ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel took time out of his opening monologue on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live to grumble over the news that Pope Francis secretly met with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis last week during his visit to the U.S. and quip that it would have been better if he met with Kim Kardashian or murderous North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un instead.

On Monday night, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his latest book “Killing Reagan” and the late night comedian insisted that O’Reilly was the only “person that can beat Donald Trump.” After Kimmel argued that he didn’t think “Marco Rubio could beat Donald Trump” the late night host proclaimed his support for O’Reilly to take on the billionaire before he wondered “Bill O'Reilly, versus Donald Trump, who wins the Republican nomination?”

During an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, CNN’s Jake Tapper pushed back against the idea that the media fueled Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and instead stressed that there “is a chicken and egg thing there.”

From Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, an imaginary Trump for President ad – playing off Donald Trump's constant vague promises of delivering all things “great” and “best.”

During an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night, Ali Wentworth, wife of Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos, flashed her breasts to the late night host and his audience. Wentworth said she decided to flash the audience after she saw Miley Cyrus do the same in the previous segment. Stephanopoulos’ wife described how she and Cyrus “just bumped into each other” and they both exposed their breasts to each other.

During Thursday night's edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ABC comedian helped first lady Michelle Obama make a public service announcement “encouraging kids to make healthier choices about foods” in a new campaign called “FNV,” which stands for “Fruits 'N' Veggies.”

However, Kimmel pretended to be baffled by the effort's name, which he claimed stands for “Eat Your Effin' Vees” since he knows what the “F” really stands for because “I have HBO.”

“Transitions between” serious and not so serious stories “can be a bit rocky at times,” FNC’s Bret Baier noted in setting up a clip, at the end of his Tuesday night show, of just such a transition from HLN’s Morning Express. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live called the video its “Segue of the Day.”

After providing minimal coverage of former Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry’s 2016 announcement on Thursday night, ABC and NBC moved on from the story all together with zero mentions of Perry or the 2016 campaign on their Friday morning newscasts. Their late night comedy shows, however, spent plenty of time mocking Perry over his intelligence and eating of a corn dog back in 2011.

In a preview of the 2016 campaign, all five late night comics on Monday night mocked Ted Cruz, hitting the Republican as anti-immigrant, regressive and stupid. CBS host David Letterman didn't bother with a joke. Instead, he lectured, "Here's what I find interesting about Ted Cruz, he was born in Canada. His father fled to the United States from Cuba. Yet, Ted Cruz is against immigration. Isn't that odd?"

President Barack Obama was both comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s main topic of discussion and guest on his late night talk show on ABC Thursday night, with topics in the opening monologue and sit-down interview ranging from softball questions about driving, seeing a dentist, and aliens, to substantive topics such as the letter 47 Republican Senators sent to Iran, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, and Ferguson.

Two videos tonight: First, Weather Channel “reporters had very little trouble filling 24 hours of storm coverage,” FNC’s Bret Baier explained Wednesday night in a setting up a compilation video produced by ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, but “how valuable that reporting is, you decide.” Second, on Monday, Senator Rand Paul told CNBC anchor Kelly Evans to “shush.” On Wednesday night, CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman showed shushing a “celebrity” very deserving of such an admonition.

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.”
