time now for tonight's closing arguments. 17 months after filing for bankruptcy, general motors made a splashy return to the stock market today with executives ringing the opening bell on the new york stock exchange. gm shares closed at just above $34. the obama administration hailed the occasion as evidence that its $49 billion bailout of the company last year was working. so, tonight, we ask you, did the bailout work? was it worth it? tell us what you think at the "nightline" facebook page or on the "nightline" page at abcnews.com. and finally tonight, a tragic update from authorities in the search for three missing people in knox county, ohio,

12:12 am
[ applause ] and how do i know that? i don't know that. i made that up. but it sounds good, right? sounds successful. national unfriend day was a big success. no one has any friends anymore. and that's what i wanted. my dream is that some day people will only be friends with their friends. i dream of a world where i don't have any idea what cities the guy i shared a junior high school locker with has visited in his adulthood. much like dr. martin looulter kimmel jr. the good news is, i've come up with a new social networking tool that you can use with your friends. it's called the telephone, and it amazing. i do feel bald for people who lost more friends than they unfriended. i've been hearing from some of them on twitter. losing friends, even fake facebook friends who aren't really your friends at all can come as a bit of a shock, so, i called a friend, a real friend, who is good with this sort of thing to help those who need it during this difficult time. >> hi, i'm dr. drew. being unfriended can be painful
12:13 am
and even disorienting. if you need help, don't be afraid to ask for it. >> how can i get past this and make new friends? >> when will the humiliation of being unfriended go away? >> why do i feel like such a loser? >> you can't, it won't and because you are, bitch. for national unfriend day, i'm dr. drew. >> jimmy: that's dr. drew. he has the guts to say the things that other doctors won't. [ applause ] unfriending is good for you. you know that feeling you get when you finally get around to cleaning out your garage and then it's clean for three weeks before you start filling it with crap again? this is the emotional version of that. the weemdweeds have been pulled. tonight, we say good-bye to the unfriended.
12:14 am
>> jimmy: that's the way i look at it. so, good-bye, unfriends. today, by the way is the 35th annual great american smokeout, which -- they really need to rename that. smokeout sounds like fun.
12:15 am
sounds like cookout. like having a hooray for herpes day. this is a day where smokers are encouraged to quit smoking. my cousin sal is very pro soaking people with a fire extinguisher and anti-smoking. he combined his passions to do his part to stop smoking once and for all. >> hey kevin? happy great american smokeout. do something about that hair, too. happy national smokeout. supposed to be a super hero for god sakes. set a good example. >> you definitely put me out. >> shut up. happy -- i'm saving your life, for crying out loud. >> [ bleep ]. get out of here. all right, enough is enough. stop it. stop it.

12:17 am
mortgage. it's not as much fun as the others, but you want to drive a little kid nuts? keep calling it larry potter over and over again. they hate it. this is the seventh of eight harry potter movies. they changed this a little from the book but there's no question that the villain in this film is harry's most formidable opponent yet. >> face nod greater threat than it does today. but you can't fight this war on your own, mr. potter. it's too strong. ♪ baby ♪ baby ♪ baby oh ♪ baby ♪ baby ♪ baby oh >> kill it! ♪ thought you'd always be mine >> the longer we stay here, the stronger he gets.
