Jimmy Kimmel Gives Emotional Tribute to His Late Uncle Frank (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 7th 2011 10:00AM
Jimmy Kimmel's late Uncle Frank Potenza may be gone, but he's certainly not forgotten. Last night on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' Kimmel gave an emotional, tearful tribute to his uncle, who passed away August 23 at the age of 77.

Potenza, known on the show simply as Uncle Frank, was a constant presence on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' where he worked as a security guard, commentator and occasional red carpet interviewer. He was a willing, good-natured participant in the show's comedy bits and was always smiling, even when he was the butt of a joke.

Kimmel fought through tears -- and cracked a few jokes -- during a monologue that eulogized his beloved uncle. He remembered his Uncle Frank as a New York City cop of 20 years who only made six arrests, a man who would always show up 12 hours early for anything, had been a personal bodyguard for Frank Sinatra and moved their family to Las Vegas when Kimmel was a kid.

He thanked the audience for "letting me put my crazy Uncle on television" before airing a montage, set to Sinatra's 'My Way,' that featured some of Uncle Frank's most memorable moments on the show. Check out the video tribute to Uncle Frank after the jump.

Kimmel Asks Kids How CBS Should Kill Charlie Sheen on 'Two and a Half Men' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 30th 2011 4:49AM
'Jimmy Kimmel Live'With unsubstantiated rumors running around that Chuck Lorre and CBS are planning to kill off Charlie Sheen's character in the new season of 'Two and a Half Men,' Jimmy Kimmel decided to ask around to see how people might want to see him die. And, to keep it creative, he asked kids.

Where else would you get suggestions like having fire ants burn his face and hitting him with Barbie dolls until he's dead? There was something very disturbing about seeing these adorable children make such horrific suggestions on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

One kid even offered to do it himself. "I would probably get a bazooka and blow him up," he said. Another little girl broke our hearts by suggesting they give him cancer "like my cat."

Sarah Ferguson Tells Jimmy Kimmel She Cleaned Urinals on Her First Trip to the U.S. (VIDEO)

sarah ferguson, jimmy Kimmel LiveSarah Ferguson dropped by 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) to chat about her new documentary series, 'Finding Sarah,' and about her humble beginnings.

The Duchess of York didn't start out her life as a part of the rich and famous Royal Family. She was a "regular kid," as Kimmel said, who had to pay for her first trip to America by cleaning "urine-alls" or, as we Westerners call them, urinals, or toilets in Squaw Valley.

Ferguson had to hold down three jobs at one time to fund her travels, and her past gigs included escorting children to the ski lift and heating up strudel in a strudel house.

Lindsay Lohan's Humpilates on KimmelOn 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards' (Sun., 12AM ET on ABC), an abundance of Hollywood's hottest babes revealed the exercise routine responsible for their svelte look: Jimmy K and his Hottie Body Humpilates technique.

Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel and Sofia Vergara were on hand to demonstrate in Jimmy Kimmel's infomercial, each humping an exercise ball (the "HoBo"). Dressed in red spandex, Jimmy K directed them: "Hump it up. Hump it down. Take a train to humpy town!" Eva Longoria revealed, "I couldn't stop humping! I hump everywhere -- at work, at the beach, in the car."

Lindsay Lohan appeared, hand in hand with Jimmy K, to give her full endorsement -- with the help of a lion. "Lions hump upwards of 40 times a night. I've spent thousands of hours watching them." Kimmel said, "The Jimmy K program is so affordable, it's practically a steal." Lohan chimed in, "Allegedly." Wink wink.

Tom Bergeron: A Man's Guest Spot Is His 'Castle'

by Michael Maloney, posted Apr 9th 2010 9:07PM
'Dancing With the Stars' main man Tom Bergeron is playing Bobby Mann -- a late night talk show host who gets canceled permanently on the April 12 episode of 'Castle,' which airs on ABC immediately after the 'DWTS' two-hour performance show. It's up to series star Nathan Fillion and his TV detective partner, played by Stana Katic, to find out who killed Bobby.

