Amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, everyone is trying to adapt, and popular TV show hosts are doing it in style.


Sequel to the advice from government officials and medical professionals, people around the world are practicing social distancing and self-isolation to help curb the spread of the currently very contagious coronavirus.

TV show hosts Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, have all come up with impressive ideas to keep their viewers entertained from the comfort of their homes. 



Jimmy tagged his short clip a “minilogue.” The 52-year-old’s minilogue started out with his daughter flashing cute drawings and singing the usual “Jimmy Kimmel Live” theme song.

Soon after, Jimmy can be seen sitting in his office wearing a green shirt and a green top in the spirit of St. Patrick's day.

Jimmy joked about life in isolation, stating that he just found out that he had 2 kids, and they have made him watch “Frozen 2” more times than the animators of the movie. He further stated that they had run out of snacks and crafts to engage in at home.

“We've run out of snacks. We've run out of crafts to do. We made macaroni necklaces yesterday. Today I ate them for lunch. That's how bad it's getting."



Stephen got really creative with his latest edition of the “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” or as he called it, “The Lather show.” It starts out with Stephen hiding behind a huge mass of lather in a bathtub. Stephen can be heard humming his intro before instantly revealing himself donned in a suit laying in the bathtub.

Stephen went ahead to call his suit his bathing suit, and joked about an upcoming musical performance from his shampoo. Stephen gave his viewers some words of comfort saying:

"I'm sure a lot of you are worried. But if you're watching this from home right now, know that you're doing the right thing."


Stephen still took some time out of his “Lather” show to address a few issues and shade the Knicks basketball team.


Jimmy Fallon’s video was filled with a lot of gist from Jimmy about how things were going at home; his daughter and his dog also made appearances. Jimmy later gave a special rendition to a song he wrote for St Patrick’s day. Wearing a green sweater and stringing a guitar, Jimmy seemed to be having fun with his funny song,  


Conan O’Brien also had a funny hand washing tutorial in his monologue; he jokingly washed his hands with some cereal and wished viewers a happy St Patrick’s day.
