There's something comforting and pleasurable about watching people win money.
Kimmel quotes
He's a very driven, very focused and very dedicated guy, and it's basically like a dictatorship working with him. He's not scared to tell you that your idea sucks.
Kimmel
But you have to recognize the fact that, critically, Jimmy is great at what he does, and I think he's doing some of the best comedy in late night. I'm a very big fan.




Kimmel Jimmy quotes
"To be perfectly honest with you, ABC picks you to do this and then the machine goes into action and you shoot promos. But I'm still sitting in my bedroom at home going, 'Jeez, I don't know if I can do this. I don't know if I'm going to be able to do it.' And it's a weird situation to be in. And I guess we'll all find out.
Kimmel Jimmy
I don't believe that lack of intelligence and appreciation for lowbrow comedy go hand-in-hand necessarily.
Jimmy Kimmel quotes
We've always known Jimmy's had a great deal of raw talent. It's exciting watching him use that talent to become such a dynamic and gifted late night host. The sky is the limit for Jimmy and this show.
Jimmy Kimmel
We use puppets because they can get away with more.
Kimmel Jimmy quotes
I'm not seen as classy enough to host the Oscars.
Kimmel
I'm on the Internet a lot more than I watch TV and most everybody I know is, and yet if you watch most late-night talk shows, it's as if it doesn't even exist. So the Internet, it's just something I wanted to make use of in some way. I was fascinated by what appeared to be a child singing this song. It just struck me as funny.
Kimmel Jimmy
I'm excited, but I am also realistic. I have seen what happened to the people who came before me and failed. It's an unforgiving arena to be in.
Jimmy Kimmel
We're going to give men what they really want to see on TV. Monkeys, midgets, beer drinking and women jumping on trampolines.




Jimmy Kimmel quotes
I believe that David Letterman is the greatest talk show host that ever hosted a talk show. He'd be the last person to say that and he'd probably be horrified to hear that, but I really do believe that. Anything I do, I feel, is a pale imitation at best of what he does. I just try to do whatever I can not to imitate him, because that is the inclination when you idolize somebody, when you watch the show every night growing up as a kid.
Jimmy Kimmel
We wanted to figure out a way to get crank phone calls on television. Watching someone on TV talking on a phone isn't that entertaining, and obviously we couldn't send a camera crew around to the people getting the calls, so it was limited to either animation or puppets. And puppets seemed halfway between cartoons and people, so that seemed like the most real way that we could do it.
Kimmel quotes
There were a lot of people who didn't think we'd get to this milestone.
