Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel spoofed Michelle Duggar and 19 Kids and Counting last night. The skit was a result of the Duggar family’s announcement that Michelle Duggar is expecting her 20th child. The super-sized family remains in the spotlight and is the talk of water coolers across America.
Jimmy Kimmel opened the spoof by joking,
I understand congratulations are in order for the Duggar family. Michelle Duggar announced today that she is expecting her 20th child. Wouldn’t it be easier to announce when she’s not pregnant?
Kimmel went on to explain that all nineteen children have names that begin with the letter “J.” he joked that some of their names are Jelly Belly, Jet Blue, Jingle Bells, Jiffy Pop, Jumanji, and Jar Jar Bates. He added, “I hope the next one is Jermajesty.”
Jimmy Kimmel Live then spoofed Michelle Duggar and 19 Kids and Counting even more by staging the big announcement on the Today Show. The real Duggar kids said they were very excited about having another brother or sister, however Jimmy Kimmel’s production staff added in another kid was said…
My mom is mentally unstable. She is a threat to herself and others. Help!
The sheer size of the Duggar family is a mystery to many, but the reality is that this super-sized family is also an inspiration to many others. The Duggars rely on no public assistance whatsoever. Plus, they volunteer in the community and fly under the radar, unlike the Gosselins or Kardashians.

About Jimmy Kimmel Live:
Jimmy Kimmel Live premiered on January 26, 2003, following the Super Bowl. The show is no longer “live” as it tapes nightly at 7:00 p.m. PT, except in the event of special live editions after major events, like the Academy Awards. In 2004, due to increasing concerns about offending local affiliates, the show began taping an hour before airtime so network executives can vet it before it goes to air. Jimmy Kimmel Live is ABC’s longest running late night talk show, surpassing The Dick Cavett Show and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.
Regular and popular sketches include “Unnecessary Censorship,” “Guillermo’s Hollywood Round-UP” and “Touch the Head.”
