Jimmy Kimmel gave a heartfelt tribute to his friend Don Rickles on Thursday, April 6, 2017, the day of Don Rickles' death. Jimmy shared his favorite story that Don told him about Frank Sinatra and a ketchup bottle. Jimmy recalled the times Don came on as a guest for his show and the dinner tradition he tried to keep whenever Don appeared on the show. Jimmy always looked up to Don and recalled, "He gave me advice and good advice – not just the advice people give you just to hear themselves giving you advice. He'd always then say, 'keep my name alive' which I thought was funny because I was like, yah know, you're Don Rickles you keep MY name alive!"
