Even ABC Is Starting to Bully NBC Around in Late Night

Conan O'Brien's continued ratings meltdown and subsequent loss of power as a lead-in is now starting to affect his other Peacock-network chums. Not only did Craig Ferguson claim victory over Jimmy Fallon last week for the first time, but now even the perennially third-place finisher Jimmy Kimmel is eating Fallon's lunch! Last week, Jimmy Kimmel Live! posted its strongest ratings of the month and topped Fallon in total viewers for the first time since March. Is it time to push the panic button over at NBC yet? [DHD]
