ki filling in for me last night. [ applause ] last night, if you don't know, we staged live revivals of the shows "facts of life" and "diff'rent strokes" last night. live on abc. they're both on hulu now if you missed it. we had an incredible cast. kevin hart, jennifer aniston, damon wayans, jon stewart -- i'm not going to go through all the names but they were absolutely great. and we also had some surprise guests. snoop the dog was with us. [ cheers and applause ] played arnold and willis' friends. and jason bateman and will arnett played tim and dink, a couple of football players and they march in like lenny and squiggy. watch the background of this scene. they're wearing wigs. there's will and jason, you see there have an animated conversation. [ laughter ] and then -- lego batman smacks
11:37 pm
ozark right across the face. [ laughter ] illegal, i think. it was a long week and a fun show. tough on a tuesday night because i have to go to the work in the morning. my wife and i are at the party, go to bed around 1:00. at 2:00, one of the smoke detectors in our house start beeping. it's not the fire beep, it's the change the battery beep. i had to go all around the house, listening, to figure out which one it was. in my underpants the whole time. can someone please figure out a smoke detector that doesn't beep to let you know the battery is low after 10:00 at night? is that so difficult? [ cheers and applause ] i am so much more likely to die on a ladder at 3:00 a.m. than i am in a fire. [ laughter ] like times 110. i already have a device to shriek and wake me up in the middle of the night. it's called my son. [ laughter ] we now have a lead on at least
11:38 pm
one of the ways this omicron variant made its way across the country. the cdc is recommending that 53,000 people who attended an anime convention in new york last month get tested. because they may have been exposed to omicron. this event, basically it was comic-con for omicron. [ laughter ] 15 people tested positive for covid. none of them were women. of course. it was an anime convention. [ laughter ] omicron has now been confirmed in 20 states, including florida. florida yesterday reported their first case of omicron. and omicron reported its first case of florida. [ laughter ] but rest assured, governor omicron desantis will do everything he can to make sure as many floridians get infected as possible. [ cheers and applause ] there was some malicious holiday mischief outside the fox news building in new york this morning. midnight last night. the fox news christmas tree was engulfed in flames. the fire is believed to have
11:39 pm
started after fox news' pants caught on fire. [ laughter ] the fire is believed to have started because judge jeanine piro ate one too many rum balls and breathed on a cigarette. [ rim shot ] thank you. [ applause ] even though lighting trees on fire is very much in line with fox's position on climate change, the hosts of their morning show were very upset today. >> somebody climbed up in the tree and lit it on fire. it's beginning to look a lot like arson. >> who sets a christmas tree on fire? >> no city is safe no person is safe, from the subway on down. it's beginning to look a lot like arson. you know that one guy with a lighter is not going to stop us. >> nope, you can't burn us down. wear going to rebuild it. >> absolutely. >> we're going to rebuild it, we're going to build it back better. [ laughter and moans ] >> jimmy: build it back better? where have i heard that before? >> build back better!
11:40 pm
[ applause ] >> jimmy: oh my goodness, this war on christmas, i don't know who's on what side. nypd has a suspect in custody. but let's watch that clip again. because, i think the cops might want to take another look. >> we're going to rebuild it. we're going to build it back better. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: i mean, if you've ever had a dog or toddler, you recognize a guilty face is what it is. [ laughter ] the police say they don't believe the fire was politically motivated. and i would also add that it's not really a tree on went on fire. i've seen trees, this is not one of them. that is a hollow structure that sort of resembles a tree. in the same way tucker carlson is a hollow structure that sort of resembles a human. [ cheers and applause ] a tragedy nonetheless. did you know today is national brownie day? and to celebrate, a cannabis
11:41 pm
company in massachusetts baked what they claim is the world's biggest-ever pot brownie. this is the brownie, it's full of pot, and the chefs who made it. gee, i wonder which one of them taste-tested this brownie? [ laughter ] [ applause ] when asked why they did this, why they baked the world's largest brownie, no one could remember. [ laughter ] christmas is now less than three weeks away. this is that magical time of year when the hallmark channel answers the question, "how many movies with the word 'christmas' in the title can we make?" the answer is a lot. [ laughter ] have you seen these hallmark holiday movies? every year, hallmark puts out a slew of these festive films. and they're popular. so i wanted to get in on the action. so i set up a meeting to pitch some ideas to the real hallmark executives who decide which of these movies get the green light. here's how that went.
