A good time to exercise is when you can fit it into your schedule. I agree with UofMWolverines. If you actually have other activities in your life, like friends and family, school, job, hobbies, etc. then exercise can be scheduled in where there's time. Obsessing about whether the time of day is going to negate the benefits of the exercise will lead to saying, "oh I can't exercise at X o'clock so it'll be a waste of time for me to do it now". Doing something is LOTS better than worrying about the time of day.
Exercise is good for you. If doing something late in the day makes it hard to sleep, then try to fit it in earlier in the day. If getting up an hour early to exercise before you go to work is pure torture, then find another time of day to do it. In the grand scheme of things, the time of day makes no difference. People who exercise have better health than people who don't.
My two cents,
