From its premiere until February 4, 2011, the show aired at 12:05 am Eastern Time. The show then aired at Midnight Eastern Time starting February 7, 2011. On August 21, 2012, ABC announced that Jimmy Kimmel Live! would be moving 25 minutes earlier to 11:35 pm ET beginning on January 8, 2013 to compete with other late night talk shows while bumping Nightline to 12:35 am ET.
Contrary to its name, Jimmy Kimmel Live! no longer airs live; instead, it is taped at 4:30 pm Pacific Time on the day of broadcast. On rare occasions, though, it airs a special live edition, usually after major events like the Academy Awards ceremonies and 4-7 special half-hour episodes under the title Jimmy Kimmel Game Night airing in primetime that lead into ABC's coverage of the NBA Finals in June each year.
