ET's Rocsi Diaz was granted a one-on-one tour of the newly refurbished Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! stage with the host himself just one day before the show moves to an earlier time slot.
By bumping the show up to 11:35 pm Kimmel is now in direct competition with The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Show with David Letterman, but he doesn't seem to feel any added pressure.

"I don't feel nervous about it," Kimmel told Rocsi. "Maybe I should be nervous about it, but I'm not."
One reason for his confidence might be the stellar lineup of guests scheduled to appear in the coming days.
"We got everyone we wanted," Kimmel raved. "We got Jennifer Aniston; we got Ryan Gosling; we got Ellen DeGeneres; we got Ray Romano; we have Bruno Mars. We have a pretty great list, I think."
