Jimmy Kimmel Live! Highlights

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

I went to Mexico for New Year’s. It was a lot of fun. But for some reason, I still don’t know why, on Friday we had no internet or cell service in the whole region of Mexico for thirteen hours. I have to say, thirteen hours without the internet was so much worse then I imagined it would be; I had to make my own pornography from scratch.

I hope you had a fun New Year’s celebration. I realized this while standing in a group of people on New Year’s Eve all staring at TV screens watching a ball drop: we’re not that much different than cats. They’re just better at falling than us.

It’s freezing cold. With wind chill it got down to sixty-three below zero in parts of Montana. At that temperature, if you remove your hat, your thoughts will actually freeze inside your brain.

I know it’s annoying that it’s almost eighty degrees here today and the rest of the country is freezing. On the bright side, everyone here in LA is eventually going to hell, so it evens out.

The comedy segment bit was “Martin Scorsese and Guillermo Uno-on-Uno”. It was well done. It may not completely obvious why at first, but it’ll make sense eventually:

Courteney Cox was the first couch guest. She stars on the show Cougar Town. The interview was ok. I wish I had some good things to say about it, but, in my opinion, Courteney just didn’t interview well. She never relaxed and took advantage of the opportunity to enjoy her time there. Maybe there are valid reasons for this. But you’d think a person who had spent New Year’s Eve with the host of the show they’re now on would be able to put their guard down for a few minutes and have some fun. Here’s the first part of the interview, which I’m only posting because of the great Kimmel content:

Juan Pablo Galavis was the second couch guest. He is the bachelor in this season’s The Bachelor. The interview was fine. Juan Pablo was charismatic, amusing and a good sport. I’m not a fan of shows like The Bachelor, but Juan Pablo held his own and didn’t suck. Since both JKL and The Bachelor are on ABC, most of the segment was focused on the latter show’s first episode. Kimmel spent about a minute on Juan Pablo himself, which can be seen at the beginning of this clip:

Johnathan Rice was the musical guest. He gave a nice performance.

Decent show. I give it:
