11:35 pm
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, ted danson, from the miami marlins, giancarlo stanton, and music from chris young. and now, like always, here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ >> jimmy: welcome! thank you for watching. thanks for coming. thank you for breaking the heat to be here. it was 102 in
11:36 pm
not 100, 102. it is almost halloween. it used to be cold here on halloween. we don't wear skimpy halloween costumes to be sexy, we wear them to survive. if the temperature holds up, game one tonight between the dodgers and astros will be the hottest world series game ever. the first two games are in los angeles. and then it moves to cooler climate, the gobi desert. this is the dodgers' first world series in almost 30 years. since 1988. it is a tough ticket to come by. the average ticket price for game one was about $1,300. to put that in perspective, right now a ticket to the world series is worth more than the weinstein company. [ applause ] so yesterday, guillermo was sick yesterday. i sent my father, who is a lifelong dodgers
11:37 pm
place to talk to the players at world series media day and that turned out to be a home run. you may be out of a job, guillermo. my father did quite a number on the dodgers. how are you feeling? >> i feel better. >> jimmy: so l.a. is hosting the world series. 11 years from now we're hosting the olympics. today in greece, the olympic torch was lit for the 2018 winter games which will be held in pyongyang, south korea. not south carolina. pyongyang, as far as i know, is not south carolina. if there is, write to the network. the games are still more than three months away. they're already lighting the torch. the olympic torch is like the oven in my first apartment. you have to pre heat it for a long time to get it to temperature. in case you missed it, it is an ancient ritual. this is video of how it went today. this is the temple where the ceremony took place. it starts
11:38 pm
wonder woman. the priestesses march in. each one wearing something from the 1972 jcpenney catalogue. and this is a bowl of flame that they present to, well, no, that goes to you. bowl of flame, madam. so they take a walk together and greet the toga boy to walk around the tree that zeus once urinated on. and then presents the priestess with a marshmallow roefgt stick which pleases her so she agrees to marry toga boy. and they pass these men, they were a gift to the olympic committee from sir elton john. so that's very special. then the guy from the cialis commercial beats on a drum a couple times and finally enter linda the torch lady, you would think they would have propane or lighter fluidr
11:39 pm
lit. and the gathering of villains in nonmatching chairs, was pleased. and then skinny pete from breaking bad rushes off with the torch and the olympic magic begins. they really do it up over there. i would like to see that in person. isn't that something? [ applause ] so in other weird sports news, there is a major scandal rourking the world of the iditarod. it turns out some of the dogs in the race are on drugs. dogs belonging to the four-time musher tested positive for a banned substance. officials became suspicious when one of the dogs stood on its hind legs and lifted the sled over its head in celebration. these powerful drugs. opioids. these the same drugs santa
11:40 pm
dallas said he believed the drugs were given to his dogs maliciously without his knowledge to tarnish his reputation and it has tarnished the reputation. all over the nation, children are tearing the posters off their walls. it is a branding disaster. he says that though he has done nothing wrong, he fully expects to be banned from future competitions. and he will not take it. >> i will not spend the rest of my life looking in the mirror knowing that i backed down when i did nothing wrong. the iditarod can try to run me over. they can try to throw me under the bus. but i am going to be honest with myself and they're going to find out, i don't fit under the bus. >> jimmy: i don't know. i think you would. i'll have to find out. here's a doping dogs is -- if you're that concerned about going fast that you would intentionally feed your dogs performance enhancing drugs, just buy a car. get a nice fast car. speaki
11:41 pm
trump is at war right now with a couple of republican senators. senator bob corker, this morning on cnn, senator corker questioned trump's competence, his mental stability. he said trump is debasing the nation and he popped the top off this doozy, too. >> is the president of the united states a liar? >> the president has great difficulty with the truth. >> might as well take that as a yes. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: of course, the president handled this very well. he brushed the insults off. he didn't? no, he didn't. in fact he fired off not one but five angry tweets about bob corker over the course of two furious hours. i would imagine melania and baron were hide flag
