NBC News Goes ‘On Assignment’ to Launch New Newsmagazine

6 May 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Keith Morrison appears on NBC this Sunday, he will be talking about the stuff viewers have come to expect of him – matters of life and death. But he won’t be chasing the perpetrator in a whodunnit, as he has while examining stories of murder and true crime on the network’s venerable “Dateline.”

NBC News is hoping the familiarity its audience has with its correspondents will allow the network to launch something very different: “On Assignment,” a six-episode newsmagazine that relies more heavily on stories of adventure and innovation than the so-called “murder porn” that viewers have come to expect from “Dateline,” “48 Hours” and other broadcast-network newsmagazines these days.

Ratings: ABC’s ’20/20′ Special ‘Prince: Death of a Legend’ Tops Friday in Demo

23 April 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite facing a competing NBC news special on the death of pop superstar Prince, ABC’s “20/20” special “Prince: Death of a Legend” stood as Friday’s top draw in key demos.

In Nielsen’s preliminary national estimates, “20/20” (1.3 rating/5 share in adults 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall) shot up 30% (0.3) week to week in 18-49, winning its hour over NBC’s “Dateline” special “Prince: Life & Death of an Icon” (0.9/4 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall), which was down slightly from last week. It was Friday’s No. 1 program in both 18-49 and the key news demo of adults 25-54 (1.8/6)

CBS was competitive in the demos (0.9/3 in 18-49, 1.3/4 in 25-54) and led the 10 o’clock hour hour in total viewers (7.6 million) with a repeat of “Blue Bloods.”

The ABC special, anchored by Elizabeth Vargas, featured reporting from Dan Harris from Prince’s home in Minneapolis, Chris Connelly in Los Angeles and Deborah Roberts in New York. »
