Jimmy Kimmel Live! Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!:

The NFL returned with a full slate of games yesterday. It’s that special time of the year when a country-western star looks deep into our souls and asks us if we are ready for some football. What if we aren’t? I bet they’d go ahead with it anyway.

It was a sad night tonight for reality television with the final episode of Kate Plus 8 on TLC. From now one if you want to hear Kate Gosselin scream at her children you’ll have to move to within a twelve block radius of her house.

Kate Plus 8 never had the rating success of John and Kate Plus 8. I think the lesson there is that it’s better to exploit your children as a married couple together, as God intended.

Nathan Fillion was the first couch guest. He’s on the show Castle. The interview was pretty good. Nathan was pleasant and funny. I enjoyed the fact that they spent two-thirds of the segment discussing personal things instead of showbiz-related stuff. Here was my favorite part:

Dave Salmoni was the second couch guest. He’s is a zoologist and animal trainer. It was your standard cute-animals-on-display interview, but I’m a sucker for those, so I really enjoyed it. Bonus entertainment was provided by Kimmel who was unnecessarily nervous around them. I think the whole interview is worth watching:

Sia was the musical guest. She was good.

Fine show. I give it:
