"Jimmy Kimmel Live" will move to the 11:35 p.m. time slot! The move will put ABC's late-night talk show in head-to-head competition with "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Show with David Letterman."

"Nightline" will move to the 12:35 a.m. time slot to allow viewers to begin and end their day with news.

WANDERING Minstrel!

This is probably a mistake. Nightline has always done pretty well for ABC but they've never had much luck with a talk show going head to head with The Tonight Show/ And now with Letterman in the mix? I like Kimmel but I think he's gonna get slaughtered. I hope I'm wrong.

Stupid move. Nightline has routinely beat the Tonight Show in total viewers pretty much since Conan took over. Of course this is all about demos but, I just did a quick search, for the most part Nightline's demos are just below Jay's and well above David's.

I am sure ABC thinks Nightline's audience will adjust but I have a feeling they won't. I am also pretty sure they won't start watching Jimmy either considering they didn't bother sticking around for him before.

I prefer it over the other two as well but dang it I love my Nightline at 11:35 :(

I will most likely rarely be up to see it now.
