Friday and Sunday night Dateline episodes not enough for you? You’re in luck! Starting March 8, NBC‘s Dateline is adding two-hour “Saturday Night Mysteries,” perhaps hoping to rival CBS’ 48 Hours mystery programming on Saturdays.
As he is on the other Dateline installments, Lester Holt will be the primary anchor of “Saturday Night Mysteries,” which will air at 8pm ET. The first installment on March 8 is called “Miles From Nowhere.” In the California mountains, a young father called 911 to report that he had been in a shoot-out with a car full of strangers. With one man dead and two others injured, authorities wondered if this was self-defense or something else. Keith Morrison reports in this repeat episode.
Dateline Saturday Night Mysteries debuts March 8 at 8pm ET on NBC.
Regularly scheduled Dateline timeslots of Fridays at 8pm ET and Sundays at 7pm ET remain.
