Kimmel Addresses ABC’s ‘Huge Blow’ in Canceling Roseanne: ‘We Don’t Have Much on This Network’

Jimmy Kimmel reacted to the sudden cancelation of ABC’s mega hit Roseanne. On Tuesday, a tweet made by Roseanne Barr went viral attacking former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, calling her the “baby” of “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.” Within hours, ABC announced that it would be canceling the show. “You’re not going to believe this… but she tweeted something outrageous,” Kimmel sarcastically said to his audience. “ABC decided to cancel its highest-rated show Roseanne following a tweet in which Roseanne compared an African American woman, a former advisor to President Obama to an ape, which did not sit well with ABC management or with anyone with a brain really. Kimmel called the cancellation a “huge blow” for ABC and had some fun at his own network’s expense. “We don’t have much on this network- we’re hoping that the NBA Finals goes eleven games this year. We’re Continue reading "Kimmel Addresses ABC’s ‘Huge Blow’ in Canceling Roseanne: ‘We Don’t Have Much on This Network’"

Watch Mark Hamill Ignite a ‘Star War’ With Jimmy Kimmel On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Jimmy Kimmel got into quite a feud with Star Wars icon Mark Hamill. Hamill, best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, is receiving his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. However, he was pretty selective as to where he wanted his star… which was right outside Kimmel’s studio. Kimmel caught up with Hamill, who was using a jackhammer to prepare for his star, but little did the late night host know that the actor was destroying his own star. “Wait a minute… that’s my star you’re jacking up!” Kimmel exclaimed. “Yeah, well not anymore!” Hamill laughed. “Why don’t you put your star in front of Hooters?” Hamill attempted to defuse the situation by using Jedi mind tricks, but Kimmel insisted that it only works “in the movies.” “What movie?” Hamill asked. “Star Wars!” Kimmel responded. “Exactly! This Continue reading "Watch Mark Hamill Ignite a ‘Star War’ With Jimmy Kimmel On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame"

Jimmy Kimmel Advocates for Children’s Healthcare While Holding His Son: ‘Fully Fund CHIP Immediately!’

On Monday, Jimmy Kimmel returned to his show and he had a bit of company with him. The late-night comedian emotionally told his audience that the reason why he was absent last week was because his son Billy had another open-heart surgery. “Daddy cries on TV, but Billy doesn’t,” Kimmel quipped. After thanking the doctors at Children’s Hospital for treating his son as well as “children from every income level,” he said that their health “is especially threatened” because of CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program). “It covers around 9 million American kids whose parents make too much money to qualify for Medicaid but don’t have access to coverage- affordable coverage through their jobs, which means it almost certainly covers children you know,” Kimmel explained. “About one in eight children are covered only by CHIP. And it’s not controversial. It’s not a partisan thing. The last time funding was authorized was in Continue reading "Jimmy Kimmel Advocates for Children’s Healthcare While Holding His Son: ‘Fully Fund CHIP Immediately!’"
