"JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE" CELEBRATES THE 2ND ANNUAL NATIONAL UNFRIEND DAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2011
Last year Jimmy Kimmel declared November 17 - National UnFriend Day (NUD). NUD is a holiday dedicated to giving Facebook users the opportunity to "unfriend" people without any guilt. This annual event was created to weed out people on Facebook whom users wouldn't usually have contact with in their day to day lives, reserving the connection only for true friends.
This year, Kimmel is gearing up for NUD by encouraging people to evaluate their Facebook "friendships." On November 17, join the late night host and pledge to cleanse your Facebook page of non-friends.
During this year's NUD celebration, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" welcomes Twilight's Peter Facinelli, Jamie Oliver, and musical guest Vince Gill.
