Dateline‘s airing an hour right now called “Messiest Celebrity Meltdowns” complete with VH1-style Best Week Ever F-list commentary (literally, some of the same people) and the classic “what the heck do we use for b-roll?” tactic of zooming in on and panning across still photos.
Who greenlit this fiasco? Who thought TV needed more recycled footage of famous people behaving badly? On Sunday at 7pm. You know, family hour.
Dateline did purport to be news at some point, right?
