Jimmy Kimmel Makes Emotional Return… with a Surprise Guest!

Jimmy Kimmel made a triumphant, emotional and tear-filled return to late-night television on Monday.

After taking last week off because his child had a heart procedure, the comedian came out for his opening monologue yesterday with a very special guest:

His son, Billy!

“I was out last week – because this guy had heart surgery," Kimmel told his audience, his seven-month in his arms and tears in his eyes.

"But look he’s fine everybody, he may have pooped but he’s fine. Daddy cries on TV but Billy doesn’t… it’s unbelievable.”

Kimmel shared the story of Billy's health problems with viewers back in May.

He then became an advocate for universal health care, making it his mission to make sure kids everywhere – regardless of their parents' wealth – could afford the best care possible.

In this case, though, the only message Kimmel sent was about little Billy and how he's holding up these days.

“Billy is doing great, by the way. He has one more surgery – this is amazing – he had an operation a week ago," the host said, adding:

"They say he’ll probably on track to win at least a bronze medal at the Olympics in 2036.”

Billy was born in April.

He underwent his first surgery just days later because he wasn't getting enough oxygen, the doctors explained at the time.

After giving a heartfelt speech about his son and pushing for a better health care system, Kimmel found himself at the center of a political debate.

But he held his ground. He continued his fight.

And, most importantly, so did little Billy.

Watch the adorable toddler and his father make all late-night viewers cry now:

Kim Kardashian Reads a Kanye Mean Tweet to Jimmy Kimmel!

We all love those "celebrities read mean tweets" segments that Jimmy Kimmel does. Honestly, we sometimes wonder if some of the hateful tweets are really just attempts to get on TV.

Well, to celebrate Jimmy Kimmel's birthday, the show put together mean tweets about Jimmy Kimmel — giving him a taste of his own medicine — and had his various celebrity friends read them to him.

There are a lot of gems, here. But what might be the best one is Kim Kardashian reading a mean tweet about Jimmy … written by Kanye West.

Kimmel mean tweets chris hemsworth

Ray Romano is Kimmel's birthday guest, and the tweet that he read was:

"Jimmy Kimmel needs a kick to his d–k hole."

That would take some impressive aim.

Michael Keaton, one of those rare actors who's played both a superhero and supervillain (Batman and also The Vulture), read the first of many tweets that shame Jimmy's appearance.

"I thought I saw Jimmy Kimmel @ Home Depot. Turns out it was just a sloppy dude with big dimples."

That's not actually one of the meaner ones.

Halle Berry, who is looking jaw-droppingly gorgeous as always, reads: 

"@jimmykimmel you are a jackass d–k sucker keep your mouth shut and do your little Tv show or get the f–k out of our country."

That bit of nuanced opinionating sounds political in nature.

Blackish star (and former Law & Order star) Anthony Anderson shared a strangely introspective hateful tweet:

"@jimmykimmel you represent everything I hate about myself. You bloated douche bag."

Controversial radio host Howard Stern jumps in, after wondering how he managed to get roped into doing this bit:

"Is Jimmy Kimmel crosseyed or just ridiculously ugly?"

He dismisses that particular mean tweet as "stupid." He's right.

David Spade seems a little too enthusiastic as he reads:

"@jimmykimmel go suck a gorilla d–k u dumb fatass."

Honestly, all that we can think about when we see David Spade is his feud with Danielle Bregoli.

Kimmel mean tweets larry david

Chris Hemsworth reads a backhanded compliment, though he's distracting in his handsomeness … and in that he trips over one word.

"@jimmykimmel is a comedy god. Like a deformed, lame, hideous god, such as ancient Greece's Hephaestus. But that ugly bozo was still a god."

As you'll see in the video below, Chris really struggles with the name Hephaestus. Way more than anyone should, since most people learn about the Olympians in elementary school. Maybe not in Australia?

(Since Thor: Ragnarok was absolutely incredible and probably the best MCU film to date, we'll give Chris a pass on that)

Speaking of stars of excellent media, Kristen Bell reads a tweet that body-shames Jimmy Kimmel in more ways than one:

"@jimmykimmel R u kidding me w that flabby body? What the f–k – get 2 the gym man. Do u really shave ur pits??? Scary!"

