Jimmy Kimmel isn’t going everywhere.
The comedian is remaining in their late-night talk tv show while he finalized a three-year agreement extension with ABC.
The bargain finishes a-year of conjecture in the late-night neighborhood after Kimmel informed Howard Stern which he ended up being debating whether or not to stick or twist.

The bargain implies that he can surpass Jay Leno, which hosted NBC’s The Tonight Show for 22 many years — though Kimmel continues to have a couple of years to attend get caught up to Conan O’Brien, which invested 28 many years in late-night; Johnny Carson, which hosted The Tonight Show for three decades; and Kimmel’s hero David Letterman, which invested 33 many years in late-night.
‘After 2 full decades at ABC, Im today getting excited about 3 years of whatever they call “quiet quitting,”‘ Kimmel, 54, quipped in a statement Tuesday in regards to the future of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
