Nationally syndicated news magazine Crime Watch Daily has been renewed for Season 2, with Chris Hansen joining as host, premiering September 12, 2016.
The series will be renamed Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen, LA Times confirms:
As part of the deal, announced Monday by Telepictures Productions and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, Hansen brings along a new series of “Predator”-style investigations, in which he uses hidden cameras to ensnare people who use the Internet for criminal activity.
