As announced in the NY Times last week, we're ecstatic to share that tonight, seven of TV's most popular talk shows are coming together in support of Climate Week NYC.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Seth Meyers on NBC, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show With James Corden on CBS; Full Frontal With Samantha Bee on TBS; Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC; and The Daily Show With Trevor Noah on Comedy Central are all participating in Climate Night.
Latest news: Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen joins the list of US TV shows for Climate Night.
Climate Night takes place this evening, on Wednesday September 22, to coincide with Climate Week NYC, our week long summit which kicked-off on Monday with our Opening Ceremony. For Climate Night, each US show will produce their own original content that focuses on climate change.
Climate Night was created by former "Daily Show" and "Patriot Act" showrunner Steve Bodow:
“Climate change, obviously, is something we’re all dealing with,” he said. “We’re all talking about it. We all need to be talking about it. What if these shows all talked about it at once? It makes a statement that they’re all willing to do this.” - Quote as seen in the NY Times
Samantha Bee said: "I'm thrilled to participate in 'Climate Night, but maybe we should move it up a few days? Just because, you know, it's urgent?" - Quote as seen in CNN entertainment
With millions of viewers across the seven shows, we are excited that the conversation on climate will be watched and engaged with globally.
