    Welcome to the Good Morning America program. For ABC, this was a much more successful morning news series than A.M. America, which had lasted the first ten months of 1975. ABC looked at one of its affiliates, WEWS in Cleveland, and admired the station's very successful news/talk series called The Morning Exchange (1972-1999). Network programming president Fred Silverman oversaw ABC's using The Morning Exchange as a model for their new program. Today the show is anchored by Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos. Ginger Zee gives weather reports throughout the morning, Amy Robach does the news, and Lara Spencer does the lifestyle reports. The show is usally in a battle for #1 with rival morning news show "Today" START YOUR DAY GOOD TO GO!moreless

    ABC
    Among the most recognized and revered television newsmagazines, 20/20 was ABC's answer to CBS's 60 Minutes. Though some stories were humorous, light-hearted and sometimes frivolous features, the meat of "20/20's" programming was investigative reporting many times exposing corporate, medical, educational and governmental wrongdoing, incompetence and criminal negligence and reports on news events of the week from (often) different angles than was seen on the nightly news. Though most of the reports proved to be factual, some were heralded as sensationalist; others led to allegations of libel while at least one story later proved to be an embarrassing hoax. The show's current co-anchors are John Stossel and Elizabeth Vargas.moreless

    World News Tonight is a nightly news program that airs on ABC.

    History:

    Harry Reasoner and Howard K. Smith had co-anchored the ABC Evening News from December 1970. In 1975, Reasoner assumed sole anchor responsibilities until his pairing with Barbara Walters, the first female network anchor, in Oct. 1976. Ratings for the nightly news broadcast declined shortly thereafter.

    On July 10, 1978, Roone Arledge, head of ABC's news and sports divisions, launched World News Tonight with a trio of anchors. From Washington D.C., the late Frank Reynolds assumed primary anchor responsiblities, while Peter Jennings (from London) and the late Max Robinson (from Chicago) - the first African-American network news anchor - provided secondary duties.

    From 1983 to 2005, the program as anchored by Peter Jennings. Following Jennings' death, the program was renamed on August 15, 2005, from World News Tonight with Peter Jennings to World News Tonight. Elizabeth Vargas and Bob Woodruff were named as co-anchors. Woodruff was severely wounded in January 2006 while reporting from Iraq. Vargas stepped down for maternity leave in May 2006 and Charles Gibson was named as permanent anchor.moreless

    What Would You Do? is a reality hidden-camera show broadcast on ABC as part of the "Primetime" series. Hosted by John Quinones, the show sets up everday scenarios to gauge the reaction of or test the character of witnesses and passerby's, which are caught using hidden cameras. Some of the situations set up by the show include: a woman who says she has been drinking asking strangers to blow into a breathalyzer to help start her car, an out-of-control soccer coach verbally abusing a child, and a man trying to lure a visibly drunken woman out of a restaurant and back to his house. Many people ignore the situation and mind their own business. Others survey the situation and step in when they feel things have gone too far. Some even step in immediately to make their voices heard. The main question is: when faced with an ethical dilemma, would you do the right thing?moreless

    Welcome to the PrimeTime Live guide at TV.com. Today's headlines come together on Thursday evenings with hard hitting investigative reports and undercover reporting that has, over the years, made a difference. Primetime, an American news magazine show on the ABC network, began August 10, 1989 with Sam Donaldson and Diane Sawyer. The early name for this show was actually "Primetime Live", but that changed when Sam Donaldson left, was replaced by Charles Gibson and was then called "Primetime Thursday". When the 2004-05 season began, ABC again reinvented this series with Chris Cuomo, Cynthia McFadden and John Quinones replacing Charles Gibson. Diane Sawyer has been the only regular anchor throughout this long-run series. On July 2005, the name was again altered to be simply, "Primetime", although some references have slipped through still calling it "Primetime Live". Interviews, human interest features and events that touch our lives are found here with people we've come to trust. Investigative reporting includes reports on insurance scams, bogus and dangerous botox injections, examination of how Iraq war veterans return home to lives of poverty. Other stories included Charles Gibson's report on the efforts to separate conjoined Virginia twins. Also hard hitting, Quiones' looked at the spiritual healer called "John of God," who has attracted millions of desperate victims and Sawyer's telling report from behind bars in a women's maximum security prison. Plus, of course, current events that have yet to happen.moreless

