JIMMY KIMMEL MOVES TO LATE-NIGHT
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- When "Jimmy Kimmel Live" premieres a half-hour earlier tonight, Jay Leno will have a one-minute head start. The "Tonight" show will air a minute earlier to try to steal viewers from Kimmel. He says it's "an interesting strategy." Kimmel says it shows him that they're "a bit concerned." -- "We'll never be on later than this again." That's what Jimmy Kimmel told his audience last night, as he wrapped up his final show in the midnight time-slot. Kimmel thanked his viewers for staying up late all these years. Kimmel said "hopefully" they'll "make many more memories" in the years to come. He ended the show with the running gag of apologizing to Matt Damon for running out of time, saying he'd be rescheduled. Beginning tonight, ABC is moving up the start of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" by a half-hour. He'll be head-to-head with Jay Leno and David Letterman.
