Dateline January 26 2024 Episode Pre-Empted for U.S. Figure Skating Championships

In a scheduling shift, viewers of Dateline NBC will find a change in their regular programming on January 26, 2024. The anticipated episode of Dateline will not air as initially planned. Instead, the U.S. Figure Skating Championships Women’s free skate will take center stage, broadcasting live from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. This event marks Day 2 of the championships, and promises to showcase some of the nation’s finest figure skater.

This week’s Dateline episode on Sunday January 28, 2024, delves into the disappearance and tragic death of 19-year-old Alaska Native woman Sonya Ivanoff. Her vanishing from the small coastal city of Nome, Alaska, sent shockwaves through the community. The investigation took a dramatic turn when a note was discovered in a stolen police vehicle, warning the police to back off, adding a layer of mystery and urgency to the case.

Meanwhile, on January 26, ABC’s 20/20 is set to air a groundbreaking two-hour special featuring Gypsy Rose Blanchard, just a week after her release from prison. The episode, led by co-anchor Deborah Roberts, promises to offer an unprecedented look into the complex and startling life of Gypsy Rose. Her story, involving allegations of chronic illness, abuse, and murder, has captivated the nation.

Deborah Roberts’s interview with Gypsy Rose Blanchard is expected to provide rare insight into her life behind bars, her struggles with her past, and her adjustment to her newfound fame. The episode aims to explore Gypsy Rose’s psychological and emotional journey, transitioning from a life overshadowed by fabricated illness to her current reality.

The 20/20 special will also feature interviews with central figures in Gypsy Rose’s case, such as Lt. Stan Hancock, the lead detective; Sheriff Jim Arnott; Mike Stanfield, Gypsy’s defense attorney; and her father and stepmother, Rod and Kristy Blanchard. Contributions from her neighbor and friend, Aleah Woodmansee, and Dr. Bernardo Flasterstein, a pediatric neurologist who had suspicions of Munchausen by proxy, are set to enrich the narrative. Further depth is added with insights from Dr. Mary Sanders, a Stanford professor and expert on Munchausen by proxy abuse, and EJ Dickson, a Rolling Stone writer who covered the case.
