Just a quick mention on Jimmy Kimmel doing his annual monologue at the ABC upfronts. THR.com’s Live Feed has a transcript of the late night host’s most recent standup. Some of the more notable quips:
read in The Times this morning that Jeff Zucker is building a 40-ton
solid-cement containment dome that he hopes to lower down over the fall
schedule. Poor NBC, they can’t win.”
there are some very big things going on at NBC. They canceled ‘Law
& Order’ and picked up ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles.’ You know,
the last time NBC took a show that had been on for 20 years in New York
and moved it to LA it wound up as the lead-in to George Lopez on TBS.
made a weird announcement yesterday. The coveted post-Super Bowl slot
next year is going to ‘Glee.’ Apparently they’re trying to set a new
Guinness World Record for most drunk 43-year-old guys saying, “What the

favorite ‘Undercover Boss’ episode was when the president of
Hooters pretended he didn’t know that Hooters waitresses get sexually

love ‘Lost’ and I’m going to miss it. Watching ‘Lost’ is what I imagine
it must be like to be trapped inside the brain of Paula Abdul.
