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!
“Apologies to Matt Damon”
One of Kimmel’s early running jokes was signing off by saying “apologies to Matt Damon, we’ve run out of time.” And when he actually brought Damon on as a guest, Jimmy told the Oscar winner — you guessed it — that they’d run out of time. A tantrum ensued.
“I’m F—ing Matt Damon”
Kimmel’s then-girlfriend continued the Damon joke with a video she debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in which the actor gets his revenge on Jimmy.
“I’m F—ing Ben Affleck.”
In response, Kimmel made a video of his own with Damon’s BFF, Ben Affleck.
The YouTube Challenges
Of the host’s many “YouTube Challenges,” where he asks viewers to film their friends and family member’s responses to certain belligerent prompts and upload them to his site, “Hey Jimmy, I Told My Kids I Ate All of Their Halloween Candy” is our favorite.
The Handsome Men’s Club
Jimmy hosted a meeting of the The Handsome Men’s Club, which includes Patrick Dempsey, Josh Hartnett, Sting, Lenny Kravitz, Rob Lowe, John Krasinski and of course, Jimmy himself. The other members weren’t impressed when Kimmel didn’t allow Twilight stars Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson into the club.
