Kimmel Briefly Enlivens ABC’s Upfronts


A rare bit of entertainment broke out today at ABC's upfronts when jovial late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel delivered an off-color comedy routine, taking shots at Jay Leno ("[NBC is] giving Jay’s viewers exactly what they want. An early-bird special"), ABC's advertisers ("Next year on Grey's Anatomy, your product could kill Dr. Izzie. It just depends on how much you want to pay"), and his network's lineup ("This show, Shark Tank, has the word 'tank' right in the title"). [ArtsBeat/NYT]
