‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ to broadcast from Brooklyn this October

Kimmel's returning to Brooklyn.

From Craig Ferguson to Jimmy Fallon, the traveling late-night host has become a tradition of the past year. (As a matter of face, Ferguson is getting set to host a series of shows from his native Scotland Monday night on CBS.)

With all of this in mind, Jimmy Kimmel is also heading back to some familiar waters — Brooklyn. Beginning the week of October 29, Kimmel will be bringing his “Live!” show back to his home city for several shows in conjunction with the Brooklyn Nets playing their first-ever games in the city.

This announcement follows up what will be an eventful year for Kimmel. He has already scored some rave reviews courtesy of the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, and he is also going to be hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards for ABC later this month.

Do you think putting talk-show hosts in new locations works for an entertaining show, or is it just a gimmick for ratings?
