20/20 is a news magazine broadcast on ABC since June 6, 1978. The show was created by Roone Arledge. The original hosts were veteran journalists Harold Hayes and Robert Hughes. That first program was written off as a colossal failure by critics, and Hayes and Hughes were replaced the following week by former game show and Today host Hugh Downs. Downs was later joined in 1984 by Barbara Walters. Downs retired in 1999 and Walters became the solo news anchor until 2002 when John Miller was hired to be permanent co-host of the series. Miller left a year later in January 2003 and was replaced by John Stossel in May, 2003. Walters left the co-anchor position in 2004 to be replaced by Elizabeth Vargas. For a time from 1998-2000, ABC News combined 20/20 and Primetime Live to complete better with Dateline NBC. In 2000 ABC News returned the news magazines to the original 20/20. The distinctive theme music to 20/20 was written by Robert Arnold Israel and based upon ABC's World News Tonight theme written by Lillian Scheinert.

I watched this show last night and must say. The poor woman that was attacked by the mountain lion, you are very lucky you survived, however, what were you doing there to begin with? I believe that I saw a sign that warned that it was cougar (as we call them in Canada) country. Why as humans do we continue to push the animals to their limits and then are amazed when they attack us? To the poor man that the cougar killed first and partially devoured, do not ever ride, ski, run, boat, or jog alone. I believe we learn these lessons very young. I believe we must ride our bikes, jog, walk where it is safe. Not only are there four legged predators today but there are also alot of two legged predators that we have no control over. Read more
