Upon initially announcing listings for this week’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” episode, ABC said that the August 9 episode would feature interviews with Bob Newhart and Awkwafina and a musical performance by Blood Orange featuring A$AP Rocky.
It has since revised those listings.
ABC now says that Kanye West will replace Newhart as the lead interview guest. Awkwafina is still scheduled for her interview, but Blood Orange and A$AP Rocky are no longer scheduled for a performance.
The updated listings follow:
Wednesday, Aug. 8
1. Kristen Bell (“Like Father”) 2. John David Washington (“BlacKkKlansman”) 3. Musical Guest Brett Eldredge
Thursday, Aug. 9
1. Kanye West (“Ye”) 2. Awkwafina (“Crazy Rich Asians”)
Friday, Aug. 10 (OAD: 7/30/18)
