What we learned when Shonda Rhimes went 'Behind the Scandalabra' -- VIDEO

Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes doesn’t want her political drama to be something you can watch while folding the laundry — she wants it to have your full attention. And Thursday’s surprise-packed season finale ensured that it would.

After the episode aired, Jimmy Kimmel turned Live! into Behind the Scandalabra – a special featuring Rhimes, who discussed the finale and gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the show. Among the highlights: a blooper reel that reveals Bellamy Young’s go-to word when she messes up a line is “fart,” and that Josh Malina was once pied by a crew member while filming a scene.

Disguised Drake gets insulted on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' -- VIDEO

Drake started from the bottom and now he’s here… in disguise, and asking people how they feel about Drake.

After the rapper was announced as this year’s ESPYs host, Jimmy Kimmel slapped a fake beard on him and sent him out to the streets of LA. There, Drake asked ignorant passersby questions about the event, which won’t happen until July – all for a twist on Kimmel’s Lie Witness News bit, this time called I Witness News.

Chupacabra saves Guillermo in Kimmel's last 'Scandal' spoof -- VIDEO

Thought Scandal couldn’t get any crazier? Well, Jimmy Kimmel aired the final segment of his telenovela Scandal spoof on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! – complete with a chupacabra appearance.

In this dramatic finale, Kimmel interrupts a conversation between Kerry Washington and Guillermo Rodriguez to point a gun at Rodriguez’s head — only for a chupacabra to run up behind the unsuspecting Kimmel and attack him. Afterwards, Washington and Rodriguez reflect on how weird the whole chupacabra thing was. As it turns out, it wasn’t actually a chupacabra — because apparently, even Escandalo has its limits.

Jimmy Kimmel airs viewers' best April Fools' Day pranks -- VIDEO

Jimmy Kimmel has played some pretty good pranks on unsuspecting victims. But for April Fools’ Day, he asked viewers to channel their own inner Ashton Kutcher and punk their loved ones.

Kimmel and his staffers compiled some of the best submissions for their latest YouTube challenge in the following clip. Looks like Kimmel fans have a penchant for torturing their children with false information, from the poor kid who thinks he won an awesome prize from Legoland to the little boy who thinks his Xbox has been sold.

Jimmy Kimmel pranks wannabe music snobs at SXSW -- VIDEO

Hipsters, beware — music festival-goers are becoming a favorite target of Jimmy Kimmel.

In front of an audience at SXSW in Austin last night — Jimmy Kimmel Live has been taping from the festival since Monday — the late-night host noted that “people who come to music festivals pride themselves on knowing who the new acts are, even if they don’t know who the new acts are.” To prove his point, Kimmel sent a “Lie Witness News” camera crew into the streets of Austin to ask music fans their thoughts on totally made up artists, including Contact Dermatitis, Neil Patrick Harassment, female rappers Heavy Flow, and a whole slew of geeky Game of Thrones-inspired bands, including Daenerys Targaryen and the Dragon Ponies.

Seth Rogen and Jimmy Kimmel find romance in 'True Detective 2' trailer -- VIDEO

Jimmy Kimmel’s never been one to pass up the opportunity to kiss Seth Rogen — and with the ending of True Detective‘s first season, he realized that such an opportunity was within his reach.

As fans of the show know, neither Matthew McConaughey nor Woody Harrelson will be back for the HBO show’s second season, which leaves the door open for some newcomers. Enter Rogen and Kimmel.

In Kimmel’s Austin-set trailer for True Detective 2, Rogen takes on the McConaughey-inspired, beard-ridden role of a man who once ate an entire Cosco-sized bottle of Tylenol PM. Meanwhile, Kimmel is the cleaned-up partner who can’t stop thinking about the person who once defaced a frog mural. Together, the cops enjoy quoting Cher and singing “Time After Time.” Oh, and kissing, obviously.

Watch Kimmel’s trailer for True Detective 2 below:

Rob Ford talks Toronto, his diet, and drinking too much on 'Jimmy Kimmel' -- VIDEO

When Toronto mayor Rob Ford decided to give out his real phone number to anyone who wanted it, Jimmy Kimmel had an idea. He called the mayor — and to his surprise, Ford picked up the phone. Even more surprising: Ford agreed to come on Kimmel’s show. And what happened next was just as uncomfortable to watch as it was entertaining.

Part one of Ford’s late-night appearance featured Ford reassuring his “customers” that if they called him, he would come. And “you’d be surprised how fast I can move.” Kimmel, for his part, cut right to the chase, asking Ford if he’s homophobic and insulting his awful tie selections:

Jimmy Kimmel pulls off Sochi wolf prank

And Sochi thought stray dogs were bad. American luger Kate Hansen tweeted a video of a wolf– yes, a real live wolf– roaming the hallway of her Sochi dorm and set off a media storm. But turns out Sochi doesn’t have a stray wolf problem (at least not that we know of) and resident late night prankster Jimmy Kimmel is actually the man behind it.

Hansen joined Jimmy Kimmel Live last night via Skype to reveal how the two pulled it off. “Honestly, there was a little bit more backlash than I thought there would be,” Hansen admitted. Apparently security beefed up because there was “a breach within athlete safety,” but they “handled it.”

So how’d they do it? Hansen sent Kimmel’s team a photo of her dorm hallway so they could build an entire replica of her hallway in the L.A. studio. Then they brought in a Timber Wolf mix named Rugby who played the role of stray wolf by roaming the fake hallway. Watch the entire clip below to see Kimmel’s interview with Hansen and the now-famous wolf: READ FULL STORY
