When Dateline NBC returns for its 20th season this Friday, it will have a new lead anchor: Lester Holt, previously a Dateline correspondent. As NBC announced today in a press release, Holt — an NBC News fixture who also anchors the weekend editions of NBC Nightly News and Today — replaces Ann Curry, who has already taken over for Meredith Vieira as co-host of Today. The news of Holt’s promotion comes at an evolving moment for NBC News, which recently announced the creation of an original newsmagazine, Rock Center with Brian Williams. Dateline has continued to garner solid ratings on Friday, a night when “solid ratings” earn instant grade inflation to “spectacular.”

    Hosting this show is SOOOO difficult. Remember that one time where Ann Curry was on Dateline for about 15 seconds total – and then came back to wish us good night? The misery.

    Does Lester Holt ever get a day off? He is the hardest working man in the news.

    Wasn’t the guy from To Catch a Predator supposed to get the job before his affair became public. Rather watch Holt anytime.

    Fantastic issues altogether, you just received a new reader. What may you suggest about your post that you made some days in the past? Any certain?
