LOS ANGELES, Feb 21, (Agencies): In January 2003, Jimmy Kimmel Live! made its debut, introducing a fresh face to the late-night landscape. Now, after 21 years, Jimmy Kimmel stands as the longest-serving late-night talk show host currently on air. As he reflects on his success, Kimmel hints at the potential end of his ABC talk show, contemplating his own future.

Expressing his surprise at his enduring position, Kimmel admitted, “I’m as surprised as anyone could be in this position— even having a really good job is a surprise to me.”

While Kimmel has previously entertained the idea of stepping away from hosting, he openly discussed it during an episode of Strike Force Five, the podcast initiated by Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, and Seth Meyers during the recent WGA and SAG strikes. Despite acknowledging the love he developed for hosting JKL! during the strikes, Kimmel has noticed a decline in his motivation for the show.

“It’s hard to yearn for it when you’re doing it,” remarked Kimmel, who faces the additional challenge of hosting this year’s Oscars ceremony. He recounted moments of exhaustion, revealing, “Wednesday night, I was very tired… revising and rewriting all these pitch ideas for the Oscars—and I was literally nodding off onto my computer.”

Reflecting on these moments, Kimmel expressed a desire for the end of his current contract. However, he acknowledged the cyclical nature of such feelings, noting, “But then, I take the summer off or I go on strike, and you start going, ‘Yeah, I miss the fun stuff.'”

Despite these sentiments, Kimmel conveyed a strong belief that his current contract might be his final one, leaving the future of Jimmy Kimmel Live! uncertain.