12:18 am

[ applause ] >> all 26.2 miles of it. yes. >> jimmy: it's funny, because i honestly, i always think about, it's 26 miles and i think, the .2 would be enough of a problem for me. you can't forget that. >> why do they tack on the .2? >> jimmy: it seems unnecessary. >> 26 miles is enough. >> jimmy: that's more than enough. you trained -- did you train for a long time? >> about six months. >> jimmy: is that typical or is that -- >> that's what they told me you needed to do. >> jimmy: you had a guy, like, helping you? >> i had a coach who was running with me several times a week and inhad some long runs on my own
12:30 am
but they said, yeah, six months is a good amount of time to train for a marathon. >> jimmy: did your coach run with you at the marathon? >> he did. he's one of the crazy triathletes and getting ready for an ironman competition so this was just a little run for him. >> jimmy: easy for him? >> he was -- when i was struggling and i would have to stop to walk, he was dancing. they would have bands on the side of the road, and he would be -- do you like to dance? >> jimmy: that's annoying. that's very annoying. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: did you stop at all? >> i did. in fact, you know, you have to -- when you get up to running several hours, you have to eat while, you know, you have to take care of your daily -- >> jimmy: i would eat a whole roast beef on the way. >> on the road, as you're running. and i was trying to survive on these crazy gels which are just these syrupy sweet sticky things and it wasn't doing me any good. i said, i need real food. i need a bagel. and they don't have, you know,
12:31 am
there's no food. >> jimmy: no one handing those out on the course? >> so, i left the race course. we're in manhattan. we figured, just walk out the barricade, you are find a bagel and we'll get back in. we found the one block in new york where there was no bagel store. so i walked a couple of blocks before i could -- >> jimmy: you went and found a bagel -- >> i had to. i would have never finished the race. i was at mile 15 -- >> jimmy: wait a minute. is that -- did you technically run the marathon? by the way, that's -- >> everybody keeps says, you know, that was illegal -- they weren't expecting me to win the race, so, i didn't -- >> jimmy: you didn't win, right? the kenyans win because they never stop. >> they don't stop for anything. they -- what took me six hours and 13 minutes to do, the winning runner, he did it in two hours and eight minutes. >> jimmy: unbelievable. >> crazy. >> jimmy: they don't have cars in kenya, so they have to -- their feet are their form of
12:32 am
transportation. >> they really have to do that. i don't know why we're doing that. >> jimmy: you are a vegan now. how long have you been -- >> about four years. >> jimmy: four years. [ applause ] >> thank you, thank you. >> jimmy: that guy clapping is not a vegan, by the way. i don't know -- you're not a vegan. >> he was slapping two pieces of meat together. >> jimmy: technically, i guess he was. but do you feel like, i mean, that has made you more energetic -- >> everybody has this imagination that if they are not eating this substantial food that they normally eat that they're going to die. and that's not the case. i do, i have more energy, i love the way i eat, i don't even like that puffy full feeling anymore. >> jimmy: i love it. >> i know. that's what everybody is going for when they sit down. i don't even like that. >> jimmy: my colon feels like it's filled with insulation. it's incredible. little pieces of glass in there. >> all kinds of things in there. >> jimmy: you've been on a lot
12:33 am
of diets. we have a list. the master cleanse. juice diet. martha's vineyard diet detox. the 21-day fast. fat burning beads taped to the ears. >> that was an experiment. i was just checking that out. >> jimmy: coffee enemas. >> of course. i went to guatemala -- and they grow coffee there. and they kept trying to offer me cups, i said, that's not what i do with it. >> jimmy: i need it in a hose. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: you were on the riker's island diet. >> the riker's island diet? >> jimmy: the kitten diet, which is nothing but milk and yarn. that was not -- >> that was not me. >> jimmy: but this is the one. this, for you -- >> i love the way i eat. i never want to go back. i, you know, i've had people say to me, what do you miss, and i only miss something occasionally if i actually see -- >> jimmy: bacon. >> i never liked bacon even when
12:34 am
i wasn't -- >> jimmy: oh -- i'm having my bacon heart attack right now. >> you know what, i got -- i was in this little place called lambertville, new jersey, once, we were at a reception, and they were passing bacon as an hors d'oeuvre. big piles of bacon walking around on silver platters and people were grabbing it -- >> jimmy: of course they were, it's bacon. i like that. nobody -- you don't need the lettuce and the tomato. right for the bacon. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: will you have an lt sandwich? >> sure. >> jimmy: that's terrible. >> no, that's wonderful. what kind of life is this? >> you know what, vegetables, they run the span of texture, taste -- >> jimmy: boyfriends. >> oh, gosh, you're terrible. >> jimmy: that's probably -- we probably shouldn't go into that. >> really. >> jimmy: nothing is sacred. >> i was very young. >> jimmy: your personal life
12:35 am
is -- everything you do is subject to examination. even your 15 foundation, which is a great thing you do, charity is very positive -- >> you love that. >> jimmy: i just think it's crazy. i listen to, you know, you're going to guatemala, the countries and helping people and all you get is abuse. >> yes, absolutely. because the people on my show have such big hearts. they really care. >> jimmy: and, well, i think they probably do, but it's beyond, you know, like, for instance, howard would probably not go to guatemala and live in a hut. >> oh, no. we went to the home of a guatemalan family and they served us food and i ate it. and howard said, are you out of your mind? what is that? >> jimmy: well, it seems to be keeping them alive. >> and they were so sweet and gracious. >> jimmy: but people don't understand that. what do you guys do, the 15 foundation? what is the primary -- >> we actually put the 15 foundation together to help
12:36 am
organizations that have targeted problems of children in this country right now -- >> jimmy: we have to get rid of the children. >> effective solutions -- not to get rid of them. it's to help them develop. >> jimmy: to help them develop. that's great. that's great. >> and so we actually target people who have wonderful ideas that are great solutions to some of the problems we see today and we try to shine a little light on them and raise the money for them. >> jimmy: and that's why you ran the marathon in the first place. >> for two organization, the sylvia center and family cook productions, who teach children about nutritious. >> jimmy: great. now, speaking of athletics, we had an incident here on the show a week ago today, well, here's what happened. let's show what happened. that's gary dell bat tee. it's a long story, but he's had some well publicized difficulties -- but you brought -- >> why did you stand in the audience when you had gary pitching? >> jimmy: just stupidity, i don't know. i thought -- i really thought he

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: good to see you. i'd like to begin with a passage from your book. >> i think i know the one.
