Comedian Jimmy Kimmel has a running gag on his ABC television show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he apologizes for not being able to interview Damon at the end of each show. It pinnacled in a planned skit on September 12, 2006, when Damon stormed off after having his interview cut short.

Damon emerged in several of E! Entertainment’s top ten Jimmy Kimmel Live! spoofs. On January 24, 2013, he took over his show and mentioned the long-standing feud and having been bumped from years of shows. It involved celebrities who were formerly involved in the “feud”, including Robin Williams, Ben Affleck, and Sarah Silverman.
