ABC is planning on airing an hourlong prime-time version of "Nightline" on Thursday nights from July through September, according to a network insider. At CBS, executives there have been trying to convince David Letterman to move "Late Night" to 10 p.m. `ET' on Fridays for the summer to get more people to sample it.
