Kimmel

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. Things got personal, he didn’t back down, and America continues to devour it. Kimmel hosted the Oscars for the second year in 2018 to largely positive reception.
