Jimmy Kimmel’s cheesy Father’s Day prank
June 18th, 2019 under Jimmy Kimmel. [ Comments: none ]

Every year, Jimmy Kimmel likes to get his viewers to do something mean to their sperm donors on Father’s Day. In the past, he asked the offspring to scream I love you at their dads, serve them breakfast in the shower, as compared to making it and then dumping it on their pops, and he even asked the kids to wake up their daddies by jumping on them in the middle of the night. This year he continued the tradition and once again it included food.

You know those viral videos where parents throw American cheese at their babies, the ABC host decided to reverse it. How would the papas all over America feel about that? Some handled it better than others and only one actually ate the slice that was thrown at his face. Compared to his other dares, this one is pretty painless, until you get to the last one. That one makes ever in the audience cry.

Now, I want to take issue with Jane Kimmel. She is 4 years old now, about time she started doing these pranks on her dad. Am I right? And what about his adult children Kevin and Katie, where are they? They need to get justice for all the innocent people who have been pranked in the past. They are Kimmels and they should be the best pranksters out there. Therefore, they need to prank their dad. Who is with me? Justice for Jimmy Kimmel’s victims.


Jamie Foxx messed up on live TV and surprised as George Jefferson
May 23rd, 2019 under ABC, Jimmy Kimmel. [ Comments: 3 ]

When ABC announced that they were going to do live versions of one episode from All in the Family and The Jeffersons, I thought it was going to crap all over the sitcoms’ legacy. I have been cursing out everyone involved and was prepared to freaking hate it. Shockingly, I really liked it.

When Woodly Harrelson opened his mouth and sounded like Archie Bunker, I was like what is going on? Can Marisa Tomei do just as well? I mean, we all think her Oscar was a joke. Well, she deserved it. It was like watching Jean Stapleton as Edith. Now when it comes to Mike and Gloria, Ike Barinholtz was OK and Ellie Kemper was beyond awful. Why was she the only one who did not wear a wig? She needs to stick at playing being cute and not try to be a good actress. She does not have the chops for it.

When it comes to the Jeffersons on that episode, Jovan Adepo nailed Lionel. As much as I enjoyed him, I wish they would have had someone else play him in the next episode. Just like the original series that had two Lionels. I never realized until last night that Wanda Sykes sounds like Isabel Sanford. She even looked like the late actress. Anthony Anderson was alright as Uncle Henry. He just did not have that fierceness that Mel Stewart had.

And then there was Jamie Foxx as George Jefferson. He came in like the hurricane that was Sherman Hemsley. It was like the late actor possessed him. Of course, he messed up but it just reminds you that they are doing this all live.

Next up was The Jeffersons, and we are getting a live version of the pilot episode. Jackée Harry played Diane and was not much like the original actress but she fit in perfectly. Kerry Washington was believable as Helen Willis. However, I wanted Lenny Kravitz to play Roxie Roker, his mom’s part. Amber Stevens West did OK as Jenny, but she did not have a lot to do. Unlike Stephen Tobolowsky (Mr. Bently) and Will Ferrell (Tom Willis). Both played their characters very calming, but not with the oomph that Paul Benedict and Franklin Cover made their roles their own. Tobolowsky just couldn’t hold his British accent for more than a few words. But it was still better than Kemper trying to do a New Yawk accident. Every time she talked, it sent a shiver down my spine.

Finally, the oddest casting choice to me was Justina Machado as Florence. Well, that was all a ruse. They decided to surprise us all and have Marla Gibbs reprise her role. Which meant she got to repeat her infamous line, “How come we overcame and no one told me?”

Her appearance was the cherry on top of what was a surprisingly good evening of programming. Hopefully, next up will be the Maude abortion episode and James’ death on Good Times. As Esther Rolle said, “Damn! Damn! Damn!” that will be good.

Oh, and I will take down that Jimmy Kimmel photo with all of the darts that I have thrown at it over the last few weeks. Sorry!


Remember when Jimmy Kimmel hinted about retiring? It ain’t happening!
May 14th, 2019 under Jimmy Kimmel. [ Comments: none ]

Jimmy Kimmel hinted when he signed his contract the last time that would be it for him. That was then and this is now. Today, ABC announced that he will be hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live for 3 more years. Bringing the late night talk show to its 20th year. What happens in 2023? We will find out then.

For now, we will just enjoy him torturing kids every Halloween and his Aunt Chippy until his contract is up again.

Seriously though, congrats to Kimmel and his team. They changed late night with viral videos like I’m F*cking Matt Damon and its follow-up I’m Fucking Ben Affleck. Along with many other things.


Diane Keaton gave Jimmy Kimmel an erection
May 7th, 2019 under Diane Keaton, Jimmy Kimmel. [ Comments: none ]

Last year, Diane Keaton was on Jimmy Kimmel Live and she kissed the host like how she passionately kissed Andy Garcia in Book Club. In those just over 350 days, she has not kissed another man. Therefore, she used being on the ABC talk show to hopefully show men that she is still very much kissable.

She did so by using the ABC late night host as her dummy. She wanted to show the boys her two new ways of locking lips. After seeing her lip-locking techniques, does it make you fellas want to make out with her?

Last year, I said I wanted to kiss her, this year not as much. While that is me, Kimmel really enjoyed being her dummy.


Tom Brady and Jimmy Kimmel do not have time for Matt Damon
May 3rd, 2019 under Jimmy Kimmel, Matt Damon. [ Comments: none ]

You do not have to be a football fan to know that Tom Brady had a good throwing arm. Jimmy Kimmel wanted to see it in person. Therefore, he took him to a house and told him to throw a pigskin through a window. What the Patriot did not know is that window belongs to his #1 fan Matt Damon.

When Matt Damon came out and saw who broke his window, he was OK with it. All he wanted was a photo with the quarterback. Was the ABC host going to let him get that? What do you think? Of course not.

The biggest takeaway from this bit is that Tom Brady cannot act to save his life. That has to be some of the worst acting I have ever seen and I watch really cheaply done horror movies.
