Below, check out highlights from ABC's late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel LIVE for the week of February 4 including guests Melissa McCarthy, Bradley Cooper and Dr. Phil McGraw. The show airs weeknights, 11:35 p.m., ET on the ABC network.
Jimmy Kimmel serves as host and executive producer of Emmy Award-nominated "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the ABC Television Network's late-night talk show. Now in its tenth season, "JKL" is packed with hilarious comedy bits and features a diverse lineup of guests including celebrities, athletes, musicians, comedians and humorous human interest subjects. Every night Kimmel delivers his up-to-the minute take on the latest news and pop culture topics from the day's events in his monologue.
"JKL's" recurring cast of characters include Kimmel's childhood best friend and bandleader Cleto Escobedo, security guard Guillermo Rodriguez, Kimmel's Cousin Sal, No. 1 Celebrity Superfan Jake Byrd and Kimmel's feisty Aunt Chippy. The late night show's famed comedy segments include "Jimmy Kimmel Lie Detective," "JKL's" YouTube challenges and "Kimmel Kartoons." "JKL" also features a weekly signature comedy segment entitled "Unnecessary Censorship," which pokes fun at the FCC's crackdown on the media by unnecessarily censoring clips from TV news, political speeches, reality TV and nature shows.
Jimmy Kimmel and Jill Leiderman serve as executive producers. Jason Schrift, Douglas DeLuca and Erin Irwin serve as co-executive producers. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is shot live in front of a studio audience and produced by Jackhole Industries in association with ABC Studios.
