Watch Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Jimmy Kimmel Live! is ABC's late-night show, the format of which is similar to late-night shows featuring Jay Leno, David Letterman and Conan O'Brien. It airs at 12 a.m. eastern every weekday night and is hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, creator of the show who previously appeared on Win Ben Stein's Money and The Man Show. Jimmy Kimmel Live! is one of the most successful late-night talk shows on television; it is also one of the few to have experienced any kind of substantial longevity. It first aired in 2003 and continues to attract around 2 million viewers nightly.

The show owes much of its popularity to its hilariously original sketches. While many other late-night shows features similar segments, Kimmel's history as a comedian and actor give his sketches a notably superior quality. One of Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s most well-known segments is "This Week in Unnecessary Censorship," in which Kimmel takes news clips and videos from the week and censors the speech to make it appear as though people are saying outrageous things. The sketch is intended to be a mockery of the FCC's censorship regulations.

Much of the time for each 60 minute show is taken up by interviews with actors, musicians and various other celebrities. Kimmel has made a habit of often signing his show off with an apology to Matt Damon for lack of time, the meaning of which some viewers of the show have been left confused about. The bit has turned into a running joke of sorts, for when Damon finally appeared on the show after this had started, Kimmel immediately apologized and told him that the show had run out of time. Other distinguished past guests include Mark Cuban, Scarlett Johansson, and Kristen Stewart, just to name a few.

Another popular feature of the show is the character Guillermo, who has been fully integrated into the show after giving good performances in the show's early comedy sketches. Guillermo now appears on the show more regularly than any other supporting cast member and even has several sketches designed specifically for him, most notably "Guillermo's Hollywood Roundup." His sometimes childish innocence proves him an extremely likable and charming character to every audience.

While Jimmy Kimmel Live! itself has yet to win any late-night talk show awards, its host has won a Daytime Emmy for previous work in television. Jimmy Kimmel is also slated to host the 2012 Emmy Awards in September.
