Jimmy Kimmel, game show host

jimmy kimmelJimmy Kimmel, after leaving radio to become Ben Stein's first (and best) sidekick on Win Ben Stein's Money, is getting back into the game show racket for ABC's Set for Life. ABC has issued a press release for the game show, which is slated to air later this season, but they don't actually say what the game show will entail, other than that the winner will receive monthly payouts for the rest of their lives. I think a cool ironic twist would be to secretly poison the contestants so the rest of their life would only be one month. Then Kimmel could cackle wildly while flames shot out of the stage behind him. We'll see if they use my suggestion or not. Oh yeah, and fans of Kimmel's late night talk show needn't worry, he'll still be doing that, too.

To be honest, the game sucks ass. I doubt it could be any worse than it is now. If you saw the former game show "Powerball: Instant Millionaire", just imagine that bonus round stretched over an hour. Basically, you stand on a tile and hope that it turns white and not green. One person stands and the other person, in isolation, says when to stop. The first round builds your bank and the 2nd round determines for how long. I am being dead serious, the show blows. Trust me on this one. Meanwhile: FOX's Show Me the Money isn't looking like it's going to be picked up even thought I had tons of contestant searches.

Crap, you mean he'll still be doing that show?
I can't believe he left The Man Show to do another run of the mill late night talk show. You ain't gonna beat Conan.
