Jimmy Kimmel Live with Regis & Kelly

Jimmy Kimmel is insane! This entire week, the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live will be sitting in for a vacationing Regis Philbin and co-hosting with Kelly Ripa on Live with Regis & Kelly. Crazy, right?! Host a show in the morning and then your own talk show at night? Well, what if I reminded you that Kimmel tapes his talk show in LA and Regis & Kelly tapes in New York? Now that’s just certifiable. But Kimmel is up for the challenge.

Each day this week, Jimmy will co-host with Ripa during the live 9am EST show and then board a plane and fly back to LA in order to host his late night gig there. When he’s done with this own show he jumps back on the plane and flies back across the country for the morning show in NYC. In case you lost track, that’s two cross country flights a day for 5 days straight. Talk about exhausting!!

Says Kimmel, “you can easily get in a rut when you’re doing a show every night and this is definitely not rut territory,” he said, adding, “if you give me enough advance notice, I will agree to almost anything.”

As for how he’s going to prepare for his late night show, he says, “For whatever we lose from not being able to prepare for a long time, I think we’ll gain in stories and stunts as it happens,” he said. “People can tune in and watch me collapse on air.”

And don’t think this gig isn’t without its perks. If there’s a good guest on “Live with Regis and Kelly,” he said, “I might force them on the plane and make them come back to L.A. with me.”

Best of luck, Jimmy. I’ll be watching you everyday on both coasts.

    Way to rack up the frequent flier miles Jimmy. Good luck with that.

    I wonder if there is a Guiness Record for the most flights in one week that he’ll be breaking.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!
