It sounds like you are using the coverage nose plugin.  It prints a 
textual report when the tests are finished.

I prefer to use coverage to run nosetests rather than to run coverage 
within nose.  The nose plugin seems to have no option to skip the 
report.  "coverage run" will run a program under coverage measurement, 
then later (if you wish), "coverage report" will report on the results.