11:42 pm
♪ >> jimmy: hi, there. >> hi. >> jimmy: merry christmas, everybody. >> merry christmas. >> jimmy: hello, i'm jimmy. >> wonya. >> lisa. >> samantha, nice to meet you. >> jimmy: it's nice to meet you too. thanks for meeting with me. boy, you're really festive around here, huh? >> it's like this all the time. >> it's our life. >> jimmy: i know you guys make a lot of movies about the holidays. i'm just imagining at this point, how many have you made? >> several hundred? >> several hundred, yeah. >> jimmy: it must be hard to keep coming up with fresh ideas, right? >> it is tough. >> jimmy: good news, i'm gull of fresh ideas. literally jam-packed with them. i have some ideas i'd like to pitch you. okay? greg, have you had characters named greg? >> yes. >> jimmy: oh. [ laughter ] then it works. greg's girlfriend is taking him to meet her family over the holidays. but greg has a secret. every year at the stroke of midnight on christmas eve, greg turns into a gnome until new year's eve.
11:43 pm
will greg be able to impress her family as a hollow cement figurine? anything can happen when we go "gnome for the holidays." "there's no place like gnome." >> we've actually already been pitched "gnome for christmas." >> jimmy: about alaska or about a gnome? >> gnome. >> jimmy: i got beat to the gnome movie? you're not going to like any of my follow-ups. "when a-gnome." a gnome gets left at home by his parents. musicals? >> they turn to be more expensive. >> jimmy: a burned-out broadway star moves back to her hometown taking a job teaching drama at the local high school where she directs a winter production of "hamilton," the super-popular musical from broadway. and falls for the student playing aaron burr. yes, there are plenty of reasons why this relationship is a bad idea, including the fact that
11:44 pm
she's 60 and he's 18. but when it comes to love, she's not throwing away her shot in -- "a christmas hamilton." [ laughter ] >> i think it's really smart to trade on "hamilton." >> yeah. >> but i do think it's very creepy with the age difference. >> not good enough. >> jimmy: no, all right, luckily i have more. the elf has to lose his virginity by christmas today else he turns back to the toy. "sell of o "elf on the shelf." >> are you working on some weird sexual problems? >> jimmy: they have to start eating each other to stay alive. >> that's an interesting cute -- >> jimmy: it's an eat cute. they fall in love while sharing the last life preserver on the boat, "yule tied," starring jamie recessly and adam sandler's brother scott. a guy who donated to a sperm
11:45 pm
bank when he was in college finds out years later that he fathered 200 children. "father christmas." >> have you seen a hallmark movie? >> jimmy: do you want to keep doing the same thing over and over and over again? that's for you guys to decide. it's going to be cgi, mocap suits, the whole thing. >> the kids see their dad run their mom through a wood chipper? >>. >> jimmy: they help him because they know it's the right thing to do. >> you have a very wide range. pretty creepy, but wide range. >> jimmy: this is like a meta idea. after years of coming up with ideas for christmas movies, the hallmark executives have run out, they've done everything. so they hire the person who they think would be the best at coming up with more ideas. that person is? santa claus. okay? and guess what? he's horrible at it. he can't think of anything good. you guys then have to fire santa claus, and your children find
11:46 pm
out. and they are very upset with you. and then you have to win him back. and this one is exciting because you're all in it. wonya lucas, lisa hamilton daly, samantha in "deck the hallmark." >> i'd say that's an immediate green light. >> jimmy: you like it? great. >> are you going to play santa? we need you to have a cameo. >> jimmy: i've always wanted to gain weight for a role, i'm going to start packing it on. thank you, ladies. i feel really good about it. i cannot wait to be a part of the hallmark family. >> yeah, the hallmark family. >> jimmy: i'm excited to hopefully even direct you in this film. [ cheers and applause ] so guess what? i wrote a script. i put on 48 pounds. we spent three weeks filming in vancouver. and now $30 million later, i'm pleased this christmas to present the world premiere of the trailer for the soon to be holiday classic "deck the
11:47 pm
hallmark." >> when hallmark needed a christmas miracle -- >> we have 200 hours of original programming to fill. and no ideas. >> no new movies means -- >> we may have to dancancel christmas. >> what they got was a visit from an old friend. >> ho ho ho! >> santa! >> this christmas, help is on the sleigh. >> she falls for a half man, half wolf. >> okay. >> santa claws! get it? but in this one, rudolph's nose is a swedish meatball. >> right. >> like the ones at ikea. how about a christmas monkey that eats bugs out of santa's beard? and what does she get for christmas? a little something called chlamydia. >> stop. just stop. >> santa, we love you. but these ideas are horrible. >> oh. >> i'm sorry to say it, santa,
11:48 pm
but you're fired. >> oh! well, that's a hell of a kick in the pants. uh -- i'm just taking these. and this. and you're all on santa's naughty list now. forever. >> from the network that brought you "christmas comes twice," christmas talk toe," christmas in harmony," "christmas sail," "christmas treasure," "the nine kittens of christmas," "and our christmas journey" starring holly robinson peete. >> mom, mom, santa tweeted he's canceling christmas! >> why? >> because you said his stories don't track! i hate you! >> now three powerful executives from the big city -- >> we have to save christmas! >> have to save the holidays in the st. nick of time.