That's rude. Also hair-removal doesn't have to be gender-based.

(You know she's starring on The Good Place, which was so good that I binged the first season in one day … whoops)

Kimmel mean tweets jon stewart

Jon Stewart, who's not doing much recently other than getting roasted by Kathy Griffin on Twitter over his response to the Louis C.K. revelations, reads:

"Jimmy Kimmel is that same fat kid from Win Ben Stein's Money who grew up to become that fat kid from Win Ben Stein's Money."


Larry David's might be the funniest (as you'll see, he just about loses it) but also one of the meanest:

"This is going to sound fantastic, but I forgot Jimmy Kimmel's name so I googled 'Ugly late night talk show host' and I got him, top link."

Kimmel mean tweets kim kardashian

There are plenty of others, including actors Liam Neeson and Jennifer Lawrence and convicted rapist Mike Tyson.

But who really got our attention was Kim Kardashian.

Most of these stars were reading tweets from random, quasi-anonymous internet strangers.

Kim Kardashian, however, was reading a tweet from a fellow celebrity … who is also her husband.

Kanye West's words, as read by Kim:


Kim seems to think that it's a fair point.

Jimmy Kimmel Cries, Slams Congress, Pushes for Gun Control

Jimmy Kimmel better be careful.

He's in danger of becoming more known for his heart than his humor.

Several days after the comedian dedicated multiple monologues to slamming a proposed health care bill, the talk show host once again grew emotional on stage while talking about this week's massacre in Las Vegas.

Kimmel hails from that city.

And a shooter opened up late Sunday night on attendees at a country music festival, killing nearly 60 people and injuring over 500 others.

“Here we are again in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicable, shocking, and painful tragedy, this time in Las Vegas, which happens to be my hometown,” Kimmel said to open his show on Monday, tears forming in his eyes immediately.

“It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to throw up or give up. It’s too much to even process, all of these devastated families who now have to live with this pain forever.”

He then asked:

"Why is that allowed? I don’t know why our so-called leaders continue to allow this to happen. Or maybe better question: why do we continue to allow them to let it happen?"

In response to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying this was NOT the time to discuss gun control, Kimmel shot back:

"I don’t know, we have 59 innocent people dead, it wasn’t their time either, so I think now is the time for political debate.”

Seth Meyers and James Corden also called on politicians to put lives before money last night, but Kimmel stands out for the emotion he conveyed and the surprisingly important voice he has become in these difficult times.

Earlier this year, Republicans in Congress voted to make it easier for the mentally ill to purchase guns.

They will soon vote on legislation that makes it easier to purchase and use silencers. At one point, politicians pushed for alleged terrorists on the No Fly List to legally own guns.

All of this despite the extreme majority of Americans being for background checks and other gun control measures.

Mere thoughts and prayers are hollow and meaningless at this point, Kimmel said.

Referring to Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, he added:

“They should be praying – they should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country because it’s so crazy… lawmakers won’t do anything about this because the NRA has their balls in a money clip.”

“I want this to be a comedy show, I hate talking about stuff like this,” Kimmel concluded on Monday.

“I just want to laugh about things every night, but it seems to be becoming increasingly difficult lately.

"It feels like someone has opened a window into hell. What I’m talking about tonight isn’t about gun control – it’s about common sense.

"Common sense says no good will ever come from allowing a person to have weapons that can take down 527 Americans at a concert…

"Something needs to be done already. Tell your Congress people to do something. It’s not enough to send your love and prayers."

Impressive stuff. Watch the full monologue now:

Jimmy kimmel breaks down slams congress pushes for gun control

Jimmy Kimmel Just Obliterated Brian Kilmeade

Jimmy Kimmel makes a living by making jokes.

But he's made a name for himself of late by taking a serious stance when it comes to health insurance in America.

This is because Kimmel's son underwent open heart surgery over the summer and the talk show host has since been vocal about how one's financial situation should not dictate whether one's child receives the best medical care possible.

This brings up to the latest proposal by members of the U.S. Senate to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a bill that does not always cover individuals for their pre-existing conditions.

