After toning the jokes down to talk about gun control and healthcare, Jimmy Kimmel told CBS Sunday Morning that he’s seen his show’s ratings amongst Republicans plummet — and while it isn’t ideal, the late-night host says, he would “do it again in a heartbeat.”

“I’m nobody’s moral arbiter. You don’t have to watch the show, you don’t have to listen to what I say,” Kimmel told correspondent Tracy Smith. “I want everyone with a television to watch the show, but if they’re so turned off by my opinion on healthcare and gun violence, then, I don’t know. I probably won’t want to have a conversation with them anyway.”
