On Tuesday, March 2 at 10 p.m., Deborah Roberts will anchor "20/20: Before They Were Famous." The pre-fame special replaces "The Forgotten" for a week -- and on the same night NBC is premiering its much-touted "Parenthood."
It's a logical move however you look at it. While it's doubtful "20/20" will do gangbusters, it could improve on what "The Forgotten" has been averaging coming out of "Lost." ABC clearly sees no reason to give NBC a free pass.
ABC will also air a two hour 20/20 dedicated to The Bachelor on March 15.
