Even though Back to the Future Part II predicted 2015 as the year the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series, the team didn’t make it to the Major League Baseball championship game until this year. Over the weekend, the Chicago Cubs won the pennant, and they’re headed to the World Series to face the Cleveland Indians in a Midwest baseball battle for the ages. Fans around the country are excited, and even those who don’t care much about baseball are happy for the team to get a crack at the championship for the first time since 1945.
Sadly, one fan who isn’t around to see this miracle finally come to fruition is Harry Caray, the iconic sports broadcaster who spent the final 16 years of his career covering Chicago Cubs games. He passed away in 1998, but he famously predicted that “as sure as God made green apples, some day the Chicago Cubs are going to be in the World Series.” Well, here we are, and even though Harry Caray is no longer with us, that didn’t stop him from celebrating.
You may remember that Will Ferrell played Harry Caray several times on Saturday Night Live, appearing on Weekend Update and even hosting his own show about space. Well, Ferrell made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to celebrate the historic achievement by the Chicago Cubs, and it’s just as hilarious as you’d expect. Read More »
Even though we won’t see Doctor Strange until November 4th here in the United States, the trailers have already indicated that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will quickly become a master of the mystical arts, despite the fact that he doesn’t really believe in all that spiritual nonsense at first. However, it appears some wires got crossed and Jimmy Kimmel thought Doctor Strange was just a magician who could entertain at a kid’s birthday party. While Strange does his best to put on a good show for the kids, he doesn’t really know how to deal with them properly.
See what happens when Jimmy Kimmel hires Doctor Strange after the jump. Read More »

It’s a familiar joke that the baby is the real head of the household. Family life revolves around the whims of its youngest, most unpredictable member, and all the attention in the room immediately goes to him or her. But what if the baby weren’t just a metaphorical boss? What if the baby were a real boss, with a tiny business suit and a mean coffee addiction and the voice of Alec Baldwin and everything?
That’s the premise of The Boss Baby, the new animated comedy from DreamWorks. Baldwin voices a bratty little baby whose arrival upends the life of his older brother, 7-year-old Tim. Sadly, this is not an adaptation of Beck Bennett’s hilarious “office boss” recurring sketch from Saturday Night Live. Watch the Boss Baby teaser trailer below. Read More »
The 68th Annual Emmy Awards aired on ABC last night where Game of Thrones and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story took home several big awards, with a variety of other shoes getting some trophies as well. But one show that wasn’t vying for any awards last night was Stranger Things. Don’t worry, it’s not because the show wasn’t nominated, but rather because it debuted after the window for eligibility for this year’s awards. There’s a good chance it will get some nominations next year though.
But just because Stranger Things wasn’t nominated for any awards last night doesn’t mean the show didn’t have a presence at the awards. Before the opening of the Emmy ceremony with host Jimmy Kimmel featured an easter egg from the show, three of the child stars from Stranger Things took the stage (off the air) to sing a rendition of Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” to the crowd. Thankfully, someone was able to record the adorable musical number. Plus, Kimmel utilized the kids for a fun gag during the ceremony.

Last night ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 68th Annual Emmy Awards, and he made the typically long-running ceremony a little more tolerable with his quick wit. As is customary for the show’s host, Kimmel partook in a fun opening number that saw him meeting up with some familiar faces from the world of television, all of which were nominated in some form for the awards handed out throughout the night.
After the jump, watch Jimmy Kimmel do some carpool karaoke with James Corden, hitch a ride with a certain modern family, run into a a TV president and even ride a dragon in the 2016 Emmy opening. As a bonus, you can also watch Matt Damon showing up during the ceremony to mock Jimmy Kimmel for losing the Emmy he was nominated for last night. Read More »
This weekend brings The Legend of Tarzan to theaters, but if the reviews and box office tracking are any indicator, it’s not going to make many waves on the big screen. Thankfully, the film’s villain Christoph Waltz already has his eyes on the future. Last night the actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he revealed that he and Jimmy Kimmel recently auditioned together for the recently announced Siegfried and Roy biopic. If their audition tape is any indicator, they’re shoo-ins to take the lead roles.

Sunday night after the Oscars, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had his usual star-studded show to follow Hollywood’s biggest night. There was plenty of fun to be had, from the premiere of a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring Kimmel himself discovering the true identity of Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne, to the latter star helping to sneak Matt Damon into the show.
But outside of comic book jokery and the usual Matt Damon feud shenanigans, Jimmy Kimmel also rounded up Broadway and big screen duo Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane for a new take on The Producers, this time turning Bialystock & Bloom into political consultants who concoct a plan to make money off of a candidate who is “a real trainwreck, a schmuck, a putz, a real Grade A, world-class, gold-plated nincompoop.” Yeah, you know who they’re talking about.

My excitement for the upcoming revival of The X-Files found itself tempered yesterday as a new batch of early reviews arrived. To call the early response to the limited series’ first episode negative would be an understatement. The disappointment was palpable. It hung in the air like an alien fog that you could collect in a jar and bottle in a government agency, only for it to break out and wreak havoc in the middle of the season when everyone is taking a break from the overarching mythology episodes
So faithful-but-not-blind X-Files fans need a laugh today and bless Jimmy Kimmel for trying to give us one with this amusing parody, which finds him teaming up David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for a new case. Watch it for yourself below.
