:"This article pertains to the U.S. sitcom. For the Australian current affairs program, see Lateline."

"LateLine" was an American TV sitcom that ran on NBC from March 17, 1998, through March 16, 1999. Due to an abrupt cancellation, there were seven unaired episodes (three of which were telecast by the Showtime cable/satellite television channel in December 1999).

Created by John Markus and Al Franken (the latter of whom co-starred in the series), "LateLine" depicted the behind-the-scenes goings-on of a fictitious late-night television news broadcast, patterned in part after the long-running ABC program "Nightline". Many plotlines in the series were satirical, dealing with topics like Deep Throat and the Watergate break-in, and the episodes often had cameos by famous politicians.

On August 17, 2004, Paramount released a DVD set containing all nineteen episodes on three discs.
