Unfunny comedian Jimmy Kimmel has been signing off his talk show with the same gag every night for years: “Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time”. The serial bumping resulted in an occasionally hilarious mock feud, thanks to the participation of a game Damon — most notably in the Sarah Silverman viral video ‘F*@#ing Matt Damon’. The faux antagonism reached new heights this week when Damon kidnapped Kimmel and hosted the show himself, dubbing it Jimmy Kimmel Sucks. Bringing in a host of celebrity pals to help him out — including Robin Williams, Ben Affleck, Sarah Silverman, Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, Amy Adams, Andy Garcia and more — Damon ripped into the defenseless Kimmel, asking the audience, “Is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?” The episode arguably had more laughs than Kimmel’s entire career, and it was yet another reminder — as if one was necessary — of how insanely likeable Damon is.
