All we can say is, thank God this didn't happen during tomorrow night's show.
Roughly an hour before the laughfest that is Jimmy Kimmel Live! was set to roll tape last night, a power outage cut off the studio's electricity, rendering lights, cameras and mics and made any sense of professional television completely obsolete.
When this happened to Craig Ferguson last year, the cheeky monkey grabbed a flashlight and a generator and carried on. Well, technology has moved on since then. So what did Kimmel do?
