ABC to try late night Leach/Chong show

ABC confirmed yesterday that later this month it will begin testing a new late night program hosted by Robin Leach and Rae Dawn Chong that will mix entertainment and a direct marketing concept.

So far, 40 ABC affiliates have agreed to participate in the four-to-six-week test that will begin Oct. 19. The only ABC-owned station to carry the test will be KTRK-TV, Houston. The web expects the station list to be at 50 outlets at test start.

“Nightcap” will air at 1 a.m. Mondays and Fridays because of delays from Monday Night Football and “ABC in Concert,” while Tuesday through Thursday the program will air at midnight following “Nightline.”
