“Voting is one of our most sacred duties, and it’s important to start talking about it early,” said Kerry Washington on Tuesday. With this in mind, the returning Jimmy Kimmel Live guest host asked several kids for their thoughts on President Donald Trump and the electoral process, speaking to them via video call.
Overall, there was some confusion concerning exactly how people cast their votes (“Maybe you go inside the White House and say it?”), who can vote (“Actually I think I voted before”), and how much it costs to do so (“$2000?”). However, the children were more or less united on their opinion of the current president. Read more…

The summer of Jimmy Kimmel Live guest hosts rolls on, with a super glam Kerry Washington taking the reins for Monday night’s show. She was joined by her dad Earl, whom she reveals was an Emmy-deserving background extra on Little Fires Everywhere.
“He’s the most adorable man in America, and he loves to tell jokes,” she said, “so when he heard I was doing my first late night monologue, he wanted to pitch in and help me out with material, because he doesn’t think I’m funny.”
Earl is indeed completely adorable, telling Washington about the importance of humor during tough times, and kicking off with a meta moment: “How do you know it’s a dad joke? It becomes ap-parent.” Read more…

2020 has been weird for everybody, but Sarah Cooper, the latest comedian to guest host Jimmy Kimmel Live, has definitely not had a normal one.
“This year has been insane,” she said, before correcting herself: “I’m sorry. That’s offensive. This year has been presidential.
“I started this year doing a late night set at a pizza place in Jersey City. Now here I am hosting a late night show in a vacant house. Actually, the number of people in the audience is exactly the same.”
Cooper shot to fame this year thanks to her pitch-perfect, expressive lipsyncing of Trump’s rambling public statements. So as much as she’s clearly not a fan of the president, she has to admit that his unhinged tenure has been good for her, personally, in one specific way. Read more…

Almost a decade ago, Samuel L. Jackson’s reading of bedtime poem “Go the Fuck to Sleep” captivated the internet. Now the actor has returned to spoken word, presenting author Adam Mansbach’s timely new adaptation of the classic: “Stay the Fuck at Home.”
“The ‘rona is spreading, this shit is no joke — it’s no time to work or roam,” read Jackson, delivering the important PSA on a video call with Jimmy Kimmel. “The way you can fight it is simple, my friends: stay the fuck at home.”
Jackson has taken his own advice and is social distancing in his own home with his wife and daughter. He also encouraged people to donate to Feeding America, a charity that works to relieve hunger in the U.S. Read more…

“With all that’s been going on over the past couple of weeks virus-wise, I feel like we’ve almost forgotten about the presidential election,” said Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday. All elections are important, but the coronavirus pandemic and a severely divisive U.S. president have raised the stakes particularly high this year.
As such, Democratic candidate Joe Biden joined Kimmel via video call to discuss his campaign, how he’s social distancing, and Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I don’t quite understand the lack of willingness to move rapidly and to let science dictate,” said Biden, referring to Trump’s slow reaction to the pandemic. Read more…

“Thank you for joining me during corona-geddon,” Jimmy Kimmel quipped from his coronavirus-induced home isolation on Thursday. “This is day, what, 75?”
Millions of people worldwide are cooped up inside in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and people are already going a bit stir-crazy. In Kimmel’s case, this has translated to baking bread and committing to dressing up for #FormalFriday tomorrow. Unfortunately, as Kimmel notes, the U.S. government has said this situation could last over 18 months.
“I am not sure how many rolls of toilet paper that is, but I know I don’t have them,” said Kimmel. “Eighteen months of quarantine means we are about to see a lot of our friends’ real hair color.” Read more…

“It was an all caps kind of day for the President of the United States today,” said the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live during Thursday’s episode.
President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial is scheduled to start on Tuesday, with the Senate requesting he provide a written response to the charges by Saturday. Of course, as Kimmel pointed out, Trump dealt with this request the same way he deals with most things — with angry tweeting. Which is a kind of written response, I guess.
Kimmel went on to go through some of the special rules the senators in the impeachment trial will have to abide by, including having to stand when they cast votes. “[This] is a big deal, because for a lot of these senators this will be the first time they’ve ever stood for anything,” quipped Kimmel.

On Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, friendly neighbourhood Tom Holland spoke about how he helped keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a drunken phone call.
Believing Spider-Man was being removed from the MCU, Holland had initially only asked for Disney CEO Bob Iger contact details so he could thank him for the experience. “I got his email, I sent him the email, and he responded very quickly saying, ‘I’d love to jump on the phone with you at some point — when are you free?'” recalled Holland. “And you don’t give Bob Iger a schedule. You’re like, ‘whenever, Bob!'” Read more…

Tuesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! took to the streets to ask Trump supporters whether they felt the U.S. president should be impeached for his controversial actions. Unsurprisingly, they didn’t, disagreeing across the board.
However, the facts put to the public weren’t actually about Donald Trump. Instead, they were very clear and obvious references to Richard Nixon. You know, that other U.S. president who also faced impeachment for doing crimes. The one who gave us the suffix “-gate” for every public scandal since the ’70s. The one who resigned rather than drag everyone through further mud-slinging and suffering. Read more…

In the crossover special you never saw coming, Game of Thrones meets Full House — thanks to Jimmy Kimmel.
Starring very good sport Nikolaj Coster-Waldau alongside Dave Coulier and Bob Saget, it’s one of the most cringeworthy things you’ll see this week. “Cut it… off.” Read more…

In light of the UN’s dire warning about the Earth’s accelerating extinction rate, George Clooney has stepped up for a PSA against people and their “dumbfuckery.”
“Dumbfuckery is highly contagious, affecting the minds of even the most stable geniuses,” the actor joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night.
Focusing his attention on climate change, vaccinations, and the dinosaurs, it’s the kind of reminder that we shouldn’t need — but unfortunately do. Read more…

Queer Eye is back, with Season 3 ready to mist up your eyes on Netflix.
So, Jimmy Kimmel invited four of the Fab Five, Antoni, Karamo, Tan, and Jonathan, to weave their magic for the late show host’s longtime sidekick, Guillermo.
Let’s start with that “bold t-shirt choice,” a portrait of a chihuahua mean to make you “bark for your confidence,” and a strong (very strong) Tequila Sunrise recipe.
It’s a genuinely heartwarming segment, due to the Fab Five’s signature respect for all of their subjects, even if it’s for a comedy show. Read more…

It seems like no matter what, the same things happen over and over at every wedding.
Like the best man’s speech, which is always full of inside jokes that no-one laughs at, or underestimating the demand for shrimp, we guess.
Now, Josh Groban has an album full of songs for “every marital moment,” called Josh’t Married, which featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday.
With songs like “You’re About To Get Married” and “We Told You Not To Bring Your Kids,” it’s a great addition to well, you know what. Read more…

Film after film has been made into a Broadway musical, from Mean Girls to Legally Blonde. But who would have thought you could make a musical from Sully?
For a new segment dubbed “Fraudway,” Jimmy Kimmel made up a musical version of the 2016 film starring Tom Hanks, inspired by the emergency landing made by U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River, after it struck a flock of geese.
Kimmel’s team asked folks passing through Times Square in New York to review the fake musical, dubbed Hudson, We Have a Problem, with pretty hilarious results.
But not to make liars out of their participants, Kimmel then presented an actual number from his Sully-inspired musical on Tuesday night’s show, performed at the Howard Gilman Opera House of the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Read more…

You’d better believe Tiffany Haddish would be quite alright existing in space.
The Girls Trip star and Saturday Night Live favourite joined Jimmy Kimmel for a cocktail and “Three Ridiculous Questions” on Thursday night, one of which was whether or not she would do well in space.
“I know I would thrive in space,” she told Kimmel. “If there was a man there with me. If there’s a female there, I’m not gonna thrive. Because we can’t reproduce.”
Older man? “That’s fine, yeah that’s cool with me, I’ll change his space diaper. That sperm still work.” Read more…

Mean Tweets is back, and this time it’s featuring the kind of people who you’d think are used to nasty comments: rappers.
On Tuesday, Jimmy Kimmel featured the likes of 50 Cent, A$AP Rocky, Eve, Pusha-T, Big Sean, Remy Ma, Rae Sremmurd, Anderson .Paak, DJ Khaled, and more reading out the bilious comments directed at them on Twitter.
You have to love them for being good sports though, even if their entire discography gets compared to a fart, as Wale gets told. Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel has been pretty quiet about Donald Trump’s recent vendetta against late night show hosts.
During a rally for South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, Trump called Stephen Colbert a “low life,” Jimmy Fallon a “lost soul,” and Kimmel “terrible.” But unlike Colbert and Fallon, Kimmel had yet to respond.
Now we know why — he was off-grid, on summer vacation with his family in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Montana with no service. But Kimmel finally responded to Trump on Monday night, with a big ol’ fact check.
During the rally speech, Trump told a longwinded story about his experience on Jimmy Kimmel Live! pre-election, that included a claim that the late show host reverently waited out on Hollywood Boulevard for Trump, and apparently visited him in his dressing room before the show. Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel isn’t taking your shit lying down.
On Tuesday night, Kimmel went to town on the Graham-Cassidy bill — proposed by Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy — for failing the “Jimmy Kimmel test.”
In the monologue, Kimmel said Cassidy “lied right to my face” when he appeared on the show in May, where the senator promised coverage for kids like Kimmel’s son who was born with congenital heart disease.
In the day after Kimmel’s outburst on the bill, politicians and television personalities lined up to criticise the talk show host. Like Cassidy, who accused Kimmel of not understanding the bill, when talking to CNN‘s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday morning. Read more…
