Trivia

In 1998, ABC News combined "Primetime Live" with 20/20 (1978) to compete with Dateline NBC (1992) which aired four days a week at the time. The new editions were called "20/20 Monday", "20/20 Wednesday", "20/20 Friday", "20/20 Sunday", and _"20/20 Downtown" (2000)_. In 2000, ABC News returned "20/20" and "Primetime" to their original forms but kept "20/20 Downtown" as a spin-off. See more »

Quite an episode
25 July 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I think this show is quite interesting and I have been watching Primetime for quite somewhile. I watched the Primetime episode about the young adult film stars that aired 1/23/03. I thought Belladonna was both sad and quite pathetic. If Belladonna(I) wants to leave, leave and never look back. The porn industry is quite a waste and diseased. Who would want to work in a line of work that can give you AIDS? If you want to pay for college or whatever, ask your parents or get financial assistance.
