What is going on with "Dateline"?

When did "Dateline" morph into Mystery of the Week? I know NBC is facing tough times these days but it wasn't that long ago that we could count on "Dateline" to provide good investigative reports.

Now, it seems that since we're in summer, we keep seeing reruns of Mysteries of the Week. It usually goes down like this: Someone is killed. The police investigate. Something doesn't seem right. Commerical break. Ann Curry comes back to recap what we've seen and then we rejoin the story. More details revealed, then the case is taken to court and the outcome is pretty much what we expected. The end.


I know tonight folks are probably glued to their sets to see the ending of "The Sopranos" but that's one show I never really could get into. I don't know why because the few episodes I did see, I thought I might like. Could someone let me know how it ends for pop culture purposes?
