The Big 3 Live at 10

By Chris Ariens Comment

I’ve been trying to think about the last time the news divisions of the big 3 broadcasters have all been live at 10pm (on the east coast), save for an election night or presidential news conference. ABC’s Barbara Walters, who just wrapped up a brief participation in a “20/20” Michael Jackson special is now anchoring their Farrah Fawcett hour. Harry Smith is anchoring CBS’ Jackson special, which includes coverage on Fawcett, while NBC’s Ann Curry is halfway through a 2-hour Dateline special about the lives and deaths of both Jackson and Fawcett.
