Last Jimmy Kimmel’s show featured, among other things, his annual Halloween candy prank where parents send video from all over the country, telling their kids they ate all of the Halloween candy last night they got from trick-or-treating.

This year’s video featured less than three children who forgave their parents, most of them threw incredibly loud tantrums, some of them hit their parents.

Highlights of this year feature one bright young boy who totally guessed what his mother tried to do, claiming he had seen the videos before on YouTube, and Kimmel’s inclusion of his 2-year-old daughter, which seemed unfazed by the prank.

The video, already on YouTube, curiously has a modest 800,000 view count.

Celebrities read mean tweets: Country Edition

‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ also took the opportunity to celebrate the upcoming Country Music Awards (CMA’s), which air tonight at 7/8p.m. central time on ABC.

In a new edition of the ‘Celebrities Read Mean Tweets’ sketch, the comedian brought some of the most recognizable names in the industry like Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Florida Georgia Line, Chris Stapleton, and others.

Jake Gyllenhaal talks about being mistaken for Aaron Rodgers

The show featured 35-year-old actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain, Nightcrawler) who is in the process of promoting his newest film ‘Nocturnal Animals,’ directed by Tom Ford, and also starring Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

The actor told Kimmel about his friend ‘Sasquatch,’ which he described as a companion who appears mostly in ‘sport-related’ events.

His explanation did not clarify whether Sasquatch was real or imaginary which prompted hilarious responses from Kimmel and the audience.

But Sasquatch appeared last, Gyllenhaal said, at the subway when he was on his way to perform in the musical ‘Sunday In The Park With George,’ at the City Center Gala, in the form of a man who confused him with the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson’s vegan cookie

The 19-year-old actress and singer-songwriter Hailee Steinfeld also appeared on the show. She is known mostly for her portrayal of Mattie Ross in the western ‘True Grit,’ alongside Jeff Bridges and directed by Steven Spielberg. She released her first EP, ‘Haiz,’ in 2015.

Steinfeld talked about her latest role in ‘The Edge of Seventeen,’ a comedy-drama film also starred by Woody Harrelson. Her co-star, who is a vegan, offered her a cookie which did not seem very edible but that she ate nonetheless, albeit with some comical disgust.

‘The Edge of Seventeen’ premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 18. It tells the story of high school junior (Nadine), who comes of age amongst a series of love and friendship encounters and finds a mentor in her history teacher, Mr. Bruner (Harrelson).
