Remember that "save the date" rumor about Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, back in February? It turns out the date to save was Saturday, when the two renewed their vows at sunset on St. Lucia island in the Caribbean. Officiating was Damon's late-night frenemy, Jimmy Kimmel, according to People . Overall, it was quite the contrast to their low-key city hall ceremony in late 2005. The Damons, who met 10 years ago, spent $1 million to rent out the entire Sugar Beach resort for the pleasure of their approximately 50 guests, People reported (though other sources put the bill at a more modest $600,000)

The “Late Show” host made the journey from the Ed Sullivan Theater in Midtown Manhattan to Brooklyn on Wednesday, a seven-mile trip that took him an hour and 25 minutes, thanks to Sandy-induced gridlock.

Jimmy Kimmel's impending move to 11:35 p.m. was the talk of the television world Tuesday, and no one, it seems, is more thrilled about it than Kimmel himself. He opened his monologue Tuesday by addressing the time-slot change, which he described as “almost as exciting as Miley Cyrus' new haircut.” “It was a big day for us here today,” Kimmel admitted. “Starting in January - right around our 10-year anniversary - our show is moving from midnight to 11:35. I hope this doesn't throw off my feeding schedule.” Kimmel claimed that while the move “might not sound like a big deal - it's only 25 minutes,” it was nevertheless “the most important 25 minutes of my life since the first 14 times I had sex.” Best of all for Kimmel, it means people will no longer be able to use his ABC show's late time slot as a reason not to watch.
