Beeb at 10 is good news.
A spokesman said: "If anything, this is good news for ITV as it undermines the ITC's argument that we should re-schedule the Nightly News."
ITV will go to the High Court next month to try to stop the watchdog making them show its late-night news before 11pm.
If ITV loses, the change would have to happen by year end - which could upset BBC plans.
BBC director general Greg Dyke denied the move was "dumbing down" and he told media bosses in Edinburgh: "The main reason, simply, is more people will watch it."
Dyke also said last night that extended regional bulletins would follow the BBC News at 10.
