Kimmel to broadcast from Missouri City

Jimmy Kimmel has made his choice, and he’ll be broadcasting from the ‘burbs.

A Missouri City family has been chosen to house television talk show host Jimmy Kimmel when he comes to Houston for a live broadcast Friday night.

Johnnie and Billye Moutra and their children, Loretta, 24, and Johnnie Jr., 20, were selected from 4,000 Houston-area applicants who offered to let Kimmel stay in their home during Super Bowl week. The family got the news during a telecast of Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night. The program airs weeknights at 11:05 p.m. on Channel 13.

“We thought we might get 100 or 200 offers,” executive director Duncan Gray said. “This is great. The people in Houston have responded to the show.”

Gray said the Moutras were chosen “because their family dynamics are fun. They have a TV presence. I think you’d like to spend an hour in their company.”

Kimmel will spend two nights with the Moutra family. He will leave Los Angeles late Thursday and return on Saturday.

Well, they did say that proximity to Reliant Stadium was a secondary consideration. Hope the traffic on US-90A isn’t too bad for you, Jimbo.
