Jimmy Kimmel marveled this past Monday night at how the networks, which covered the New Year’s Eve celebration in New York City’s Times Square, found a new angle to emphasize, “and that new angle was none other than the human bladder.” Viewers of his ABC show were then treated to a compilation of clips dubbed “Pee Watch 2014.” Afterward, Kimmel offered an apt observation about when people don’t “pee on the street in New York.”

On Wednesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, Bill Maher reacted to the Islamist attack in Paris by beseeching his ideological fellow travelers to "turn toward the truth" about the Muslim world's opposition to "liberal principles." Maher underlined that "hundreds of millions of [Muslims] support an attack like this. They applaud an attack like this. What they say is – oh, we don't approve of violence, but you know what? When you make fun of the prophet, all bets are off."
Fox News host Megyn Kelly appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night to talk about a variety of things including her attendance at the annual White House Christmas Party. Speaking to Kimmel, Kelly joked that while she was at the White House “boy did I see a lot of MSNBC anchors. I mean you couldn’t take two steps without hitting one...I think they got a few more invitations than we got.”
“The Buffalo area got slammed with more than five and a half feet of lake-effect snow early this weekend. It’s expected to get an additional three feet by tomorrow morning,” substitute FNC anchor Doug McKelway noted on Thursday night before mockingly setting up a clip by maintaining “this is nothing, though, compared to the extreme conditions that hit southern California.”
On Wednesday night, comedian Jimmy Kimmel used Senator Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) annual Wastebook as an opportunity to mock the federal government’s continued waste of taxpayer dollars. The ABC late night host hilariously asked his audience if they could “tell the difference between a real government expenditure from Wastebook and an idea a stoner came up with on his own.”
Vice President Joe Biden visited Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago, prompting ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel to send a video crew out onto Hollywood Boulevard to ask: “Who is Joe Biden?” Of course, no one heard of him and several had some very creative, if ridiculous, answers.
Even liberals and moderates have become disillusioned with President Obama’s failed policies and promises (Obamacare, anyone?) On Tuesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late-night talk show host started the show by making a joke about Obama’s incompetence. Even Kimmel’s presumably liberal audience laughed.
Kimmel began by joking that the World Cup has led workplaces to be less productive. It was no different in the White House, Kimmel explained. (Video and transcript below.)
Liberals blame global warming for pretty much anything that happens weather-wise, so why not Godzilla too?
Jimmy Kimmel sent a video crew onto Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles to ask passers-by about whether the movie creature Godzilla is real, surprisingly pressing one guy: “Do you believe these creatures are caused by global warming?”
George Stephanopoulos may no longer be a paid partisan activist, but he most certainly helps Democratic candidates and causes from his perch as an ostensibly objective journalist. Witness the interview the Good Morning America co-host had with Jimmy Kimmel on Monday’s edition of Kimmel’s eponymous late-night ABC program, which served to butter up former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary, a likely 2016 presidential prospect.
Kimmel spent much of the interview peppering the This Week anchor with questions about his time working for President Clinton, including a question about the nation’s 42nd president “had ever brought” Stephanopoulos “to tears.” [See video below. For MP3 audio, click here]
Despite a tragic shooting at Fort Hood, a major Supreme Court ruling and developments on Benghazi, all three morning shows on Thursday devoted time to Bill Clinton's discussion of aliens on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Yet, NBC's Today, ABC's Good Morning America and CBS This Morning ignored a profoundly dumb question from the comic regarding Clinton running for vice president. [See video of the question below. MP3 audio here.]
Instead, GMA's Amy Robach enthused, "And finally, former President Bill Clinton isn't ruling out a possible alien invasion here on Earth. He visited Jimmy Kimmel last night and revealed that he did, in fact, look into the possibility when he was president." Talking to co-host and former Democratic operative George Stephanopoulos, she wondered, "George, was it the common topic of conversation in the Clinton administration?"
A couple of weeks ago, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford flew down to Los Angeles to appear on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live – where Kimmel confronted him with sets of photos showing the very different approaches to his job and constituents compared to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
Some pretty humorous contrasting pictures in this clip from Kimmel’s March 4 program.
In a fun feature on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, “Lie Witness News,” he sends a camera crew out onto the streets of Los Angeles to ask pedestrians about events that have not happened. But the people are too embarrassed or ill-informed to realize the fake-out and offer their opinions on the non-existent premise.
Monday’s (March 3) Special Report with Bret Baier ended with an excerpt from an “Oscars Edition,” proving, Baier explained, how “the locals were not exactly well-versed on this year’s top flicks.” Painful hilarity ensues.