12:43 am
>> jimmy: page 121. kimmel didn't fit the usual phys physical prerequisites of a tv star. not really overweight but slightly puffy. he looked less like a leading man and a relaxed fit jeans model. hooded eyes that made him look sleepy. jimmy didn't figure to win a lot of face roles from casting directors or style points from the fashion police. but he made up for those shortcoming with spirit. thanks, bill. >> well -- [ cheers and applause ] i like -- >> jimmy: is that necessary to describe what i look like? anyone buying this book has a decent idea of what i look like. >> yeah, but it's an artist's -- >> jimmy: yes. years from now people will know i was puffy. i was originally p-diddy and
12:44 am
then turned to puffy. thank you for that description. >> i said nice things about you. >> jimmy: there are many nice things. let me tell you, if you are interested in late night tv and i presume if people are watching, they've passed out or -- >> especially if they are watching with me on. >> jimmy: that's right. a lot of stuff that, even i didn't know and i know a lot of the stuff that goes on because sometimes it involves me. but you managed to -- did you talk to everybody that you wanted to talk to for this book? >> everybody but one. >> jimmy: who was the one? >> dave. >> jimmy: letterman. >> yeah. >> jimmy: he has no time for this kind of thing. >> he doesn't want to be involved. >> jimmy: did that surprise you? >> not really. >> jimmy: did you talk to him for "the late shift?" >> extensively. he liked it. but he's not cooperating with the press much anymore. >> jimmy: i guess it is kind of a no-win type of deal. the first book was about the struggle between letterman and leno. and this centers around the
12:45 am
struggle between conan o'brien and jay. and there seems to be a recurring theme there to me. >> there is a theme. it seems like one person plays a role in every one of these events. >> jimmy: is jay leno the devil? let's get right to that. >> no, he does seem to always be there. maybe a vampire. >> jimmy: i think -- well, i guess you probably wouldn't say who the villain is in the book. jeff zucker, who is the head of nbc, he -- >> he's cast that way. but i think -- it wasn't from evil intent, it was just kind of being bone headed, i guess. >> jimmy: yeah. you have heard from him since you wrote the book? >> his people. >> jimmy: his people. they liked it? >> they were okay with it. >> jimmy: they were? wow. >> they said, hard to read and relive but accurate and well told. >> jimmy: there you go. and jay leno, in the first book, i guess -- maybe the thing people remember the most is him hiding in the closet, listening to the nbc executives talk about him. he's not in the closet in this one. >> i don't know what that means,
12:46 am
but yeah, no. at least he didn't tell me that. he did talk to me at great length. >> jimmy: he did? >> as did most of the other players including yourself. >> jimmy: yes, we talked a lot. i love hearing all of this stuff. >> and he was, you know, certainly chastened by the experience. he was feeling it when i talked to jay. he was not happy. >> jimmy: what i came away from the book is i feel like conan was treated very badly by nbc. >> yeah. i think he was because they promised him the show. five years ago. they started this thing to say, five years will get "the tonight show" if you give up being on fox or somewhere else. he agreed to that and played by all the rules, did what they wanted and first they moved jay to 10:00 ahead of him and then -- >> jimmy: how did that go? >> that didn't go well at all. in fact, one of the things i learned myself in the reporting was, you know, it seemed like he had -- it faded in three months. but it was six weeks, the stations wanted him off the air, it was doing so badly. they decided to put him back at
12:47 am
