On Monday, the popular game shows Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune said they would begin taping without studio audiences in response to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. A person close to the shows says that the move is “being taken out of an abundance of caution.” The shows are taped months in advance at a studio in Culver City, California, so it’ll be a while before the unattended shows air.

Last week, CBS announced that it was suspending production on The Amazing Race in response to the potentially deadly virus.
