Timeslots

As the name suggests, the program originally aired live (albeit with a delay of a few seconds) in the Eastern Time Zone. However, the show had problems reliably censoring unairable material (Snoop Dogg managed to sneak in an unexpurgated middle finger on the debut show). Due to increasing concerns about FCC fines for indecency, the show began its current practice of taping an hour before it is aired (and with a subtle on-screen disclaimer indicating it's not live). The hour-long program premiered after Super Bowl XXXVII on January 26, 2003 on ABC. It airs weeknights at 12:07 a.m. in most parts of the country but the time does vary from station, resulting in the show beginning in the middle of competitors The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, and ending in the middle of Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. The program currently follows Nightline on ABC. Some speculated that Kimmel would move to the 11:35 p.m. slot after Ted Koppel retired, but it remains in its regular timeslot.

ABC affiliates not airing the show

WSB and WSOC do not run the show because of the existing contracts they have with ABC. According to their contracts, the stations are only required to air ABC shows until 12:35 a.m. ET. Jimmy Kimmel Live runs until 1:07 a.m. ET, which would force the stations to relinquish time that they use for lucrative syndicated and/or local programming. (In particular, WSB uses the slot for a re-run of its 11:00 p.m. ET newscast.) A press release from WSB in 2004 claimed that the station hoped to resolve the situation and air the show, but there is no indication of any current negotiations on the matter. Both stations are owned by Cox Enterprises. In November 2005, Cox station WFTV in Orlando began airing the show after initially refusing to do so. Some ABC stations owned by Allbritton Communications Company did not begin airing the show until April 12, 2004. KTUL in Tulsa, Oklahoma did not air the initial post-Super Bowl episode, or most of the first few months of the show. Tulsa's then-WB affiliate, KQCW (formerly KWBT, now a CW affiliate) aired the show at 12:07 a.m., and would cover the ABC logo on the bottom of the screen with their own station logo.

Stations airing the show on tape delay for other late night programming

Chicago's ABC O&O station WLS-TV airs the show at 12:07 a.m. Central instead of 11:07 p.m, due to the daily rerun of the Oprah Winfrey Show at 11:05 p.m.; WLS is the flagship station for Oprah, and the original home for the show as a local program. North Dakota stations WDAY and WDAZ air the show at 12:08 a.m. Central, with The Insider and paid programming airing in the usual timeslot. KMBC in Kansas City airs the show at 12:37 a.m. Central, following reruns of Frasier, Will & Grace, and Sex and the City, and Nightline.

Directors and Producers

The March 28, 2005 article of the New York Post announced that actor/writer/comedian Bobcat Goldthwait was the show's new director, replacing original director Keith Truesdell who has gone on to a very successful sitcom career. Goldthwait directed the show from 2004 to 2006, when he was replaced by current director Joe DeMaio. Since joining, the ratings increased to about two million viewers per night. The numbers have jumped up to 50% with teens, and is the number three show among teenagers (trailing only behind Laguna Beach and Family Guy).

Music and Regular Segments

Music is provided by the band Cleto and the Cletones, led by Kimmel's childhood friend, Cleto Escobedo III. Kimmel's relatives, Frank Potenza, called Uncle Frank, and Sal Iacono, called Cousin Sal, are "characters" that appear on the program in most episodes. Uncle Frank is often set out to do reporting on the red carpet of a movie premiere or award show, where he will do things like mistake the celebrity he is talking to for a different person. Cousin Sal usually performs skits out of the studio, such as impersonating a store employee, purposely giving customers bad service, insulting them or giving them something they did not order/ask for. Another "character" is parking lot attendant Guillermo, who does a regular segment called Guillermo's Hollywood Roundup in which he carries a fake lasso and fills Jimmy in on the latest celebrity gossip via tabloids. One of the show's newest "characters" is Veatrice. Like Uncle Frank, she also plays a security guard. Cleto and the Cletones is the moniker of the house band on the ABC-TV late-night television program, Jimmy Kimmel Live (2003- present). ...

This Week in Unnecessary Censorship

On Fridays there is a segment called This Week in Unnecessary Censorship, a parody on the FCC's censorship rules, where TV clips are unnecessarily bleeped and blurred. Kimmel began the bit during the outset of the indecency "witchhunt" of 2004 and in several of the first editions of it mentioned the kind of undue pressure and problems his friend Howard Stern was receiving. Clips from news or events during the week will have a nominally inoffensive word or phrase bleeped and the mouths blurred in a way that makes it sound/look like the person in the clip had issued a profanity. Another similar obfuscation makes a wave to a crowd look like an inappropriate gesture, or blurring areas in where private parts are as if they were exposing themselves or nude.

Frequently at the end of the show, Kimmel thanks the guests as usual, but then adds, "Our apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time."

Trivia

  • Jimmy's most frequented guest is Sarah Silverman who is his girlfriend of five years.
  • The first ever episode on January 26, 2003, Jimmy served beer to his guests and claimed to be the first late night show to do so.
  • The theme song for Jimmy Kimmel Live is performed by Robert Goulet.
  • From September 2004 to August 2006, reruns of the show aired on most Thursdays. However, since September 2006, reruns of the show have been airing on most Mondays (to avoid conflicting with ESPN's Monday Night Football).
  • Early episodes had a different announcer each night and a different co-host each week. Dicky Barrett, lead singer of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, became the show's permanent announcer in 2004. Also, there are no longer co-hosts.
  • Before Kimmel did his monologue on the platform in front of the stage (which was added on August 9, 2004, when the show debuted a new look with its current logo), he did his monologue when sitting behind the desk.
  • The show's outdoor stage was not used for its musical performances for six months, from February to August of 2004. Due to budget constraints, all of the performances were moved inside until the show signed on two sponsors (Sony and Coors) for the show's outdoor musical performances from August 9, 2004 through the end of that year.
  • Before the aforementioned outdoor stage was named the Pontiac Garage in 2005, it was named the Walkman Stage, due to the show's previous sponsorship with Sony for its outdoor concerts during the final five months of 2004.
  • On the June 21, 2005 episode of JKL, Jet performed on an outdoor stage in New York City's Times Square to help inaugurate the show's partnership with Pontiac for its concerts.
  • In the fall of 2006, Jimmy Kimmel Live dropped its longtime "Concert Series" sponsor, Coors (the show's primary "Concert Series" co-sponsor since 2004), leaving Pontiac as its sole sponsor. Pontiac had been the show's primary "Concert Series" co-sponsor (including naming rights to the show's outdoor stage in Hollywood) since 2005.
  • In the early episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel did not wear a tie. Since the summer of 2005, he started wearing ties, and ratings jumped.
  • Since March 6, 2007, the Jimmy Kimmel Live Concert Series powered by Pontiac has been seen entirely in the final segment of the show.
  • On every results show of Dancing With the Stars, Jimmy Kimmel explains a dance by him playing a man and his male, Hispanic, free parking attendant as a woman, usually in a dress or tutu. He explains the dance, grabs the attendant, and runs arouns with him. The parking attendant ends with, "You don't have to be a star to dance like one!"
  • The Santa Monica Big Blue Bus that was used in the Jimmy Kimmel Live on a Bus episode, which originally aired on May 15, 2007, was a New Flyer L40LF model LNG bus.
  • Originally aired live, hence Jimmy Kimmel Live, but began airing as a taped show in 2004, just like other late night talk shows, mostly due to its late broadcast time and indecency issues (see above).
