Contemplating Kimmel’s Role at ABC

Oct 7, 2008  •  Post A Comment

ABC’s late-night show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” has never been as successful as it is today. The show regularly ties CBS’ “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” and is constantly gaining ground on NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” — all done with “Nightline” as its lead-in. Now, with rumors of Jay Leno being courted by ABC and the network’s decision to go with five game and reality show hosts for this year’s Emmys over its one late-night host, Entertainment Weekly asks, “Where’s the Jimmy Kimmel love?” A representative from ABC had this to say about the situation: “We remain committed to Jimmy. He’s fantastic, and he’s gaining momentum every night.”
