Despite that Hurricane Sandy is about to wreak havoc on the East Coast, he's still planning to film his late night show in the borough starting Oct. 29.

A rep for the show tells Entertainment Weekly, "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 week's schedule of guests includes Chris Rock, Kelly Ripa, Alicia Keys, Howard Stern, Tracy Morgan, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, David Letterman, Vampire Weekend, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and the Avett Brothers featuring the Brooklyn Philharmonic.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered subway service in the city to be shut down starting at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28.

In addition, production has been halted on the NYC-based sets of "The Good Wife," "Blue Bloods," "Elementary," "666 Park Avenue," "The Carrie Diaries," "The Following," "Golden Boy," "Gossip Girl," "Person of Interest" and the pilot "The Secret Lives of Wives," confirms Hollywood.com. There's no word on whether the shutdown will affect air dates at all.
