WATCH: Colbert Staff Took Time Out to Watch the Eclipse

It turns out Jimmy Fallon wasn’t the only late-night host who took to the roof to watch the solar eclipse earlier this week.

In a new behind the scenes clip posted to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s Instagram account, Colbert and team are seen taking in the eclipse from the rooftop of the Ed Sullivan Theatre building, and on the street outside their studio doors.

Colbert is seen remarking on the crescent shaped shadows cast by the eclipse, while his dog Benny chews on a pair of solar glasses. As Colbert explained in his monologue Monday, the show changed its schedule so that the staff could bear withness to the once-in-forty years event.

While Colbert and team took in the eclipse on 53rd street, just a few blocks east Jimmy Fallon was rocking out with Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart.

Fallon opened his show with a message to viewers: “We have a special show tonight: Heart is our musical guest, and obviously today is the solar eclipse. So we thought we have to do what we have to do. We have to sing ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ with Heart, while watching the solar eclipse.”
