* In the 10:30 lead-in to local news, "Dateline NBC" delivered a 100 percent margin of victory in the key news demo of adults 25-54 (with a 2.8 rating vs. a 1.4 for ABC's second-place news special).

* The December 28 edition of "Dateline NBC" covered the story of a young Florida mother who was abducted and taken for ransom, only to have three attempts to drop the ransom fail.
