The other day Variety said in the title of their article with an interview of Jimmy Kimmel that he was thinking of retiring in 3 years when his contract is up at ABC. Today, Ellen DeGeneres asked him about on her daytime talk show and he said that was a big misunderstanding. He explained what happened, “I did an interview and the guy asked me ‘Do you ever think of about, like, retiring?’ And I said, ‘I still have 3 years left on my contract until 2020 and who knows at the end of that maybe I.’ I definitely didn’t say I was retiring.”
Then the internet went crazy and said that he was. He was touched by all the people who care about him, but then the next articles were who could replace him. The late night host said there were some really good suggestions and maybe ABC should consider them. He was joking, but do you think he should consider it?
Jimmy Kimmel has been hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live for 14 years now, making him the longest running late night host on broadcast television. He recently sat down with Variety and told them he has an end date in sight. The ABC late night host said, “I know I will do the show for another three years (his contract expires in 2019),” adding, “It’s possible that will be it. My wife’s pregnant. At a certain point, I’d like to have a little more free time. I have very little free time as it is.”
He says he spends 70 hours working on the show a week rewriting the monologue and researching guests. Thus, you can’t blame him for wanting to spend more time with his 2 year old daughter Jane and his future child. Although, since his wife is his the co-head writer, can they afford to both be out of work?
When it comes to ABC letting him go, I wouldn’t be surprised if they wanted to change things up. Now that Stephen Colbert has seen an upswing in viewers after the inauguration, Jimmy Fallon is still leading the 11:35p hour and Kimmel has stayed in last place, it wouldn’t be shocking if they decided to try something new. Even though he made viral videos a thing with late night TV, Fallon and Corden now own the market. ABC has a lot of people who could fill his shoes, so would you be surprised if they went shoe shopping?
Granted, that could all change if ABC sees a huge ratings increase with the Oscars this Sunday, but with most of the nominees barely being seen by the average movie goer, I doubt it. I wish him luck with that.
Jimmy Kimmel’s wife is 28 weeks pregnant and turns out the ABC late night host might not be the father.
We know that Matt Damon was f*cking Sarah Silverman when she was dating Kimmel, and now it turns out that the actor is doing the same thing to his wife Molly. That means he could be the baby daddy. Is he? There is only way to solve this problem and that is to ask Maury Povich, who’s the father?
Is it Matt Damon or Jimmy Kimmel? They are not the father. Why? As Molly said, “How can either of you satisfy me when all you really want is each other?” Even Ben Affleck knew that because it really is obvious. What wasn’t obvious is who really is the father. Someone I would let put a baby in my belly. Wouldn’t you?
Jimmy Kimmel has done many sadistic things throughout the years, like having parents telling their kids that they ate all of their Halloween candy the next morning. Yesterday, on his ABC late night show, he might’ve done his most sadistic thing ever.
Anyone who has someone in their life who plays with Legos, knows the pain of stepping on one of those things barefoot. Your body contorts in pain and you say a lot of 4-letter words that are not Lego.
Well, Will Arnett is starring as Lego Batman in the movie of the same title and Kimmel came up with an interesting thing for him to do on Jimmy Kimmel Live. He asked the actor with a sexy voice to walk on 12′ of Legos barefoot. How did it go? I winced in pain just watching him. Yet, I was oddly turned on because I love pain. Pain is something he was definitely experiencing. Although, the the plastic blocks he walked one were not the little ones they have now. Those things can make the most macho man cry like a little girl.
