At a time like this, we all have to adapt — even celebrities.

Jimmy Kimmel, for example, is delivering “Quarantine Minilogues” from his crib in Southern California, joking about how he has “nothing to do” and has felt “incarcerated” at times. And suddenly, his blood type is “Disney+” after watching “Frozen 2” over and over with his two young children.

Other late-night hosts are also doing the at-home thing. Stephen Colbert, for one, has produced comedic video segments from his bathtub and alongside his backyard fire pit while sheltering at home.

Unfortunately, the results aren’t always blessed with studio-like quality. During an at-home video featuring Seth Meyers, the NBC host acknowledged that he’s still working out the kinks with sound and video problems.

“Shout out to the YouTubers who have been doing this for a long time,” he said. “You’re making us pros look like real dopes. I tip my cap.”

The pros had better get used to it because, in the coming weeks, TV will rely even more on their homework in the form of three major broadcast specials.

Fox on Wednesday announced that it will air “The iHeart Living Room Concert for America” on Sunday, March 29 (6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET). Hosted by Elton John, it’s a commercial-free hourlong benefit event aimed at providing “entertainment relief and support for Americans to help fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to celebrate the resilience and strength of the nation during this pandemic.”