Without boring readers regarding the details of this bill, allow us to say this:

It would raise premiums and it would take away insurance from over 20 million people.

On Tuesday night, Kimmel zeroed in on how the bill would also implement lifetime caps on coverage and discriminate based on preexisting conditions.

In response to his critique, Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy appeared on CNN on Wednesday and told Chris Cuomo that Kimmel simply “does not understand” the legislation.

“Oh, I get it. I don’t understand because I’m a talk show host, right?” Kimmel asked, sarcastically.

Then, after listing over a dozen major health care organizations that “vehemently oppose the bill,” Kimmel suggested that maybe the problem is that “I do understand, and you got caught with your G-O-Penis out."

Because Cassidy was actually a recent guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host continued as follows:

“I don’t want to turn this into a Kanye-and-Taylor-Swift-type situation, but when Senator Cassidy was on my show in May, he told me that he believed that every American family regardless of income should be able to get quality health care, and I believed he was sincere.

"Sadly, the bill he unveiled last week with Senator Lindsey Graham indicates that he was not sincere. It is, by many accounts, the worst health care bill yet."

From there, Kimmel took umbrage with Fox & Friends‘ co-host Brian Kilmeade, who referred to the late-night host as a Hollywood elitist pushing his political agenda on the rest of the country.

Take it away, Jimmy!

“The reason I found this comment to be particularly annoying is because this is a guy who, whenever I see him, kisses my ass,”

"Oh, he’s such a fan… He follows me on Twitter; he asked me to write a blurb for his book, which I did; he calls my agent looking for projects. He’s dying to be a member of the Hollywood elite.

"The only reason he’s not a member of the Hollywood elite is because nobody will hire him to be one.

"And you know, the reason I’m talking about this is because my son had an open-heart surgery, then has to have two more, and because of that I learned that there are kids with no insurance in the same situation.

"I don’t get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep.”

Donald Trump Voters Have THIS to Say About Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel brought his own version of fire and fury to ABC on Tuesday night.

In response to President Trump refusing to condemn and disavow White Supremacists who gathered in Charlottesville over the weekend, Kimmel unleashed his harshest critique yet on Trump.

And on his voters as well.

"The president is completely unhinged," Kimmel said earlier this week. "The wheels are off the wagon and hurtling toward the moon right now."

As you might expect, a certain segment of the American population was unhappy with Kimmel over his rebuke of Trump.

And then they let him know it via social media.

“I really think I made a breakthrough and I base that on all the thoughtful responses I got on Twitter and Facebook," Kimmel joked last night about the feedback his monologue generated.

He then went on to quote some dude named Thomas who wrote: "Why don’t you go somewhere else like a different country if you don’t like our president and stop you’re crying on TV snowflake."

This gave Kimmel an idea:

Why not do a version of his Celebrities Read Mean Tweets sketch… only the celebrity is himself!

And the Tweets are all from Donald Trump supporters!

“I want to thank everyone for the feedback,” Kimmel said, adding:

“And it just goes to show you that if you try to understand where people are coming from, and talk to them like human beings, they will open up.

"You just have to communicate.”

Considering one Internet user referred to Kimmel as a "whining baby," we think he was being sarcastic with this comment.

But click PLAY on the video below to get an idea of how some viewers are feeling about Jimmy Kimmel these days.

Jimmy Kimmel Slams Trump: The President Is a Total Disaster!

As you've no doubt heard by now, Donald Trump stunned the world yesterday when he defended the actions of the white supremacist hate groups that engaged in violent protests and deadly acts of terrorism in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

Most public figures have condemned the president's words, but shockingly, several say they're still in his corner.

We think it's safe to say Jimmy Kimmel is squarely in the former camp.

After joking that he would rather have Game of Thrones despot Cersei Lannister in charge of the country, Kimmel informed the crowd that what was supposed to be a press conference about infrastructure quickly turned into Trump offering "an impassioned defense of white supremacy."

"It would be like if your book club meeting turned into a cockfight," Kimmel told his audience.

Kimmel remains a comedian first and foremost, but he's clearly concerned by Trump's latest actions, and he addressed them in a more serious tone than we're accustomed to seeing from the late night host.

"The president is completely unhinged," Kimmel said.

"The wheels are off the wagon and hurtling toward the moon right now."

Kimmel made an attempt to understand the mindset of Trump voters, saying:

"You didn’t want business as usual — nothing ever seems to get done, it’s always the same, these candidates make a lot of promises that go nowhere. It happens over and over again… and you’re sick of it."

He added:

“And then this guy shows up riding down a golden escalator — he’s not a part of the political establishment; in fact, he’s the opposite of that… Let’s roll the dice. Let him get in there and run the country like a business.”

The host then rattled off a list of Trump's most egregious policies and errors (the Muslim ban, "playing chicken with Kim Jong Un," etc.) before informing the president's supporters that they chose "the wrong guy."

Kimmel's not the first late night host to bash Trump this week, but his take-down is a doozy,

Jimmy Kimmel Gives Update on Infant Son After Heart Surgery

You’re going to want to hold onto something for this one, friends.

Some tissues, your cat, your butt … something.

Because you’re going to need some kind of support to deal with how cute this new update on Jimmy Kimmel’s baby boy is.

As you’ll surely remember, Jimmy opened up about his son in a heartbreaking speech he made on his talk show back in May.

The boy, Billy, was born on April 21st, and as he explained, “He appeared a normal, healthy baby.”

But then, about three hours later, he said that “A very attentive nurse at Cedars-Sinai heard a murmur in his heart and noticed he was a bit purple, which is not common.”

From there, the medical staff figured out that “he wasn’t getting enough oxygen in his blood, either in his heart or lungs.”

He said it was “a terrifying thing,” and we can certainly believe it.

Eventually, a heart surgeon came in to explain that little Billy was born with a congenital heart disease, one that had created “a hole in the wall of the left and right side of his heart.”

The poor little newborn had to have surgery to repair the holes, and he’ll eventually need another, but he’s expected to be just fine.

It was a tough story to hear, to say the least.

But now, Billy is three months old.

And in some new photos that Jimmy and his wife, Molly McNearney, shared on Twitter, he looks like a happy, healthy baby!

“Billy is 3 months old & doing great,” Jimmy wrote. “Thnx for the love & support.”

He also added a simple enough request to “Please remind your Congresspeople that every kid deserves the care he got.”

For Molly’s update, she wrote “Billy’s looking out for a lot of his buddies at Children’s Hospital. Remind your Congresspeople to protect them.”

First of all, Billy is just painfully adorable, isn’t he?

Seriously, just an insanely cute little baby.

And second of all, it’s not surprising that they’re pushing their followers to contact Congress about healthcare issues — in Jimmy’s monologue, he did the same thing.

Then, he pointed out that before Obama put his healthcare plan into place, “if you were born with a congenital heart disease like my son was, there’s a good chance you’d never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition.”

“If your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not even live long enough to get denied because of your pre-existing condition.”

He insisted that “if your baby is going to die and it doesn’t have to, it shouldn’t matter how much money you make.”

“No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life. It just shouldn’t happen. Not here.”

He’s not wrong.

It’s clear that Billy’s birth and the problems he experienced really inspired Jimmy, who’s always been outspoken about politics, even before, to use his voice to urge others to stand up for what’s right.

And seeing Billy’s precious little face, it’s easy to understand why he feels so moved.


Caitlyn Jenner Calls Out Jimmy Kimmel for Jokes About Her: WATCH!

If Caitlyn Jenner plans to run for public office, she's going to have to develop a thick skin when it comes to criticism. Especially since a lot of her political views kind of suck.

But what she shouldn't have to put up with are vile jokes about her gender or any jab related to the fact that she's transgender.

So we were glad to see her call out Jimmy Kimmel — right to his face — for jokes that he's made in the past. You'll see that, and Jimmy's apology, in the video below.

Caitlyn jenner and jimmy kimmel

To be fair, the sorts of jokes cracked by late night hosts like Jimmy Kimmel came about before the public even knew Caitlyn's real name or that she was transgender.

People were just wondering "huh what's going on?"

And then jokes ensued.

Kind of like how everybody made jokes about Amanda Bynes' once-infamous behavior before the world learned that she was suffering from genuine mental illness.

