Time magazine released the "Time 100" today, its annual list of the world's most influential people, and America's two newest 11:35pm talk show hosts, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel, made the cut. Other comedy people that made the list include Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, and The Onion character Joe Biden. Ben Stein, Kimmel's old boss on Comedy Central's Win Ben Stein's Money, wrote a blurb about him ("Whenever I have been in scrapes and have told Jimmy about it, he always says the same thing, 'I've got your back.'"), while Justin Timberlake wrote Fallon's, telling a story about the two of them doing a hilarious bit together at his [...]
"I don't have a particular preference. I think that my relationship with Jay Leno is well-known and I happen to like Jimmy Fallon a lot both personally and professionally so I would be very happy for him if and when he gets The Tonight Show … I'd rather [Leno] go to his garage and not compete with anybody. He remains very popular and as far as I'm concerned the less competition the better."
Last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, which brought a longstanding joke feud between between Kimmel and Matt Damon to a head by having Damon hijack the show and host it himself, scored Kimmel's best audience in its new 11:35 timeslot yet. The show earned a 2.92 rating overall and a 1.23 rating with Adults 18-49, handily beating Leno (0.76) by 62% and Letterman (0.56) by 120%. The episode was such a big hit that ABC has opted to re-air it in primetime on Tuesday night at 10pm, replacing a rerun of some show called Body of Proof. The extra special episode of Kimmel featured Matt Damon welcoming [...]
"Of all the people I have a fake show business relationship with, I feel fake closest to you," Martin Short tells Jimmy Kimmel at the top of this interview from last night. Later in the interview, Short also ranks his three best friends in show business (Steve Martin, Paul Shaffer, Eugene Levy). Martin Short interviews are always fun, but this one is especially so.
After NBC's official announcement yesterday that Jimmy Fallon will be taking over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno in February of 2014, all of the late night hosts weighed in on the big news on their shows last night. Conan O'Brien, who was previously given the Tonight Show job in 2009 only to have Leno take it back a year later, broke his silence on the situation by congratulating Fallon without mentioning Leno. "I want to congratulate Jimmy, that is a really fun gig … Jimmy is the perfect guy to do it; he’s going to do a fantastic job. So congratulations Jimmy," commented O'Brien. Letterman took some [...]
Here's a trailer for a fake movie from last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live Oscar special, featuring a bunch of big famous actors. It's a sequel to the previous year's Movie: The Movie trailer, which was a massive viral hit despite not featuring Matt Damon getting tricked into sucking a giant CGI dick like this one does.
Melissa McCarthy stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote her new movie Identity Thief and to demonstrate how easy it is to steal somebody's identity in real life. It's not hard at all as long as you can sneak someone's credit card out of their wallet without them noticing, dress like them, and happen to own a wig very similar to that person's hair.
Last night was supposed to be Matt Damon's first official guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live after Kimmel has made it a tradition to bump him from the show as a joke at the end of every episode. Instead, Matt Damon took his revenge. He kidnapped Jimmy Kimmel King of Comedy-style and hosted the show himself, renaming it Jimmy Kimmel Sucks with Kimmel bound and gagged behind him in the background the whole hour. Damon replaced Kimmel's bandleader with Sheryl Crow, his sidekick Guillermo with Andy Garcia, and had Robin Williams do his monologue for him, in addition roping in guest appearances from a whole slew of big names [...]
Late nights hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon both made it on Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people this year, and here's Kimmel giving a funny speech at the Time 100 dinner this week, all while pounding glasses of wine courtesy of Jimmy Fallon. This is gonna be the best late night rivalry ever.
Last year, Jimmy Kimmel debuted an extended trailer for a fake film called Movie: The Movie during his post-Oscars special, featuring tons of big name actors like Hanks, Meryl Streep, and George Clooney. He's doing it again this year on his Oscar special Sunday night, and here's a short trailer for the Movie: The Movie 2V trailer, featuring Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Amanda Seyfried, Bruno Mars, and a bunch of sexy mummies.
Hit the jump to watch last year's extended Movie: The Movie trailer:
Here's a video of Matt Damon going around and asking Jimmy Kimmel's neighbors for horror stories about the talk show host. It was supposed to air on Thursday when Damon tied Kimmel up and guest hosted his show, but Kimmel ended up showing the video the next night, proving that Matt Damon will never really stop getting bumped from Jimmy Kimmel Live.
