'One Day at a Time,' 'Jeopardy!' tape without audiences

“One Day at a Time” is the latest TV show to decide to tape episodes temporarily without a studio audience as a precautionary step in the wake of coronavirus concerns, USA TODAY confirmed Tuesday with a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly.

The reboot of Norman Lear’s 1970s sitcom, which premieres on Pop TV March 24 after three seasons on Netflix, has seven episodes of Season 4 remaining to be taped at its Culver City, Calif., set. According to a website that provides audience tickets, the next taping is March 24.   

As concerns about coronavirus continue to affect the entertainment industry, several shows are making changes to their usual protocol regarding studio audiences.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” is one of a number of Warner Bros.-produced shows instituting tighter screening procedures for those hoping to attend tapings. 

In a statement to USA TODAY, Warner Bros. executive Paul McGuire confirmed that shows that shoot in front of studio audiences will step up screening procedures to limit the spread of the virus.
