Kimmel

Like his competitors, Kimmel was quickly back up and running from his house this spring when COVID-19 shut down traditional studio productions. He took the summer off to recharge, then returned to what he does best: Hosting both “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (now in its 18th season, making him the longest-tenured continuous late-night franchise host) and a revival of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” which he also executive produces. Kimmel continues to partner with Norman Lear on the Emmy-winning “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” franchise. And through Kimmelot, his new production company with Brent Montgomery, he’s producing a revival of “Crank Yankers” and developing a slate of projects. Kimmel once again hosted September’s Emmy Awards, anchoring remotely from the Staples Center.
