Jimmy Kimmel has just renewed his Jimmy Kimmel Live! contract for two more years, extending his stay on ABC until January 2017, the New York Times reports.
The decision to extend the 46-year-old comedian’s contract locks him in to be in competition with Tonight Show‘s Jimmy Fallon over on NBC and Stephen Colbert‘s show over on CBS.
This season of Jimmy Kimmel Live! is the fourth straight season to grow in audience numbers.
Meanwhile, Craig Ferguson just announced he is leaving his CBS show, and Chelsea Handler will be leaving her E! show – those slots have yet to be filled with late night hosts.
ARE YOU EXCITED to see more Jimmy Kimmel Live!??
