JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE: AFTER THE OSCARS to Re-Air 2/28
The 8th annual "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars" special featuring Channing Tatum and Academy Award(r) winner Jamie Foxx, which originally aired on Sunday, February 24, will have a special encore presentation on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. This year's "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars" marked "JKL's" most-watched post-Oscar telecast in the franchise's history.
Last year, "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards" premiered a trailer for "Movie: The Movie" -- the biggest, most star-studded and spectacular non-existent film the world has never seen. "Movie: The Movie" has garnered over 30 million views on Youtube alone. After a blockbuster success in Hollywood, there is only one thing to do -- cheapen it with a sequel. This year, Kimmel presented the world premiere trailer for "Movie: The Movie Twovie," starring Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Salma Hayek, John Krasinski, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruno Mars and many more -- even that jerk Matt Damon.
