Jimmy Kimmel has given ABC's hit series Scandal the slightly-more melodramatic treatment it deserves by turning it into a telenovela. Following the absolutely rabid success of the Shonda Rhimes series — which is currently premiering the world over, gaining and even more ravenous fanbase than before — it makes sense that the perma-viral Jimmy Kimmel Live host would spoof the show's antics. It's just made all-the-more amazing thanks to the cast being involved.
Billy Eichner tends to take the scream approach to delivering his jokes and reactions, which you may have noticed if you’ve been watching Parks and Recreation this season, as the comedian has applied this schtick to his role as Donna’s Eagleton counterpart Craig in the NBC comedy series.
Kanye West showed up on the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to talk about his short-lived feud with the late night host. Apparently, people were interested in what the rapper had to say, because Kimmel crushed in the late night ratings on Wednesday, at least where the advertising demographic is concerned, bringing in a dominant 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo.
"We’re going to try and entertain you the best we can. Which, given our track record, gives you people a 20% chance of having a good time tonight." That's the closest thing Conan O'Brien came to a joke when addressing the attack during the Boston Marathon at the start of his opening monologue during last night's Conan. O'Brien, who is originally from Boston, sent his thoughts and prayers out to the people of Boston and anyone else affected by the senseless act.
Have you been wondering what Psy has been up to lately? Has he been lost amidst a sea of Harlem shaking? Or just lost at sea? Jimmy Kimmel found the Korean singer during his special post-Oscars episode Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aft the Oscars. The "Gangnam Style" rapper starred in his own segment, "Life of Psy," which had him facing off with a very angry tiger. Check it out ahead.
Following Sunday night's broadcast of The Oscars was a special episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, which featured the anticipated trailer for the follow-up to the greatest movie never made, Movie: The Movie. Jessica Chastain stood by Kimmel's side for the suspenseful "preview" for Movie: The Movie 2V, which featured appearances by Bryan Cranston, Bradley Cooper, John Krasinski, Oprah, Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Bruno Mars, and - of course - Matt Damon, along with some other familiar faces.
Jimmy Kimmel is a big fan of viewer participation. He frequently has his producers conduct interviews on Hollywood Boulevard, and now and again, he even directly asks viewers to send in videos on a specific topic to his YouTube channel. Earlier this month, he sent out a notice asking men to give their wives fake Valentine’s Day gifts and tape their reactions.
This Sunday is a big night for movies, with the Academy Awards ceremony set to air, after which ABC will air a special episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. The promo for Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars promises a bevy of movie stars and the debut of the follow-up to last year's viral success Movie: The Movie, fittingly titled, Movie: The Movie, 2V.
Matt Damon took over Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and fans tuned in to watch the shenanigans, earning the series a ratings bump and probably a fair amount of water-cooler- chatter this morning. Damon's appearance on the late night talk show was cause for excitement all by itself, as Kimmel has been humorously bumping the actor from the show due to time for years.
As expected, Matt Damon made his planned appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. That's actually putting it mildly. He didn't just appear. He hijacked the show, wheeling a bound and gagged Jimmy Kimmel out onto the stage and then proceeded to host the star-studded episode on his own. Check out part of his opening monologue ahead.
It happens tonight! January 24 marks the night Matt Damon will finally appear as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Any chance Kimmel will run out of time? On any other night, the answer to that would probably be yes, however, based on this video, it looks like Matt Damon has ensured that he will have the spotlight on tonight's JKL as he's kidnapped the host. Check it out ahead.
It's finally happening. After years of being humorously bumped from the show, Matt Damon is officially booked to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he will face off with his arch-enemy for better or worse. ABC announced today that Damon's appearance on the late night talk show will take place later this month and will be an epic throw down ten years in the making.
Jimmy Kimmel Live continues to improve in the ratings on ABC. Last night’s episode in his new timeslot at 11:35 p.m. ET, where he competes with The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Late Show with David Letterman, was up again in total viewers and actually beat out Letterman and Leno in the coveted 18-49 demographic.
During last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, a spectacular thing happened. David Letterman—whom Kimmel has unabashedly admired throughout his tenure as an interviewer on the airwaves—finally agreed to an interview. Kimmel introduced Letterman by calling the TV veteran, “The main reason I go into television,” before showing the man some awkward fanboy photos from his youth. Last night’s episode was taped at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.
How much do these network shows really matter, in an era when Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are much more likely to dominate public conversation-- and when Conan O'Brien himself has done perfectly fine over on cable, thank you very much. Jimmy Kimmel has made a great name for himself in 10 years of a late night show, but will a bump up to an earlier hour really make a difference?
