Jimmy Kimmel: Game Night specials to feature Eminem, Jack Black, more

Jimmy Kimmel will be taking his show into prime time during the basketball finals with his series of "Game Night" specials. The 30-minute broadcasts will feature celebrity guests Denzel Washington, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Michael Cera and Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, and a special comedy segment "featuring Jimmy Kimmel as Eminem's next prodigy."

Since Kimmel and his crew will be focusing on the prime time shows, he will be airing several repeats in the 12:05 AM time slot (you can check out the full schedule here). Three new shows will air during the week of June 1 instead of the usual four, and during the week of June 8, there will only be two new 12:05 shows and three reruns.

The "Game Night" specials will air on the following dates/times (those of us on the West Coast will see Jimmy after the games):
Thursday, June 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET/CT
Sunday, June 7 at 7:00 p.m. ET/CT
Tuesday, June 9 at 8:00 p.m. ET/CT
Thursday, June 11 at 8:00 p.m. ET/CT
Sunday, June 14 at 7:00 p.m. ET/CT (if necessary)
Tuesday, June 16 at 8:00 p.m. ET/CT (if necessary)
Tuesday, June 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET/CT (if necessary)

    Thanks for the schedule. These shows are annoying because it is really hard to DVR them properly. I usually DVR the show before and after since there is no way to know how long the game will go. I hope ABC actually puts the episodes on their online archive this time (last year they only put the regular 12:05a episodes online, but maybe since those will be re-runs generally they'll actually put the game night episodes online)

    If I'm not mistaken, ABC actually reran some of the Game Night shows later on in Jimmy's usual 12:05 slot. Since they're 30 min., two were put together to make one regular hour long show.
