*(Please note: In East Coast and Central markets, stations may cut away to local news and rejoin Network coverage at 11:35 p.m. An edition of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" will be provided to East Coast and Central markets at 12:06 a.m., unless West Coast results are still not known, in which case ABC News coverage may preempt "Kimmel" in those markets).

"On February 5, more states will have primaries and caucuses on a single day than has ever happened in U.S. history. In giving this historic evening the coverage it deserves, ABC News underscores its ongoing commitment to providing political reporting and analysis more comprehensive and insightful than anyone else can provide," said ABC News President David Westin.

"Nightline" will air at 11:35 p.m., PT (and only in the Pacific Time Zone). Terry Moran and Cynthia McFadden will anchor this special edition from New York and Los Angeles with reports from ABC News correspondents across the February 5th Super Tuesday states.

ABCNEWS.com will provide wall-to-wall coverage of Super Tuesday, featuring real-time results directly on the homepage.

Coverage will include live coverage from 8:06 p.m., ET through at least 12:58 a.m., ET (Wednesday); special reports as the winners are declared and one-minute status reports six times an hour from 7:00 p.m., ET until 1:00 a.m., ET. On Monday, February 4 Aaron Katersky will host a one-hour Instant Special previewing Super Tuesday at 7:06 p.m., ET.
