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?
Jimmy Kimmel's YouTube Challenges have made for some pretty great television (and viral video). In the past, he's had parents pranking their kids with bad Christmas presents and chewed up food. But the tables were turned in honor of Father's Day when he challenged kids to spray their dads with the hose. Jimmy Kimmel Live put together a best-of video with the results.
Last week, Jimmy Kimmel issued his latest YouTube challenge, just in time for April Fool’s Day. Inspired by the video of Alicia Silverstone shown chewing up food and feeding it from her mouth to her baby’s, Kimmel invited parents to present their children with “chewed up” food and film their reactions.
Jimmy Kimmel is up to no good again. In anticipation of April Fool’s Day, and inspired by the recent video of Alicia Silverstone feeding pre-chewed food to her child from her mouth, Kimmel has asked Jimmy Kimmel Live viewers to videotape their children’s reactions to being presented with chewed up food. Check out his request ahead.
This is so meta your head may actually split apart while reading this story. Last month Jimmy Kimmel's fake trailer for Movie: The Movie poked fun at just about every genre and overdone convention of movie trailers you can think of. Now Movie: The Movie has swallowed its own tail and is appearing in front of actual movies on nearly 6,000 screens across the nation.
Last night’s special post-Academy Award episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live featured a very special appearance by none other than Oprah Winfrey herself. In addition to sitting with Kimmel for an interview, Winfrey showed off her sense of humor by participating in a segment, which has Kimmel pitching various Oprah-esque ideas to her for her network OWN.
After the hit and miss big ceremony, hosted by Billy Crystal, came the now annual post-Oscars Jimmy Kimmel Live special. And this year was especially special because the host got the chance to premiere a trailer for his upcoming movie, Movie: The Movie starring just about every actor you could imagine, including several Academy Award winners and nominees.
Jimmy Kimmel Live is the best late night show on television and definitely the best late night show on the internet. Kimmel is one of maybe few hosts, Jimmy Fallon, Conan and Jon Stewart being the others, that actual understands and makes great use of the endless potential of online audiences. This week, one of the horribly out of touch hosts, Jay Leno, decided to take a shot at Kimmel on The Tonight Show and thanks to Kimmel's prolific uploads, we can relive his retaliation over and over.
Last December, he had parents giving their kids disappointing Christmas gifts and recording their reactions. Most recently, he challenged viewers to unplug the TV in the middle of a crucial moment during Sunday’s Super Bowl Game. Of course, people did it and last night, some of the reactions were aired during Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Jimmy Kimmel Live has the best online presence of any of the late-night talk show hosts. It's no coincidence that he's become such a big hit online because his sketches and skits are perfectly suited for the virality of the internet. We've already shared a few of his more popular and hilarious videos but this one might take the cake. Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman plus MTV's The Jersey Shore equals priceless.
