Jimmy Kimmel Talks Hosting The White House Correspondents Dinner (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Monday marked Jimmy Kimmel's first night back at "Live!" since hosting the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday, and the comedian took a few minutes to reflect on his experience. More specifically, the media reaction to it.

It turns out that while people like Marcus Bachmann and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie took their jokes at the dinner in stride, other people -- namely Barbara Walters -- weren't quite as receptive to the loving jabs.

We're not sure whose reactions we loved more, those of the secret service who kept it entirely stoic during Kimmel's speech, or those of the CNN correspondents who had to comment on it the next day.

How do you think Kimmel did as a host? Let us know in the comments.
