20/20 focuses on investigative journalism. They cover some of the most pressing topics in the world. However, they have also branched out into entertainment topics and popular culture topics, as have most news series. 20/20 also picks up obscure topics and brings them to the forefront of news. Examples include underreported medical conditions and unknown living conditions in various parts of the world -- including the United States.

Most 20/20 episodes include in-depth news stories. However, 20/20 also does even more in-depth special one and two-hour episodes.
