Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel tests positive for COVID
Jimmy Kimmel, who hosts his late-night talk show from Hollywood, announced Monday he has contracted COVID-19 and will temporarily step away from the program.
As a result, Monday night’s show was canceled. Kimmel apologized to the scheduled guests — actor Tom Cruise and comedian Iliza Shlesinger — and thanked Mike Birbiglia, “who’ll be filling in for me starting tomorrow night.”
“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” is filmed at the El Capitan Theatre complex on Hollywood Boulevard.
