New Nightline: “The Last Thing One Would Want To See Before Falling Asleep”

Negative Nightline review #2 comes from David Zurawik in the Baltimore Sun.

He gives James Goldston credit for a “polished-looking production” and a “smooth launch with no major glitches or serious mistakes.”

But then he calls the show ” a garish-looking TV creature more reminiscent of the carnival midway than the pioneering broadcast whose name it bears. A stylistic marriage of prime-time newsmagazines and MTV, this hyped-up, neon-lit news program seems like the last thing one would want to see before trying to fall asleep.”

At the end, he notes that “a new program can’t be judged on just one segment.” But after night one, “one thing was perfectly clear: The balance between substance and style at Nightline had been decisively – and sadly – reversed in the last week.”
