Just hours after ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” delivered the show’s most watched post-Oscars special since its debut seven years ago, Kimmel’s YouTube channel surpassed a half-billion views. “JKL” launched the show’s YouTube channel only three years ago in 2009 and is now the world’s first late-night television show (and only the third U.S. show in any time period) to break the half-billion mark.

Recently, “JKL” broke into the top 100 most viewed YouTube channels in history. “JKL’s” YouTube success stems from the show’s viral hits that include “Jimmy Kimmel’s YouTube Challenges,” “I’m F@*#ing Ben Affleck,” “Handsome Men’s Club,” “Hottie Body Hump Club” and many more.

YouTube clips from the show can be enjoyed on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” mobile app available on iTunes and the Android marketplace.
