Just as it is about to be bounced from its current time period at 11:35 p.m. to midnight, ABC’s Nightline has claimed the largest lead among 25-54-year-old viewers over NBC’s Tonight show and CBS’s Late Show in recent years. According to figures released by Nielsen Research and reported by MediaBistro.com, Nightline led Tonight by 45,000 viewers, its best since the 1994-95 season. It led CBS’s Late Show by 186,000 viewers, best since the 1998-99 season. All three shows, however, were down from last year, as viewers increasingly migrate to programming on cable TV and the Internet and use their DVRs to watch programs recorded during primetime.
