ABC’s “Nightline” outperformed CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman among Total Viewers and the A5-54 demo for the third week in a row during the week of September 8.

Helped by strong numbers on Thursday and Friday for the interview with Gov. Sarah Palin, “Nightline” continues to increase during the third quarter while both CBS and NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno have declined.
