Jimmy Kimmel Switches Up Opening for SXSW Week (Exclusive Video)

ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" takes over Austin for the first time on March 10-14.

Jimmy Kimmel is setting up shop in Austin for South by Southwest -- and he's embracing the new locale.

ABC's late-night host has infused a bit of Texas in his opening credits for the week, where he'll be broadcasting from downtown Austin's Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Center for the Performing Arts. The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts a first look at Monday's new opening credits, featuring several of the city's hot spots, including South Austin Trailer Park and Eatery, The Broken Spoke and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
