Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Airs weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on ABC. On Thursday Night January 24th 2013,
Actor Matt Damon got his revenge on the very popular late night host Jimmy Kimmel for “dissing” him on the air for the past 10 seasons.
Host Jimmy Kimmel, would announce his guest for the evening which would include the Oscar© winner Matt Damon to appear on the show, but at the end of the show Jimmy would announce that time had ran out on the show, and apologize to matt because he would have to bump Matt off to appear on a later airing, Leaving matt supposedly in the ‘ready room’ pissed that he waited just to be cut at the end of the show. This went on for like I wrote before 10 seasons! Well Mr. Damon had his fill of being cut off the show at the last moment, and decided to get his revenge! The result was the kidnapping of Jimmy Kimmel and the renaming of the show to “Jimmy Kimmel Sucks!”
and what ensued was the most imaginative, brilliant, funny, tasteful “ROAST” I have seen in a very long time.
Staring off in a dark basement we see Matt Damon making a web-video out lining his intentions, with the host Jimmy Kimmel tied up in the background. Then Matt proceeds to the Jimmy Kimmel Live show with Jimmy in tow, still tied to the chair where he stayed for the whole show gaged! Matt fires Jimmys long time staff and replaced them with his choices which included Andy Garcia and Sheryl Crow!
While hosting the show Matt Damon Parades some of the biggest names in Hollywood to appear ( and diss ) Jimmy. Gary Oldman, Robin Williams, Nicole Kidman, Ben Affleck, Reese Witherspoon and Demi Moore. (What was up with her boots?) During the show, some A-list stars videoed in their approval of the changes of the show! And at the end Matt wanted to hear what Jimmy Kimmel had to say about his taking over of the show, but sadly they had ran out of time….. Funny funny Stuff! If you missed it, you can view it on ABC.com
