Jimmy Kimmel Live! is off tonight, March 4 ... and for good reason


Jimmy Kimmel Live! won't air a new episode tonight, March 4. However, there is a good reason the late-night TV show is taking Monday night off.

It was a busy weekend in politics and pop culture, providing plenty of material for a Jimmy Kimmel monologue. But late-night TV fans will have to wait to hear Kimmel's take on Donald Trump's rallies, the Supreme Court's election decision, and more.

There will not be a new episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight on ABC. That's because Kimmel and his team are preparing for the Academy Awards on March 10. Kimmel will be back hosting the Oscars once again.

So on Monday, ABC will re-air the February 23 episode. Interested fans can tune in to revisit appearances by Selena Gomez and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.
