Plot Synopsis

Each weeknight at 11:35pm ET/PT on ABC, host Jimmy Kimmel opens with a monologue, interviews celebrities, presents comedy bits and welcomes musical acts to his studio at Disney's El Capitan Theater, which is located on Hollywood Boulevard in the heart of the Walk of Fame. Some of Kimmel's most popular comedy bits include: Mean Tweets; Lie Witness News; Jimmy's Twerk Fail Prank; Unnecessary Censorship; YouTube Challenge; The Baby Bachelor; Movie: The Movie; Handsome Men's Club; Jimmy Kimmel Lie Detective; and music video parodies like "I (Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum" and a Blurred Lines parody with Robin Thicke, Pharrell, Jimmy and his security guard Guillermo. Plus, Kimmel sometimes takes over Hollywood Blvd., creating a concert experience for fans for acts like Paul McCartney, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Depeche Mode and Justin Timberlake.
JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! celebrates its 20th Anniversary with a primetime special on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at 10pm ET/PT on ABC. The episode will re-air in the show's regular 11:35pm timeslot later that night. George Clooney, Snoop Dogg and Coldplay were all guests on the debut show in 2003, and they all return as guests for the anniversary special.

"20 years. I can't believe it either," said Kimmel. "It makes absolutely no sense."

Kimmel's recent contract extension will keep him on ABC through a historic 23rd season, making JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! one of the longest-running talk shows in American television history.
