Jimmy Kimmel: Kanye West & Dennis Rodman
Gavin Newsom was on Kimmel’s show, but first Jimmy had some more pop culture and current events to cover, including a honeymoon to Mars and Dennis Rodman in North Korea. Plus, Thursday night means it is time for This Week In Unnecessary Censorship.
Jimmy Kimmel Live: Justin Bieber Gas Mask
Justin Bieber was recently spotted wearing a gas mask in public in Europe. Jimmy suggested that he should get friends to hang out with him instead of security and bodyguards. “If he buys a monkey or gets a nose job, we need to intervene,” he said.
A private space company wants to send a newly married couple to Mars, a trip that would take 16 months, with limited food. The plan to send a married couple is designed to allow the companions to provide emotional support for one another.
Jimmy respectfully submitted Kanye West and Kim Kardashian as candidates.
Jimmy Kimmel: Dennis Rodman North Korea
Dennis Rodman and the Harlem Globetrotters are in North Korea, teaching basketball to children and spending time with Kim Jong Un. “What a great sitcom that would make,” Kimmel suggested. Rodman reportedly told the dictator they will be friends for life.
Basketball announcers got a surprise in Jimmy’s Behind The News segment, when a Toronto player hijacked their live shot.
Jimmy Kimmel Live: Unnecessary Censorship
For This Week in Unnecessary Censorship, the Oscars red carpet was an easy target. Then there was sports coverage, Chris Matthews, The Bachelor, and more. The Chew, The Biggest Loser, and Richard Simmons were among the targets. Even Sesame Street was not immune. It’s always a fun way to end the week.
You may have heard that the producers of The Jerry Springer Show have routinely bleeped inoffensive words and blurred things out occasionally to make the show seem more controversial and entertaining. This recurring bit is just a play on a long TV tradition.
