A power outrage hit the set of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Kimmel wasn’t about to let a little thing like a lack of electricity stop his show; so he recorded the program with his laptop’s webcam.

The show’s Hollywood studio lost power Monday night about an hour before ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live was set to begin taping, says Kimmel Live publicist Chelsea Hettrick says. The outage shut down the control room, broadcast transmission center, and the tape operations area.

The show — which featured Seth Rogen, John Henson, and country artist Dierks Bentley — will air on ABC this Wednesday, June 23 @ 12:05 AM.

No word on what caused the power outage
