(CNN) - Jimmy Kimmel is going head-to-head with the big boys of late night T-V.  ABC has announced it's moving "Jimmy Kimmel Live" from midnight to an 11:35 p-m start on January 9th.

That will put Kimmel in direct competition with NBC's Jay Leno and CBS' David Letterman.

And it pushes ABC's long-running news program "Nightline" back an hour.
ABC's president says she sees potential for increased advertising revenue with the shift.
