Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out NBC’s Cozy Relationship With Trump: ‘NBC Sucks’

  Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out NBC’s Cozy Relationship With Trump: ‘NBC Sucks’ On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel escalated his feud with NBC over their questionable decision to give in to President Trump’s demands and air a town hall with him at the same time as Joe Biden’s over on ABC. Given that Trump’s interview would also air on MSNBC and CNBC, the ratings-obsessed commander-in-chief would surely garner bigger ratings and also siphon viewers from his opponent. “Presidential debate number two was scheduled for this evening but instead we got two dueling town halls—Joe Biden on ABC, Donald Trump on NBC,” explained Kimmel on his late-night show. “NBC pulled a very sneaky move.

Jimmy and Tam , the self-confessed “battlers” from Brisbane, are on The Block for their daughter. Jimmy is no stranger to a worksite and has been around plenty of renovations with his plumbing work. Whereas Tam brings a unique sense of style and knack for finding a bargain to The Block this year.

The Block 2020 is finally hitting our screens on August 23 – and it’s shaping up to be an absolutely bayside suburb of Brighton, ready for five teams to completely renovate them over a 12-week period. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s contestants : 1. Jimmy and Tam , QLD.

When Queenslanders Jimmy and Tam first started winning rooms and challenges on The Block, their fellow Blockheads sportingly cheered on their success.

But as the weeks go on and the married couple keep taking home the cash, the cheers are starting to fade.

"It just seems to be Jimmy and Tam at it again, winning money!" Harry, 57, tells TV WEEK.

"To be honest, every time a challenge is on, we feel as if, 'Why bother? We're not going to win.' So we've lost the drive to even try to compete!"

And the gag was back in full force on Sunday night when the ex-WAG, 35, failed to attend the AFL's first-ever virtual Brownlow Medal Count. Nadia is routinely the subject of ironic Tweets praising her 'stunning bravery', and Sunday's no-show proved the perfect opportunity for the critics to resurface.

With the pressures of front garden week taking their toll, Harry, Tash, Sarah and George gather for a quiet meal away from the other contestants. They wonder if there's any point even turning up for the next contest.

"It was so skewed because they're so competitive," Harry says. "You just sort of think, 'Why waste our time?'

A big part of the frustration, Tash, 32, admits, is that five weeks back from the site being locked down amid the coronavirus pandemic, any little setback is starting to feel much worse without the support of the friends and family they haven't seen for so long.

"By this stage, everyone is missing someone," she says. "Parents are missing their kids, Sarah and George are missing their family, Dad's missing Mum, and I really miss my partner Brad.

"He's the person I go home to every single night; he's my biggest support on a day-to-day basis."

"At this end of the competition, we're really starting to feel quite flat and all we really want is to have our main everyday support person there.

"To get shot down again, you just want to go home and sit with your partner and wash the day off. But unfortunately you can't."

But although everyone is missing their loved ones, at least they have each other, Tash says.

"We've become really close to Sarah and George," she tells. "They're our little support system, our little Block family!"
