Nightline

Show Summary

The genesis of Nightline occurred after Iranian fundamentalists seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran on November 4, 1979. With several Americans taken hostage, ABC News president Roone Arledge conquered the airspace after affiliates' late news for a daily report called America Held Hostage. Before that crisis was seven months old, Arledge renamed the program Nightline, a fixture on ABC ever since, devoting itself to a single story each night.

    • Nightline Show.

      This is a late news daily report devoted to single story each night.
    • Fresh unpredictable fast paced thorough stories from all over. Its pop candy without the jolt hangover.

      Nightline doesnt seem to falsely cater to young or midlife. They cover whats big and cheesy!-- always getting to the real real motivation within people. Terry Moran's show on his father was heartfelt without manipulation. I dont know how they accomplish such excellent stories, but the new production staff makes every show a worthwhile, fascinating and UNPREDICTABLE ride. I am not so happy that there isnt a bit more attn to such a highly rated show in this forum. Give it a shot... stay connected in an intelligent and fun ride on NIGHTLINE.

      I am glad that the show is getting much better

      Though it will take time to get used to

      Not having the origial host Ted Koppel there

      ABC has done a great job of putting three hosts

      From their own point of view

      Which I love the more instead of just one person

      Glad that they have kept Chris Bury and John Donvan, the two best Nightline correspondents

      Love the show and it is much better than

      Leno & Letterman combined IMHO

      Keep up the good work ABC News!moreless
