Ed McMahon pitches for Jimmy Kimmel

July 28, 2008 9:48:55 AM PDT
Jimmy Kimmel is coming to Ed McMahon's rescue and it'll maybe even increase his own ratings. Kimmel is having McMahon be the pitchman that he is, doing comical Pontiac commercials with him on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The first airs tonight. It was taped Thursday.

McMahon has been in a brace for more than a year after breaking his neck. But, he says "It felt very good to be out of the brace and working again."

He says doing a commercial again "was very comforting. Believe me."

McMahon is embroiled in a lawsuit against a hospital, two doctors and the owner of a home where he says he fell during a dinner party in March of last year. He says the injury left him unable to work, until now. McMahon also is behind on his mortgage and is fighting foreclosure of his home.
