Yeah that may be but I watched some Nightline and not Kimmel. To bad I'm not staying up that late on the off chance that I will like a story they run.
Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?

" For ABC, if Kimmel succeeds in the timeslot he will bring in “substantially” more revenue that “Nightline” did, a source explains."

That is one of the reasons.

In my household, that's a pretty big if, but I know I'm not the demographic they're looking for.

I find Kimmel more than a bit on the boorish side, not as bad as Letterman, who's old enough to know better.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Competition in the time-slot is pretty good....and with Letterman aging and Leno only planning to stick around another couple years...

It's probably a lower-risk move to have Kimmel join the time-slot.

I'd be counting the time until Nightline is cancelled.

Why cancel Nightline when Nightline has actually been beating both Leno and Letterman in the ratings?

Interesting, but if ABC is winning the time slot, why move Nightline out of the slot? Why tamper with success?

When I first heard about this, I assumed they were talking about Fallon. Then I realized, that schlub Kimmel?? RU kidding me? What a zero. Bland, safe, corny, zero edge, another middle of the road shlockmeister from ABC, the guys who fired Maher for having a spine. Figures.
