Hansen vs. Predator

If you’ve yet to find a replacement in your life for watching Chris Hansen bust alleged pedophiles on “Dateline: To Catch a Predator,” he has just the solution you’ll need.
Hansen has launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce a new version of the show — now called “Hansen vs. Predator” — which will be released online. He’s asking for $75,000 to reach the campaign’s initial goal, but admits it’ll take $500,000 to complete the first of two planned investigations.
As rewards for donating to the cause, backers are being offered a variety of perks — from signed photos of Hansen to the host recording your outgoing voicemail message. Though, as Jimmy Kimmel points out below in a bit from “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” it “would be cool if anyone still used voicemail.”

“To Catch a Predator” initially ran on NBC between 2004 and 2007. It was canceled not long after ABC’s “20/20” aired an investigation into the show and the suicide of Louis Conradt, Jr. — an assistant district attorney in Texas who was featured during one of the sting operations.
