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.
