Jimmy Kimmel Live is on all summer long, but Kimmel is taking a break from his late-night show.
Sean Hayes, Chelsea Handler, Anthony Anderson, Mark Rober, Dana Carvey, Kerry Washington, and RuPaul are just some of the guest hosts who have been on the show.
Simu Liu, Jeff Goldblum, and Nicole Byer are just some of the guest hosts who are still to come. But Jimmy Kimmel fans shouldn’t worry: the host will be back.
Why Is Jimmy Kimmel Not On Jimmy Kimmel Live?
Because Kimmel had tested positive for COVID-19 the previous time, guest hosts were brought in to replace him. This time, the host is taking a summer vacation, as many late-night hosts do.
He is not alone in this, of course. Since June 26, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has been on hiatus; the next episode isn’t scheduled to air until July 24. Earlier in July, both The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert took a two-week vacation.
But Kimmel’s break is a little bit longer. This is because the three-year deal the host signed to keep his show in 2019 included a summer hiatus (according to Last Night On).
The host stated: “There’s nothing wrong, I’m well, my family’s healthy, I simply need a couple of months off” at the time of his first break in June 2020.
