Did the ABC affil in Dallas mean to cut away from Jimmy Kimmel Live’s monologue?

Jimmy Kimmel has been a very vocal opponent of guns. Therefore, he has been using his platform to speak out against them, especially after Monday’s horrific shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

So yesterday, when WFFA, the Dallas ABC affiliate, cut away from his monologue, fans of the talk show wondered what happened.

When word got back to Kimmel, he responded to the fans on Twitter, “To my friends in Dallas who are asking: I do not know whether our @ABCNetwork affiliate @wfaa cut away from my monologue tonight intentionally or inadvertently but I will find out.”

This morning WFAA apologized for the technical difficulties and explained what happened.
“WFAA extended its Wednesday 10 p.m. newscast for important coverage of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas,” the station wrote. “Jimmy Kimmel Live! aired immediately following our newscast. Unfortunately, the automated system that triggers commercials aired the first commercial break in error, interrupting Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue. The same technical error also impacted two commercial breaks later in the program, not just the one interrupting the monologue.”

When Kimmel found out what happened, he gave an update to his viewers, “I’ve known the staff at @wfaa personally and professionally for almost 20 years and believe this mistake was made unintentionally. Thanks for reposting and for correcting this error. Sending love to all my friends in Texas.”

Dallas has been a town full of conspiracies since John F. Kennedy was shot there, so I was hoping that this would be another one. Sadly, this is not one of them.

Jimmy Kimmel got COVID-19 again

Jimmy Kimmel is copying Stephen Colbert. First, the CBS host got COVID-19, then the ABC host got it. Then last week, Colbert tested positive for it for the second in a month, and guess what?

“I’m such a positive person, I tested positive AGAIN. I am feeling fine,” Kimmel wrote. “The great John @Mulaney & Andy Samberg @TheLonelyIsland have graciously agreed to host @JimmyKimmelLive for me tomorrow.”

Hopefully, he will be better soon and doesn’t get coronavirus for the third time. I guess we will have to see what happens to Colber to find out what happens to Kimmel.

Does Jimmy Kimmel really have COVID-19?
May 4th, 2022 under Jimmy Kimmel. [ Comments: none ]

On Monday, Jimmy Kimmel announced that his daughter, Jane, gave him COVID-19. Therefore, he is not able to host his show this week. Consequently, he asked comedian Mike Birbiglia to host the show.

The story of how that happened is pretty cool. Birbiglia texted Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, who is the EP of the show, to see if they wanted to do dinner while he was in town. Kimmel said that Molly tested positive for COVID-19, and he is awaiting his results. Then the host asked if he got it, would Birbiglia host Jimmy Kimmel Live. The comedian was on a plane to LA at the time, and of course, he was like, “Absolutely.” And the rest is Hollywood history.

Yesterday was Birbiglia’s first monologue, and he decided to do a  videochat with the man he replaced to see how he was doing. How is Jimmy feeling? He is wearing two pairs of sunglasses, a Hawaiian shirt, and a straw hat, and drinking an alcoholic beverage at his bar in the house. Therefore, you have to wonder if he is playing hooky? I think it is a little bit of both.

Hopefully, he will be better soon. But in the meantime, Birbiglia is doing a great job! It might’ve been a split-second decision, but it was a wise one.

Jimmy Kimmel’s daughter gave him COVID-19

For years, Jimmy Kimmel has tortured kids with different stunts. Well, now they are getting revenge. That is because one of them gave his daughter, Jane, COVID-19, and she gave it to her daddy.

“Our daughter brought us covid (even though we specifically asked her not to) All feeling fine, I am double vaxxed and boosted but the show must not go on,” he wrote. “Apologies to @TomCruise & @iliza and thanks to Mike Birbiglia @birbigs who’ll be filling in for me starting tomorrow night.”

Kimmel is the last of the late night broadcast hosts to get it. Jimmy Fallon was the first one to get it, then Seth Meyers and James Corden, and last week Stephen Colbert tested positive.

I want to say that just like his ratings, he came in last. But he is not in last place, so that joke doesn’t work.

So in all seriousness, I hope he and his family are better soon.

Nicolas Cage was stalked by two mimes

Nicolas Cage did his first national talk show appearance in 14 years, so Jimmy Kimmel had a lot of questions for the actor to make up for the lost time.

Did you know that Cage wanted to build a movie studio in Las Vegas, but Elon Musk got the money instead to build whatever he built?

Then there was the time that the Oscar winner was a winner at the roulette table. He turned $200 into $20,000 in 30 minutes. Does he still gamble? And what did he do with the money? You are going to want to hear what he did with the dinero.

Did Cage really have a two-headed snake? Yes, and the story of how he got it is epic.

Diane Kruger told Kimmel that Cage bought a cave full of bats, did he? I won’t answer the question, but I will tell you why he wanted it. He wanted to get naked with his ex-wife in it and drink Saki. That image made me think how can Nicolas Cage top himself in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent when the original is so much better than what anyone can come up with of him.

And finally, was Cage stalked by a mime? No, he was stalked by two of them. How did he react? He told the Jimmy Kimmel Live host, “That is just so weird. That is one of those things that made me ask the proverbial question, ‘Why?'”

With everything he told the ABC late night host, the fact that the double mime attack is what he considers weird is all you have to know about him. He is, and always will be, a legend.

And what is wrong with all of the bookers that haven’t booked Cage in 14 years? He is better than most of the guests that they have had on their shows. I hope this is the start of us seeing him on more talk shows, more often. I can listen to him go on and on.
