How 'Nightline' is dealing with the timeslot demotion

ABC News chief Ben Sherwood said in a memo to staff: "I'm confident that our loyal viewers will stay with 'Nightline,' and its immensely talented anchors, correspondents and staff will enjoy many successes for years to come."

This show is mostly crap infotainment nowadays, so it's just as well.

Yes - way too many puff pieces and free advertising for hollywood stars and businesses in the form of really positive portrayals of stars and companies. Shamelss publicity pieces.

And other times it's using sex and scandal to catch an audience.

From what I understand Nightline regularly beats Leno and Letterman in the ratings. It's a mistake moving it to a later time. I believe it's Kimmel who'll suffer the loss most in the ratings as well as Nightline and reverse their decision by summer.

I love how the guy quoted in the article lies to try to put some sort of positive spin on Nightline being kicked in the @$$ with a new crappy timeslot.

This professional liar talks about how great and professional Nighline is.

It sure would be nice to hear a business executive tell the truth for a change and not give some political answer in an attempt to spin the situation in a positive light - especially when the situation sucks.
