Is Jimmy Kimmel Live! ending? Recently, ABC boss Karey Burke spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future of the TV show.
Hosted by Kimmel, the long-running late night series debuted in 2003 and features celebrity interviews, musical acts, comedy, and taped segments. Guests have included Katy Perry, Kanye West, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Chris Pratt, and Matt Damon.
Notably, this year is Kimmel’s last contracted year for Jimmy Kimmel Live!. However, ABC boss Karey Burke says fans don’t have to worry. The network is in talks to keep Kimmel on for at least a few more years:
We are actively in conversations with Jimmy and his team about staying on for as long as he wants to. We’ve made it clear that he is a critical member of the family and we want him on our air as long as he wants to be on it. It’s my hope that he’ll be around for a few more years.”
What do you think? Do you watch Jimmy Kimmel Live!? How much longer do you think the show should run?
