Kimmel

TV Host

“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” premiered in 2003 in the late-late slot to solid viewership, then in 2013 it moved to 11:30 to face “The Tonight Show” and “The Late Show” — and the funnyman cemented himself as a post-primetime destination. A-listers love the show, regularly participating in videos that give “Live!” a whole separate life on the Internet. Despite competition from Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon — and later-night hosts James Corden and Seth Meyers — Kimmel has kept up the buzz factor.

His Kimmelot media banner is on the move with new production ventures for TV, digital and mobile.
