Jimmy Kimmel Live! is an American late-night talk show, created and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, and transmitted on ABC. The nightly hour-long show made its debut on January 26, 2003, following Super Bowl XXXVII. Jimmy Kimmel Live! is produced by Jackhole Productions in association with ABC Studios. Having aired for more than twice as long as either the The Dick Cavett Show (1969–1975) or Politically Incorrect (1997–2002), it is the longest running late-night talk show in ABC's history at 14 years and counting as of 18 December 2017.

For its first ten years, the show aired at the either the Midnight or 12:05 AM timeslot before moving to 11:35 pm ET beginning on January 8, 2013 to more directly compete with The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Show with David Letterman while bumping the ABC nightly news program Nightline to 12:35 am ET.<ref>It’s Jimmy Kimmel vs. Leno and Letterman in January; ABC moves ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ to 11:35, ‘Nightline’ to 12:35, The Washington Post, August 21, 2012.</ref> Following the subsequent retirements of Leno in February 2014 and Letterman in May 2015, Kimmel is now the longest serving host in network late-night television.<ref>Jimmy Kimmel Signs On for 2 More Years with ABC, retrieved May 24, 2015</ref>

Contrary to its name, Jimmy Kimmel Live! does not air live; instead, it is taped at 4:30 pm Pacific Time on the day of broadcast. On rare occasions, though, it airs a special live edition, usually after major events like the Academy Awards ceremonies and 4-7 special half-hour episodes under the title Jimmy Kimmel Game Night airing in primetime that lead into ABC's coverage of the NBA Finals in June each year. Until 2009, new episodes aired five nights a week; from 2009 to 2012, the Friday episode was a rebroadcast of a recent episode. Starting with the January 2013 move, the Friday episode had been retitled Jimmy Kimmel Live! This Week, which showed highlights from the entire week of shows. However, the show has since reverted to airing a rebroadcast of a recent episode on Fridays.

On April 14, 2009 after the March sweeps break, the show began broadcasting in 720p high definition.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref> However, ABC stations that air the show on tape delay due to local programming and do not have the capability to air tape-delayed network programming in HD, air the show in 480i standard definition.
