Jimmy Kimmel Live Brings a Different Side to the Late Night Talk Show

— March 4, 2014 — Pop Culture
In a sea of late night talk shows, a few stand above the rest; Jimmy Kimmel Live is one of those shows. Jimmy Kimmel brings a different feel to the late-night talk show arena by using crude humor, strange pranks and almost thoughtless banter to incite laughs. If Jimmy Fallon is the class clown everyone loves, then Jimmy Kimmel is the similarly hilarious and snarky school bully.

We saw this on display when Jimmy Kimmel brought out Toronto mayor Rob Ford on Jimmy Kimmel Live. While ridiculing the Toronto mayor is certainly easy, Kimmel took the high road, allowing other Torontonians to do the ridiculing themselves. Ford took it in stride and stood by his guns and all-in-all it wasn't as big of a meltdown as it could have been.
