ABC has denied a New York Times report that its entertainment division is considering moving Jimmy Kimmel to 11 35 p.m. in the fall in order to compete directly against Conan O'Brien when O'Brien takes over as host of the Tonight show. Today's (Thursday) Hollywood Reporter quoted an unnamed ABC source as saying that no such conversations -- "zero" -- between the entertainment and news divisions had taken place. Such a move would have booted the half-hour nightly Nightline from its 11 35 time period.
