ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has predicted that the Internet will so fractionize the audience that the networks will be forced to cut the pay of late-night personalities. In an interview with Broadcasting & Cable, Kimmel said, "I really believe I'm on the very tail end of television as a big money-making business." He said that as the Internet divides up the audience, talk-show hosts will no longer be paid as much as he is being paid now. (He did not indicate what his salary actually is.) "People will be making money, they just won't be making a lot of money. Even successful shows or programming will bring in small amounts of money." He said that he can't predict when "the golden age of making a lot of money as a television personality" will end, but, he said, "I was lucky enough to get in before The Doors closed."
