With New Late Shows, Letterman Still Loses to Nightline

ABC’s Nightline beat CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman last week in both Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo — with the late night show back in original episodes. NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno was #1.

All three shows declined week-to-week in the demo, with only Nightline down in Total Viewers.
