During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel promised he plans to make his first time hosting the Emmys extra-memorable by pulling an elaborate practical joke that will involve TV viewers.
“I am gonna do something very weird during the show,” said Kimmel. “I think it could possibly be the biggest prank ever pulled, as far as number of people involved. Possibly. I haven’t researched it, but it’ll definitely be right up there. The audience will be a participant in this. So it’s important that you watch because you’re either going to be in on it or not.”
To participate in Kimmel’s Emmy stunt, tune in the Emmy Awards telecast, airing Sunday, September 23 on CTV and ABC.
