Jimmy Kimmel Celebrates 11:35 Start with 10-Year Retrospective

By January 6, 2013

Follow me on:

Tuesday's the night Jimmy Kimmel moves to 11:35 p.m. and joins the big boys of late night network TV, David Letterman and Jay Leno. Kimmel will mark the occasion with a 10-year retrospective of his late night talk show, titled "Goodbye to Midnight."

Kimmel doesn't expect big changes to the show as its shifts to a half-hour earlier on Jan. 8. He jokes in a Parade magazine article, "Mainly, I'm hoping the stick with the existing host." And he got downright direct with New York magazine: "Everyone is better than Leno."

We think the move will mean big things for Kimmel. In fact, in our Top 5 Talk Show Predictions for 2013, we bet that Kimmel knocks both Leno and Letterman off their perch at least a handful of times this year.

The threat must be real. Leno moved the start of The Tonight Show from 11:35 to 11:34 p.m. just to start 60 seconds sooner than Jimmy Kimmel Live!