11:49 pm
starring daytime emmy award winner jimmy kimmel as kris kringle. holly robinson peete as mrs. claus. >> kris, have stood by your side. >> scott sandler as the voice of baby rudolph. >> brrr, i'm so cold! >> introducing wonya lucas, smanth that depippo, lisa hamilton daly as the evil killers of christmas fun. >> so ladies, with your brains so bright, won't you give my movie a green light? >> no! >> no! >> no! >> oh. then screw you! >> "deck the hallmark" tuesday night after only on hallmark. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we've got a good show tonight. from west site story, ariana debose is with us. [ cheers and applause ]

[ laughter ] and i want to be clear that i don't want to be exclusive. i know that there are mons evygender. >> jimmy: true. [ laughter ] >> but i am a man, and i'm a moron. >> jimmy: okay. >> so it was the holiday
11:56 pm
weekend, thanksgiving. it was a saturday morning. very early morning. and i fell down a step. one step. i rolled my ankle. and i felt pain like i had never felt before. and i collapsed onto the ground. and i was dry heaving because i was -- i was almost ready to throw up. but i was also laughing because it was really funny. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: really? >> yes. but after about 15 minutes, no one else was awake so i was trying to hold down my screams. [ laughter ] also my vomit. eventually, 15 minutes later, i got up. and i was like, all good, i can put a little weight on it, i'm going to shake it off. >> jimmy: uh-huh? > turns out you can't shake off mild to severe damaged and torn ligament. >> jimmy: you can't? what? >> no, but i tried. i talked to my wife, kaitlin. >> jimmy: what did she recommend? [ cheers ] >> yep, yep. she said, you have to go to the hospital. no, i'm going to shake it off. i talked to my mother-in-law,
11:57 pm
who is a retired e.r. nurse. she said, you have to go to the hospital. no, i'm going to shake it off. [ laughter ] i call my dad. want to take a guess what my dad says? >> jimmy: shake it off? >> shake it off. >> jimmy: rub a little dirt on it. [ applause ] >> yeah. so i -- i shake it off. you know. [ laughter ] and i go to bed that night. and i wake up the next morning. and my foot looks like a ham. [ laughter ] like a christmas ham. i turn to kaitlin and i said, i think i have to go to the hospital. and she's like, yeah! we go to the hospital. my whole thought was, oh, the hospital's busy, packed, i don't want to bother them. i get there and it's empty. sunday morning, the e.r. is empty. this is the middle of los angeles. i'm like, it's a holiday weekend, is it always this empty? the nurse said, don't worry, it will be packed this afternoon and tonight. >> jimmy: really? >> and i was like, why?
