Show Summary

Emmy-winner Jimmy Kimmel serves as host and executive producer of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," ABC Television Network's distinctive late-night talk show. The show features a diverse line up of guests, including celebrities, athletes, comedians and human interest subjects. Along with a light-hearted and recognizable cast of characters, a hip house band and comedy bits in Kimmel's inimitable style, the show additionally offers one of the funniest, freshest monologues on television today. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" often features elaborate, innovative stunts - such as having Quentin Tarantino guest-direct an entire episode, or building a state of the art performance stage in the center of Hollywood Boulevard. The show originates from Disney's El Capitan Entertainment Center, located on Hollywood Boulevard in the heart of Hollywood's Walk of Fame. This famed location is featured prominently in the show as Kimmel showcases the unique character of Hollywood. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs weeknights at 12:05 a.m. in most markets. Midway through its third year, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" has featured such high profile guests as George Clooney, Britney Spears, Jennifer Garner, Ashton Kutcher, Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Shaquille O'Neal, Clay Aiken, Ryan Seacrest, Jose Canseco, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Lindsay Lohan, Bobby Brown and Hilary Duff -- plus musical guests Coldplay, 50 Cent, Foo Fighters, Blink 182, Jane's Addiction, Toby Keith, Audioslave, Nelly, Motley Crue, No Doubt, Green Day, Barry Manilow, Lionel Richie and Alanis Morissette -- since its premiere on Super Bowl Sunday, January 26, 2003. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is taped later in the day than other late night shows - at 7:45 p.m. PT. This allows the show to respond to the news of the day more quickly than the competition. Kimmel applies his irreverent wit to politics, television, the media, the FCC, popular culture - everything is a target. A weekly comedy segment, "Unneccesary Censorship," pokes fun at the FCC's crackdown on the media by unnecessarily censoring clips from TV news, political speeches, reality TV and nature shows. Other regular comedy segments include Cousin Sal's hidden camera pranks, Guillermo's Hollywood Gossip Round-up and adorably clueless Uncle Frank's coverage of red-carpet premieres.moreless

  • Your show last night brought me to tears, in a Good Way

    10
    I watched your show last night (recorded on DVR) (Tues. 5-19-15) and your choking up during your story about how Dave L. has affected your life and career brought me to tears! I love Dave Letterman forever and have grown to love your show, also. Just the right humor and not being like Fallon (who I think is not funny at all). Thanks so much for the Dave L. tribute and the fact that you are not running a New show tonight proves to me that you are a Class Act! Thank you, Patty Rosemoreless
  • WHile I am at a Letterman review...

    2.0
    Kimmel. Also, tremendously boring. Fantasttically untalented. Why America continues to choose untalented people.... is it any wonder why the US has more foreigners invading their movies than home grown.



    KImmel is just a reflection of the lack of imagination, snarky, mean spirited as a replacement for talent, not interesting TV personalities. How people get to rise to this level is amazing. And an indictment of where we are. A very bored, cynical society. Why not. I am cynical too... but even I cannot stomach Kimmel. What a bore. Which is why he is a fan of Letterman. Makes sense.moreless
  • WTF, Jimmy - Are You SELLING OUT???!!!

    3.0
    I've loved you forever -- UNTIL LATELY. There are now so many advertisements on your show that I'm taping you so I can skip them. One night I counted 16 subsequent ads, including station previews, then you're on for 2 minutes, then there are another 13. Just too freaking boring - I thought you were smarter than that.



    If I'm bored enough, I might try to count all that go on in one show. THEY'RE PUTTING ME TO SLEEP, JIMMY!!!moreless
