‘Jimmy Kimmel’ records strong November sweep

ABC talkshow looking good heading into timeslot shift

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” is heading into its 11:30 p.m. berth in top form.

ABC’s latenight talkshow just completed its best November sweep since launching in 2003. Show continues to grow in its current midnight timeslot and recorded year-to-year growth in total viewers.

The series shifted from its Hollywood Boulevard home to Brooklyn for a handful of episodes during the sweep and recorded its second-most watched week in show history.

Alphabet has enough faith in “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to move it directly against heavyweights “The Late Show With David Letterman” on CBS and NBC’s venerable “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” The timeslot shift takes place Jan. 8.

Kimmel’s stature has been raised over the past year as he served as both the emcee of the White House Correspondents Dinner and as host of the recent Emmy Awards, which aired on ABC.
