The weekly NBC program, which covers mysteries, crime and investigative reports is the first newsmagazine series to hit the social media milestone
It turns out Facebookers really love murder mysteries and hidden-camera exposés.
NBC’s flagship news-magazine show “Dateline” has notched over 1 million likes on the social network.
The feat is even more noteworthy when you consider the newsmagazine had only 316,836 likes at the same time last year.
In comparison, CBS’s “60 Minutes” trailed “Dateline” with 771,000 likes and ABC’s “20/20″ had 609,000.

NBC is commemorating their milestone with a Facebook contest, awarding one lucky viewer the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the show in New York City.
Facebook users have until May 19 to post a comment explaining why they deserve a trip to the Big Apple to spend time with the “Dateline” team.
