tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC January 20, 2012 12:00am-1:05am PST
of us. i'm nick watt, for "nightline," in london. >> nick watt, on the babies of stars. thanks for watching abc news. we hope you check in for "good morning america." they're working while you're sleeping. we're always onloin at abcnews.com. jimmy kimmel's up next. see you here tomorrow. up next, on an all-new "jimmy kimmel live" -- >> texas governor, rick perry, dropped out of the race this morning. he left the same way he entered it. confused and possibly a little bit drunk. >> tom arnold. >> now, i get a tweet that i didn't wash my hands. i go back -- i usually do. i usually do. >> keke palmer. >> the lady bugs are red. >> they'reababababababababababab
>> jimmy: hola. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thanks for watching at home. thanks for assembling peaceably here in our studio. it was another beautiful day here in hollywood. sunny, just above 60 degrees. it was warm enough to wear a t-shirt. but just cool enough for the homeless not to smell. [ laughter ] well, some people complained about the weather here. [ laughter ] don't mention any names. meanwhile, it's freezing in seattle right now. 200,000 homes are without power because of a rare ice storm. their first one in 15 years. the governor of washington has declared a state of emergency, which would allow him to bring in the national guard that would allow him to hug people to keep them warm. what do you do when it's cold? i used to live in seattle. it's very hilly. when it snows, it's hard to get around. but it can also be fun when you have a sled. this happened yesterday before the weather got really bad.
the local nbc news channel were warning people that sledding can be dangerous. and this reporter got an earful from a very angry sledder. >> we know it's not going to get any better. it probably will get worse, as long as this corridor is open. you saw a car go behind me. buses are coming through here, too. a number of close cars. >> we stopped because of your reporting. thank you so much for ruining the fun. total, complete kill-joy. >> okay. >> for a decade and you've ruined it. >> okay. >> jimmy: well, rarely do you see a reporter say wah, wah, wah. i hope you survived the great wikipedia blackout yesterday. yesterday, wikipedia and a number of other websites shut themselves down, to protest the stop online piracy act, that's being considered in congress. the protest seems to have worked. a bunch of congressmen withdrew their support of the act. but our sources of information
were limited, which made it hard for us to put the show together. i wasn't joking. [ laughter ] fortunately, though, our receptionist, angela, knows all sorts of things. so, in lieu of wikipedia, we set a camera up at angela's desk. she works at a reception desk. and had random staff members asking random questions all day long. angela, you didn't know what was going on, did you? >> no. >> jimmy: for someone who was completely in the dark, i think you did a pretty good job. >> angela? >> what's up? >> my computer is kind of busted. my internet's down. it's kind of bad. you know how many seasons we've been doing the show? >> ten. >> ten. cool. okay. >> and what's johnny depp's maiden name? >> what?
>> hi. i've been thinking about cats a lot lately. >> what? >> where do they go? >> what are you talking about? >> where do cats go? >> what do you mean, where do cats go? >> angela, where does electric come from? >> what? >> what is the national currency of bolivia? >> i have no idea. >> some cats, they are cool. i throw my cat, chloe against the wall sometimes. she's, like, fine. >> what kind of cars do you like? >> i have no idea. i don't know a lot of lesbians. >> where is brussels? >> what? >> where is brussels? >> what are you -- >> someone was talking about brussels. you know where it is? is it a place? >> like brussels sprouts? >> is that what they were talking about? >> what kind of questions are these? what is wrong with these people. i'm going to be in the middle of nowhere. i would never want to live -- it's in belgium.
belgium. >> why do bees die when they lose their stinger? when they stinger? >> yeah, i know. >> why? >> because they have nothing else to give. >> thank you. >> i don't know. >> brussels? >> brussels? >> i don't know, brussels. >> that's what i said. it's in belgium. >> so, i have to go to this party this weekend. and i have to -- >> teach me how to. >> teach me how to do it. >> it's like you're washing your hair. >> teach me how to dougie. everybody wants it. >> do you know if it's t-1 or regular phone lines? >> what? >> just regular. what are you doing? are you kidding me? >> no. they're t-1. >> oh, my god.
