Leno Returns Strong Against Letterman, ‘Nightline’

leno_3-11.jpgThe Olympics are over. Jay Leno is back. David Letterman‘s live again. The late-night race is on.

ABC’s “Nightline,” which grew its audience week-to-week, was narrowly third behind Letterman in Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo. “Nightline” was second in A18-49.
