Kimmel to Compete One-on-One with Leno & Letterman
ABC is shifting its late-night strategy in a move that will put Jimmy Kimmel in direct competition with Jay Leno and David Letterman.
The network announced Tuesday that beginning January 8, Jimmy Kimmel Live will move to the 11:35 p.m. timeslot to replace Nightline, which will be pushed back to 12:35 a.m. ABC said Nightline will also add a primetime version to air every Friday night at 9 p.m. beginning March 1.