    When a sheriff's squad rolls out each day and the deputies begin their shifts, they call in to dispatch, "10-8… We are now in service." 10-8 explores the LA Sheriffs from the front lines – the patrol car – in the course of the officers' shifts, which can range from the mundane to the dangerous, and everything in between. Rico Amonte was brought out to LA by his older brother Angelo, a detective in the LAPD Robbery/Homicide Division. He is now in his first year, learning to become a professional police officer, and it's up to Senior Deputy Barnes to teach him the ropes. Their vastly different backgrounds give them opposing points of view on how to police the streets. Amonte's irreverent style can get the job done, but usually not in the way Barnes would call standard procedure. The other training officers are Senior Deputy Matt Jablonski and Senior Deputy Ryan Layne. Jablonski is partnered with Trainee Gabriella Lopez, a young Latina from East LA. Layne's partner is Trainee Chase Williams, a recent law school grad eager to acquire street experience before he becomes a D.A. Captain Otis Briggs fights to keep his station running smoothly and by the book. In Los Angeles County, which has the largest sheriff's jurisdiction in the country, it's a daunting task.

    ABC
    Primetime: Family Secrets is a sub-series of the popular newsmagazine show, Primetime, on ABC. This section of the show focuses on shocking family secrets, going behind closed doors to look at such private, taboo issues as child abuse and teenage pregnancy. The reporters take a look at why, and how, these topics are kept so quiet, as well as what happens when the truth finally comes out. The show is interesting and thought-provoking, shining light on uncomfortable moments. For example, what happens when circumstances dictate that a divorced couple must continue living together? Or what happens to family dynamics when a man becomes a "woman" and how does he/she explain the gender change to his/her sons? For a bit of celebrity family dish, Joe Jackson steps in to voice his suspicions over foul play in his son's death and Jon Gosselin talks about tabloids and his new girlfriend. Tune into Primetime: Family Secrets for the kind of real-life drama that proves that life can sometimes outdo even the most outrageous soap opera storylines.moreless

    Primetime: Crime is an american real crime television show on the ABC network. It began in 1989 with the original title of 'Primetime Live' with the hosts Sam Donaldson and Diane Sawyer. Early episodes featured a live audience allowing interaction. This created many technical difficulties and timing issues so the live audience was eventually removed from the show. As the show went on it grew to incorporate many hidden camera investigations. This has occasionally back-fired such as when 'Food Lion' sued the show for trespass and breach of loyalty. In 1998 the show was cancelled and combined it into '20/20.' It was programmed to compete with 'Dateline' on NBC. However in 2000 it was relaunched, becoming 'Primetime Thursday' with Charles Gibson. This lasted until 2004 when it was once again called 'Primetime Live.' From 2006 on it stopped being a weekly show and started airing in the summer as well as being used as filler programing during the 10 pm time slot. Current formats include 'Primetime: What would you do?' 'Primetime: Medical Mysteries,' 'Primetime: The Outsiders,' 'Primetime: Family Secrets,' and 'Primetime: Crime.'moreless

    Primetime: The Outsiders is a sub-series of the popular newsmagazine show, Primetime, on ABC. This section of the show focuses on a variety of people who walk to the beat of their own drums. Extremists of all sorts, from religious extremists to over-the-top animal fanatics, are featured on the show, which examines unusual lifestyles in an attempt to help the common viewer understand such unpopular life choices better. Primetime: The Outsiders finds nothing too strange and no choice too taboo to report about, whether it is the seventy-year-old retired science teacher who now lives in the wild with bears or the people who fall in love with their close family members—and I do not mean the adorable ‘I love you, bro’ kind of way. Even after watching the show, it is quite likely that one will not quite understand why these people do what they do or think what they think. The look that Primetime: The Outsiders offers into their lives, however, is fascinating and most certainly worth checking out.moreless
