People magazine is reporting that another late-night talk show host is dating one of his employees.

The host is Jimmy Kimmel, 41, who is dating Molly McNearney, 31, the co-head writer of his talk show, People reports.

The People report also says, "While the relationship may draw comparisons to David Letterman’s recent revelations, the insider says, "during work hours, they keep things professional.”

McNearney joined the staff of Kimmel’s show as an assistant to the executive producer in 2003, and was promoted to her current position in May 2008.

The People report also claims that the insider said that Kimmel and McNearney both "found themselves single" after Kimmel broke up with comic Sarah Silverman.

  1. Funny how activities that would get people fired in most other industries are simply looked at as OK in Television.
    I look forward to the first break-up among such couples whereby the person in the lesser position sues for harassment.
    How could say, Kimmel ever defend a harassment suit by McNearney were she to file one?
    All she would have to do is testify that she felt she had to continue the relationship to keep her job, and Kimmel would be toast.
    Certainly in any other corporate environment at the very least they’d be required to stop working together.
