It's going to be a big week for our favorite late night host as Jimmy Kimmel Live moves to 11:35 pm!

ABC announced the move in August , saying it was to capitalize on ratings momentum and advertising demand.

Kimmel kicks off the week with a special midnight show Monday night.

Jimmy Kimmel Live: Goodbye to Midnight will air in his old midnight time slot and take a look back at the shows memorable moments from the first 10 seasons.

Then Tuesday, Kimmel will move to 11:35 pm, right after 7 Action News at 11 pm. The time slot is expected  to be very competitive as Kimmel will be taking on late night icons Jay Leno and David Letterman.

Kimmel is scheduled to be joined by some high powered celebrities during his first days in his new time slot.

On Tuesday he will welcome Jennifer Aniston and No Doubt. Wednesday Jimmy will host Ryan Gosling and Brad Paisley, while Thursday will bring Dr. Mehmet Oz and the NBA's Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to the show.

Jimmy will round out the week be welcoming Modern Family's Sofia Vergara, author George Lois and singer Bruno Mars to the show on Friday.

Kimmel's move will push Nightline back to 12:35 pm. The show is also expected to expand into primetime, airing on Friday nights at 9:00 pm, beginning March 1.
