    Even more of a bummer—Focus Features suspended Tuesday night's New York City premiere of Keira Knightley's Anna Karenina, an Oscar hopeful.

    Also put on hold are Warner Bros. Television productions 666 Park Avenue, The Carrie Diaries, The Following, Golden Boy, Gossip Girl and Person of Interest, as well as the pilot The Secret Lives of Wives.

    A rep for Warners productions tells E! News: "We are suspending production on our New York-based series and pilot on Monday due to weather. Production status beyond Monday will be evaluated as additional information becomes available."

    However, Frankenstorm can't stop the funny force that is Jimmy Kimmel.

    The late night host's continuing with the scheduled production of Jimmy Kimmel Live! at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, with guests like Howard Stern, Tracy MorganDavid LettermanJon Stewart and Stephen Colbert due. 

    A rep for the show tells EW: "We are bringing in back-up generators and will be able to do our show in the event of a power failure...We are also flying staff and crew out earlier to beat the storm. We have had no audience drop-outs so far despite news of the storm." 

    The show must go on. At least this one must.
