The 8th annual post-Oscar telecast of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars" was up over the prior year for the 2nd year in a row, growing by 15% in Total Viewers (5.786 million vs. 5.035 million) and by 9% in Adults 18-49 (2.031 million vs. 1.864 million), marking "JKL's" most-watched post-Oscar telecast ever. Host Jimmy Kimmel welcomed Academy Award Winner Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum. Kimmel also debuted the trailer to "Movie: The Movie Twovie," the highly anticipated sequel to "Movie: The Movie," starring among others Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Salma Hayek, John Krasinski and Samuel L.
