Kimmel Takes It Easy Make Fun of Iger and Disney Upfront Slate

After a two-year break, Jimmy Kimmel made a spectacular comeback to the Disney Upfront stage on Tuesday, May 14, 2024. He didn’t hold back in his hilarious speech, poking fun at Disney CEO Bob Iger, enduring television programs like “Blue Bloods,” artist P. Diddy (also known as Sean Combs or Diddy), and even the rapidly growing “Bachelor” franchise.

Kimmel was greeted by Kerri Washington with the amusing comment, “The last decent lead-in I ever had.” After that, he focused on Iger, who made his first appearance in the front since 1994. Kimmel played a pre-recorded clip featuring an ebullient (probably digitally manipulated) Iger lauding Disney’s “creative excellence.” Then, Kimmel deadpanned, saying, “That’s it, people. Bob Iger: after all these years, he’s still really enthusiastic. simply emitting energy, even if that energy has been somewhat pre-recorded.”

The presenter of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” didn’t end there. “They’re building one big ad-supported pile of s**t, and you get to watch it!” he joked, taking aim at Disney’s seemingly limitless output of entertainment. After that, he concentrated on particular programs, such as the enduring police drama “Blue Bloods.” He enquired, “Is ‘Blue Bloods’ still on?” “Donnie Wahlberg is a grandfather now, right? At this point, shouldn’t they be investigating offenses involving adult-onset diabetes?

Kimmel’s list of people to roast next was P. Diddy. Kimmel made reference to a recent raid at Diddy’s mansion when she quipped, “There are more FBI agents on CBS than were at Diddy’s house.” Hurt! But Kimmel’s mocking of the seemingly unstoppable “Bachelor” franchise was arguably the most outrageous—and certainly the most attention-grabbing—part of his show. He unveiled a spoof teaser for a new program dubbed “The Golden Bachelorette.” “Older adults find love… or at least companionship with someone who remembers dial-up,” according to the trailer, which featured dramatic music and voiceover.

“You know The Bachelor and The Bachelorette,” Kimmel jokingly said. As a result of the show’s current success, we are thrilled to present yet another thrilling chapter in the Golden Age of… oh wait, never mind. We will continue to take full advantage of The Bachelor.”

Although Kimmel’s humor may seem crude to some, his numbers seem to indicate differently. His Disney Upfront roasts have become a tradition, and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” is still a late-night mainstay. The release this year did not let fans down, providing a humorous glimpse into the rapidly evolving television industry, especially within the Disney company. Whether his particular jokes are received well or not, Kimmel certainly gets the audience talking. You can’t ignore him, whether you love him or not.

It’s critical to remember that Kimmel spoke in a humorous manner, and that’s how it should be taken. Even though “Blue Bloods” is getting close to its fourteenth season, it is still a popular show. P. Diddy is a prosperous singer and businessman; no charges were brought against him as a result of the raid on his residence. Despite occasional mockery, the “Bachelor” franchise manages to maintain a dedicated following.

Even so, Kimmel’s razor-sharp sense of humor allowed him to parody some of the biggest personalities and entertainment trends, showing us that even the most prominent people in Hollywood can take a little friendly jab.
