Jimmy Kimmel Live! Highlights
I tried, I really did, but I just couldn’t bring myself to review last night’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I mean, seriously, Dana Carvey? It hasn’t been 1995 for, like, ten years now. So, instead, here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!:
The US Postal Service announced today they’re planning to close 2000 branches of postal stations, in addition to the almost 500 they were already planning to close. They lost 8.5 billion dollars last year. Maybe in retrospect making people wait in line while you slowly finish your bag of Fiery Hot Cheetos isn’t the best business plan.
For our younger viewers perhaps I should mention that the post office is a place your parents use to go to communicate before there were text messages. As the years go on young people use the postal service less and less. Maybe the post office should be delivering pizzas instead of letters. People always like that. So, local post offices will be closing gradually over the course of this year but, don’t worry, if you want to wait in line for a couple of hours you can still always go to the DMV.
Cory Monteith was the first couch guest. He is one of the many stars on the television show Glee. I’m a fan of Glee, but don’t follow anything Glee-related outside of the actual show, so I was interested in seeing what Cory was like. I was a little worried when the interview started. I mean, geez, he was seriously overdressed. But the interview ended up being pretty entertaining. I really liked that Cory was easy-going, didn’t take himself too seriously, told good stories and was able to laugh when Jimmy made teased him. Here’s a clip of the middle of the interview:
Joan Rivers was the second couch guest. She stars on the show Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best. I’d never purposefully watch a half-hour of her, but for some reason I always enjoy the five or six minutes when she’s a guest on late-night talk shows. The interview was fun, but also managed to make me a squirm a little:
The Script was the musical guest. They were ok.
Good show. I give it:
