Jimmy Kimmel Dunks on His Critics in 20th Anniversary Show

Exactly 20 years since his late-night show premiered on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel delivers an epic primetime special in which he reflects on two decades of comedy and salutes. welcome back with the three guests he booked for the first episode after the Super Bowl: George Clooney, Snoop Dogg, and Coldplay.

“As soon as we got out of the gate, we were instantly successful,” he told the crowd before reading several of his post-launch reviews, including one calling it “the show.” Deadly conversation when it comes to an uncharacteristic host.” and another said it was “the sort of mess created by a sick newborn with a punctured diaper.”

“And those are the good reviews!” Kimmel joked. “Why these people at ABC hired me, I still don’t know.” Calling out some of the people who believed in him early on, he added, “You should all be fired for this. And, in fact, the two of you were fired for it. But thank you.”

He later said that “very few people expected us to get this far” and that there were “two reasons” why they finally did. “First, I made a very good deal with the devil, my soul is about to be roasted,” he joked. But the real reason, he explained, was all the “great people” on his staff, whom he took a few minutes to thank a lot.

“It takes a lot of people to do this silly thing,” Kimmel said. “And we’ve covered a lot of silly stuff over the last 20 years.” But how much they focused on Snooki and Sarah Palin, he pointed out, is also “allowed to use the platform to speak out about issues that are important to me, like healthcare.” and reasonable gun laws”.

“So in summary, I want to say to those of you who have been with us since the beginning — and those who have been involved along the way — thank you for your patience,” he said. he concluded. “I don’t know what I did to deserve it, but I appreciate it. I don’t take this for granted. And I promise that as long as I’m here, you’ll never have to see Matt Damon’s stupid face on this show.”

Then, thanks to the advent of non-existent technology in 2003, Kimmel gave the 35-year-old version of herself an update on everything that happened over the years.
