'To Catch a Predator' host Chris Hansen dumped by NBC after 20 years
New York Post ^ | August 5, 2013

No more catching predators for Chris Hansen.

The host of the controversial reality show "To Catch a Predator" got the boot after NBC stated it would not renew his contract after 20 years on air, according to a news report.

Coincidently, the announcement comes just weeks after photos surfaced of Hansen, a married father-of-two, smooching his ex-mistress Kristyn Caddell.

“Chris has been a valued member of the team and we thank him for his many contributions to Dateline and NBC News over the last 20 years,” NBC told TV Guide Magazine. “We wish him the very best.”

NBC used Hansen to question Republican presidential candidates during a televised debate some years ago....

At least a catch phrase...”Why don’t you have a tweet over here...”

A lot of the cases were thrown out as entrapment from what I heard. Some times you could almost feel sorry for them. Still, there’s some part of me that enjoyed seeing the blood drain from the faces of pedophiles upon seeing Chris Hanson make a surprise appearance.

If he covered “Man’s Country” club in Obama’s Chicago and reported on that homosexual scandal, he would have had ratings.

He probably engaged in some detestable practice....maybe he was caught reading the Bible, attending a Bible-believing house of worship, or refusing to sign a “congratulations” card for two homosexuals’ union.

I found that show entertaining years ago when it first started, but now I find it pretty boring.

No, it is Brian Williams. His daughter is the only fairly attractive woman on the show.

“Chris Hansen was fired because he was caught with a woman not his wife!!!!?”

I thought that was a requirement in the media these days.

No, he was caught cheating on his wife.

He should have known his affair was about to end when his mistress called out from another room, "Have some of that sweet tea on the table and I'll be right out."

Thanks to Chris Hansen, I learned how much pedophiles love homemade cookies and lemonade. Seemed like every show they were offered some while waiting on the girl to come out.
