In 1997, Jimmy would try his hand in television by co-hosting the popular Comedy Central game show “Win Ben Stein’s Money.” Ben Stein and Jimmy would earn an Emmy award for Best Game Show Host. This helped Jimmy co-host and co-produce the network’s “The Man Show” and “Crank Yankers.”

Jimmy would get his biggest break in show business by earning his own late-night talk show on ABC called “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” It has become one of the most popular late-night talk shows on television to this day. He has been nominated for several television awards for the show.
