jimmy kimmel live break

After almost 18 years and 3,130 shows, Jimmy Kimmel is taking a vacation. The host of Jimmy Kimmel Live announced on the June 18 episode that he will be “taking the summer off to spend even more time with my family,” a sweet announcement that was unexpectedly crashed by Matt Damon, the long-running butt of Kimmel’s jokes. And he wasn’t too happy about having to wait even longer for his time on the show.

Tom Holland Surprises Jimmy Kimmel's Son

It’s very likely that production on the third installment of the Spider-Man franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be delayed, possibly impacting the film’s July 16, 2021 release date next year. That means we’re not entirely sure when we’ll see Tom Holland back in the red and blue tights as your friendly neighborhood webslinger again. But last night, the wallcrawling star reprised his big screen role as Spidey’s alter ego Peter Parker (and a homemade version of Spider-Man) on a much smaller screen during a remote interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he surprised the host’s three-year old son for his birthday.

late night hosts during coronavirus

Late night shows were one of the first in the entertainment industry to take a hit from the growing coronavirus pandemic, as many of the live shows depended on audiences who were mostly older and from out of town. As the late night shows shut down to curb the spread of coronavirus, aka COVID-19, the TV hosts were left to self-quarantine themselves at home. And what are a bunch of entertainers going to do at home? Well, put on a show, of course.

The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Show, andThe Daily Show all aired special “at home editions” of their shows, as hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, and Trevor Noah transformed into vloggers for a night. The homey sequences, which include Fallon playing guitar and delivering a monologue with the help of his daughter, and Stephen Colbert lighting a fire in his backyard, are actually quite charming and a smart way to keep their late-night audiences engaged as they’re stuck at home too.
