China Is Demanding More From Jimmy Kimmel Over Child's Joke

Jimmy Kimmel Live continues to be criticized over a recent joke made by a child on the show. In a segment from Oct. 16, Kimmel asked several of six- and seven-year-olds what the US should do about its $1.3 trillion debt to China, to which one child replied, "Kill everyone in China." After a backlash, ABC apologized for the segment, but that didn't stop a petition making it all the way to the White House. Now, China's foreign minister is asking for more, saying in a press conference yesterday, “ABC should face up to its mistake and respond with a sincere attitude to the reasonable demands by Chinese people in America, [...]

Kanye and Kimmel Talked Things Out Last Night

Last night, Kanye West came by Jimmy Kimmel Live so the two men could talk out their beef. If you missed it, Kanye went on a bit of a twitter rampage after Kimmel did a video spoofing an interview he did on the radio in which he was represented by a child. You know, a totally normal and relatable reason for two guys to get into a fight. The first part of the interview is above, the rest is below.

Will Arnett Showed Off HIs Love For Hockey, E-Cigarettes on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Will Arnett visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to plug his new sitcom The Millers and reveled in his Canadian-ness with a story about flying with Wayne Gretzky on a recent trip up north. He's also probably the first person to smoke an e-cigarette on late night television, but he makes it work. Below, he'll make you never want to go to a baseball game with Jason Bateman.

A Look Through the Best Emmys Openings and Monologues

When several of the best recent hosts joined Neil Patrick Harris during his monologue last night at the Emmys, it was as a reminder that, despite the usual award show grumblings and random musical performances, the producers of the Primetime Emmys have a pretty good track record. They try new things and let the hosts have fun, and for the most part, their network-influence emcees are appropriate and talented (and when they get it very wrong, they course correct). Here's a look back at some of the best openings and monologues from the ceremony's impressive history:

Andy Samberg and Jimmy Kimmel Compared Their Fasting Holidays

Andy Samberg dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and they spent a few minutes comparing their obligatory religious fasting days and why Andy chose soccer over a Bar Mitzvah. They went on to discuss dreadlocks, weddings, Costco, and Samberg's new show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine; all that is below.

Chris Elliott Got Super Naked on Jimmy Kimmel's Desk Last Night

Nudity appears to have been the theme of late night on Monday, and Chris Elliott's decision to get naked on Jimmy Kimmel Live would probably make even Eric Andre blush. Elliott's nudity, of course, was all for the art. Below, he talked about his eccentric, not particularly health new diet.

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel Are Gonna Have It Out Tonight

Kanye West wil be stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, presumably to settle the Twitter feud the two found themselves in a couple weeks ago. It all stemmed from a parody video that Kimmel made about an interview West did with the BBC, which apparently annoyed the rapper. Kimmel addressed the appearance on last night's show.

Kanye and I had a disagreement a couple of weeks ago, and it got a little bit out of hand. Tomorrow night, we will sit down and discuss it like normal people do — on television. It’ll just be us, and Dr. Phil. And neither of us is leaving until this government shutdown gets [...]

Jimmy Kimmel Found Himself in a Twitter Feud with Kanye West

Jimmy Kimmel last night addressed the Twitter feud he suddenly found himself in with Kanye West, who was furious at Kimmel after he spoofed a recent West interview on his show Wednesday. That video, plus all of their quasi-Twitter war (West refused to include Kimmel's handle in his tweets) are below:

Jimmy Kimmel On Making His Show Consistently Good

"The most satisfaction I get is when I do a show that is solid from beginning to end. Getting the consistency to a point where you don’t feel like dry heaving after the show every night is a major milestone."

- Jimmy Kimmel talked to The New York Times about his show getting better, The Emmys, and comparing himself to Letterman

Jimmy Kimmel Plays a Bunch of Media Reactions to His YouTube Hoax

Yesterday, Jimmy Kimmel revealed his show was behind a viral YouTube video of a woman dancing and catching fire that even tricked Jimmy Fallon. Here's Kimmel on last night's show, addressing the situation and playing a bunch of clips from TV shows reporting on the hoax.

The White House Will Be Forced to "Investigate" a Joke From 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Last week, ABC issued an apology for a child's remark about China from the October 16 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. Nevertheless, a petition calling for the White House to "investigate" the show continued to grow, and it has now acquired the 100,000 signatures required for the Obama administration to comment on the incident.

In the original segment, "Kids' Table", Kimmel asked a bunch of six- and seven-year-olds what the US should do about its $1.3 trillion debt to China. One child replied, "Kill everyone in China," which Kimmel laughed at, ultimately ending the segment with, "Well, this has been an interesting edition of Kids Table – the [...]

The Cast of 'Modern Family' Played a Round of 'Family Feud' Last Night

The entire cast of Modern Family joined Jimmy Kimmel on his show last night, and in a stroke of cross-promotional genius, former game-show host Kimmel hosted the ABC television family on a special segment of Modern Family Feud, where the sibling Pritchetts took on their partners, the In-Laws. Below, watch the rest of the segment, and then Kimmel's interview with the cast, where apparently Eric Stonestreet is mid-way to a Dodgers game and Sofia Vergara brings a dance party wherever she goes.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Helped Jimmy Kimmel Stage Another Video Hoax

Jimmy Kimmel got a lot of attention for his recent viral video hoax, so he made very clear last night that his latest YouTube stunt was just that. In a segment about recent viral videos of meltdowns, Julia Louis-Dreyfus proves her Emmy-winning acting chops in this massive coffee shop freakout. Even, or especially, knowing it's fake, it's worth watching for JLD alone.

Amy Poehler and Stephen Merchant Interrupted Jimmy Kimmel's Monologue Last Night

Amy Poehler and Stephen Merchant were Jimmy Kimmel's guests last night, and they both interrupted his monologue by impatiently calling him from their dressing rooms to ask when they get to go on the show/ask for spray butter.

Check out Amy Poehler and Stephen Merchant's interviews on the show below:
