If all non-solar-system stars ceased to exist, how would things look different to us on earth? Would anything change?

Imagine if all stars that did not have planets orbiting them suddenly blinked out. (That means our sun is safe.) How many stars would blink out? Would the sky be twice as dark at night? Almost completely dark? Would it effect anything on Earth as we know it?
A kid asked me this on the train today, as I was reading a book with the solar system on the cover. My mind was blown by a six year old.
