Obscure kitsch aficionado Quentin Tarantino is guest-directing tonight's Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Apparently, he'll do anything to promote Kill Bill Vol. 2. Last week, he was a guest judge on American Idol, and somehow Simon Cowell escaped a graphic buggering to a catchy 70s tune mangled by a pitchy karaoke singer.

On most nights, we'd rather reprise the ear-slicing scene from Reservoir Dogs than sit through an hour of Kimmel. Maybe tonight we'll get lucky and it'll be Kimmel whose ears bleed as musical guest The Darkness covers "Stuck in the Middle With You."
