Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel signed a two-year deal to continue hosting ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Deadline reported Monday.
Since the native Brooklynite created and began hosting the show in 2003 it has grown in total viewers (1.86 million), beating NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.79 million) and CBS’ "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.79 million).
Kimmel, 43, got his start on the Comedy Central cable network co-hosting "The Man Show" and "Win Ben Stein's Money."
The once-married, father of two, was romantically linked to fellow comedian Sarah Silverman until their split in 2009.
He is now dating Molly McNearney, a longtime staffer on his show.
