When Scott Van Pelt comes on the set of his new show at midnight at the tail end of Labor Day, he won’t have many of the trappings one might expect. There will be no in-studio band, and he won’t stand up in front of a microphone and spout a series of one-liners about whatever was trending on social media during the day.
Why would he? This is a sports-news program on Espn.
And yet, when Van Pelt greets viewers tuning into a new midnight edition of “SportsCenter” as Labor Day melts back into the working week, he may offer a few elements that would make his program a distant cousin, perhaps, to the antics-filled shows seen elsewhere at that time from Jimmy Fallon or Jimmy Kimmel. This “SportsCenter” arrives with ideas for segments like a bit of Van Pelt’s signature commentary, or “Best Thing I Saw Today, »

Do you ever watch something and then feel like the only response is an exhausted sigh? That's us right now. The culprit is Jimmy Kimmel's latest late-night sketch. On its face it's actually pretty funny, but it's also making us very depressed about the state of the country. The concept of the bit was two-fold: First the late-night host and his team hit the street in Hollywood to ask passerby a loaded question: Do they think that Barack Obama is a Muslim? It may seem ridiculous to still be entertaining this idea, but a recent poll actually showed that a majority of Republicans believe that he is, in fact, a Muslim. (Cue sigh again). Then the studio audience was tasked with guessing »
Force Friday excitement spread to Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (September 3), as the host revealed a cool new Star Wars-themed products and let viewers hear Force Awakens villain Kylo Ren's threatening tones for the fist time.
9 most exciting toys, gifts and costumes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Force Friday event
Kimmel flashed some intergalactic style wearing a pair of Chewbacca Crocs - although we doubt that they're really lined with "genuine Wookie fur".
"Tomorrow is what they call Force Friday," he told viewers, adding: "Also known as Adult Men Line Up Outside a Toystore Day."
Showcasing his best QVC sales pitch, Kimmel unveiled a brand new Stormtrooper mask, a talking Captain Phasma helmet and a Kylo Ren hood.

Fans of the 1D boys on how they want to change the world, Duck Army takes off, Joffrey turns Game of Thrones hero and Eddie Redmayne transformed
One Direction launched action/1D, part of a global citizens’ movement, in July and asked fans to send photos and videos calling out for change. Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis introduce a film made with contributions by youngsters from 172 countries. Another music superstar hoping to make a difference is Kanye West, who announced his intention to run for president in 2020. Jimmy Kimmel thinks the rap star has a lot in common with one of this year’s candidates, Donald Trump. The question from Justin Bieber, whose latest video has attracted nearly 20m views, is What Do You Mean?

Millions of New England Patriots fans celebrated a federal judge’s ruling that Tom Brady‘s “Deflategate” suspension be overturned, but none more so than Matt Damon. According to Jimmy Kimmel, at least. “The force was with Tom Brady and New England Patriots fans today,” the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host said of the decision in his opening monologue Thursday. “I knew that was gonna happen, of course the suspension was overturned. I mean — is that the face of someone you can stay mad at?” he asked. “Matt Damon is reportedly holed up in a bathroom right now with that picture in his lap, »

Togetherness star Amanda Peet, who can be seen next alongside Community‘s Alison Brie and Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudekis in the upcoming film Sleeping With Other People, was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and while the conversation between the two of them certainly touched upon the projects Peet was involved in, things got taken to another level when the pair discussed the recent season of Game of Thrones, of which Peet’s husband, David Benioff, is the showrunner. The topic came up after Kimmel mentioned about how Peet and Benioff live in Ireland for part of the year, while Game of Thrones is in production. After Kimmel praised Thrones as “one of the best shows ever,” telling Peet that he loved her husband, she responded, saying, “I don’t love him anymore,” before explaining to the laughing crowd that it’s because of one main »

According to a new public policy poll, 54 percent of Republicans believe that President Barack Obama is a Muslim, and so do some strangers Jimmy Kimmel found on the street on Wednesday. The ABC late-night host used the topic to play his regular audience guessing game, “Pedestrian Question,” for which Kimmel’s team asked people passing by on Hollywood Blvd. if the sitting Commander in Chief is a Muslim, then left it up to his studio audience to predict the answer. Responses were mixed, but one thing is for sure: After seven long years in the Oval Office, Obama still hasn’t convinced some. »

Amanda Peet is married to one of the most controversial figures in Hollywood, David Benioff. Does the name sound familiar? No? Well, he's one of the co-creators and showrunners of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones. Now you know why he's such a polarizing figure in Tinseltown. The deaths of many fan-favorite characters are on his hands, including that of Jon Snow. Even though Peet and Benioff have been married for almost a decade, the show's ending last season has caused a riff in their household. "I don't love him anymore," she explained to Jimmy Kimmel while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday. "This is a bombshell," responded Kimmel, clearly caught off »
Jimmy Kimmel is still not playing nice with the video game community. On Friday, the ABC late-night host took a shot at YouTube’s new Gaming platform, on which users upload videos of themselves playing video games for others to watch. “Watching another person play video games is like going to a restaurant and having another person eat your food for you,” he said at the time. “When I was a kid you only watched other kids play video games when you ran out of quarters.” The gaming community did not respond favorably to those comments, heavily disliking the “Jimmy Kimmel Live »

Jimmy Kimmel just invoked the wrath of millions of YouTube and gaming fans around the world. On August 28, 2015, Kimmel released a segment called “YouTube’s New Video Game Watching Service” where he introduces a fake service called "YouTube's Watch Watch" for people who want to watch others watching video games. Essentially, Kimmel poked fun of the online video site’s newly-released gaming hub, the entire genre of Let's Play gaming, and all the people who watch other people play video games.
As you can guess by the title of this story, the previous paragraph, and the premise of Kimmel's "joke", the bit didn't go over so well with the online video gaming community and its tens of millions of fans. The clip of the segment currently boasts the title of the most-disliked video on the Jimmy Kimmel Live YouTube channel, with over 63,000 thumbs-down (and only 5,300 thumbs-up). The ABC host received an influx of negative comments, »

