Look out, David and Jay.
You’re going to have some more competition starting in January.
ABC will move Jimmy Kimmel Live! to 11:35 p.m. starting on Jan. 8, going directly head-to-head with NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman.
“Given the passionate fan base ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ has built over the past decade, and the show’s ratings and creative momentum this season, the time is right to make this move,” Anne Sweeney, co-chair of Disney Media Neworks and president of the Disney/ABC Television Group, said in a statement.”
Nightline will move to 12:35 a.m. and get a new Friday prime time show starting on March 1.
“Thanks to all for the kind words re. our move to 11:35 in Jan. I feel like a real life Princess,” Jimmy Kimmel tweeted on Tuesday.
