Jimmy Kimmel has apparently accepted his role as a far left TV host. He recently said that he doesn’t really care if he loses Republican viewers.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Jimmy Kimmel on losing Republican viewers of his late-night comedy show: ‘Not good riddance, but riddance’
Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel said he would perform the same emotionally-charged monologues about healthcare and gun violence “again in a heartbeat,” despite a drastic reduction in Republican viewership of his show.
“Three years ago, I was equally liked by Republicans and Democrats,” Kimmel told CBS’ “Sunday Morning” of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” which has aired on ABC since 2003. “And then Republican numbers went way down, like 30 percent, or whatever. And you know, as a talk show host, that’s not ideal but I would do it again in a heartbeat.”…
“But if they’re so turned off by my opinion on healthcare and gun violence then, I don’t know, I probably wouldn’t want to have a conversation with them anyway,” he continued. “Not good riddance, but riddance.”

I can’t imagine studio execs very happy with this. Alienating half the country is bad business, ask the NFL. https://t.co/xnXTq9ePlr

Have fun doing your show for only half of the country, Jimmy.
