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.
