Jimmy Kimmel’s webcam show is no hi-def affair

NEW YORK — ABC late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel has gotten down to basics with a show he recorded on his laptop computer.

Kimmel’s webcam experiment in network TV on Tuesday night was prompted by a power outage that knocked out the equipment in his Hollywood studio shortly before “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” was due to start taping.

He recorded the show Monday. The picture was fuzzy. The sound was tinny.

He explained to viewers and his studio audience at the top of the show he was having a technical problem.

Signing off, he made a deadpan promise nothing as terrible as this would ever happen on his show again.

Guests included film star Seth Rogen, comedian John Henson and country artist Dierks (durks) Bentley.
