Jimmy Kimmel Rolls Out Emmy Red Carpet

The countdown to Emmy Sunday is on, and this morning show host Jimmy Kimmel ceremoniously rolled out the red carpet for TV's biggest night and told ET to "expect the unexpected."
"Well I will say this: expect the unexpected – because everyone says that, right?" jokes Jimmy. "I have some things planned that I think are going to be a lot of fun. I have a prank that the audience is going to be involved in that we're going to play on people who are not watching at home, so I think that's going to be really good."
Jimmy adds that lots of "actors from your favorite shows" will pitch in with some of the comedy bits, so, "I think we're in good shape."
One person that Jimmy couldn't get, however, was Oprah, and he jests: "She's in South Africa working on her school with her orphans. She really needs to re-prioritize."
The Primetime Emmy Awards telecast will air live from the Nokia Theater at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 23 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. on ABC.
