This episode, better known as "Jimmy Kimmel Sucks" has Matt Damon kidnapping Jimmy and hijacking his show, where he proceeds to fire Guillermo and Cleto, replacing them with Andy Garcia and Sheryl Crow.

We are then shown Jimmy's attempts to audition, horribly, for every role Matt ever played. Many big-name celebrities make guest appearances on this show, including Jimmy's ex-girlfriend. The show ends with Jimmy getting bumped by Matt. Written by alberta1

How the hell has this episode not been reviewed yet??
17 May 2019 | by Cpt_JackSparrowSee all my reviews

Jut my 2 cents. THIS is what thinking outside the box gets you! This was a FANTASTIC episode! I understand that it can't be done all the time due to the schedules of the many celebrities that appeared on the show but WOW... just WOW!

I couldn't stop laughing! Seeing the actors and actresses portraying their alternate selves that loathe Jimmy Kimmel was absolutely hilarious. And dare I say, I WOULD actually watch a show where Matt Damon were the host! I'd say that this episode may backfire on Jimmy Kimmel but I'm 6 years too late because he's still doing fine!

We don't get this sort of thing with talk shows anymore and it's sad. I really wish more late night shows would do this kinda stuff and not shy away.
