I Hate Jimmy Kimmel

I hate Jimmy Kimmel. There's something about him that rubs me the wrong way. I don't find him particularly funny and it bothers me that he has his own platform in a late night program to tell mediocre jokes and be a lame TV host. This past year I was able to solidify my dislike for him after watching his attack on Emily Gould on live television. I vowed to never watch his show again.

Gould, a former Gawker.com editor, appeared on a 2007 Larry King Live episode for which Kimmel was filling in as a host. Kimmel embarrassed her on the air, which I found pointless and hypocritical (particularly because I like Gould, her writing and at the time, Gawker). From that moment on I was sure: I hate Jimmy Kimmel.

That being said, I was hesitant to showcase the video below, because I'd rather not discuss Jimmy Kimmel or direct any more eyeballs his way -- but this clip was worth mentioning his name on my blog. Sarah Silverman, Kimmel's long time (and talented) girlfriend made him a music video as a tribute to the fact that Kimmel's late night show has been on the air for 5 years (?!)

She's funny, and the cameo appearance by Matt Damon is classic. Enjoy.

I never really liked Jimmy Kimmel, but it was an absolute delight to see him finally call out these snarky celebrity blogs for what they are--bitter, self-aggrandizing trash. I don't know what's worse, the people who write this garbage or the idiots who read it.

My name's Jimmy Kimmel, I'm going to host the Man Show and pretend to be a man and then, somehow, even though I have no personality whatsoever and I'm naturally very quiet, lose a bunch of weight and host a show that nobody likes...Fuck you Jimmy, you are smug fuck and I hope your show fails. You stand for nothing and all you do is judge. Fuck you for being everything that is wrong with the world. Also, since you lost weight your head has become huge. Yes, you have a giant head. Your not even a real celebrity, your one of those people that everybody goes "the quiet dumb guy from the man show has a talk show? ...I'm glad I got that out of my system.

Im so happy i found this site. I too hate jimmy kimmel so much. That video is a perfect example. His squinty eyes and agape mouth that never really closes. He was drunk that day im sure of it. To the above poster I thought the same thing about the guy from the man show having a talk show. I think he is about as credible as jimmy fallon. Hes not a real celeb he does have a giant head and i cringe whenever i hear his name.

I love finding sites like this basically because i find others that think like me. It's easier for me to say who i like more than who I hate because the hate list goes on and on. But why do i hate Jimmy Kimmel well seriously whats to like.I remember when I used to watch him on Win Ben Steins (another jerk by the way) money. i knew then that the sleeze ball was going places, because that's just what the public wants another no talent entertainer to fill their misrable lives.

I hate Jimmy Kimmel too. He's a cunt kraut who isn't funny at all. Sometimes his existence made me want to kill him, literally.

I really hate kimmel also; however, before this blog I did not know why I just knew he is a very un funny person. I'm glad I found this post and I agree his personality sucks he jokes are wack , someone please please get him cancelled. If I know his show is on I won't even go to that Channel as to not give a rating. Boycott jimmy Kimbe

Jimmy Kimmel is a dick, for example that lie witness news shit where he exploits people for comedy. Some people aren't smart, and shouldn't be put on television to be laughed at, that's really fucking cruel. Then there was "Have you had sex in your comic con costume?" like what the fuck? why do broadcast something like that?
