Re: Will Jimmy Kimmel retire in 2019?

I hope Kimmel does retire since he jumped on the Partisan Political Bandwagon. (I actually used to like Kimmel as he kind of stayed out of the partisan politican BS). I prefer the Johnny Carson Political Humor where you make fun of all Political Parties (I'm a Republican and he used to kill Dan Quayle every night but it was funny), and don't make political speeches on issues either. If you want to get political opinion, I will watch Cable News or Nightline for that.

I think in Kimmel's case it's a desperate grab for ratings. Kimmel is trying to please his bosses at ABC as this would be the time network executives would start thinking about going in another direction with late night.

Having a newborn son nearly die from a heart condition will change your outlook on a lot of things. Dave got super political after his son Harry was born. Actually, come to think of it, it started with 9/11. But having his son definitely made Dave more outspoken on political issues.

Of course, I'm sure the ratings boost has something to do with it as well. Let's face it, Trump's an easy target.

I don't watch Kimmel but I do see the clips where he talks about health care.

Maybe you don't know what it means to be partisan, but I don't recall Kimmel ever promoting support for the Democratic party.

Some of you might be interested to know Sarrah Silverman is guest hosting for two nights this week, last night and tonight. She did a pretty good job last night.

Wow. I wouldn't ask my ex-girlfriend to house-sit for me. Glad that they are still on good terms.

The Killers play live tonight. I want to record that.

Re: Jimmy Kimmel Live! (ABC)

Could this be the end?

I kind of liked him more when did that joke of switching shows with Fallon on April Fools Day.

It would be another late night shuffle with him and Corden leaving.

Guess Conan would have no interest in joining ABC.

Jimmy Kimmel is thinking very seriously about his future in late-night television.

Kimmel, 54, revealed he has considered ending his long-running namesake series, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, during an appearance on Variety's Awards Circuit podcast.

At this time, Kimmel's contract with ABC ends in 2023, which has prompted Kimmel to ponder his next steps.

"I wish I knew I was gonna do," he admitted. "I have moments where I go, 'I cannot do this anymore.' And I have moments where I go, 'What am I gonna do with my life if I'm not doing this anymore?' It's a very complicated thing. And there are practical considerations, and there are family and friend considerations and coworker considerations."

Kimmel continued, "Eventually, I am going to have to stop doing this. I'm not going to do this forever. I would not be honest at all if I said that I have decided one way or the other. I'm thinking about it a lot, though."
