Jimmy Kimmel Takes Summer Break From Hosting ABC Late Night Show
Jimmy Kimmel takes "a few months off" from his ABC talk show, the moderator said on Thursday.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" will take a two-week break from next week before continuing on Monday, July 6, with episodes hosted by guests.
"Jimmy takes the time to spend more time with his family," the network said in a statement. "He's been doing this job for almost 18 years, 3,130 shows, and will take a few months off." While Jimmy is gone, a cavalry of very friendly and capable people will step in for him. "

The presenter announced his break on Thursday, telling viewers that "there is nothing wrong with him or his family" and that the temporary break is simply a necessary break from the show every night.
No information was given about who the innkeepers would be.
Kimmel had a break from "Live!" As early as 2017, when his son Billy underwent open heart surgery a few days after his birth. The innkeepers during this break included Chris Pratt, Tracee Ellis Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy.
