Kimmel to Little People -- I Got Your Back

12/3/2007 1:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy KimmelJimmy Kimmel loves the little people -- who work on this show, that is. TMZ has learned that Kimmel, host of his own late night show on ABC, has been quietly paying people on his staff since the start of the WGA strike. No fanfare necessary.

Sources tell TMZ that Kimmel has been taking care of those who have been hit the hardest by the strike -- the low-paid entry level production assistants, receptionists, etc., who would be screwed by the loss during Christmas. As for senior staffers, we're told they were being "taken care of" by the network. ABC and reps for Kimmel did not respond to our request for comment.

Maybe Leno should take notes.

Well! You're a good guy, Jimmy! Nice to see this once in a while! Time to do a double-take on Jimmy Kimmel, if you don't like him...

Now that's class. No fanfare, no announcement, no look what a good boss I am. Now if he'd just get rid of his female-version-of-Andrew-Dice-Clay-girlfriend he'd have my total respect!

I agree with Lee Lee about Jimmy's choice of girlfriends. But I remember Jimmy's first show in February about 4 ? years ago (or more) and he seems to really be a nice guy who cares about people.

how much would a womans company be worth if you partook some five hours a day for 4 days a week for 8 months. 16 days a month times five hours a day times 8. thats 640 hours...hmmm. without having sex?

This is actually one of several good stories about him that have flown under the radar over the years. I'd love to meet this guy.

Oh, please. This was posted by TMZ because they are in bed with the Disney corporation, which owns ABC and Kimmel's show. Without corporate shilling, Jimmy Kimmel would not be noteworthy in any way. He defines mediocrity.

Jimmy Kimmel is a funny delightful guy, and has one of the best and funniest shows on
TV. He also has a deep sense of decency. Jiimy Kimmel is a hard guy guy not to like, or
love.
