HLN will squeeze every last ounce out of the Casey Anthony story this weekend.
As Anthony is set to be released from jail Sunday, the network is planning several hours of special coverage.
Saturday night at 11pmET, the network airs the 2-hour “Justice for Caylee: A Nancy Grace Special,” then the 3-hour “Nancy Grace: Casey Anthony on Trial” followed by a repeat of the 11pm special. That’s 7 overnight hours of Casey Anthony coverage.
Then on Sunday, HLN airs a live “Special Report” at NoonET, followed by four more hours of the show, much of it with Casey Anthony news. That’s followed by the 3-hour recap of the trial at 5pmET and Grace’s special at 9pmET…. and it continues, but you get the idea.
The Anthony story has given HLN record ratings. Last week, it was the 7th most-watched network on all of cable.
