Please turn down the loud music!!! It’s too loud and you can’t hear the talking!!!
So happy Dateline has been renewed!
Love the show! Hope it stays on for a long time.
Absolutely essential TV. So much danger out there that young people must be aware of. Dateline does a riveting job of educating us on what to look out for. Thank you, NBC, for this fabulous public service.
Dateline is “must-see” TV. What a great way to see what dangers lurk out there–especially for young people, who might be untutored in the ways of the personality-disordered. Thank you, NBC, for providing this fantastic and riveting public service.
I’m glad its renewed….
I have one big complaint the background music is so loud you can’t hear what the host is saying…please fix it we love the show
Please do not cancel Dateline. I love watching this show and have for years. Please continue with it.
I love Dateline and can’t imagine it no longer being televised on Friday nights. However, I wish that it would not post the episode is new when in fact it is not. I also wish they would televise more NEW episodes it appears that Keith Morrison is the main preson that brings most of the new episodes.

I am an avid watcher of Dateline. It is a terrific show and it is based on true facts . PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL DATELINE.
Dateine is superb, true facts and lessons to be learned. Real crime is out there and too many people are not cautious enough. I would love to see more shows that are newer stories or ones that haven’t already aired. There are surely enough criminal cases in this world to do so! One of my favorites!!
NCIS LA is best because there is more action. Seeks always makes you laugh. I am also furious that Hawaii 5.0 was canceled. The cast was fenominal. I won’t watch McGyver or Magnum P.I……
Please do NOT CANCEL DATELINE!! I really enjoy this show, especially because it’s true. And Keith Morrison is the BEST!
I love watching Manifest every week
I LOVE DATELINE. I have seen every single show. I need to see some new ones. I know I’m not the only one out there that loves this show. Apparently Melania Trump watches it too.:)
I have not missed a single episode of Dateline for as long as it has been on! Absolutely they must renew it.
Love Dateline Renew
