Jimmy Kimmel serves as host and executive producer of the eight-time Emmy Award-nominated "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," ABC's longest-running late-night talk show. Now in its 18th season, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" produces some of the most popular comedy bits in late-night television and features a diverse lineup of guests including actors, musicians, athletes, comedians, authors, politicians, and newsmakers. "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" airs weeknights at 11:35/10:35 p.m. ET.

Kimmel recently hosted and was an executive producer of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire"'s prime-time return to ABC, featuring celebrity contestants playing for charity, 20 years after its original series debut starring Regis Philbin. The show was recently picked up for another season by ABC. 

In December 2019, Kimmel released a children's book titled "The Serious Goose," which he wrote and illustrated. Published by Random House Children's Books, "The Serious Goose" is a New York Times bestseller, and all of Jimmy's proceeds from its sales donated to Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and children's hospitals around the country. 

Outside of his "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" duties, Kimmel has hosted some of the biggest events and moments in pop culture. Kimmel was the host of the Oscars® for two years in a row, a role for which he received wide critical acclaim.
