January 31, 2017: Tonight On MetroFocus

February 01, 2017 at 5:51 am

Tonight, we continue our ongoing investigative series Corruption Watch, as U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara puts Mayor Bill de Blasio in the hot seat without immunity. Will he uncover a City Hall quid pro quo, or will he finally let de Blasio off the hook? We break down what’s on the docket.

Next, as the country debates travel bans and safety, PBS FRONTLINE gives us an inside look at the fight against ISIS, and the terror we’re trying to keep at bay. We’re at the center of the conflict in the battle for Mosul.

Finally, when you think of the subway, you think of New York City, right? Wrong. Tonight, PBS American Experience uncovers The Race Underground, as we travel to the city that beat us to this transit triumph.
