Thanksgiving has been around since 1621 and turns out Black Friday is just as old. Yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ABC late night show had kids reenact the story of the first one and it was a true Grimm fairy tale. Even though the tale is as black as the holiday, I would love to see this play performed every year at schools all over America. Maybe we can learn from our past. Who am I kidding? We won’t, but at least we enjoy watching as our past comes back to haunt us.
A few weeks ago, Harrison Ford was on Jimmy Kimmel Live and I was surprised by how awful the ABC late host was during their interview. Hans Solo has a very dry sense of humor, so you never know if he is serious or not. But when their chat got serious as Ford talked about his plane crash, Kimmel tried to make jokes about it that came off as crude, disrespectful and idiotic. I was disgusted by it, and I was shocked that Ford didn’t say something to him.
Well weeks later, while the Star Wars new comers were on JKL yesterday, Ford finally got his say in a bit with Chewbacca. The Wookie and Hans have been fighting, and Chewie was so upset about it, he was going to jump off of Kimmel’s studios. Hans decides to make up with his friend and that convinces him not to jump. As they are hugging, Kimmel belts out the Star Wars theme and that’s when Ford tells him to STFU. I applauded because it was about time he said those 4 words to him.
Now if only someone could get Kimmel to shave off that pitiful beard things would be better in the late night world.
Rob Lowe is starring in The Grinder on Fox and he just discovered there is an App where men who love the show can meet up on Tuesday nights to watch it together. That App is called Grindr; and yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Lowe showed us how it works. Men can just download it, swipe to see all the available men in the area, and finally click on the one they want to watch the sitcom with. Once he has selected the one that he wants, he just has to wait for him to knock on his door. Once he does that is when the real magic happens. It is 30 minutes of passion, they will never forget. Until the next episode of The Grinder.
Yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, they had one of their focus group with kids and they wanted to know what the 4 youngsters thought of having a woman President. The two girls were more for it than the boys, but would that change when Hillary Clinton entered the room. Even though only one of them knew that Barack (Orack) Obama was the President of the United States, three of them knew who the former First Lady is. Which is actually really impressive, to me.
Now that we know that they know who she, what would she have to do to get their vote. Since they are kids, they want free things and no school. Will she add that to her campaign promises? If she is going for the under 10s, she will; but I don’t think that is her target audience.
So now that the kids listened to her and she listened to them, would they vote for a woman President? Three out of four of them would. Which is not bad, not bad at all.
Now for the nonpolitical part of this bit, the best part is when one of the kids called the ABC late night host fat. Little by little they are getting their revenge! Good for them.
Country music might have produced some of the saddest songs, but that doesn’t mean their singers don’t have great sense of humor. Yesterday, Jimmy Kimmel Live had some of them read their Mean Tweets and almost all of them were laughing at what was being said about them. In fact, Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox was in tears he was laughing so hard.
I love when people can laugh about themselves, it says a lot about them. All good thing! If you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?
For years. Jimmy Kimmel has used his show to torture strangers, mainly innocent children, and yesterday someone finally got to torture him.
Recently, he made a bet with Eric Stonestreet over which of their home teams would win the World Series. The ABC host was hoping our Mets would bring home the trophy and the Modern Family star was wishing the same for his Kansas City Royals. After 6 games, that title went to the Royals and the loss went to Kimmel. What did that mean for him? It meant that he was going to have to dodge paintballs being shot at him while he was in a Bouncy House for :30 second.
Yesterday, Stonestreet brought three of this year’s World Series winners with him and they came to collect on the bet. For half a minute, Kimmel endured being shot at by 5 paintball guns because Seth Rogen and Guillermo joined in on the firing squad. When the time was up, Jimmy looked like a modern art painting. The best part was someone nailed him right in the crotch! That would’ve hurt more if he wasn’t wearing a cup, but sadly he was.
So to the thousands of kids who had their Halloweens ruined because of Kimmel, I hope you enjoyed this treat. I know I did. I never thought anything positive could’ve come out of The New York Mets losing, but now there was something. That something was this.
Every year since 2011, Jimmy Kimmel has asked parents to tell their kids on November 1st that ate all of their Halloween candy while they were sleeping, and they did. We’ve seen kids cry, yell, throw temper tantrums and even a few who told their parents that it was OK. This year was a little different because we saw a lot, and I do mean a lot, of tears and even a few kids faint. Which truly breaks your heart as you watch their hearts break. Even though it does, it is hard not to watch this awwwwwdorable video all the way through several times in a row.

You can sometimes judge a political candidate by the celebrities that endorse him or her and Donald Trump’s say a lot about him. Jimmy Kimmel Live revealed who they are in a brand new political ad and they are Dennis Rodman, Charlie Sheen, Hulk Hogan, Tila Tequila, Mike Tyson, Wayne Newton, Stephen Baldwin and Gary Busey. If that doesn’t speak volumes, I don’t know what does.
We have all seen Back to the Future 2. We remember Doc Brown and Marty McFly arriving on October 21, 2015 in Hill Valley. Well, turns out they also arrived on that date in Brooklyn, NY on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The ABC late night host was able to tell them how the 2015 we know is different than one they know. Leading McFly to admit our version sucks.
Doc Brown agreed and went back to 1985 correct his wrong. Before he left, Kimmel asked him how he is going to die. Brown told him, he will die next week by the hands of angry children who are mad at him for having their parents take their Halloween candy away. Something I don’t think you have to have a time machine to know is coming.
Jimmy Kimmel is in NYC this week and Tracy Morgan decided to give him a tour of The Bronx Zoo. Morgan picked that place because he recently bought it. The comedian was able to give them more information than any tour guide as they visited my favorite Bronx landmark.
At the end of the tour, Morgan revealed he’s trying to get some more giraffes at his zoo. He’s doing that by giving them some wine and singing Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get It On to them. Once he started belting out the love making tune, that is exactly what they did. Not only were the giraffes doing it but a bunch of other animals there did it too. Proving that not only can Morgan put a baby in a woman’s belly, but he can also put babies in all female species bellies. Way to go, Tracy!
