Why do they think they are getting the numbers that they are on streaming services? BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE THE ORIGINAL FORMAT. If it isn't broke, don't fix it. Minor adjustments for a new era are to be expected, but Unsolved Mysteries without a host? Check please.
I agree and I was hoping for more of the original format -- creepy and with a host.

I have the feeling now that the new episodes will be similar to the new UM episodes they did for a while on YouTube (for example, Maura Murray). In those they have the surviving relatives/friends narrate the case as scenes are played. They aren't bad but they definitely don't have the same look and feel of classic UM. It's more of that story format which isn't bad but it is very different than what we all grew up with.
