On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Brad Paisley, country music’s leading funny man (sorry, Blake Shelton), debuted his new theme song for TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Watch it below. The whip was a nice touch. READ FULL STORY

Everybody, absolutely everybody, knows that at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights, Will Ferrell and Ryan Gosling come to Hollywood Boulevard’s El Capitan Theatre to shoot their QVC slice-and-sell show Knife Guys.
Well, everybody except Jimmy Kimmel, whose own show — also shot at the El Capitan — began airing 25 minutes earlier this week. Kimmel didn’t even have the decency to check the theater’s sign-in sheet before he began recording last night’s installment — which led to a pretty awkward encounter with Ferrell and Gosling, all done up in their finest Knife Guys t-shirts (and some really excellent facial hair). But hey, look on the bright side: Maybe this means that every Wednesday, Will Ferrell and Ryan Gosling are going to show up on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
See the sparks — as well as Ferrell’s Stabmaster 2200 samurai sword — fly in the video below:
As the old showbiz saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it — and if it works at midnight, it’ll probably work at 11:35 p.m.” So it’s no surprise that last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live — the first episode to air directly opposite The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Show with David Letterman — didn’t exactly reinvent the wheel.
That said, the 64-minute show featured plenty of memorable moments. Take, for example, this montage of celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves — a bit that hasn’t lost its punch even though it’s been done before. Bonus points for Bryan Cranston’s hilarious/terrifying contribution:
Jimmy Kimmel moves his late night show to 11:35 tonight, and we’re excited to see what the host has in store for the new time. But for now, we’ll just reminisce with some of our favorite moments from his midnight timeslot. See them below!
Jimmy Kimmel has been anything but shy about his animosity toward Jay Leno over the years, but exactly how deeply he dislikes the Tonight Show host is made evident in a recent article by Rolling Stone.
In the magazine’s cover story, Kimmel — whose late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live will find itself in direct timeslot competition with Leno and David Letterman starting Jan. 8 — is quoted as saying a host of harsh comments about Leno, with whom he has publicly panned in the past.

Did Samuel L. Jackson really lob an f-bomb on Saturday Night Live last weekend — or did he actually just say “fuh,” like he’s asserted since the incident?
Judging by video from the live telecast, it sure sounds like there was a “k” after that “fuh” — but according to the curse-happy actor, the only reason we’re questioning him is because SNL cast member Kenan Thompson didn’t cut him off fast enough during the sketch. (Warning: Sensitive language ahead, naturally.)
The Twitterverse can finally stop buzzing about Eric Stonestreet’s “boozy” American Music Awards appearance! The Modern Family star cleared the air on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, declaring “I was not drunk, I was tipsy. There’s a difference.”
After Jimmy Kimmel played a clip of his presentation speech, Stonestreet second-guessed himself. “Boy, that’s the first time I saw it and wow, is that guy drunk or what?”

As President Barack Obama concluded his last day of campaigning, Robert Pattinson sat down with Jimmy Kimmel last night in one of his final Twilight promotional appearances. Pattinson noted that he first learned about the president during his first promotional tour for the franchise when Obama was running for his first term in office. If only Pattinson was up for four more years as well.
The British heartthrob stayed true to his quirky talk-show persona by discussing shoes, skydiving, and loud kissing — a notable upgrade from his last Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance in late August when he talked about Craigslist, dogging, and prostate exams.
The dapper star opened the interview by talking about his over-sized shoes. He then tucked his legs underneath him in the armchair and later sat cross-legged to distract the audience from their size. When Kimmel asked how he was able to walk in his “clown shoes,” Pattinson said the task was daunting. “I just had a little bit of vodka backstage. It is not a good combination.”

Watching Jimmy Kimmel interview David Letterman last night was sort of like seeing a space-obsessed teenager interview Neil Armstrong in 1970. Kimmel’s vast admiration for the late night vet is no secret — he’s spoken often about how Letterman inspired him to pursue a career in television. Dave-love even drove a teenage Kimmel to get a vanity license plate that read “L8 NITE” — and to have a Late Night-themed cake at his 18th birthday party.
Put simply, Letterman is Kimmel’s idol. And accordingly, Kimmel spent most of the interview half-joking about how badly he wants to be Letterman’s best friend. Over the course of 18-ish minutes, Kimmel did his best to convince Letterman that they share common interests and invited the famously curmudgeonly comedian to join him for several activities — fly fishing, barbecuing, a party “just [for] the two of us.”
And Letterman — who freely admits that he doesn’t really have friends, since “people don’t like [him]“– took the whole thing in stride. The Late Night host tossed out a self-deprecating remark every time Kimmel praised him, occasionally lobbing back a few genial barbs without ever outright calling Kimmel creepy. READ FULL STORY
