'Nightline' Moves to 11:35 p.m. EDT for Four Nights Beginning Tuesday, March 17; 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' Encore Presentations Will Air at 12:05 a.m. EDT
'Nightline' Enters Second Week of Single-Topic Late-Night News Coverage of COVID-19
ABC today announced a late-night programming swap to deliver the latest COVID-19 updates from ABC News. "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," which previously announced it will air encore presentations for two weeks, will move to 12:05 a.m. EDT starting Tuesday, March 17, and ABC News' award-winning "Nightline" will air at 11:35 p.m. EDT for four nights.
As previously announced, "Nightline" is devoting its show to sole coverage of COVID-19 and the global and domestic effects of the outbreak, marking a return to the program's roots when "Nightline" launched 40 years ago with daily news updates on the Iran hostage crisis. As the crisis continues to rapidly develop across the nation, by airing one-hour earlier, "Nightline" will reach even more people with the important context, analysis and expert insight Americans want to stay informed and safe during this uncertain time.
The latest "Nightline" reporting on COVID-19 is available HERE.
