On my computer, I watch both “48 Hours” and “Dateline.” They are both basically murder/mystery shows. I think “48 Hours” is better than “Dateline”—that is unless Keith Morrison is the correspondent. I’m a fan of his.
One of the reasons why I think “48 Hours” is better is because the correspondents themselves tell the complete story. In the old days with this show, there was a host (remember Dan Rather doing it?), but the producers who make the show have figured out that a host isn’t really needed.
Now I have nothing against Lester Holt, the host of “Dateline,” but why the hell is he needed? Just let the correspondents tell the story from beginning to end.
Hey NBC, Lester Holt is a talented guy. Just give him something else to do.
