‘Nightline’ Retains Top Spot with Letterman Out

By kevin 

ABC’s “Nightline” retained the top spot in Total Viewers last week, while “The Late Show” was in a second week of reruns. Conan O’Brien and “The Tonight Show” remain the leader in the A25-54 demo, but that gap was down to 80K. This marks the eighth week in a row “Nightline” has beaten “Tonight” in Total Viewers, which hasn’t happened since 1995.
