ABC’s “Nightline” continues its growth. The news show is up season to date, first quarter to date, and year over year. Season to date, “Nightline” is up 14% in Total Viewers and 4% in A25-54 viewers. The program is also in second place in the younger demo, season to date.
Last week, with Leno and Letterman in re-runs, “Nightline” topped CBS’s “Late Show” in Total Viewers and in the demo.
Additionally, this past Monday night, Nightline got a boost from “The Bachelor” finale beating Letterman and Leno in the A25-54 demo in LPMs (Local People Meters in 21 U.S. markets). Letterman and Leno aired new shows Monday.
