Kimmel on the mend

TV host on road to recovery

NEW YORK — Jimmy Kimmel, host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” was in good shape after having an emergency appendectomy on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

“The surgery was a success,” Kimmel’s publicist, Lewis Kay, said in an e-mail Thursday. “The rest of this week’s tapings of `Jimmy Kimmel Live’ have been canceled until he is back on his feet. He is resting comfortably and is looking forward to getting back to work.”

The 39-year-old comedian, who dates actress-comic Sarah Silverman, has hosted the late-night talk show for four years.
