It's not the same without Ted
21 December 2006 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

I used to be a huge fan of Nightline in the days with Ted Koppel. Nightline used to give you the information about a current issue in the country, then have a couple of experts debate the issue. I thought that it was very interesting and entertaining. But sadly, today, Nightline is nothing more than another news magazine show, and the stories are mostly boring. They mostly talk about stories that are already all over the news. Sadly, this is exactly what happened when Hugh Downs left 20/20, 20/20 used to be all about consumer investigations and undercover stings, today it's nothing more than a myth busting show beside what's already in the news. Most of these stories are already all over the news, and we don't want to hear them again, we want to hear something that's different and interesting!
