by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 13th 2011 3:00AM
'The X Factor' judges, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'In the past two weeks, Simon Cowell has gone from three to one act on 'The X Factor.' In both instances, it came down to the women on the panel to decide. The first week, they eliminated Drew. This week, Nicole Scherzinger threw it to the public vote and Rachel Crow was out.

"Do you guys feel like you ganged up on Simon's contestants specifically because you wanted to win this competition?" Jimmy Kimmel asked the other three judges on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). All of them, of course, vehemently denied it.

Jeremy Renner, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Just listening to Jeremy Renner talk about all the things Tom Cruise wanted to do with him in one day is exhausting. On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), he talked about going shark diving, and indoor skiing with him within a four hour span.

Afterwards, Renner said Cruise suggested, "You wanna go go-cart racing." When that was rejected, he said, "Let's go surf in the sand dunes," but Renner was thinking maybe do some of these things tomorrow.

"He's not scared of things that the human brain is supposed to be scared of," Jimmy Kimmel said. "He thinks they're fun." He then suggested that maybe Cruise puts on a superhero costume at night and fights crime. What else to do with that boundless energy?

Jeri Ryan Talks 'Star Trek' Stalkers and Conventions on 'Kimmel' (VIDEO)

Jeri Ryan, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Jeri Ryan's Seven of Nine was at the same time one of the most popular 'Star Trek' characters and one of the most polarizing among hardcore fans. Plus, as is evident by anyone who saw her on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Ryan is a beautiful woman. This is a dangerous combination, as she learned when she picked up a couple of stalkers along the way.

It got so bad that she had to stop going to conventions for awhile, but the actress admits that she's back to going to them, with one minor change. "Now they've beefed up the security so I can go again," she said.

Christina Applegate, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'If someone were to ask which show of the late '80s and '90s would spawn some of the most acclaimed and successful actors of the modern generation, no one would have picked FOX's raunchy hit 'Married... with Children.' On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Christina Applegate marveled at the success the cast has seen.

While she's enjoying another career renaissance with 'Up All Night,' Ed O'Neill is finally getting some industry recognition for his work as family patriarch on 'Modern Family.' Meanwhile, Katey Sagal has been working steadily through the years, finally striking Golden Globe for her gut-wrenching performance on 'Sons of Anarchy.'

Matthew Morrison Talks Directing Chewbacca and Jane Lynch on 'Glee' (VIDEO)

Matthew Morrison, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'When you think about who might be more difficult to direct between Jane Lynch and Chewbacca -- well, who has to think about such ridiculous things? As Matthew Morrison revealed on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), he did.

Morrison recently wrapped directing an episode of 'Glee' in which the cast put on a Christmas special that was an homage in part to the 'Stars Wars' Christmas special that most fans of the film series laugh at and at the same time wish had never happened.

But George Lucas granted them the official Chewbacca for the suit. But it wasn't Chewbacca who stopped Morrison before a critique and said, "Before you say anything, I just want to remind you that I have an Emmy Award and I was just nominated for a People's Choice Award."

Jim Parsons Was Duped into Hugs and Kisses With a Fan (VIDEO)

Jim Parsons, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'One of two things will happen after Jim Parsons' appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). Either the woman who ran up and abruptly hugged and kissed him as if she knew him will never get away with that particular move on a celebrity again, or this will become a new trend for star-spotters.

All you have to do is run up to them, as this woman did, and scream out their name like you're a long lost friend. As Parsons explained, "She comes up and pretends that she knows you and you're too nice to be rude and go, 'Who the hell are you?'"

Oh, we just thought of a third possibility. Celebrities might decide they need to be ruder to strangers just in case it's this woman lying in wait, or someone who wants to emulate her technique.

Shaquille O'Neal's Girlfriend Carries Him on Her Back on 'Kimmel' (VIDEO)

Shaquille O'Neal, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Shaquille O'Neal's girlfriend is very beautiful, but Jimmy Kimmel wasn't wrong when he described a photo of the pair on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) by saying, "It looks to me as if you're taking your daughter to kindergarten."

The stark difference in their side made it even more unbelievable when O'Neal claimed she could pick him up and carry him on her back. So he brought her out on the stage and proved that she could not only pick him up, but she could walk with him.

Regis Philbin and Kimmel Chew Jordana Brewster's 5-Year Old Piece of Gum (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 29th 2011 3:30AM
Regis Philbin, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Five years ago, Jordana Brewster stuck a piece of gum on Jimmy Kimmel's desk, and then Kimmel and Regis Philbin proceeded to chew on it. That was weird enough, but Kimmel upped the ante with Philbin this week on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

For some reason, the show's producer kept that thrice-chewed wad of gum stuck to a piece of paper. "I dare you to try it again," Philbin said to Kimmel. "Go ahead."

