I think the ghost is still a little annoyed about this.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel Live! has annoyed somewhere between 70,000 and 1.4 billion people with the “Kids Table – Government Shutdown” sketch that aired on October 16th. I haven’t seen this many people protest a late-night talk show since Letterman made a misunderstood joke about Palin’s daughter. You can get a snarky and absolutely hilarious summary of the situation here at the AV Club.

Interestingly, I reviewed that Jimmy Kimmel episode and had this to say about that segment: “The comedy segment bit was ‘Kids Table – Government Shutdown.’ It involved kids saying stupid things and bad editing. I didn’t like it.”