(Thus forever ruining a lot of Penelope Taynt jokes that referred to Amanda Bynes' work on Nickelodeon)

Caitlyn jenner for sirius

Jokes that people like Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon (enough with the "Jimmies" hosting late night, please, this is almost like blond superhero actors named Chris) weren't intended to be vicious towards a trans woman.

They're not like Blac Chyna's mom's transphobic rant or Rob Kardashian's dumbass transphobic "jab" at Kris Jenner.

(Seriously, you think that Rob can't sink any lower and then he goes and misgenders a member of his own family — in an effort to insult his mom)

But in retrospect, knowing that Caitlyn is trans — one of the most famous transgender women in the world, if not necessarily the most loved — makes jokes about cosmetic surgeries or anything about her appearance … not cool.

And Caitlyn brings it up.

Caitlyn jenner in golf cart

"It had been hammered all over the media for the longest time. In fact, guys like you, making some jokes," Caitlyn says in the video below.

Jimmy seems a little flustered and, appropriately, a little embarrassed.

"Right, but we didn’t know what was happening! We thought you were just vain. Sorry about that, by the way."

That might not sound sincere, but the way that he says it in the video did sound like he meant it.

Now, again, people are free to make fun of Caitlyn's awful views as much as they like.

They are not free to joke about the fact that she's trans.

Kind of like how you can disagree with President Obama's policies or views, but bringing his race into things is inexcusable.

Remember — trans women are murdered every month of every year, usually by people they know.

Transphobic jabs at Caitlyn Jenner further a culture of transphobia, and that can put real lives at further risk.

Caitlyn jenner and her memoir

They cover other topics, including Caitlyn's faith and lingering questions, as you'll see.

And you know, say what you will about her politics, but at least Caitlyn Jenner agrees that O.J. Simpson did it.

That's more than we can say for a shocking number of people.

Still, in 2017.

Anyway, watch Caitlyn get a long-overdue apology:

Jimmy Kimmel Predicts The Bachelorette Final Three: Is He Right?!

The Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay has found her soulmate, and having watched just one episode, Jimmy Kimmel thinks he knows who!

Having obviously not read The Bachelorette spoilers whatsoever, the ABC host made his predictions for this season last night …

… with Rachel in the hot seat!

The 31-year-old Dallas attorney's JOURNEY for love had just begun when she sat down with Kimmel to discuss the popular show Monday.

She gushed about her fiance, and spoke about how rare it is for the show to reveal that she got engaged before the season even began.

“It’s a season of firsts,” she joked.

The first African-American lead in the franchise's storied history said ABC actually encouraged her to spill the big news, as well.

She said that the shot-callers at the network told her “You know, you’re so excited. You’re glowing. Just do it.” And so she did!

But who is the lucky guy!?

Well, those who follow Jimmy Kimmel know he's a huge Bachelor and Bachelorette fan who always handicaps the season early on.

He makes his predictions with help from his wife Molly McNearny and again, zero Bachelorette spoilers in any way, shape form!

Just by watching the first episode, he said that personal trainer Eric Bigger, 29, will be one of the last men standing this summer.

Why? “You seem really into him, He seems smart and level-headed. Eric will make it to the final three,” Kimmel told Lindsay.

Jimmy also singled out Dr. Brian Abasolo, who "got the first impression rose and you french kissed him. He’s Colombian, that’s exciting."

"Brian will be in the final two.”

He's fairly certain of this, all from watching The Bachelorette season premiere. They did have a connection, that much is beyond dispute.

And the third contender?!

“And finally, his name is Peter."

"You both have gaps in the front of your teeth,” Jimmy noted, saying that the two would make beautiful babies together, adding:

"You gave him a look when he got out of the limo that is the same look women get on their face when they see a pair of shoes they really love."

The rest, as they say, is history.

“You are engaged to Peter, true or false?” Jimmy confidently asked Rachel, who just smiled and shrugged her shoulders in response.

Will Peter Kraus, 31, become her fiance as Kimmel somehow guessed, without any sort of help from spoilers on the Internet?

Time will tell, but man, his track record is great in recent years. He always nails it somehow! How does this superfan do it!?

Jimmy kimmel predicts the bachelor final three is he right
