  • Late night television in television broadcast programming is dayparting. It follows prime time and precedes the overnight television programming graveyard slot. The slot generally runs from about 11:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. local time, with variations according to the time zone. In the United States and Canada, however, the term "late night" is synonymous with the late-night talk show, a type of comedic talk and variety show. Thus, the late night programming block is considered more important in North America. On most major-network stations, a late local newscast airs at the beginning of the block. In the United Kingdom, the late night spot is not seen as a priority; ITV and Channel 4 program repeats in the time slot, and the BBC's channels primarily show BBC World News, air movies or replay documentaries. Similarly, Australian television primarily airs lower-priority imported series or overflows of sports programming in the late night time slot.
