Jimmy Kimmel Live!

A buzzed cut superhero seizing the star-crested vibranium shield from his former patriotic mentor, country twang superstar popping out of a retro lookbook with floral pants, and a standup comedian recently tossed onto a stranded beach with thorned roses all perch behind a desk with a Jimmy Kimmel name plaque. 

They won’t all be battling it out game-show style to have a seat at his desk. Rather, the host for the 18-year spanning talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, is seeking a chillax sabbatical. Starting two weeks ago, the likes of Wanda Sykes, Nick Kroll, David Spade, Anthony Mackie, Sarah Silverman, Julie Bowen, Maren Morris, and Phoebe Robinson, will be in the selection of celebrity hosts taking Kimmel’s place.

Even according to an Instagram comment, fine-tuning his accent vocal cords, Niall Horan, will be appearing somewhere in August (the month that’s exactly two weeks from now!).

Make sure to tune in to Jimmy Kimmel Live! at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