Are you a bit confused over what happened between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus at the 2015 Video Music Awards on Sunday? Well, worry not! Jimmy Kimmel is here to save the day. The late-night host helped simplify the feud using a language we can all comprehend: emojis. He started it off by explaining how Cyrus gave an interview to the New York Times in which she said Minaj was "not too kind" and "not very polite." "So when Nicki Minaj accepted her Vma for best hip-hop video for 'Anaconda,'" Kimmel says, "she ended her speech by insulting Miley Cyrus." "And Nicki said, as you heard, 'This bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the »
If Kanye West actually runs for office in 2020, voters should expect to hear more of what they’re already hearing leave Donald Trump’s mouth. Jimmy Kimmel compared the rapper’s MTV VMAs acceptance speech for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award with a number of Trump’s media appearances, and found the public figures hold nearly identical positions — making them perfect running mates on a dream team of absurdity. “I think Kanye would make a very compelling candidate,” Kimmel said Monday while introducing the segment to his viewers. “He has a great deal in common with another famous person who wants to. »

Step aside, friend-of-the-program Chris Christie: fellow Gop presidential candidate Donald Trump is set to visit Jimmy Fallon‘s “Tonight Show” on Sept. 11. Two days earlier, the NBC late-night host’s Bff Justin Timberlake will return to the program for the first time since Fallon’s premiere week. That star-studded episode, which will also include guests Ellen DeGeneres and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, will simultaneously be displayed on a huge digital billboard in the heart of Times Square in midtown Manhattan. Finally, the broadcast network promised fans “a special never-before-seen performance” by Pharrell Williams on next Friday’s broadcast. Also Read: »

The last time Roseanne Barr was photographed with her son was in 2012 -- so this is a real treat! The 62-year-old actress was snapped outside of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" with her youngest child, Buck Thomas, in Los Angeles on Monday. Wearing a patterned tank with a white flower across the front, gray sweatpants and some dark shades, the platinum blonde star looked happier than ever with her son by her side. The "Roseanne" alum has been sporting blonde hair for a while now, but she still looks drastically different than she did during her time on the sitcom. She recently joked about her considerable weight loss, telling Us Weekly, "Crack!! I'm doing crack." She later clarified, "I'm just doing the things you're supposed to do...you know, moving more, and eating less." Back in April, the comedian revealed that she's going blind. "I have macular degeneration and glaucoma,” she told the Daily Beast. »

Jimmy Kimmel did a mashup video on his Monday show, highlighting two presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Kanye West. After noting that West would "make a great candidate," Kimmel expressed that the rapper "has a lot in common with another famous person who wants to be president," namely Trump. The talk-show host then showed footage of both West and Trump, and surprisingly (or maybe not), the two outspoken men are very similar. See the video here. »

As everyone already knows, Kanye West ended his 12-minute long VMAs acceptance speech on Sunday night by stating that he plans to run for president in 2020. However, what some people might not have realized when listening to his speech is that, in many way, the Grammy Award-winning rapper actually sounded a lot like a presidential candidate that’s already running in the 2016 election, a candidate that has dominated coverage on news channels and entertainment websites everywhere. I’m talking about Donald Trump, of course, and last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late night show host pointed out the very striking (and mostly very funny) similarities between West and Trump. While their political stances would more than likely not match up, the two biggest things that Kanye and “The Donald” have in common are their massive egos and their flair for the dramatic. And even though we know it would be impossible… »

Jimmy Kimmel, like many other red-blooded Americans, was inspired by Kanye West's Vma announcement that he'll run for president in 2020. The late-night host, however, offered proof on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday that West's verbosity, policies and anti-politics politicking have much in common with those of Donald Trump.
Kimmel's video spliced clips from West's epic Vma speech — or epic first stump speech — with various moments from Trump's endlessly entertaining, increasingly depressing campaign. Starting with their respective presidential proclamations, the clip jumped back and forth between West and Trump bashing politicians, »
When Kanye announced his unqualified bid for the country's presidency at the VMAs, Jimmy Kimmel realized that Yeezus was beginning to sound a lot like another aspiring candidate: Donald Trump. Kanye will probably not like this.Or this (Guillermo!): Last time Kimmel made fun of Kanye, the rapper turned savior turned fashion icon turned politician really didn't like it. They're supposed to be pals. But maybe they've come to an agreement, in which Kimmel is allowed to make fun of Ye a couple times a year in the name of comedy. Or maybe this is all part of Kanye's master plan to get the idea out there (any press is good press, right?). Or maybe the new-ish facial hair just has Jimmy feeling brave as hell. »

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez looked very much in love during their breakfast date in La on Saturday morning. The couple kept close while making their way back to their car, walking with their arms around each other and talking among themselves.

Miley Cyrus chose a very Miley Cyrus-esque ensemble for a hike with her dog, Mary Jane, in La on Friday. She was joined by a friend who donned an equally expressive outfit, and the two walked and chatted while making their way down the trail. Miley's belly-baring afternoon comes just days before her hosting gig at the MTV VMAs on Sunday; the singer is already making headlines ahead of the show with reports of what she may bring to the stage - along with some potentially awkward moments between celebrities during the ceremony, executive producers revealed that they "have a delay" prepared in case she does anything truly over the top. Miley also garnered attention this week when she weighed in on the recent feud between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj; after talking about how Taylor "butted in" to Nicki's comments about the VMAs, she added, "What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, »
