Jimmy Kimmel Live Shelves Opening Night of Brooklyn Week

Jimmy Kimmel was planning a triumphant return to Brooklyn, commemorating the Nets debut in the borough later this week. However, Sandy happened, resulting in the cancellation of the first Jimmy Kimmel Live at the Brooklyn Academy of Music tonight.

As late as yesterday, a Kimmel spokesperson said the show would go on, even though there are no buses and subways.

“We are hopeful to be back on the air tomorrow night with Howard Stern, Tracy Morgan, and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.”

Brooklynite Kimmel, 44, grew up in the Mill Basin section of the borough.

FishbowlNY also has a special “Back to Brooklyn” series being delayed until Thursday, the night that the Nets officially unwrap their regular season schedule in Brooklyn.
