Jimmy Kimmel took the stage at ABC’s annual upfront presentation to advertisers on Tuesday and lit into his network’s recent show cancellations, sitcom star Roseanne Barr, and, of course, President Donald Trump.
“We have a new slogan this year ABC.
Our new slogan is ‘Forward Together.’ Hillary Clinton had a yard sale, and she let us have that for almost nothing,” the late-night host began, in a routine meant to poke fun at the TV network business while advertisers field offers to place their products on the various platforms.
“So we’re saying goodbye to Shondaland and going headfirst into Roseanne-istan with no exit plan,” Kimmel said of Barr, who also entertained the audience at the annual sales presentation with a better-than-expected rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” in front of ABC’s American Idol judges.
Though he said in a recent interview that he intended to avoid roasting President Trump, Kimmel apparently couldn’t resist.
