Dr. Ben Carson impressed a lot of people during Wednesday night's Republican presidential debate, but Jimmy Kimmel wasn't one of them. "Ben Carson, to me, comes off like a guy who grabbed the wrong drink at Bill Cosby's house," he said on Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live. "But his performance last night did inspire a new product that, if it sells as well as I think it will, could possibly make him wealthier than Donald Trump."

That product is a "Ben Carson Sleep System," and Kimmel showed his ad. It's pretty funny, if you can stay awake through Carson's "dulcet tones" set to soft music. The payoff, if you need one, is a Donald Trump joke. Peter Weber
