ICONIC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has been hosting his show for the past 18 years.
However, viewers of Jimmy Kimmel Live have been wondering why the prominent presenter has not been on his show.
Where is Jimmy Kimmel this week?
Jimmy decided to take a break from hosting his show for the summer.
In a statement released during one of his last episodes on the air, the 53-year-old explained his decision.
“I’m taking this summer off to spend even more time with my family”, the statement read.
“There’s nothing wrong, I’m healthy, my family’s healthy, I just need a couple of months off.”
And while fans will have to wait before hearing news of his return, the nightly show is still aired on ABC which begs the question: with Jimmy gone, who has been left in charge?
