Jimmy Kimmel to air primetime specials

Jimmy KimmelThe late night comedian will be appearing during your primetime schedule. Starting tomorrow, Jimmy Kimmel LIve will run special half-hour shows each night that ABC airs the basketball finals. Special guests include: David Beckham, Edward Norton, Charles Barkley, Liv Tyler, Adam Sandler, Eminem, Shaquille O'Neil, Magic Johnson and New Orleans Hornets guard and 2008 MVP contender Chris Paul, among others.

Out of the celebrities mentioned, I'm most interested to see Eminem. I haven't seen the Real Slim Shady on TV in awhile. He's always a good interview though -- all that contrived hostility and testosterone in overdrive. Who are you looking forward to seeing? Or is Kimmel's fabulousness enough to get you to tune in?

The schedule is after the jump.

Primetime Jimmy Kimmel Live specials:

Thursday, June 5 at 8:00 p.m., ET/CT

Sunday, June 8 at 8:00 p.m., ET/CT

Tuesday, June 10 at 8:00 p.m., ET/CT

Thursday, June 12 at 8:00 p.m., ET/CT

Sunday, June 15 at 8:00 p.m., ET/CT (If necessary)

Tuesday, June 17 at 8:00 p.m., ET/CT (If necessary)

Thursday, June 19 at 8:00 p.m., ET/CT (If necessary)

According to the press release, the shows will also include some of Kimmel's signature comedy pieces: "a celebrity bowling match, a spelling bee, outrageous basketball tricks and a casino night in which Jimmy's Aunt Chippy will attempt to win big at Blackjack for each and every audience member."

ha ha, jeeemy, as guillermo would say, whatever happened to your loser game show, 'set for life'? i guess it, and you, aren't! wanna know why i have dimmed my ardor for you, though i still dig ya? the early, unfair, reverse racist, totally sexist support you an' your yiddish sinmate threw behind BARACK OBAMA, without giving my girl HILLARY a fair shake. sara silverman, who i've lost some affection for too, what happened to the love for another LADY, girlfriend? is being politically correct in your bleedin' heart liberalism of 'hollyweirdos' that important to you that you would lose the ONLY female with a chance in any of our lifetimes as the nominee? jeez, and she's part jewish too, I mean hillary clinton! now i HOPE to all hopes that JOHN McCain WINS IN A LANDSLIDE!
