June Squibb isn’t above using her age to get her ahead– or at least that’s the message the 84-year-old actress sent in a gag that aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. READ FULL STORY

Nathan Fielder, the comedian behind Dumb Starbucks, went on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to talk about his new business venture, Dumb Starbucks grande in hand.
Like any new business, Dumb Starbucks already has its struggles. While the store was operating completely legally thanks to parody law, the health department shut it down for selling coffee without a health permit. “What they don’t understand is, technically, legally speaking, we’re an art gallery, and the coffee we’re selling is considered the art, and art galleries don’t need health permits,” Fielder said. If the health department doesn’t buy this explanation, Fielder and company could face up to six months in jail. Talk about suffering for your “art.” READ FULL STORY
Matt Damon just can’t catch a break from Jimmy Kimmel. “Sincere apologies to Matt Damon; we ran out of time for him tonight,” he once ended an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!… and then ended multiple more shows like that, making the Oscar-winner the butt of a long-running joke.
Damon “took over” the show last year to get back at Kimmel, beginning his monologue with, “Welcome to tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Sucks.” He then asked the audience, “Is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?” Burn.
But the friendly feud continues. Last night, Kimmel welcomed the star-studded cast of The Monuments Men, including Damon. He introduced Damon last, saying, “I’m being told we have to bring out our next guest. Our next guest is an actor at best who only has one Oscar. He’s here because the band didn’t show up. Please welcome, the least of the Monuments Men, Matt Damon.”
Damon came out to find no seats available for him and when he asked about the lack of seating, Kimmel tried to ignore the request and continued interviewing the other actors. “Was he like this the whole time on the set?” he asked the rest of the cast, as Guillermo brought Damon a baby chair.
“Now a lot of people said Matt Damon didn’t have the chops to be, you know, acting-wise to be part of a group like this,” Kimmel said to George Clooney. Damon shot back, “Nobody said that, what are you talking about?” Clooney started to reply when Kimmel interrupted: “No, I didn’t expect an answer, I just wanted to get that on the record — that a lot of people said that.”
Clooney then gets in on the ragging, and Cate Blanchett even made a joke at the actor’s expense. When Kimmel pointed out that Blanchett shares most of her scenes with Damon, she commented, “I have great respect for the work of the Make-A-Wish foundation.” She then ruffled Damon’s hair, because no one can be mad at you if you ruffle their hair. Or maybe that just applies to Cate Blanchett.

Apparently we’re not the only ones tired of Charlie Sheen. In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night, Ashton Kutcher issued a public plea to Sheen: “Dude, shut the f*** up,” Kutcher said as he looked straight into the camera. “Like, enough already. Like it’s three years later and you’re still blowing me up on Twitter. Come on, dude! Really?”
By “three years later,” he means it’s been about three years since Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men and replaced by Kutcher. Turns out Kutcher wasn’t kidding about the tweets — Sheen posted this gem Jan. 6:

Fact #1: Jay Leno has been the most popular late night host in America for the majority of the past 19 years.
Fact #2: Comedians, Hollywood insiders, and laypeople alike just love hating on Leno, and have been doing so consistently for over 20 years.
Why? In their minds, the reasons are legion: Because he stole The Tonight Show from Johnny Carson’s rightful heir, David Letterman, way back in the early ’90s. Because he refused to simply retire when NBC tried to replace him with Conan O’Brien in 2009. Because his primetime Jay Leno Show tanked, sinking Conan’s Tonight Show before it had even really begun — and eventually forcing Conan to leave NBC for good. And most of all, because they say his jokes are broad, pandering, and eminently unfunny — which is a shame particularly because once upon a time, Leno had a reputation for being one of standup’s sharpest and edgiest comedians.
So as Leno prepares for his final few Tonight Shows, he finds himself in a unique position: More widely watched than any of his competitors, yet widely reviled by the majority of his peers. How widely, you ask? Let’s take a look back at the most notable jabs, slights, and straight-up insults famous people have aimed at Leno over the years — starting shortly after NBC revealed that he, rather than Letterman, would become Tonight‘s next host. (Insert “Jay takes it on the chin” joke here.)
Comparing Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel is like comparing “The Baby Bachelor” and the “Puppy Predictors” — adorable, fun, a little bit wrong, but mostly inevitable. However, the good news is that overall, 2013 was good to both hosts. Politically, it might have been a little better to Fallon considering his upcoming gig taking over Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show in 2014. But on a creative level, both late-night hosts brought their A game.
Fallon spent 2013 perfecting the art of getting celebrities to play ridiculously awesome games. From playing “Sticky Balls” with Channing Tatum to getting Ryan Reynolds to agree to a very wet game of war, Fallon was a master at making viral videos. Some of his many highlight include:
Who knew Sherlock was a fan of slow-burning, explicitly sexual hip-hop?
Well, that’s elementary, my dear Watson, especially when it comes to Jimmy Kimmel Live late night antics. Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch appeared on Kimmel last night and gave a dramatic reading of R. Kelly’s “Genius,” a song from the artist’s upcoming album Black Panties.
“I give you Emmy, Golden Globe, and BAFTA nominee, Benedict Cumberbatch,” announced Kimmel to an impenetrable wall of audience shrieks. It was a simple setup — the English actor sat only on a stool, bathed in a single light — you know, the better to let the lyrical greatness shine through.
“Go to sleep, and when we wake up, I’mma hit that thing again,” Cumberbatch reads.

Jimmy Kimmel revamps 'Thor' as a romantic comedy: 'Jane Foster was looking for love in all the wrong places'
Is Thor: The Dark World really just a sweet romantic comedy hidden beneath all that armor and Fabio hair?
Well that’s the new marketing campaign Jimmy Kimmel thinks Marvel ought to adopt, in order to get more women into the theaters when the Thor sequel opens Friday. On Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, he showed a trailer highlighting the plight of poor astrophysicist Jane Foster as “looking for love in all the wrong places” cut with Harlequin romance novel shots of Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) sculpted back. The best part? Kimmel changes the title to something Hugh Grant would surely approve of – Thor Actually.
Maybe Kimmel is onto something. Girl geeks want to find love too. At least highlighting the Marvel movie’s romantic stuff gives new meaning to “hammertime.”

ABC and Jimmy Kimmel have already apologized for airing a segment on Kimmel’s late night show that had a child suggest “Kill everyone in China” as a way to lower U.S. debt. (You can check out video of the segment here.)
Unsurprisingly, immediately tons of people were upset with the supposed-to-be-humorous suggestion, so much so that a WhiteHouse.gov petition asking the White House to shut down Jimmy Kimmel Live! has reached over 100,000 signatures since it was formed Oct. 19. READ FULL STORY
Oh, Jimmy Kimmel, you sneaky late night show host!
Kimmel held his third annual “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy” prank last week and created another video of your children in utter sadness and devastation, for your enjoyment of course.
His team received so many submissions that it took them a whole weekend to sift through through videos of crying children. Oh to be so young and precious that the sight of an empty pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket crumbles your world to Reese’s pieces. Some memorable bits? Inconsolable blond brothers wailing like banshees and rustling through tragically empty wrappers and a daughter whose tantrum is foiled by the force of gravity.