AOL spoke with Bergeron, who weighed in on 'Castle,' the current -- and arguably most-talked about -- cast of 'Dancing With the Stars,' and how he handles those pesky TMZ.com interviews.

Jimmy Kimmel Makes His Own Tiger Woods Nike Ad (VIDEO)

Jimmy Kimmel's Nike AdThe blogosphere is buzzing about Nike's latest ad, unveiled yesterday to commemorate Tiger Woods' return to the golf course. Most (arguably everyone) think it's bizarre and creepy. In the spot, Woods holds a 30-second stare-down with the camera while (in voice-over) his late father speaks to him from beyond the grave.

Jimmy Kimmel was surprised by the reaction. He told the 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC) audience he had done a well received "similar commercial a few years ago with Uncle Frank after I had sex with 14 women and crashed into a tree." Cue the black-and-white "commercial," Kimmel's deadpan stare and a distant voice saying, "This's your Uncle Frank... Good job, Jim, good job. Jimmmmy, I love you." Not at all creepy. Simply hilarious.

Kimmel to Do a One-Hour Special After 'Lost' Finale

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 5th 2010 12:38PM
Jimmy KimmelJimmy Kimmel is no stranger to 'Lost.' He's been doing parody sketches of the show since its first season. Remember when Jimmy revealed that the Smoke Monster was actually Cookie Monster?

It's entirely appropriate that shortly after the two-hour series finale on May 23rd, ABC will be broadcasting "Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to 'Lost'" which will include interviews with the cast and an appearance by showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.

It's nice when a show has a definitive ending and the network can make a big cross-promotional deal about it, possibly pulling in some extra advertising revenue to boot. Hopefully ABC won't get desperate and start a follow-up series called 'After-Lost'. Or even worse, 'Found.'

One can also hope that the cast doesn't get drunk and act like complete imbeciles like the cast of 'Cheers' did on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' after that show wrapped up. No letting Sawyer near the punch bowl.

Well, wonder no more: According to Entertainment Weekly, the host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' will be following the 'Lost' series finale with a post-show special featuring live interviews with the show's stars as well as with the masterminds behind the mysteries, 'Lost' executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.

Is Game Show Hostdom Dead?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 26th 2010 3:10PM
Game show hosts Drew Carey, Wayne Brady and Guy Fieri
Game shows used to flood the dial of my TV back in the 1980s and '90s. And that was when my TV could only pick up eight channels, three depending on the weather.

Back then, almost everything from daytime fare to the occasional prime time bit of airtime starred game show hosts. Their purpose on television was solely to wear smart suits, make sure their teeth reached the optimum level of whiteness and keep the game moving but entertaining.

Now that game shows are making a slow but steady return to television, it seems the traditional role of "host" has turned away from the traditional "game" emcee like Chuck Woolery, Wink Martindale, Bob Barker and Art Fleming and more towards lively hosting personalities from other walks of entertainment life like Drew Carey, Wayne Brady, Howie Mandel and Guy Fieri. Does this mean that the role of the traditional TV game show has gone to that great big "Curtain No. 2" in the sky?

Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy KimmelOn 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), David Letterman told Jimmy Kimmel how much he enjoyed his participation in "the Jay Leno scandal."

They both agreed that it was loads of fun, if only Letterman hadn't thrown a lifesaver out to Leno during the Super Bowl, said Kimmel. "We had him! We were drowning him!"

But who even remembers the game? That lifesaver was the highlight of the Super Bowl.

Animal Planet Gives Mike Tyson His Own Pigeon Racing Show

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 16th 2010 7:18PM
I'm tempted to make fun of this because you never hear the words "Mike Tyson" and "pigeons" together in the same sentence. But then again, I really like the layout of my face and it would be a shame if someone like Tyson were to mess it up.

Animal Planet has announced that Tyson will have his own reality show in which he races his flock of trained pigeons against a series of professional competitors.

For those who aren't in the know, Tyson has had a lifelong obsession with training and caring for birds. In the video below, he takes Jimmy Kimmel's Uncle Frank on a tour of his bird sanctuary.