what is wrong with everyone today? people are really psychotic. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: what did you think was going on? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: did you know why they were asking you all the questions? >> i thought everyone lost their minds. people are weird here at jimmy kimmel. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: angela, our receptionist, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] we need to get her a reality show. tonight on mtv, got gifted us with a new episode of "jersey shore." and tonight's show, the housemates celebrated the simultaneous birthdays of the situation and pauly d. i guess they have the same birthday. i have no idea how old these guys are. they could be anywhere between 19 and 58, for all i know. but the situation was upset because the gang was paying more attention to pauly d.'s birthday than his because they like pauly
d. more than him. and i felt a little badly for him. >> wishing something you have you don't. pauly has family. i feel like i have nobody. i'm like a house with no legs right now. not sturdy. >> jimmy: can you imagine anything sadder than a house with no legs? [ laughter ] they can't even walk. 99% of what's said on the show "jersey shore" is stupid. but sometimes, you have to pan to find the gold. you can find some intelligent signs of life on this program. you just have to look for them and have an editor spend eight or nine hours editing to find them. >> you don't need to be a rocket scientists, to understand that a perfect way to deal with problems in anxiety, is being nonchalant and having a perfect meatball diet. let's get waisty-pants. >> jimmy: how can you get wastey pants if you don't wear pants? last night on "american idol,"
the show lost 18% of its total viewers and 26% of its younger viewers. of those who did tune in, more than half was just checking to see if steven tyler is still alive. and he is. it was "american idol's" lowest rated season premiere since the start of the show in 2002. i knew this show wouldn't work. it's a total rip-off of "the x factor." tonight, they were in pittsburgh with auditions. there were some good singers. but some of the singers -- this one -- some of the singers are hard to figure out. like this girl. listen to her sing. ♪ 'cause this is my destiny it depends on me alone ♪ ♪ alone alone ♪ >> awesome. >> jimmy: yeah. not a great performance. but you get the sense, she goes in and out. maybe she can sing. especially if she got some help,
like most professional singers do. we took jessica's performance from last night. and we ran it through autotune. and if you do this, it works a lot better. ♪ 'cause this is my destiny it depends on me alone ♪ ♪ alone alone ♪ ♪ in this home >> can we make this, like, really simple? >> yes. >> one, two, three. >> jimmy: much better, right? for me, the best part of "american idol" is steven tyler. i've enjoyed steven tyler's work for years. but until he got on the show, i had no idea how ridiculous he is. his outfits, over the last few nights it looks like someone gave captain jack sparrow a gift certificate to chico's. [ cheers and applause ]
his libido is insane. these women walk in. and if looks could impregnate, there would be 12 more teen mom shows on mtv. and tonight's show was no exception. it's time for "steven tyler's creepy leer of the night." >> wow. >> how are you? >> good. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: cannot get over it, each time. meanwhile, in politics, in south carolina, yet another debate between the republican candidates for president. one more and they'll have enough episodes to go into syndication. the big question throughout the primary has been which of the candidates has the best chance of beating president obama? fox news directed this question to donald trump last night. and he had a very interesting response, i thought. >> do you think that speaker gingrich, governor romney, congressman ron paul, governor
perry and senator santorum, that each one of those, in a general election, if it were held today, could beat president obama or not? you think some of them could? >> i don't think that they all could. no. ron paul could not beat him. >> okay. how about speaker gingrich and governor romney? >> well, i think they could. yes. >> jimmy: all right. i think he just gave his opinion. i don't know. newt gingrich had a rough night tonight. one of his two ex-wives, marianne gingrich, sat down for an interview on "nightline" tonight. she thinks newt lacks the moral integrity to be president. gingrich, if you don't know, was caught cheating on marianne, with the woman who is now his third wife, while he was leading impeachment proceedings against bill clinton for the monica lewinsky stuff. in other words, he puts the hippo in hypocrite. here's the former mrs. gingrich on "nightline." >> she was asking to have an open marriage. and i refused. >> he wanted to have an open
marriage? >> yes. that i accept that he had somebody else in his life. >> newt, you dirty dog. >> jimmy: yes. he is getting some support. herman cain, by the way, who i miss, gave a great speech in south carolina today. ever since he dropped out of the race, people have been wondering who herman cain would endorse for president. and today, he finally revealed his selection. the candidate herman cain is endorsing is we, the people. he said, we, the people. i didn't even know we were running. [ laughter ] he endorsed the american people for president, which i see several things wrong with this. first and foremost, how are we all going to live in the white house? i think there's only one bathroom right there. and cain is adamant that this isn't a stunt. and i agree. stunts are interesting. but his speech today, say what you want about herman cain. the man knows how to get a crowd going. >> the message is real simple.
