A Dateline SPECIAL: THE LITTLE PRINCE AIRS TONIGHT AT 10P ET /9P CENTRAL

NEW YORK, NY – July 22, 2013 – NBC’s “Dateline” will air A Dateline Special: The Little Prince tonight at 10p ET/9p Central.  Prince William and Kate Middleton have welcomed the royal baby into the world, the third in line to the British monarch. Hosted by Natalie Morales, Dateline’s The Little Prince will provide viewers with an intimate look inside the lives of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as this modern royal family brings their son home.  Hear from friends, learn the latest details about the couple’s future plans as a family, and see rare childhood images of William and Harry.

 

The primetime special is part of NBC News’ coverage of the royal birth which has included reports from Natalie Morales and Dr. Nancy Snyderman on “TODAY,” Chris Jansing, Jim Maceda and Kate Snow on “NBC Nightly News,” and London-based Correspondents Martin Fletcher, Ben Fogle, Michelle Kosinski and Keir Simmons.

    The Estrogen Broadcasting Company pre-empting “Mistresses” for a special “20/20″ makes sense, but what are you thinking NBC???? All this hubbub about a couple of Brits is overkill!

  • E.S.

    NBC,

    How about chucking that Tuesday encore of “Hollywood Game Night” (which isn’t appropriate for “family hour” to begin with, given all the drinking) for a special?

  • BigBrotherFan

    Does anyone care? I been hearing about this crap all week am I’m surprised ABC isn’t rushing out a 20/20 special on it!

  • Jacobo

    “Estrogen Broadcasting Network..” LOL

  • Skylar James

    Couldn’t give a crap about the royal baby, or what boring name he’ll get.

  • HQ

    Wow, who gives a hoot about the baby here? CBS is the only network with some sense as Fox was never going to interrupt its programming for it; they don’t even have a news magazine show.

  • alexjones

    I couldn’t care less about the stupid royal baby, and I live in britain!

  • Steve

    Who gives a crap about the Royal baby

  • klsdfjkdjlfj

    OKOK SO Y EXACTLY IS SIBERIA NOT ON TONIGHT!?!?!?!?!?!?! IVE BEEN WAITING ALL WEEEEEEEK AGHHHH I DONT WANNA SEE THISSSS

  • Steve

    I hate friggin Matt Lauer, and Natalie Morales as well for that matter. This channel needs to pull their head out of their back sides. Nobody cares about this baby!

  • Leoben Conoy

    so.completely.annoyed.

  • mixxy

    I don’t appreciate a show I was planning on watching being postponed for an impromptu special on the Royal Grandson. We aren’t even in England. Are they the Royalty of the whole world or something?? …and are the rest of us the peasants of the whole world??? Give me a break !!!

  • ToXiX

    I don’t watch Siberia but for the sake of the fans I hope this bullshyt baby special gets NBC a 0.5

  • Hardline_Pro

    Wow NBC, you’ve hit a new low.

  • TV Viewer

    ABC will air their own Royal Baby special on Tues. July 23, (preempting cancelled Body of Proof). Considering that NBC’s Dateline got a 1.0; I suppose the fact that it is cheap to make, they have to air Something in that time slot, and there are some people who will watch it, is why there are at least two of these one hour Royal Infant Prince programs airing in the USA.
