NEW YORK (AP) — ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" has gotten a warm welcome on its first night airing 30 minutes earlier.
Kimmel went head-to-head Tuesday for the first time against CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" and NBC's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno." According to Nielsen fast national ratings, Kimmel edged out Letterman and ran slightly behind Leno in total viewers.
