Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
LOS ANGELES (AP) — ABC says it’s moving “Jimmy Kimmel Live” into the thick of the late-night fight against Jay Leno and David Letterman.
The network said Tuesday that starting in January, Kimmel’s talk show will take over the 11:35 p.m. time slot long held by the news magazine “Nightline.”
“Nightline” will move to the daily post-midnight slot and will get a new weekly prime-time slot.
ABC says the move takes advantage of ratings growth by Kimmel’s show and the potential for greater ad revenue.
Kimmel’s show will move to 11:35 p.m. Eastern on Jan. 8, with “Nightline” starting an hour later on the next night, Jan. 9, and debuting in prime time on March 1.
In its new slot, Kimmel will face NBC’s “The Tonight Show” with Leno and CBS’ “Late Show” with Letterman.

The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
