According to ABC, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” is the only late night talk show to increase its viewership this year.  “As strong as the ratings are nationwide, the strongest ratings for Jimmy Kimmel are right here in Atlanta,” Tim McVay, WSB vice president and general manager told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution explaining Kimmel’s visit to his station.

The Journal-Constitution said the late night talk show host invited guests to pose for pictures with him saying, “Like Santa Claus, you can jump on my lap. If you’re naughty enough, you can get what you want.”
