Jimmy Kimmel roasted ABC, which airs his “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” during the network’s upfront presentation, telling ad buyers that “everyone is full of shit except Mike Shaw,” the network’s head of ad sales, Television Week reports. As for ABC’s new shows, “we’re going to cancel about 90% of them,” Kimmel told the audience, the publication says. The New York Times says Kimmel’s dark-humored monologue led to some gasps and uneasy laughs among the ad buyers, although he also took some shots at his NBC rival, Jay Leno.
