Jimmy Kimmel will appear on Rob Ford’s YouTube show
Considering the humiliation he suffered during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this month, it would be totally sensible for Rob Ford to want nothing more to do with the show’s host. But the mayor isn’t a sensible man—and so he’s apparently accepting Jimmy Kimmel’s offer to make an appearance on Ford Nation, the Ford brothers’ weekly YouTube show. This time, Rob and Doug will be asking the questions.
Kimmel is based in L.A., and, according to the Sun, he won’t be making the trip to Toronto. The mayor and his brother will interview their new favourite talk-show host via Skype, and then presumably edit the resulting footage into two- or three-minute clips, like they’ve done for previous Ford Nation installments. (For posterity’s sake, we can only hope Kimmel airs some of the outtakes on his own show.)
In a sense, the decision to re-engage isn’t all that surprising. Since his late-night debut, Ford has maintained that he “held his own” against Kimmel, despite harsh assessments of the interview in the media. If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how the mayor, who sometimes struggles with written speeches, will attempt to turn the tables on a professional talker.

This will end very well for everyone not named Rob Ford.
well, Rob will be editing this to make himself look as good as possible. Presumably (as mentioned in the article), Jimmy will be doing the same. Jimmy’s will be more entertaining.
Rob Ford did a great job on Kimmel. He also did a great job on the Today show with Matt Lauer. When he told Matt that Canada ruled hockey and you could see the shame in Matt’s face that the US team collapsed for the bronze against Finland – Ford has guts and is still respectful in the Canadian way. I’ll be watching.
Another brilliant move by the Fords campign. From the braintrust seeking to retain the office of Mayor on October 27th. What human over the age of 6 can trust this pair with making any decisions affecting the largest city in Canada? The Ford’s expensive trip to Hollywood has further impaired their grip on mature and responsible governance. Thank you Jimmy Kimmel for continuing to expose the clueless siblings for the dancing bears they are!
Magicians, comedians, professional wrestlers.
Rob Ford has to share the stage to get attention from the public.
The day after election day Rob Ford will forever fade away into the history books.
