Jimmy Kimmel Dates His Staff, Too!

What's with all the late-night hosts dipping their pens in the company ink?

Hot on the heels of the David Letterman sex scandal comes the news that talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is dating one of his staffers.

The comedian, who split with girlfriend of five years, Sarah Silverman, in March, is now dating Molly McNearney, a co-head writer Jimmy Kimmel Live!, his rep confirmed.

"After Jimmy and Sarah broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked," an insider told People.com. "They're really happy together."

Molly started on the show as an assistant in 2003, became a writer in 2006, and was promoted to her current position as co-head writer in May 2008.

Sources say that Jimmy and Molly's personal relationship isn't having a negative affect on the show because "during work hours, they keep things professional."
