Jimmy Kimmel Show: "Nobody watches hockey"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhlma8z23oM

I was watching, I guess a re-run the other day, and I saw this.. fast forward to around the 4:10 mark to get to part.

Precisely. Unfortunately NBC's decisions regarding late night shows are just as atrocious as their decisions regarding their hockey announcers and production managers, and now we're left Conanless- perhaps the only late night show that was even worth watching.

To be fair it wasn't actually Jimmy Kimmel who said it, it was the guy in the crowd.

Ha! Tiger Woods said the same thing a couple years ago. We don't need to fret over this, the hockey gods will take care of Jimmy too.

Relatively speaking, in the U.S., that comment is correct.

And it should not offend anyone's sensibilities, IMO.

Jimmy Kimmel actually said "I know that from watching hockey" and the *********, stupid American, said "Nobody watches hockey." So Kimmel actually does watch hockey.

Kimmel has made several hockey references on his show, thats what is so stupid about this thread, it wasn't even Kimmel who said it just a college student.

Are some hockey fans this insecure?

Pretty misleading title. Some random guy from the audience said no one watches hockey, not Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel actually seemed like he was a fan of the sport.

Who cares? Joe the Plumber is a moron and I have no interest in what he has to say on any subject. And of course Joe the Plumber is 'your average guy'.

It's okay, Michael Moore deducted him a point for that comment.

If anything, the BYU Cougars are the only ones that have the right to be offended by this if they so choose.

Yes, BYU has a hockey team.... I had to check... http://byuhockey.org/
