Jimmy Kimmel Is Seriously Considering Hanging Up His Talk Show Hat

Jimmy Kimmel has been a late night staple for quite a long time on ABC.

According to a Variety story, Jimmy Kimmel is considering retiring from this late-night talk show when his contract runs out in 2019.

TV personality Jimmy Kimmel, who will be hosting the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday, has vowed to "keep his "longtime frenemy" and actor-producer Matt Damon offstage". Here's what he recently had to say about why he might quit the game in the near future. Previous year he returned to host the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards. "Doing the show every day doesn't leave a lot of time for that".

"We do this for the love of giving awards to strangers", he said, noting that he just loves presenting bobbleheads to millionaires.

Speaking with Variety, Kimmel, 49, confirmed that he "will do the show for another three years", but what's beyond his nearly two decades as an ABC host is still unknown. "Kudos to God's booker, because he or she really scored this year". "I have to look at his face in the audience".

"Unfortunately, we will see Matt Damon", Kimmel said. "You want his film to lose?"

He continued, "I made a decision to try to enjoy the process and be optimistic", he says. "And then I think she came to her senses and decided that was not a good idea".

"If there's something that excites me creatively, it doesn't necessarily mean something in show business", the host said.

Kimmel and Damon have actually been good friends for years, appearing in skits together on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" where they go to couples therapy or pull pranks on each other. "That said, my subconscious still tells me it's going to be a disaster". "I'm just sad Chris Rock isn't hosting the show, someone who's actually amusing". ABC, which is the network airing the Oscars, will be live from the red carpet beginning an hour before the ceremony, at 7:00 p.m. EST.
