Jimmy Kimmel Just Combined Olive Garden’s Pasta Pass w/ the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge


Earlier this week Olive Garden unveiled a Never Ending Pasta Pass. It only took a day for that news to unfold before Jimmy Kimmel Live host Jimmy Kimmel combined that $100 pasta pass with the now Internet ubiquitous ALS Ice Bucket challenge.

Here’s the comedy that inevitably ensued:


‘The One with the Free Coffee’ — Real ‘Friends’ Coffee Shop Coming to NYC


In case that Friends reunion on Jimmy Kimmel left you feeling a little ho-hum, you may soon get a chance to bum around at 11 am on a workday on the actual big orange couch from the show, thanks to the upcoming Central Perk pop-up in New York City.

In honor of the upcoming Friends 20th anniversary, Warner Bros. has partnered with Eight O’Clock Coffee to bring an actual pop-up replica of Central Perk to Manhattan. The shop will come complete with themed decor, bizarre folk musical performances a la Smelly Cat, and, as we mentioned, chances to take #SofaSelfies on the same plush orange couch the “Friends” sat on.


Speaking of, Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe have not been scheduled to make appearances, but there will be free “Central Perk Roast” coffee on hand and chances to win Friends merchandise, which is kind of or in other words nowhere near as nice.

Central Perk will run from September 17 through October 18, Monday – Friday from 8 am to 8 pm and weekends from 10 am to 8 pm.

Turns Out a Lot of Gluten-Free People Don’t Actually Know What Gluten Is [Watch]


In last year’s This is The End, Seth Rogen’s character Seth Rogen describes gluten as a blanket term for things that are bad for you, from calories to fat. While this isn’t entirely accurate (it’s actually a  composite wheat protein), the definition seems to work well enough for plenty of people as a solid reason to go gluten-free.

On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy decided to venture into gluten-free capital of the world Los Angeles to interview self-proclaimed GF-ers and ask if they, in fact, know what gluten is. The results are probably as you’d expect, but hey, nothing beats laughing at hipsters and people who don’t eat pizza by choice.

Also, just because:


Gordon Ramsay American — Idol Parody [VIDEO]

In a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay appeared to speak about his upcoming FOX show: Hotel Hell. In this new reality series, Ramsay goes into hotels and shakes things up. With what appears to be a similar premise to his Kitchen Nightmares show, Ramsay will re-teach the owners of the hotels he visits that at the end of the day: it’s about the customer’s satisfaction.

Along with Kitchen Nightmares, Hotel Hell will join Ramsay’s FOX line-up of reality shows which also include: Hell’s Kitchen and MasterChef. Seriously, this guy is practically the face of FOX these days.

While on the show, Ramsay also spoke about his recent injuries during a celebrity soccer event, his time teaching inmates to cook, and even briefly about his training for the latest Ironman Triatholon.

As a treat for viewers, Kimmel introduced a short clip parodying what would happen if Ramsay were ever to judge the another popular FOX series, which Ramsay surprisingly doesn’t have a hand in, American Idol.

Watch the hilarious short below!

The new Starbucks logo looks like Snooki from Jersey Shore? That’s the joke that Jimmy Kimmel made on his late night show. He refers to a “snooki-ato” in his bit. Oh Jimmy Kimmel, you slay me. [/sarcasm?]
