What should Jimmy Kimmel Live! fans expect to see tonight on ABC?

It’s been a busy, exhausting, and entertaining week in late-night television. So what should fans expect to see from Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Friday night?

Kimmel was right there with the rest of late-night television covering the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. The ABC host then followed that up with even more jokes and commentary, zeroing in on President Trump’s most controversial moment of the night.

Then the comedian turned his attention to basketball later in the week. He hosted his annual game night special ahead of Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat.

Fans know that Kimmel usually doesn’t do a show on Fridays and considering he already pulled double duty once this week, it’s understandable to think he’d be off tonight. Not so fast.

There will be a brand new episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight on ABC. In fact, you’ll get two doses of Kimmel.

First, Kimmel will chat with Matthew McConaughey and Dwayne Wade prior to Game 2 of the Finals. Then he’ll be back at his regular time to talk with Shaquille O’Neal about the Finals and his role in the Netflix movie Hubie Halloween. Next, ESPN basketball analyst Rachel Nichols will join the show. Things close out with a performance by A$AP Ferg.
