07:25 AM ET 10.17 | Jimmy Kimmel's appearance on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" was his last. Kimmel, the host of ABC's late-night talk show, was put on early in the third quarter with the Giants leading the Falcons, 21-10, ostensibly to enliven a rout. He joked about where Joe Theismann was (fired and replaced by Ron Jaworski); cracked that it was Tony Kornheiser who got Theismann axed; asked Kornheiser and Jaworski if they bet on games (they played along); and said, "I'd also like to welcome Joe Theismann, watching from his living room with steam coming from his ears." The last remark was ignored by Kornheiser, Jaworski and Mike Tirico.
