We think this speaks volumes about where the country is at right now.

For the first in history, ABC News' Nightline is #1 in total viewership for its fourth quarter, beating out its competition with 3.93 million viewers, on average.

As for Jay Leno, which airs at the same time slot, he only averaged 3.88, which is only slightly better than David Letterman, whose Late Show averaged 3.6 million in total viewers.

But back to Nightline. The news show's ratings were up 16% in total viewers, 15% in adults 25-54 and 14% in the adults 18-49 demo (1.27 million) compared to the previous quarter.

Marvelous! Good to know people are getting invested in the news again. There's a lot going on in the world and its important we all take note.

    I love nightline! They aren't like the regular news, they do really interesting slice of life stories - and it is soooo much more interesting than watching the late night comics! (P.S. I'm a conservative and not usually a fan of ABC News in general but this show is not like the nightly news or their other political news/crap shows).

    Guess what? Any show at at 11:30 at night that pulls in 3 + million viewers ain't going anywhere. Hell, if a show does 2 million in that time slot you could say the same thing. Just ask Stewart and Colbert, they average around 1 + nightly.

    Seriously if you haven't heard all the news by 11pm at night you must live some sort of crazy sheltered life

    These talk shows are dreadful, stupid, and virtually without value. They're for morons who want to watch narcissistic morons.
