Jimmy Kimmel on hosting his own show plus the Emmys

Hosted by

One of the best-known recurring bits on Jimmy Kimmel Live! is "Mean Tweets," in which celebrities happily read aloud the nasty things that people say about them on the internet.  But when Kimmel started hosting the show more than 13 years ago, just getting guests to appear at all was a challenge. Kimmel tells us about the struggle of those early days and his plans for hosting the Emmys -- which includes writing hundreds of jokes, but not an acceptance speech, even though his show is nominated.
