Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear / TruthInTelevision: The dangers that TCAP confronted were very much real life fears that are among parent's worst nightmares.


Added DiffLines:

** The majority of predators claim that the meeting they have with Chris is their first meeting, and while technically speaking this cannot be ''proven'' untrue, the circumstances in which they arrived at the decoy houses make this hard to believe.


Added DiffLines:

* DoubleEntendre: One of the more notable predators on the show was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZK7Zx7s0Vg this man]], who got busted ''twice'' in 24 hours (despite having an OhCrap moment after the first meeting, he wasn't deterred from initiating a second). In his second meeting, when he is confronted at the McDonald's he asked the decoy to meet up at, he thrice says immediately upon meeting Chris that he "just came to get something to eat!" A line with a both ironic and harsh double meaning because while the man meant to say that he had only came to get food, his words could be viewed as him getting something to eat (regarding an act of molestation he might have performed on his supposed victim).

The launch of ''Series/RockCenter [[AwesomeMcCoolname with Brian Williams]]'' in November 2011 suggests that NBC knows that ''Dateline'' should never be omnipresent on the main network schedule again.

* GenreSavvy: Some predators will try to search the house for adults, especially camera crews. Of course, they can't be ''[[DownplayedTrope that]]'' genre savvy if they showed up at the house in the first place.

''Dateline'' is still on the air, now anchored by Lester Holt, in a FridayNightDeathSlot (right before the local news), and also airs on Sundays opposite ''Series/SixtyMinutes'' between season of [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague NFL football]]. It has some internal infamy, as CNBC airs ''Series/SixtyMinutes on CNBC'' rather than ''Dateline: Business Edition'' because of the show's lack of any non-tabloid coverage... Though there ''being'' a ''Dateline: Business Edition'' says something.
