Jimmy Kimmel gets parenting advice from a very serious little kid

On Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel returned to late-night television after a two-week hiatus surrounding the birth of his daughter Jane. He showed off photos of the newborn on TV, before seguing into some of his regularly scheduled jokes. But maybe Kimmel—who also has two children from a previous marriage—realized his parenting skills were a little rusty, because on Tuesday night he revealed his new baby consultant.

Fred Willard isn't pleased with Jimmy Kimmel's proposed Redskins name change

The bottom line about the Washington Redskins, according to Jimmy Kimmel: “We got used to [the name] because it’s been around for a long time, but it’s a racial slur.” Wednesday, however, may have marked the beginning of the end. That’s when the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled the team’s trademarks for being offensive to Native Americans. Naturally, the team plans to appeal the decision—but if it’s upheld, the embattled franchise could lose control of its brand.

Thankfully, Kimmel has an easy fix: Just add an “f” in front of the word “Redskins,” officially changing the team’s name to the “Fredskins.” There; that’s not offensive to anybody, right? READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel gets basketball stars to respond to haters on NBA-themed 'Mean Tweets'

All’s fair in love, war, and basketball — but that’s not always true on Twitter.

Jimmy Kimmel brought back his popular “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” segment on Sunday night, but with an NBA twist. In the segment, timed to game 5 of the finals, Kimmel brought on basketball stars such as Dwight Howard and Jeremy Lin to respond in person to the insults they’ve received online.

50 Cent parodies 'Maleficent' in faux Disney trailer -- VIDEO

Maleficent, 50 Cent — it’s a match made in pun heaven.

The rapper stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to premiere a trailer for what he jokingly called his latest project, a spoof on Disney film Maleficent featuring 50 Cent as the title villain. “This one ain’t going to no Redbox,” 50 told Kimmel.

50 Cent replaces Angelina Jolie in the clip as Maleficent — sorry, Malefiftycent — and, of course, makes sure to mention his biggest claim to fame: “I’ve been shot nine times, I’m not afraid of no little white girl.”

Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Emma Stone, more read mean tweets about themselves -- VIDEO

Julia Roberts’ gigantic mouth looks like it will devour an elephant in one bite. Mindy Kaling is not funny or attractive; she has an annoying voice and just plainly sucks. Emma Stone looks like she smells like cat piss. Matthew McConaughey, quite plainly, is a d–k turd.

All these things are true… according to citizens of Twitter, anyway. They’re each included in Jimmy Kimmel’s latest installment of “Mean Tweets,” which asks famous people to read the nasty stuff that normos are writing about them on the internet. It’s tough to say who wins this round: Gary Oldman, who can barely keep it together? Sofia Vergara, who has a snappy retort to the troll slagging off on her? David Blaine, who accidentally proves his detractor right? No, wait, I know the answer: It’s June Squibb. Why? Just watch.

Which actress can fit everything she owns in a suitcase, is quasi-homeless? (Shailene Woodley, obviously) -- VIDEO

Shailene Woodley eats clay, makes her own medicine, and is a lucid dreaming enthusiast — but what Jimmy Kimmel cares about is how much she can fit in her luggage.

“Everything that I own and use are in a carry-on suitcase,” Woodley told a shocked Kimmel Thursday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Stewart, Kimmel, Fallon talk Solange/Jay Z elevator fight -- VIDEO

TMZ released video footage of Solange Knowles attacking brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator as Beyonce stood by — and naturally, the media was on it.

The video came out Monday, and since then, cable talking heads have been tirelessly trying to figure out what caused the incident — because, apparently, there’s nothing better to talk about. Jon Stewart mocked all the coverage of the elevator affair on The Daily Show Wednesday night, showing clips from outlets like CNN and Fox News and poking fun at their baseless theories — including that Jay Z has been cheating on Beyoncé, and the mogul wanted to ditch his wife and her sis to go to Rihanna’s party after the Met Gala. “With all these incredibly well-sourced motives, I can’t believe Solange didn’t spend the entire Met Ball kicking Jay Z in the face,” Stewart said. “Why wait until the elevator?”

Billionaire Donald Sterling made headlines last week when TMZ posted audio recordings of the Los Angeles Clippers owner making racist comments.

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.
