Yahoo! unveiled its new slate of original programming at its newfront presentation Monday, including new comedy series from Ed Helms and John Stamos.
Everything's coming up Kimmel!
Jimmy Kimmel made an impressive debut in his new 11:35 p.m. timeslot, beating David Letterman and falling just short of his rival Jay Leno.
A week's worth of notable TV has been crammed into one very busy night. Let's take it from the top.
ABC has started promoting Jimmy Kimmel Live's big move to 11:35/10:35c, and tonight will lean on a network titan to help sell that message. Barbara Walters has taped a spot highlighting Kimmel's time slot promotion, which takes place next month.
Walters' promo will air during the 90-minute special Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012, airing Tuesday night at 9:30/8:30c.

The Walters promo is also notable because her special is produced by ABC News. Kimmel's move back a half hour (starting January 8) is displacing ABC News' Nightline, which shifts to 12:35/11:35c. Perhaps a sign of no hard feelings?
Here's the short Walters promo — featuring a cameo by Jimmy Kimmel Live's Guillermo Rodriguez — that will air tonight...
Dolly Parton has denied long-circulating speculation that she is gay in a candid interview with Nightline.
The legendary singer and gay icon, whose been married to her husband Carl Dean for 46 years, shut down the reports that she is romantically involved with her childhood friend Judy Ogle. In fact, the singer says she has even bonded over the gay rumors with her pal Oprah Winfrey.

Election Day is finally here! And your favorite Tuesday night shows will step aside for wall-to-wall results coverage. Not sure what to watch when? Check out our roundup below to see what the networks have planned (all times Eastern):
Just in time for its 10th anniversary, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live will move to 11:35 p.m. in January, while Nightline — which has held that time slot since its launch in 1979 (as Iran Crisis: America Held Hostage) — slides to 12:35 a.m.
As part of the time slot shift (which takes effect Jan, 8), Kimmel has also extended his contract — which was set to expire in February 2013 — for another two years, keeping him at ABC until at least 2015.
Just two days before Saturday's crucial GOP primary in South Carolina, Nightline has what's characterized as a "bombshell" interview with Newt Gingrich's (second) ex-wife, Marianne.
The Tonight Show
Remember the late night wars? Now that there are so many choices on TV — even in the bedtime hours — the idea of Jay vs. Dave seems quaint.
That was all the more apparent this November, as the battle between the two late night titans came to a draw. The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (3.6 million) still held a slight edge over Late Show With David Letterman (3.4 million) in viewers. But for the first time since 1994, Letterman (with a 0.9 rating) managed to beat ...