11:58 pm
do crazy things happen on sundays of holiday weekends? she said, no, they do them on friday and saturday and saturday night. and they shake it off. [ laughter ] and then they come into the hospital. an hour later, it will be packed. [ applause ] >> jimmy: how much longer are you going to have to have that thing on? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i don't know but it's not that bad, i get to move around. >> jimmy: they could make those better looking, those boots, right? it's like they're trying to humiliate you on top of you being injured. >> i think they're going for the science. >> jimmy: i see. >> before they go for the aesthetic. i will say it actually is fairly comfortable. >> jimmy: well, yeah, it better be, because it doesn't look good. [ laughter ] i was talking about this. it's really amazing. because i remember when i started watching this show with my son, who is now a fully grown adult, 15 seasons of "it's always sunny in philadelphia." [ cheers and applause ] the longest-running live-action
11:59 pm
sitcom of all time on television. you beat "ozzie and harriet," which was in black and white, that's how long ago. was that always your intention, to beat "ozzie and harriet"? >> oh, yeah, that's what we were going for. >> jimmy: you for targeted them? >> no, honestly, we love making and it they keep paying for it. [ laughter ] for some reason people keep watching it so we keep making it. >> jimmy: you guys are doing a podcast together now n? >> yeah. >> jimmy: whose idea was that? >> we'd been talking about ate few years. maybe just do it for promotion for the show? it would be great to keep the word out there, this will be our 15th season. so we did this podcast. and we just thought we'd put it out there, a few people would listen, it would be a good way to promote "sunny." >> jimmy: it's super popular. do we have that chart? it's the number two podcast in the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ]
12:00 am
it's just under "the joe rogan experience." then a lot of murder. >> yeah. people like rogan, sunny, and murder, apparently. [ laughter ] we're neck and neck with joe rogan, which that's quite an accomplishment. >> jimmy: do you give covid advice? [ laughter and applause ] this show is primarily for people who are fans of the show. you talk about things that maybe we didn't know. like that story about the video camera. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and about danny devito wasn't necessarily your first thought as far as -- >> no, no. no, we didn't want to add danny. we didn't want to add another character to the show. then we got a call from john langraph, chairman of the studio, "we need to add another character to the show, someone with cachet." "we don't want to do that." "then i don't want to pick up your tv star." "get us a star!"
12:01 am
>> jimmy: little did danny devito know, he probably thought he was a guest spot for clowns. >> yes, he built into his contract he'd only work ten days of the entire season. >> jimmy: for the year?p>> i'm figure this out. we did that to protect himself from us being clowns. i think the fourth day he was like, these guys are clowns but the good kind of clowns. >> jimmy: we'll raise to it 11. here we are, 15 seasons later. the show is picked up through 18 seasons? >> yes. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we're going to take a break. when we come back, we're going to see a scene from the new season. rob mcelhenney is with us from "it's always sunny in philadelphia." we'll be right back. >> announcer: portions of "jimmy kimmel live" are brought to you by petsmart. anything for pets. everythi ♪ ♪ to me ♪ ♪ i know that ♪

12:09 am

imaginable -- as anita in the new steven spielberg version of "west side story." ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: "west side story" opens in theaters only on friday. please welcome ariana debose. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> wow, wow! >> jimmy: this must be a very exciting week for you. >> it is. >> jimmy: how long -- now, this movie was supposed to come out like a year ago, right? >> yeah, wow. >> jimmy: you had to wait for this, this thing that you've worked on.
12:24 am
who maybe started to think, ife- maybe she wasn't in "west side story"? [ laughter ] >> many people definitely thought i was lying. but you know who it was really hard for? steven. he has to be the greatest secret-keeper of all-time. he's in the editing room making this thing, every day he knows what he has. he's just like, cool, cool, cool -- nah, let's wait. nah, let's wait. what? >> jimmy: you think this was harder for him than you? >> of course it was hard for us. i mean -- it's a film made with such joy and love. and quite frankly, that's what we all need right about now. [ cheers and applause ] so i'm just really glad to be frank that we waited because it's a cinematic experience. >> jimmy: you want people to be in the movie theater to see it. >> yeah. last night was our premiere. [ cheers and applause ] yeah, it's so cool. and kid you not, it was like watching a broadway show. because people were reacting in ways that you don't really see in a movie theater.
