If Leno hadn't decided to stay at NBC for a nightly prime-time show, it was a good bet that he'd head to another network. ABC, and the late-night time slot held by ``Nightline,'' would have been a strong possibility, given its attempt to lure David Letterman six years ago.
James Goldston, executive producer of ``Nightline,'' says it wasn't a certainty that ``Nightline'' would go to make room for Leno; the show is coming off a strong November ratings ``sweep,'' with a larger audience than Letterman.
