After switching over to extended coverage of coronavirus, ABC News‘ “Nightline” is also moving back to its 11:35 p.m. eastern timeslot temporarily.
The show will move into the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” slot for at least the week of March 16, 2020.
“Kimmel” has temporarily suspended production and is airing reruns — so the move makes a certain amount of sense.
In 2012, “Nightline” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” swapped places — so this will essentially put the shows back in its original spots for at least a week.
