The late-night wars have seen a surprising shift in recent months, as Colbert’s Late Show begins to overtake Fallon’s Tonight Show ratings, but might we be in for another shake-up soon? Perhaps over at ABC, as Jimmy Kimmel is apparently considering leaving Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2019.

We missed out on Back to the Future 2 premonitions by one year, but the Chicago Cubs making it to their first World Series in 71 years is no less historic. At least one pop culture Cubs reference is alive and well, however, as Will Ferrell reprises his iconic Harry Caray impression for Jimmy Kimmel.
The Doctor Strange trailer debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in April, so it’s only fitting the late-night host would get more exclusive access to the latest Marvel hero. And by “exclusive,” we don’t exactly mean “hire the Sorcerer Supreme for children’s birthday parties,” but well, here we are.
Despite declining ratings, this year’s Emmy ceremony went off with nary a hitch, even affording some refreshing upsets in the usual pool of repeat winners. Jimmy Kimmel too did a perfectly serviceable job keeping things moving, but naturally made a few gaffes in production of that opening sketch, the blooper reel of which you can watch right now.
Let it never be said that sitcom stars don’t know how to negotiate through the media. Where CBS previously locked down The Big Bang Theory for Seasons 8, 9 and 10 all at once, it remains uncertain if the CBS powerhouse will continue beyond the upcoming year. As for Kaley Cuoco? “It’s a very expensive question.”
Well, if Tom Hanks were going to spend 90 minutes reenacting a stretch of Captain Chesley Sullenberger’s life, it’s only fair the real Sully gets to do the same. See for yourself in the official Hanks biopic trailer, complete with Hanks’ old Bosom Buddies star Peter Scolari!
There has been a lot of skepticism about the new Ghostbusters. Would Paul Feig and his new cast pull it off? Would angry fanboys lose their minds before the movie came out? There was a lot of anxiety. But it’s hard to ignore an endorement like the one the new Ghostbusters got on Jimmy Kimmel Live! from the original Ghostbusters.
Game of Thrones’ big Hodor twist has been dissected every which way; whether it does, or doesn’t spoil the books, and even word from Kristian Nairn himself, but nothing feels quite so devastating as the onslaught of new “Hodor” gags wrought by Sunday’s “The Door.” For that, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss must apologize.
Before we get started, we know what you’re thinking: Han Solo is dead dummies. Yes, we know. But dead people have a way of reappearing in movies, especially Star Wars movies, so last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host asked Harrison Ford point...
Andy Samberg stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, and while he was there, he revealed a few significant details about the Lonely Island’s upcoming movie, which Samberg made with collaborators Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, along with Judd Apatow. Universal had previously announced the project as just the “Untitled Lonely Island Movie,” but as you can see in the clip above, it is untitled no more. Henceforth, the film shall be known as Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
