Far-left late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who is currently one of the most polarizing and divisive personalities in the country, admitted he has seen polls that show that his partisanship has cost me commercially.
According to polls Ive seen, it has cost me commercially, he told Oprah Winfrey in an interview for her O Magazine. Thats not ideal, but I wouldnt change anything I said.
I know my job is, for the most part, to entertain people and make them laugh. That said, if I can be selfish every once in a while and talk about something serious thats important to me, then I do want to take that opportunity, Kimmel added. But I dont want to abuse my position. I pick my battles. Ninety percent of the time, Ill joke around, but some of the jokes, I hope, make people think.

It’s not only cost him commercially, but viewly as well.
Did he cry again?
That means it’s cost his bosses commercially, and they don’t seem to care.
We’re in a real dogfight here because it appears that the other side values political orthodoxy over going broke.
Thats not ideal, but I wouldnt change anything I said.
There are some things more important than money, like approval from you fellow travelers at cocktail parties.
Alternatively, better to lose a few dollars by alienating viewers that you hate anyway, than to upset the Hollywood elite and kill your career completely and irrevocably.
To make people think, one must first be able to think for himself.
Kimmel doesn't think. He parrots a line of party or ideology without bothering to understand what the hell he is saying. And he sincerely believes that because an audience of immature buffoons laughs at him, that this qualifies him as an intellectual.
Maybe he can go on tour with Kathy Griffin
If he’d bother to check, it’s cost him his boy-parts as well.
He has socked away enough money that he doesn’t care.
Oh, boo hoo, you big frickin' baby. Try being a conservative in Hollywood...where's it's hard to get the time of day, let alone your own show.
Jimmy Kimmel on ‘The Man Show’ with ‘Guess what’s in my pants’.
They do. It's what it makes them think that's the problem, Jimmy. They think you're a jackass.
Who is this again? I don’t see him on my list of entertainers.
Yes. They make people think you're nothing but a boring jerk!
His career should be grass
Oh, they’ll care..........after the next shareholders’ meeting................
He’s a little girly man and he’s not funny.
He's a jerk.
Jay Leno mocked Presidents equally. Loved the Lewinsky Dancers.
I concur with your statement. His comment: According to polls Ive seen, it has cost me commercially, ... sounds to me like it has not hit him very hard (if at all) financially.
These people are so arrogant and have so much money that the heights of their folly will not hit them until they have to ask for a job at Wal-mart.
