Every year, Jimmy Kimmel asks parents to lie to their children, telling them they ate all of the Halloween candy. Jimmy Kimmel Live! then sifts through the kid’s reactions to bring us a few moments that are priceless, and more than a few that are not so priceless, but are pretty darn funny.
There was a mini Friends reunion on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, with Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow reprising their sitcom roles for a bit of Kimmel’s fan fiction.
Cersei Lannister has a real way with words. The woman knows how to deliver a biting remark, and that's as much a credit to Game of Thrones' writing and source material as it is to Lena Headey's timing and line delivery. Everything from the accent to the facial expressions to the inflection combines for some truly great Cersei moments in the HBO series...
As you can probably imagine, Game of Thrones' Hodor would be pretty terrible at Family Feud. Ok, in truth, Hodor would probably be bad at any game show that didn't involve all the answers being "Hodor," the one word he ever speaks. But it's still especially funny watching him come up with straight-0s in the final round of Family Feud, as presented to us by Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Major spoilers if you aren't caught up on Scandal through last night's Season 3 finale! Jimmy Kimmel took Scandal fans "Behind the Scandalabra" with a Scandal post-finale special featuring Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, who dished the dirt on some of the decisions made this season. For example, did you know Jake was almost made Fitz's new Vice President?
When the Hound wants chicken, he gets chicken. In fact, he can have every f**king chicken in this room, according to Jimmy Kimmel's funny KFC ad, which ties footage from the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere with KFC footage, turning Sandor Clegane's threatening words to Polliver into a mouth-watering ad for chicken and side dishes. Someone's going to die for those chickens.
Well, we knew we were in store for many a more True Detective parodies, didn’t we? Considering the vice-like grip on current popular culture the divisive and exciting HBO series was during its brief, 8-week stint, it was inevitable. With characters — and we mean characters — like Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson at the helm, so easy to parody as they are, the Nic Pizzolatto series was ripe for potential parody. So, naturally, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Rogen decided to take a stab at it.
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?

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.
