Jimmy Kimmel Live Renewed

TVLine Items: ABC Re-Ups Kimmel, Billy Bush Joins Today and More

Bad news for Hollywood’s A-list celebrities: They’ll have to keep reading insulting tweets for at least three more years.

ABC announced on Tuesday that it has extended Jimmy Kimmel‘s Live! contract through fall 2019, ensuring the late-night talk show will remain on the air through at least Season 17.

As previously reported, Kimmel will also host the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 18, on ABC — oh, and he’s running for vice president, too.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* It’s official: Ending months of speculation, NBC News announced Tuesday that Access Hollywood host Billy Bush will join the 9 am hour of Today, beginning with the Peacock Net’s coverage of the Olympic games in Rio this August.

* Ahead of Narcos‘ Season 2 premiere, Season 1 of the Netflix drama will air on Univision later this year.

* AMC has ordered six episodes of Heroes and Villains: The History of Comic Books, a docuseries hailing from Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. Premiering in 2017, the project will explore the stories, people and events that transformed the comic book industry and tell the origin stories of iconic comic book characters.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Organic lawn care includes less mowing, less watering, no
    pesticides, no pollution and having a beautiful, green, healthy lawn. This methane
    is the same as natural gas from the ground. By scrubbing these parts, you are removing
    many of the bacteria colonies causing your disposal’s odor
    problem.

  3. Just like humans, they also need to have their own house.
    When weekly cleaning time comes around, you will find it so much easier, and less
    stinky if you have been emptying the droppings out regularly.
    Chicken is versatile and can be prepared numerous
    ways for a greater number of dining options as well.

  8. Pat Weaver is vomiting in his grave considering what the Today show has devolved into. The dumbing down of America continues. Who are they going to bring on next–Maury Povich?
