The ABC complex on Manhattan’s upper west side is home to ABC News, “Live! with Kelly,” and local New York station WABC. Diane Sawyer also makes a cameo in the video (as do her dozens of Emmys).

Jimmy Kimmel, known for his YouTube challenges, turned the tables for Father’s Day.
Normally the adults are the ones wreaking havoc on their children, but Kimmel got kids to spray their dads with a hose.
Dick Clark, who launched American Bandstand, and decades later gave millions a New Year’s Eve alternative, died today of a massive heart attack in California at age 82. The man long considered an influential figure in the world of broadcasting and rock music, was nicknamed “America’s Oldest Teenager” for his perpetual and youthful, good looks.
Clark suffered a stroke in 2004 causing partial paralysis. His speech was also affected as noticed each year since in his New Year’s Rockin’ Eve broadcast from Times Square. In 2005, he was joined by American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, who did the heavy lifting.
Clark was a standout talent behind the camera as well. He was the chairman and chief executive of the production company that bears his name.
“He was the absolute best,” Norm N. Nite, former WCBS-FM air personality, tells FishbowlNY. “Nobody did it better than Dick Clark. What can you say about a guy you know for 40 years?”
Jimmy Kimmel is out to expose Uggie, the Jack Russell Terrier from The Artist, as a total fraud.
During his talk show Tuesday night, Kimmel provided video evidence that proved the dog that appeared on his show last month was different from the pooch in the film that won Best Picture at the Oscars.
The latest stop on the Will Ferrell Casa De Mi Padre media tour is ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Ferrell has made the rounds promoting his new Spanish language film by conducting some of his interviews en Español.
So, Jimmy will have to brush up on his Spanish with Guillermo the security guard before his interview with Ferrell Tuesday night.
For my fellow gringos out there, there will be English subtitles to go along with the interview.
Apparently, they have bigger fish to fry than getting DeGeneres fired from her gig with the retail clothing giant — all because she’s *gasp* a lesbian.
“[W]e have heard back from so many of our members,” director Monica Cole told One News Now. “We have heard back from men and women — not just moms — saying they will no longer shop there at JC Penney, as long as Ellen DeGeneres is their spokesperson.”
If that’s considered a win in their eyes, kudos, I guess.
For years now, the most entertaining part of the Oscars has been Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Academy Awards special.
This should be a change of pace for Winfrey, who is normally doing the interviewing.
Kimmel is the right man behind the desk to make the former talk show giant squirm just a little bit while she promotes her new weekly series on OWN, Oprah’s Next Chapter.