this revolution is going to have to be driven from the bottoms-up. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's the actual audience. plenty of tickets still available. [ applause ] i haven't seen a crowd like that since sanjaya at the north hills mall. [ laughter ] texas governor, rick perry, dropped out of the race this morning. he left the same way he entered it. confused and possibly a little bit drunk. [ laughter ] in his concession speech today, perry endorsed newt gingrich. he said he decided to endorse newt gingrich that the first choice, g.i. joe, was not a real person. i'm not sure how far an endorsement from rick perry goes nowadays. you'd be better off with an endorsement from katy perry. i am going to miss rick perry, especially during the debates, when anyone asked him a
question, he looked like he was trying to figure out the plot to "inception." rick perry was a fun candidate. he brought many a smile to my face. so, tonight, we bid him a fond farewell. >> if somebody's looking for the slickest politician or the smoothest debater, i readily admit i'm not that person. it's three agencies of government when i get there that are gone. commerce, education, and the -- what's the third one there? let's see. fed up to 95613. and you can follow me on tweeter. >> all of us agree in a the word that was on that rock is a very offensive rock. ♪ you had a bad day >> actually, the reason that we fought the revolution in the 16th century. the third agency of government i would do away with. education, the -- ♪ you had a bad day
>> that's the constitution. read it. those of you that will be 21 by november 12th, i asked for your support and your vote. let's see. i can't. >> you have to get deep in those eyes. >> i can't. sorry. oops. >> i'm going to say no this time. i'm sorry. >> i'm going to say no. >> bad. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i hope to see him again somewhere down the line. we have a fun show tonight. keke palmer is here. we have music from filter. and we'll be right back with tom arnold. so, stick around. [ cheers and applause ] right now we have a deal going on, and you can have it for free.

[ cheers and applause ] and then, with music from this album, "the trouble with angels," filter, from the bud light stage. that's a good band. we have a new show for you tomorrow night. tomorrow night on the show -- we don't normally do a show on friday. but tomorrow, we're doing one. with terrence howard, the young star of "extremely loud and incredibly close," thomas horn will join us. and music from safetysuit. so, join us tomorrow night. our first guest is an exceedingly likable and excitable golden globe and peabody award winner, who, this weekend, goes for his second peabody with his new show, "my big redneck vacation." the show premieres saturday at 9:30 on cmt. please welcome, tom arnold. [ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ]
normally, they get out here faster than you. >> i have lots to do. >> jimmy: well, i want to get to the bottom of something, if i could. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i hope i'm not embarrassing you. but this morning at 11:15 you tweeted the following. doing jimmy kimmel show to talk "my big redneck vacation," politics, sports and my vaginal rejuvenation. and then, the tweet changed to, doing jimmy kimmel show tonight to talk "my big redneck vacation," sports, politics and more. >> i want to say, i have a great wife. she's the best. she has my back. anything that could be about me, she's on it. i do something stupid in her mind, she fixes it, apparently, without my knowing. i'm talking to your producer. and in the middle of it, she
hands me this. >> jimmy: oh. look at that. do not -- >> she thought -- it was a joke at the end of it. i don't know anything about vaginal rejuvenation to talk about it. she thought i was that crazy and would do that. >> jimmy: there's not some surgery going on that you were going to reveal the details of? >> not at all. she said, if i talk about it, people would probably think she is doing it. now that i realize it, i am talking about it, she's not doing it. i don't know what it is. but she's -- >> jimmy: you know what i'm going to do, if i don't mind? >> i don't mind at all. >> jimmy: i'm going to make a t-shirt out of this and you can wear it around. >> thank you. she edited my twitter without telling me. >> jimmy: she did, huh? how did -- she has your pass word? >> yeah. she has everything. yeah. i'm not taking any chances. she has everything. >> jimmy: she can read your e-mails? >> absolutely. >> jimmy: all right. that's good for me to know.
