Primetime Live

Show Summary

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

  • Primetime: Out of Control AIDS in Black America, August 24th,2006. Primetime thanking you for airing this show and shedding light on an otherwise silent yet deadly issue.

    I appreciate and thank Primetime for airing this special on AIDS in Black America. This issue is dire and needs to be addressed and brought to light. It’s very alarming and disheartening to hear that our black women are being infected with this disease via heterosexual relationships. The only way to solve this problem is to educate our communities. Pastors and leaders alike should attack this crisis head on and promote abstinence, safe sex and/or monogamy within marriages. I am very surprised and disappointed that TD Jakes refused to talk about AIDS at a conference in Atlanta and I disagree with his statement about the Bible not providing answers. HIV/AIDS is a product of our choices, it is a product of the condition of our hearts, it is a product of this Country’s mindset and Christianity targets those very things, so to say that the Bible does not gives us any answers is just nuts and extremely outlandish.. Pastors have no excuse and they shouldn’t have to feel their way through this issue. The HIV/AIDS crisis has now become a moral issue, in that, heterosexual married men are sleeping with other men on the down low, thereby infecting black women. It is the Church’s sole responsibility to address, confront and resolve moral dysfunctions within our society. Furthermore, the word of God provides an answer for every single moral issue that plagues this Country. It is extremely unfortunate and appalling that pastors have chosen to take the easy way out; as the HIV/AIDS crisis continues to permeate African American Culture; pastors should make this crisis a point of focus until the condition augments. To move forward progressively Pastors and leaders across the nation should not be afraid to touch or address this crisis. This epidemic is adversely affecting the African American community and we all should band together to affect positive change. Christine Hollingsworth
