Cecil the Lion monologue

Makes Statement

Kimmell chokes up near the end of a monologue on the killing of Cecil the Lion. After explaining the events surrounding the lion’s death to the audience he says:

The big question is: Why are you shooting a lion in the first place? I mean, I’m honestly curious to know why a human being would feel compelled to do that. How is that fun? Is it that difficult for you to get an erection that you need to kill things that are stronger than you? If that’s the case, they have a pill for that. It works great. Just stay home and swallow it, and you save yourself a lifetime of being the most hated man in America who never advertised JELL-O Pudding on television.

And, by the way, I’m not against hunting. If you’re hunting to eat, or to help keep the animal population healthy, or it’s part of your culture or something, that’s one thing. But if you’re some a-hole dentist who wants a lion’s head over the fireplace in his man cave so his douchebag buddies can gather around it and drink scotch and tell him how awesome he is, that’s just vomitous.

He also encourages viewers to donate to Wild Cru (http://www.wildcru.org/) the organization that was tracking Cecil.

Nearly detained in Thailand

Makes Statement

Wilson tells Kimmel that he is nearly detained in Thailand while on his way back to the U.S. from filming an action thriller No Escape.

The day that I was leaving, somebody asked for a picture and gave me something to put around my neck… I guess this thing that I put on identified me with the rebels – I’m not kidding. All of a sudden, they (authorities) were calling the prime minister’s office saying that I was going to be detained from leaving (sic) because these colors and that whistle meant that I was siding with the protesters.

Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance

TV Appearance

Kimmel demands his guests Kaitlyn and Shawn make a solemn pledge, guaranteeing that their relationship was for real, and won’t end in another broken engagement.

We, Katilyn and Shawn B, do solemnly swear, that we are in love, that we will get married, or we will at least be together one year from today, because if we’re not, this was a huge waste of everyone’s time. If we are not still in a committed relationship on July 27, 2016, we will pay Jimmy Kimmel $1,000 which he may collect in a lump sum or over the next 30 years in monthly installments of $2.77! Amen.

‘Fuller House’ confirmed

Interview

Stamos confirms that Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of a Full House spin-off to be called Fuller House. The focus of the series is on:

. . . veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller pregnant and recently widowed, living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler, along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys – the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max – and her soon-to-arrive baby.

As big fans of the original Full House, we are thrilled to be able to introduce Fuller House’s new narrative to existing fans worldwide, who grew up on the original, as well as a new generation of global viewers that have grown up with the Tanners in syndication.

Explains Oscar name flub

On Jimmy Kimmel Live’s post Oscar show, Travolta finally explains the reason for flubbing Idina Menzel’s name at the 2014 Oscars. His excuses: he ran into Goldie Hawn backstage which got him off track, the prompter put the name onscreen in a phonetic form, and his 15 minutes to speak became one minute and 15 seconds.

She’s had one of the best years of her career, and she gives me credit!

Travolta also acknowledged his awkward reunion with Menzel at this year’s Oscars:

Apparently, I played with her chin too much.

Garth Brooks interview

Interview

Brooks discusses why he took a break from releasing albums on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The greatest gift I’ve ever been given by God and the people was the time allotted just to stay home and raise my babies, I got to know ‘em inside and out, which when I came off the road, to tell you the truth, I didn’t. I didn’t know my own children. I know them now,trust me, more than they like or more than I’m comfortable with

Edward Norton interview

Interview

Norton appears as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live and talks about his experience as the very first Uber passenger.

I met Travis, who started Uber, back when it was still kind of this funky little experiment in San Francisco, and I was super-impressed by what he was doing. As someone who’s had a long-standing antipathy and occasional physical battle with New York cab drivers, I begged him to bring it to New York City. Begged him, literally.

Portia de Rossi interview

Interview

de Rossi appears as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live and talks about rumors about having children with Ellen DeGeneres, her parenting skills, and Ellen being the favored aunt among her nieces and nephews.

It’s just one big rumor that doesn’t seem to go away. And at this point, I feel like I’m disappointing the whole of America — not just my mother.

So I land in New York coming back from Ireland, where I’m visiting my girl. In Ireland you drink whiskey, so I’d been drinking a lot of whiskey.
