How Is ABC's 'Kimmel' Doing in the Former 'Nightline' Slot? EW
ABC's decision to shift “Jimmy Kimmel” into the 11:30 p.m. time slot, bumping "Nightline" from its roost, hasn't had dramatic results yet, reports EW.com's Inside TV.
In fact, “Kimmel's” performance in the February sweeps was lower than what "Nightline" did in February 2012, the story notes.
The story reports: "According to live plus same day ratings from Nielsen, ‘Kimmel’ was down 12% in adults 18-49 (1.007 million versus 1.143 million) and 25% in viewers (2.883 million versus 3.828 million) compared to what the news magazine averaged last year."
