Kimmel: Losing 30% Of Republican Viewers Not Ideal, But "Riddance" If You Don't Want To Watch


In an interview with CBS This Morning, Jimmy Kimmel talked about a potential of losing some of his audience. Kimmel said he saw a study or a poll where three years ago he was equally liked by both Republicans and Democrats and now Republican numbers went down "like 30 percent."

"As a talk show host, that is not ideal. But I would do it again in a heartbeat," he said about his anti-Republican commentaries.

"So you don't mind if Republicans turn off your show, they're not watching anymore?" journalist Tracy Smith asked.

"I don't say I don't mind. I'd love for everyone -- I want everyone with a television to watch the show, but if they're so turned off by my opinion on health care and gun violence then, I don't know, I probably won't want to have a conversation with them anyway," Kimmel said.

"Good riddance?" Smith asked

"Well, not good riddance, but riddance," Kimmel responded.
