We’re no where near the middle of outrage from proposed congressional budget cuts, the most visible of which would eliminate funding for staples like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

In all the chaos, however, Kimmel’s final bit with Matt Damon ended up lost to time, as the host now explains how the show was meant to end.

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.

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.
