Good Night America


Good Night America was hosted by Geraldo Rivera from 1974 through 1977. The show gained notoriety for its excellent, and sometimes dangerous investigations. Hugh Hefner (Good Night America 4), Roy Scheider from Jaws (Good Night America 20), daredevil Evel Knievel (Good Night America 7) were just some of the interviews that had millions of americans tuning in. Bringing outlaw biker gang Hells Angels members on-set (Good Night America 11) was just the beginning. Despite purported threats of major fines, lawsuits and far worse, Geraldo was the first to air the original Zapruder film on Good Night America 15 in 1975. This footage was used in the investigations and to prove or disprove the conspiracy theories surrounding President John F. Kennedy's assasination. News programs in the format of Good Night America grew more and more rare as time went on.
