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 off against “The Tonight Show” and The Late Show,” and the funnyman cemented himself as a key late-night destination. The show is a popular celebrity spot, regularly spawning viral videos that give his show a whole separate life on the Internet. Despite competition from Colbert and Fallon — and later-night hosts Corden and Meyers — Kimmel has kept up his buzz factor, especially when he entered the health-care debate to do battle with Trump following infant son Billy’s heart surgery.
