Popular late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel says he won't change his style or become more "family friendly" now that the ABC network has moved his show to the earlier spot, 10:35 cst, formerly occupied by Nightline.
"There's this idea that you need to broaden the show or make it ... more
wholesome or something like that. And I think that's a little bit
out-of-date, that perception," Kimmel said.
It's Kimmel's hope that the move to 10:35 will help his show take the lead in the late night race among himself and superstars Jay Leno and David Letterman.
According to the Associate Press, Leno claims the top talk-show spot with some 3.5 million average
viewers, followed by Letterman on CBS with 2.8 million. "Jimmy Kimmel
Live" was drawing under 2 million nightly viewers at 12:05 Eastern but,
according to Nielsen Co. ratings, finished up 2012 with a 10-year
The Associated Press also said whether Kimmel gets a jump on his opponents-to-be - with Jimmy Fallon
the expected pick for "Tonight" - being the late-night ruler is a far
different proposition than in Johnny Carson's day. The "Tonight"
institution, operating virtually unopposed, could average a nightly
audience of as much as 15 million.
Watch Jimmy Kimmel's show starting Tuesday, January 8, 2013, at 10:35 pm. on KLTV, followed by Nightline at 11L35 p.m. This change will be occurring across all ABC affiliates.
