Jimmy Kimmel Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel is going out with a woman on his staff, his rep confirms. 

While this might bring to mind the recent scandal involving David Letterman, there's really no comparison, a source tells People magazine. 

Kimmel, the 41-year-old host of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, went out with comic Sarah Silverman for five years, until March.

Kimmel has been dating Molly McNearney, a longtime staffer on his ABC show, for several months.

"After Jimmy and Sarah broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked," the People source said. "They're really happy together."

McNearney, 31, first joined the show's staff as an assistant to the executive producer in July 2003. She began writing on the show in 2006, and was promoted to co-head writer in May 2008.