So Kimmel did, marveling that it still had some flavor. He then passed it to Philbin, who chewed it a few times before giving it up. "Boy, that's hard," he said. "I just lost two teeth." Now, someone just needs to get in touch with Brewster to get it back to her and the circle of chewing will be complete.

'Jimmy Kimmel Live'The winners of 'Dancing With the Stars' will surely make quite a tour of the various media outlets, but 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) got them first. Live via satellite, he talked to the winners about their hard-earned victory.


The pair were grinning ear to ear, each holding the trophy they'd earned over the past ten weeks. It was a close finish between Rob Kardashian and J.R. Martinez, but in the end it was the Iraq War veteran who brought it home.

Kristen Stewart Talks Lovemaking and Ratings for 'Breaking Dawn' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 11th 2011 3:30AM
Kristen Stewart, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Robert Pattinson was on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), where he basically said it was because of Kristen Stewart thrusting during their sex scene that 'Breaking Dawn' nearly wound up with an R rating. Stewart went on the show with a slightly altered version of events.

"He's the thruster, obviously," she said of Pattinson. "Not me."

According to Stewart, though, it was the noises that sent the scene over that mysterious line between a PG-13 and an R rating. Noises she couldn't even articulate on 'Kimmel' lest his show find itself slapped with an R rating and removed from the air.

Robert Pattinson Explains Why Sex Scene in Latest 'Twilight' Was Rated R (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 10th 2011 4:15AM
Robert Pattinson, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'If you thought Robert Pattinson's discussion about the sex scene that was pushing the latest 'Twilight' film into an R rating was awkward on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), it's even worse when you consider that his proud parents were sitting in the audience.

The rating wasn't because of any nudity seen, though. It was something far more challenging to fix, as they apparently had problems with the thrusting. That said, Pattinson said it was Kristen Stewart who pushed the boundaries and not him. So his later comment about a leash restricting his movements would have been unnecessary.

50 Cent Gave Mickey Rourke a Ride to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

Mickey Rourke, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Mickey Rourke was just going to take a cab to his appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), but instead he rolled up in style. In fact, he rolled up in a Rolls Royce, electric blue in color.

When his cab didn't show up, and in fact no other cabs were showing up either, the Rolls pulled up and it was 50 Cent. Rourke wasn't clear if 50 showed up intending to give him a ride, or if he just happened to be in the area. Jimmy Kimmel wondered if it wasn't indicative that perhaps 50 was stalking him.

He did, after all, happen to mention that he was intending to remake one of Rourke's more obscure movies. Maybe 50 made all the cabs disappear, too, just so he could give Rourke that ride.

Herman Cain, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'According to Herman Cain, the sexual harassment allegations that have been laid at his campaign doorstep over the past week haven't been all bad. While he's planning a press conference to address the accusations directly, and affirms that "there's not an ounce of truth" in the claims, he also indicated on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM on ABC) that fundraising has actually improved.

"The day of ... these accussations, we had the highest fundraising day online in the history of this campaign and it has not stopped," he said. "The American people are saying, 'We are sick of gutter politics.'"

Adam Sandler, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'You might not have expected to hear Adam Sandler's new movie 'Jack and Jill' being talked about in the same conversation as 'The Godfather,' but it happened not once, but twice, on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

First, Kimmel was marveling at how much screen-time Al Pacino had in the film. "I expected Al would be in the movie for like two minutes, but Al is in the whole movie," he said. "Al is in this movie more than he was in 'The Godfather.'"

Later, Sandler said that Pacino was excited to be working "with the great Adam Sandler." He then related a story about Pacino tearing up on the set, forcing them to stop filming. According to Sandler, Pacino said he was crying because "it hurts knowing Marlon [Brando] will never work with such greatness."

Pee-Wee Herman Shrinks Jimmy Kimmel, Takes Over His Show (VIDEO)

Pee-Wee Herman, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'If you ever wondered what Pee-Wee Herman would do if he were given a talk show today, tuning in to his appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) would have answered the question. Using a shrinking potion, he shrunk Kimmel down and took over the desk.

His first demand now that he had his own talk show? He had the band fire up some circus music. Kimmel finally complained -- in a very goofy, high-pitched voice -- one time too many, and Herman dropped a trick-or-treat basket over him.
