Jimmy Kimmel Live! will return to television on Monday (March 30) with remotely produced episodes. Host Jimmy Kimmel just dropped the news on Twitter and announced presidential candidate Joe Biden as his guest for tonight’s (March 25) abbreviated quarantine digital edition of the program.
Guests next week include: Samuel L Jackson, Jennifer Aniston, Jeff Tweedy, Grouplove and more. It has not been determined yet whether the show will move back to its regular 11:35 PM slot when it comes back with originals on ABC or will remain at 12:05 AM, following Nightline.
Kimmel returned with homemade “quarantine minilogue” online videos on Tuesday last week, shortly after production on all late-night shows had been shut down the previous weekend. Starting with a short topical monologue and remote celebrity interviews, Kimmel earlier this week was the first late-night host to introduce in-person interviews by chatting with comedian Bill Burr from across the street to comply with social distancing rules. (You can watch that installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live’s quarantine series below.)
I’ll post the video when it’s up. In the mean time, click here to donate and get involved with Biden’s campaign.
