The road to a post-sweep premiere date for Nightline: Two Truths And A Lie had been in the works for a while. Certainly since Nightline was bumped from its longtime nightly perch to 12:30 AM when ABC shifted Jimmy Kimmel Live! into the traditional late-night talk show slot at 11:30. The new weekly hourlong show will air at 10 PM beginning May 29 and is billed as a “survival guide to the modern consumer jungle”, offering “a mix of compelling undercover investigations and lively dispatches separating fact from fiction about how you spend your money”. Nightline’s Cynthia McFadden and Bill Weir will co-anchor, with reports from ABC News correspondents. Jeanmarie Condon is executive producer, and David Scott is senior broadcast producer.
