LOS ANGELES — Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t going to let a little power outage stop the taping of his show.

Show publicist Chelsea Hettrick says the lights went out Monday night about an hour before ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was set to begin taping.

She says the outage shut down the control room, broadcast transmission centre and tape operations area.

Hettrick says as guests and a studio audience waited, Kimmel grabbed his laptop and recorded the entire show with his computer’s webcam.

Hettrick says guests Seth Rogen, John Henson and country artist Dierks Bentley were very accommodating in “going with what happened.”

There’s no word on what caused the outage.  The show will be broadcast on ABC Wednesday at 12:05 a.m. ET.