12:25 am
literally, after every musical number, clapping. whoo! i was like, well, this is great. it feels like broadway came to the cinema, in a way. it's really lovely. >> jimmy: you met steven spielberg backstage at "hamilton" when you were in the cast? >> yeah, i'm an original company member of "hamilton." [ cheers and applause ] he was signing the wall. there's a wall. well, it was chris jackson's dressing room. you know, here comes the general. he wrote, "this is history." steven spielberg. and he -- >> jimmy: i wrote "wassap?" >> i saw that too. >> jimmy: actually, they asked me not to sign the wall. "just keep walking through." >> steven walked down the stairs and i said, "sir, thank you for coming to our little skit." and he said, "skit, that's good." we just had a very brief
12:26 am
conversation. later on making the movie he was like, i remember meeting you. i said, i don't know how, it was in passing. he said, no, i had a thought, i think i'm going to make something with her. i thought, that is wild, and esp. [ cheers ] >> jimmy: that's the same thing he said to e.t., did you know that? [ laughter ] a great director, a very good actor. >> jimmy: do you think he wasn't telling the truth? i bet he was telling the truth. >> i don't think he has the power to be disingenuous. he's a really good man. >> jimmy: that is something else, that he saw you, then he met you, then he said, yeah, i'm going to tuck that away. then the next thing you know, you're in this movie that people are saying, first of all, the reviews are phenomenal for the movie. the reviews for you are phenomenal. people are saying you'll get an oscar nomination and all of this stuff. [ cheers and applause ] that must be overwhelming. >> it is. thank you. you know what? it is overwhelming. there are some days i don't think about it and some days i'm just like, holy cow, how did i
12:27 am
get here? >> jimmy: yeah. >> i know exactly how i got here, but it's just so -- so thrilling. we worked so hard for so long on something we really loved. and to be able to give it to the world and have it received positively. because sometimes you work really hard and it's not received positively. [ laughter ] but also we got to make the movie with rita moreno. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: which is unbelievable. she played anita, she won the oscar for her performance in that role. >> she did. >> jimmy: at our house growing up, i had -- i think we had like six or seven albums. that was it. >> right. >> jimmy: "west side story" was one of them. it's kind of sacred to a lot of people, this thing. and so rita's opinion of your performance must have been very important to you, i would think? >> yeah. i mean -- i'm -- >> jimmy: no, it was not? >> no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. [ laughter ] i'm always a little nervous when it comes to rita. i'm nervous when it comes to gina rivera. she played the role on broadway. these are really large shoes to fill, you know? it is an award-winning role.
12:28 am
and it's a role that means a lot to the broadway community. and having worked on broadway for ten years, that's important to me. it's a role that means a lot to latinos. [ cheers and applause ] and i just -- as a latina, i'm really proud that i'm able to do this because this is the thing rita gave me. she let me see that i had possibility. there was the possibility of my success. because she sort of looked like me. she was the closest thing i could find in movie musicals, to be perfectly honest. now i get to be the lady in the yellow dress with the red skirt for some young afro latina, for some young girl who looks like me. [ cheers and applause ] that's what this is about. i'm excited to be in any sort of conversation at all. but it's really about, you know, carrying on that legacy. >> jimmy: rita turns 90 this weekend. >> she does. she does, like whoa. >> jimmy: are you going to get her anything? are you that close that you
12:29 am
would buy her a gift? >> yes, of course. but if i told you, it wouldn't be a surprise. >> jimmy: i see, okay. you have something in mind, or our just making that up? [ laughter ] >> maybe i'll buy her another bra. >> jimmy: what? >> just go with me, go with me on this. we did a photo shoot. and i had this black bra that i bought from target. like years ago. you know what i mean? and she said, that's a really nice bra. what size are you? and i was like, 34b. she was like, me too, hm. [ laughter ] and so i finally said, you know what, you like this bra, rita? you can have my bra. [ laughter ] she took my bra. >> jimmy: wow. [ applause ] >> jimmy: i didn't know that was a thing people did. >> last night at our l.a. premiere, i was wearing a giorgio armani custom red thing. i'm doing a red thing right now. it had this beautiful ruby thing. it was like a thing.
12:30 am
i don't even know how to describe it. it was just -- it was, i don't know, kind of revealing. it was a risk. it was a fashion risk for me. >> jimmy: okay. >> and she walked up to me, she said, ari what are you wearing, you look great, but what is this? i said, it's a thing. she goes, no, open your jacket. she opened it for me. then immediately went, ha! [ laughter ] [ applause ] i said, oh my god, rita moreno is at my boobs! [ applause ] >> jimmy: maybe it would be nice for her birthday, give her your underpants while you're at it. [ laughter ] just an idea. >> she's going to kill me for telling you this. i don't know, it just -- she's 90. she has earned the right to do absolutely anything she wants to o. >> jimmy: yeah, sure. >> quite frankly, if she wants to be that close with me, i'm okay with it. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: ariana debose, everybody! "west side story" opens in theaters on friday. we'll be back with sting!
