Primetime: Crime

Show Summary

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
