For the third week in a row, ABC’s “Nightline” has placed first in Total Viewers against Conan O’Brien and David Letterman. Last week, Nightline narrowly beat out both “The Late Show” and “The Tonight Show” thanks in large part to strong viewership following the Michael Jackson memorial. The last time “Nightline” was number one in overall viewers three weeks straight was in 1996.
