New Nightline: A Critical Review

The Hollywood Reporter’s Barry Garron reviews night one of Nightline, and he pulls a few punches:

> Cynthia McFadden “pledged Monday night…’to do our best to build on the proud journalistic tradition of this program.’ But based on the first show, ‘our best’ is not yet good enough.”

> “Based on the opening segment, the quality of the reporting has taken a hit. The first piece was part of a new series called ‘Iraq: Stay In or Pull Out?’ but it never came close to addressing the question…”

Garron concludes: “Perhaps subsequent episodes of the new Nightline will challenge and engage viewers intent on finding out more about the crucial issues of our time. If not, it will be that much easier for ABC network brass to justify moving Jimmy Kimmel up a half-hour.”
