    13 Eerie Things And What "Dateline’s" Lester Holt Thinks About Them


    If you're like me, Demi Lovato, or Jimmy Fallon, Dateline is not just a thrilling, makes-you-jump-out-of-your-seat television show about real-life mysteries — it's a way of life. In my opinion, the only plans that ever matter on a Friday night are watching Dateline on the couch while eating Chipotle in a snuggie (and occasionally crying over an intense episode). So we jumped at the chance to chat with the show's host, Lester Holt, about all things ~mysterious~. Holt stopped by BuzzFeed New York to play an eerie round of word association, and here's what happened.
