Letterman Producer Rob Burnett on Doing the Show without an Audience

"Ultimately we made the decision that in times of crisis, television tends to continue. We thought, well, there will be news channels on, there will be reporters running around, we should be able to do a show. And in light of everything else that's going on, maybe it will be a nice alternative for people who have had their fill of watching reporters in slickers in the rain."

- 'Late Show' producer Rob Burnett to TV Guide about the hurricane-inspired decision to have David Letterman go on the air without an audience the past two nights.
