ABC late night show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” is going head-to-head with NBC “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and CBS “Late Show with David Letterman.”

The network announced Tuesday that “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will move to 11:35 p.m., a time-slot held by “Nightline.” The late show will debut on its new time-slot on Jan. 8.

Anne Sweeney, co-chair of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney/ABC Television Group, said in a statement, “Given the passionate fan base ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ has built over the past decade and the show’s ratings and creative momentum this season, the time is right to make this move.”

In addition to the new time-slot, “Nightline” will move to 9 pm on Fridays, starting March 1.
