It was great to hear Jimmy Kimmel in the pre-recorded opening because audio issues meant hearing his opening monologue was next to impossible. The ladies of TV -- Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham, Connie Britton and Ellen DeGeneres among them -- offered to punch the Botox out of Kimmel, but I think a lot of us would do it for free given his take-it-or-leave-it smarminess.
