He continued: ‘Bob Iger should be retired by now, he should be off on a yacht somewhere. Instead he’s here pretending to be exciting about a new season of Will-Fucking-Trent. Bob tried to sell us last year, he put us up for sale, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, no one wanted to buy us.’

Kimmel proceeded to take a swipe at the Kardashians’ upcoming season. 

‘This new season shows you the Kardashians like you’ve never seen them before, assuming you’ve never seen them before. Otherwise, it’s exactly the same shit as the last 17 years,’ he mused.

His monologue was given in front of an audience of advertising executives. 

Some exciting announcements during the event included a Bruce Springsteen documentary coming to Hulu this October, news that Serena Williams would host the 2024 ESPYS and ABC’s fall primetime schedule.
