Late Night Hosts Join Forces For A Massive Fundraiser
ABC, NBC, and CBS's top late-night stars will host this historic event.
The rivalry and rating battle between late night TV talk shows has long meant that hosts rarely appear on the same shows together. However, with the current situation in the US, the three major networks--ABC, NBC, and CBS--have put their differences aside for a night to jointly produce a historic fundraising show.
On Saturday, April 10, airing from 8 PM-10 PM ET/PT, the networks will air One World: Together at Home, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, And Stephen Colbert, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The event will raise funds for the fight against COVID-19. The show will feature acts from music, sports, comedy and more, alongside interviews with WHO.
Scheduled to appear on the show is Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong, Burna Boy, Chris Martin, David Beckham, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, FINNEAS, Idris and Sabrina Elba, J Balvin, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Maluma, Paul McCartney, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan, and Stevie Wonder.
Aside from entertaining the masses, the show will educate the public about prevention of COVID-19 and the risks of it as well. They will also hear stories from health care workers on the front lines of this pandemic in order to paint a broader, global picture, as we're all in this together.
Like the One World: Together at Home special, other studios, app developers, and more are working on ways to keep being at home interesting. The Chrome extension Netflix Party allows people to watch Netflix programming together and chat. There are free trials of services like CBS All Access, Shudder, and Sling. HBO is offering some of its best shows to stream for free, and Amazon is hosting an event in April featuring movies from the cancelled SXSW festival that is free to everyone.
