With just a month before its timeslot change, ABC’s “Nightline” remains the No. 1 late night show.

Last Tuesday’s “Nightline,” which featured a Powerball lottery story and an interview with the Pastor behind “Two and a Half Men” star Angus T. Jones‘s moral rebellion, was the show’s most-watched telecast in more than a year – since Nov. 22, 2011.

Season to date, “Nightline” is No. 1 among the late night broadcast programs in Total Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49 — the 3rd straight year that the ABC program is taking the top spot in all 3 measures.

ABC’s ratings are based on a 25-minute broadcast, while CBS and NBC are based on approximately :50 minutes (prior to the final national commercial break of each program).
