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.

Jimmy Kimmel's YouTube Hoax Tricked Jimmy Fallon

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel revealed that a viral video in which a woman accidentally lighting herself on fire while twerking was a hoax created by his show, but perhaps the funniest thing about the whole situation is that Kimmel's future late night rival Jimmy Fallon played the video during his monologue Friday night.

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.

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.

Jimmy Kimmel Reveals a Video of a Twerking Girl Catching on Fire Was a Hoax, and He Was Behind It

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel revealed that his show was responsible for creating an internet video known as "Worst Twerk Fail EVER - Girl Catches Fire!," in which a woman is dancing for the camera but falls on a bunch of candles and lights her pants on fire. The video racked up over 9.5 million hits in just a week, but Kimmel and his crew made it with stuntwoman Daphne Avalon. This isn't the first time a comedian has done something like this. Last year, Comedy Central's Nathan Fielder made a hoax video of a pig rescuing a baby goat from drowning that also proved very popular [...]
