I can't tell you how excited I was to hear the line-up of guests for 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' later in the night of the season finale for 'Lost':
Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Wednesday, May. 24: Actor/director Jon Favreau, Bass Champion Mike Iaconelli, Hugh McIntyre from the HANSO Foundation. Bus Stop Giveaway: New York City
What a great crossover idea for both shows! It would rank right up there with the appearances of 'The Tonight Show' on 'Here's Lucy' and 'Cheers' and 'Seinfeld'.
And they played it straight - Hugh McIntyre "truthfully" answered all of Jimmy's questions regarding the Hanso Foundation and there was no hint that it was supposed to be any kind of a spoof.
Buit they kept talking about 'Lost' as a TV show which was mocking the foundation; with its own fictional variant on the "work" being done by the scientists who were funded by Alvar Hanso.
So this put 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' into yet another TV dimension, separate from the main Toobworld; one where 'Lost' is just a TV show just like it is for us here in the Real World.
I suppose this new version of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' could be set in the same theory-busting dimension where 'Hi Honey I'm Home!' takes place. In that short-lived sitcom from Nick @ Nite, characters from actual old TV show classics (Grandpa Munster, Alice Kramden, Gomer Pyle, etc.) crossed over from the TV Universe into the "Real World".
But it couldn't be the Real World since we were watching the show ourselves.
Unless..... maybe we aren't living in the Real World either......
Warning: 'Hi Honey I'm Home' may cause headaches, migraines, agita, and physical violence. If you are a televisiologist who is pregnant, or a televisiologist who is even thinking about becoming pregnant, you should not watch 'Hi Honey I'm Home' as it may cause complications.
And the worst part of it all is that you don't even get the benefit of a four hour erection from watching it.......
