How the hell has this episode not been reviewed yet??
17 May 2019 | by Cpt_JackSparrowSee all my reviews

Jut my 2 cents. THIS is what thinking outside the box gets you! This was a FANTASTIC episode! I understand that it can't be done all the time due to the schedules of the many celebrities that appeared on the show but WOW... just WOW!

I couldn't stop laughing! Seeing the actors and actresses portraying their alternate selves that loathe Jimmy Kimmel was absolutely hilarious. And dare I say, I WOULD actually watch a show where Matt Damon were the host! I'd say that this episode may backfire on Jimmy Kimmel but I'm 6 years too late because he's still doing fine!

We don't get this sort of thing with talk shows anymore and it's sad. I really wish more late night shows would do this kinda stuff and not shy away.
