Every night for the past several years, Jimmy Kimmel has been signing off his eponymous show by apologizing to Matt Damon for running out of time.

The gag was funny to everyone except one person: Matt Damon.


Last night, after being bumped a total of 1,205 times, the actor finally got back at Kimmel by bumping him from the show.


Kidnapping Kimmel and renaming the show Jimmy Kimmel Sucks, Damon took over the late night gig and quickly made the place his own.

First, he replaced Kimmel's sidekick/henchman Guillermo with Andy Garcia, and brought in Sheryl Crow to be his new bandleader.

He hired a ringer — Robin Williams — to do his monologue, and invited his A-list friends Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, Amy Adams to be guests on the show.

Along the way several other notables made cameos: Ben Affleck, Reese Witherspoon, Demi Moore, and even Kimmel's former flame Sarah Silverman, who heartlessly compared her relationship with Kimmel to a New York City hot dog that you buy from a street vendor, put inside you, and then later regret it.

Kimmel, who remained tied up behind Damon throughout the show, later hinted on Twitter that there was more to come. "You win this round Matt Damon. But I will win the war," he tweeted.
