The cast and crew are flying to New York early, and the show is bringing in backup generators in case of a power failure. A rep for the show says they haven't had any audience members back out yet. Chris Rock, Kelly Ripa, and Stephen Colbert are scheduled as guests.
