Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel proudly admitted that he lost more than half of his viewers while attacking MAGA supporters but let’s see how long his show will last.

On Wednesday during a ‘Naked Lunch’ podcast Kimmel sighed in relief that his show was allotted another three-year contract. It was up in the air given the drastic drop in viewers but apparently the folks at ABC feel like Kimmel might be able to win back viewers in 2023—not likely, Jimmy.

“Does ABC ever say to you, ‘Hey, could you not just attack this side and lay off a little bit? Cause we are gonna lose those people?’” “Everybody Loves Raymond” creator Phil Rosenthal asked, noting that Kimmel’s animosity extended to a number of Republicans other than just Trump.

“There was at one time, maybe, I don’t know, like right around the beginning of this whole like Trump thing where — ” Kimmel began, but Rosenthal interrupted.

“This is now eight years ago?” he asked.

“Yeah. Something like that. Maybe not quite that long ago that that was like kind of hinted at. But I just said, ‘Listen, I get it. I mean, I don’t disagree. I mean, you’re right. I have lost half of my fans — maybe more than that,’” Kimmel replied.

Kimmel went on to say that, prior to that, research had suggested that he was pretty popular among Republicans — and he added that he had even been willing to give up the show if that was what ABC wanted from him.

“And I get it, if that’s what they want to do, I just said, ‘Listen, if that’s what you wanna do, I understand and I don’t begrudge you for it, but I’m not going to do that. So, you know, if you want somebody else to host the show, then that’s fine. That’s okay with me. I’m just not gonna do it like that,’” he explained, adding that ABC had ultimately allowed him the freedom to make that choice.

“They knew I was serious. I mean, you know … I couldn’t live with myself,” he said.

Rosenthal appeared to agree, telling Kimmel that what he and fellow late-night hosts Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers were doing — with regard to attacking Republicans from their large platforms — amounted to a “public service.”

“You’re the guys who make us feel like we’re not alone,” Rosenthal said.

“You know, I love this country, too,” Kimmel said, arguing that he didn’t see it as a public service so much as just something he needed to do. “I mean, you know, that flag doesn’t belong to them. This is ours. And when I see somebody coming in and ruining it, I’m gonna say something about it. That’s it. That’s as simple as that.”


Trevor Noah‘s show was recently shut down for doing the same thing but somehow Kimmel managed to con the network into a new contract. It’ll be interesting to see if Kimmel is around in 2024, assuming they will give him at least a year to improve his viewership. I guess it’ll all depend on whether or not people fall for his crap.
