After almost 10 years of Jimmy Kimmel not having time for Matt Damon on his ABC late night show, he will finally have Jason Bourne on Jimmy Kimmel Live! at 11:35p this January 24th. I guess now that Kimmel is on earlier, it not past Damon’s bed time so he is able to stay up and do the show that beat Leno and Letterman in the key demo yesterday on its third night in its new timeslot.
So now that he has time now for the man he didn’t have time for, how will Jimmy Kimmel end his show every night starting on January 25th? He told me today, “I don’t know. We will probably the continue the same nonsense. I’d think Matt would be disappointed if we drop him. He’s become a part of the show” Then he added, “He almost become a good luck charm for us.”
Well in less than two weeks we will see if Kimmel’s good luck charm is still that after he finally sits down with Damon, the man that has been the show’s joke for almost a whole decade.
