Nightline, or ABC News Nightline is a late-night news program that is broadcast by ABC in the United States, and has a franchised formula to other networks and stations elsewhere in the world. Created by Roone Arledge, the program featured Ted Koppel as its main anchor from March 1980 until his retirement from the program in November 2005. Nightline airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. Eastern Time, after Jimmy Kimmel Live!. It previously ran for 31 minutes, but in 2011, the program was reduced to 25 minutes. When the program moved to 12:35 a.m. ET, the program was expanded to 30 minutes. In 2002, Nightline was ranked 23rd on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.

Nightline was a late-night news bulletin produced by Nine News. Introduced in 1992, it was axed in 2008 then brought back in 2009 and it was axed again in July 2010. It aired at around 11.30 pm weeknights, but was not shown in Perth or Adelaide. Nightline was previously presented by Kellie Connolly. Its main competitors were Ten Late News and ABC News's Lateline - which both air prior to Nightline at 10:30pm The series was patterned after the version that airs on ABC, but that one is different from the Australian counterpart even though at one point both versions used the same opening graphics, which both no longer use.