11:42 pm
catcher in tennessee is now fighting tax cuts. corker dropped out of the race in tennessee when i refused to endorse him and now is negative on anything trump. isn't it sad that light weight senator corker who couldn't get flected tennessee will fight tax cuts plus? he is the incompetent head of the foreign relations committee. and look how poorly the u.s. has done. he doesn't have a clue as the entire world was laughing and taking advantage of us. people like little bob corker have set the u.s. way back. now we move forward. the entire world was laughing at us? did they stop? you know donald trump is mad when he calls someone little with two ds in the middle. and then after the tweet storm, trump had to have lunch with senate republicans which included bob corker, at which we don't know a lot of the details because it is a private meeting but we know the president, this is
11:43 pm
lunch today. a bowl of rice and two slices of cherry pie. he doesn't just act like a child. he eats like a child. so after lunch -- after lunch another republican who has had enough, senator jeff flake of arizona, announced that he will not run for re-election because he refuses to compromise his values by supporting this president. so we are really making america great again. things are going very well. by the way, donald trump's merchandise team is trying to make halloween great again. for real. they have a new hat. this is a hat which as you can see features a photo realistic presentation of the president's face. that's on the front. and i says make america great again. the hat goes for $45. it is already sold out. like the trump administration, it is only available for a limited time. the main difference between this hat and a real jack-o-lantern, a
11:44 pm
something bright on the inside. so as i mentioned earlier -- thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: it is very hot today. there are people walking around our neighborhood without shirts on today which is gross. but we thought it would be a good area for tonight's pedestrian queflt on the street, we asked people passing by our studio, are you wearing a shirt? okay. so the way this works is, we will see an individual introduce himself in close-up. and then based on that introduction we'll try to guess who is wearing a shirt. let's begin. >> john, nashville, tennessee. >> are you wearing a shirt? >> is john from nashville wearing a shirt? >> yes. >> jimmy: let's look. >> yes. >> jimmy: of course he is. look at him. that was in the hotel room. here we go. next is this. >> saun mccarthy from maui
11:45 pm
>> jimmy: what about him? is he wearing a shirt? everyone says no. >> today i am, yes. >> caught out a bad day, huh? >> jimmy: that one threw us for a loop. >> tyler archer from colorado springs, colorado. are you wearing a shirt? >> jimmy: is tyler wearing a shirt? everyone says no. >> i am not wearing a shirt. >> jimmy: but if he was, it would be an ed hardy shirt. we have more. >> my name is ken from london. >> are you wearing a shirt? what about him? >> jimmy: i think the no's are wishful thinking, ladies. >> i am wearing a shirt. a vest shirt. >> jimmy: whichever way you guessed, you got half credit for that. next up. >> from canada. >> are you wearing a shirt? >> jimmy: is cap
11:46 pm
wearing a shirt? all right. >> i am not wearing a shirt. >> jimmy: no. but i am wearing a very cool backpack. to people visiting from canada this week, it is like 200 degrees. all right. who is our next person? >> i'm from washington. >> are you wearing a shirt? >> jimmy: is fred wearing a shirt? we're evenly split on fred. >> well, yes, i am. >> jimmy: he really had to think about it for a second. all right. next? >> i'm from rome, italy. >> are you wearing a shirt? >> jimmy: everyone says no. >> yeah, i'm shirtless. >> your nipple. >> do you like it? >> jimmy: i don't like it though. all right. when in rome. we have one
11:47 pm
>> are you wearing a shirt? >> jimmy: is dj? let's find out if he's wearing a shirt. >> i'm not wearing a shirt. >> what about shoes? >> i'm not wearing shoes, either. >> jimmy: he spent his shoes and shirt money on that hover board. thanks, everyone for playing are you wearing a shirt. >> when we come back, my dad meets the dodgers at world series media day, so stick around. ahhhh!!! they can fly... ...travel at the speed of light... ...and command the currents. they don't need another way to get around.
