*** PROGRAM CHANGE ***

MATT DAMON HIJACKS "JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE" AND BRINGS THE SHOW TO PRIMETIME, TUESDAY, JANUARY 29 AT 10:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC

Last night Jimmy Kimmel's arch nemesis, Oscar winner Matt Damon, exacted his revenge following a decade of torture by hijacking Kimmel's late-night show and renaming it "Jimmy Kimmel Sucks." Damon showed Kimmel how it's done by packing his one-evening-only late-night turn with comedy and a cavalcade of A-list stars. On the heels of the ratings success of the episode, it will have a special primetime encore, TUESDAY, JANUARY 29 at 10:00 p.m., ET. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 1/24/13)

Note: This program replaces "Body of Proof: Mind Games."

Damon replaced Kimmel's longtime sidekick, Guillermo, with legendary actor Andy Garcia, his best childhood friend and bandleader, Cleto, with multi-Grammy winner Sheryl Crow, and packed his couch with such Hollywood notables as Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon and Demi Moore, plus special guest appearances by comedians Robin Williams and Sarah Silverman. Even Ben Affleck stopped by to participate in the big night, though his allegiance was torn between childhood friend Damon and former paramour Kimmel.

Featuring Matt Damon's takeover of Kimmel's late-night show on Thursday (1/24/13), ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" ranked as the No. 1 program in late-night in both Households (2.92 rating) and Adults 18-49 (1.23 rating) in Nielsen's 56 Metered Markets. Thursday's telecast marked "JKL's" best yet since moving to 11:35 p.m. in HH, and its 2nd-strongest in young adults. In the key Adult 18-49 demo, "JKL" beat NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" by 62% and CBS' "The Late Show with David Letterman" by 120%. In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "JKL" ranked No. 1 in 9 of the Top 10 U.S. markets in Adults 18-49, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
