"Nightline" has taken the top spot in late-night in all 5 weeks of the season to date in overall viewers and in the key adult news demo.

"Nightline" was up year to year in Total Viewers (+2%) and Adults 25-54 (+2%) – 3.787 million and 1.446 million, respectively, on w/o 10/24/11.

Season to date, "Nightline" ranks No. 1 in late-night among Total Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49, ahead of both NBC's "The Tonight Show" and CBS' "The Late Show." This marks the 3rd straight year that the ABC program is taking the top spot in all 3 measures.

Last week "Nightline" took a rare look inside the new KKK, had extensive coverage of the election, and featured stories including porn before puberty, a teenage girl's suicide after being bullied, a Harvard doctor's brush with Heaven, school bus danger and a profile of rocker Rod Stewart.
