The snowy weather in Ireland seems to have depleted all sources - milk, bread, even television audiences.
The audience for The Late Late Show was relatively empty compared to the usual 200+ who sit in the studio.
Due to the country being on status red weather and most of the country's roads blocked up with heavy snow, it was only natural that many people couldn't make it to sit in on Ryan Tubridy's Friday night chat show.
At one point on the show, Tubridy even welcomed in two passersby onto set.
Viewers at home couldn't believe that the Late Late was so quiet, with roughly 30 people in attendance.

It’s a unique night in the 56 year history of the #LateLateShow..
For safety reasons we had to cancel the audience BUT the show must go on.
It’s got that “day off school” vibe in the studio 😀 pic.twitter.com/MAXmG3nrfa

Tubridy just opened a bag of Maltesers and there was one for everyone in the audience. #LateLateShow
