Jimmy Kimmel Live

Emmy-winning funnyman Jimmy Kimmel serves up comedy bits and welcomes guests that include other comics, celebrities, athletes and musicians, as well as everyday people with unusual or compelling personal stories. Kimmel's family and friends take part in the festivities, including his Cousin Sal, Uncle Frank (until his death in 2011) and childhood friend Cleto Escobedo III, who leads the show's house band. Recurring segments include the FCC-pleasing This Week in Unnecessary Censorship in which they take TV clips and "bleep and blur things whether they need it or not," as Kimmel describes it. But it's too bad they consistently run out of time for Matt Damon's segment.

    Jimmy Kimmel scoop: Donald Trump “hates baby bears”

    Kimmel's realization came in the wake of news that the Interior Department is ending a ban on hunting hibernating bears and their cubs in their dens. The National Park Service, under Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, apparently has a problem with some of the current protections for black bears, “including cubs and sows with cubs,” that prevent hunters from “harvest practices” that include using bait to lure bears out, using lights to find hibernating animals, and using dogs to kill bear cubs. The National Park Service now wants to roll back those pesky rules that stop people from killing baby bears for fun, according to a proposal, which was published in the Federal Register on Tuesday. Under the

    Jimmy Kimmel: White House Sinkhole Is One of 'Melania's Escape Tunnels'

    “You know how Trump frequently makes mistakes in his tweets?” Jimmy Kimmel asked his audience Tuesday night. “Over the weekend he wrote 'Melanie' instead of Melania. Or the way he'll use all caps or air quotes for no apparent reason. It turns out the president has staffers who help him compose those tweets.” This week, we learned that when President Trump's aides tweet for him they actually make grammatical errors on purpose so that they are “in his voice” and better “fit his style.” “They do this because they believe tweets with errors in them make the president more relatable,” Kimmel said. “And they do—to idiots.” “I mean, I knew some of those tweets weren't written by him,” the host added.