>> that's good for you to know. absolutely. >> jimmy: wow. so, you're very open. >> open, yeah. scared to death of her. i'll be scared about this. >> jimmy: you tweet an awful lot. >> i do sometimes, yeah. we were on the plane last night. and i spent a half hour. i'll answer any questions. i do an awful lot. is it bad? >> jimmy: i don't think it's bad. i think it suits you. people, i would imagine, and i know you. you have bursts of energy. >> right. >> jimmy: and in those bursts of energy, it's probably better that you're tweeting than doing something terrible. >> that's true. that's very good. but also, i read tweets. our friend dax shepard. he had to get off google alert. i used to be on that. but i have low self-esteem and i used to read that. being sober from google alerts for almost a year. but twitter has a notification. if someone mentions your name, your name in general, it will notify me. i'll find out. last week i was shooting a pilot
down at fox sports. my name comes up. and this woman says, i can see tom arnold shooting a pilot. rad. pound, sarcasm. so, i was like, what? i go into the office building. i'm trying to figure out which woman it is. i figure out where she must have been sitting. and i go right up to her. excuse me. did you tweet about me? and she's like, absolutely not. i go, look at this. i have an ipad. and she said, i thought those were private. well, they're not. and it's like a couple weeks ago -- >> jimmy: wow. i love that. >> i went to the bathroom. i come out of the bathroom. i get a tweet that i didn't wash my hands. i go back -- i usually do. i usually do. [ laughter ] so, i go back in there. and i wash my hands. and there's ten guys in there. and i go, listen, buddy. whoever you are, i am washing my hands. i want you to retweet that. >> jimmy: did he do it? >> yeah. >> jimmy: i don't know what show
you're shooting a pilot for at fox sports, but that's the show. you going around, confronting tweeters. >> isn't that great? >> jimmy: i love that. people get nasty on twitter. >> they do. >> jimmy: for no apparent reason. >> they do. >> jimmy: and there's a p presumption that you're there to entertain them at all times. >> like you're a tool. i love it. those are the ones -- people will be, i love you. you're great. and i see, you're a tool. all right. i'm reading this one. >> jimmy: i'll find you. >> yeah. >> jimmy: you also tweeted that you've been studying transdental meditation. >> t.m. dax took that and he told me. this is the selling point. you know, we go to a lot of charity events. and at some point, they give a speech. a speech to raise money. you do t.m., your brain goes completely to a different place. you're having a 20-minute vacation with a smile on your face when they're talking about sick kids. and you don't even know it. you can do t.m. at a wedding, a
funeral or whatever. and it's just a great thing. so, ashley and i went down there. we went to the orientation, you know? >> jimmy: okay. >> it's a bunch of hippies, which is fine. but they make you take your shoes off. so, it's got the aroma -- i know they burn sage or whatever it is. it's a combination. and i happened to bring my bag. i always bring my bag with my gear in it. >> jimmy: what's in the bag? >> a towel, a change of clothes. i bring it everywhere. i brought it here. you never know what's going to happen in these places. so, halfway through, everybody's all in the t.m. place. but i'm cascading sweat like this, crazy. and everybody's like -- i'm so nervous. i have my towel. i towelled off. that's why you carry a towel. >> jimmy: you sweat? >> yeah. >> jimmy: like a fighter. >> yeah. >> jimmy: but you're not fighting. >> i'm fighting on the inside. >> jimmy: so, do you find it's helping center you? >> i'm just getting there. i don't have my mantra yet. >> jimmy: oh, you have to get one of those. >> yeah. the first mantra.

i have no driver's license. he said, i'll drive you to the club. it's only one weekend for $15. i thought it was a lifetime contract. i wanted to leave college. i was a month from graduating. now, i'm up there. >> jimmy: you dropped out? >> i dropped out. it's sad. university of iowa. but that was my dream. and i had to become a bartender. >> jimmy: well, it seems to have worked out pretty well. >> it worked out well. >> jimmy: we'll take a quick break. and we'll talk about your new redneck show. it's called "my big redneck vacation." it premieres this saturday. tom arnold. we'll be right back.

it is keke your legal name? is that on your birth certificate? >> keke is my nickname. when i was little, my sister had a friend named keke. my mom said, i don't think that's a good idea. she may grow up and want a more professional-sounding name. so, she named me lauren campbell palmer. but everybody has called me keke. >> jimmy: and what happened to the imaginary friend? >> my sister, she played with the dog. and those with her imaginary friends. she played with them until the age of 13. >> jimmy: she did? >> she did. >> jimmy: she must love you telling people that. that's too old to be playing with your imaginary friend and dolls, isn't it? >> that's what we thought. >> jimmy: does all your family have nicknames? >> my older sister, we call her lo lori. if you go deep into my extended family, the nicknames go on for
days. >> jimmy: like what? >> lady bug. she was born red. we call her lady bug. >> jimmy: born red? >> yes. she was born red. and she's black.
