"Alright, it's time for the fun part of the evening," Kimmel said at Saturday's event. "I'd like everyone to look under your seats. Under each one you will find a copy of Keith Olbermann's resume. Is Keith here tonight? Limo wouldn't pick him up? The thing about Keith Olbermann is he's so likable."

"Al Gore launched Current TV in 2005 and it took off like a North Korean rocket," Kimmel added. "To be honest, I didn't even know Current TV was still on the air, but then I don't get channel a million ... Keith Olbermann burned more bridges than the Arsonist of Madison County. He has more pink slips than Marcus Bachmann."

Olbermann took to Twitter, posting a series of tweets about Kimmel's comedy routine:
