TONIGHT: Jimmy Kimmel live at the Emmys

The 64th Annual Emmy Awards air tonight beginning at 8/9c on ABC and CTV. Who will win? A bunch of shows and stars. The usual suspects, I’m thinkin’.
More of a reason to watch is to see Jimmy Kimmel as host. Here’s hoping he lets it rip, that he takes the mickey out of this as much as he takes it out of Matt Damon.
Kimmel’s on a roll, a point I make in this story I wrote this week for The Canadian Press.
Besides this gig, he hosted the Washington Correspondent’s Dinner in April and ABC announced they’re finally going to move Jimmy Kimmel Live ahead to 11:35 p.m. in January.
His late night talk show, which is nominated for an “Outstanding Variety Show” Emmy for the first time, is celebrating 10 years on the air this fall. 
“It definitely means something to me,” Kimmel said in a scrum following his Emmy press conference at last summer’s TCA’s in Los Angeles. “A lot of people doubted I would be on that long. I’m sure there are people in this room who doubted I’d be on this long—including me.”
Jimmy Fallon joins Kimmel among the Variety Show nominees, along with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report Real Time with Bill Maher and Saturday Night Live. Missing, tellingly, are both Leno and Letterman. The times they are a-changin’.
