> On FNC, Shep will be all over the story at 7pm. Bill O’Reilly will be live at 8pm with reaction. Greta is live in Santa Maria at 10pm…

> CNN is touting Larry King Live at 9pm, when “courtroom insiders and legal experts weigh in on the verdict.”

> MSNBC will have a live special with Dan Abrams at 11pm and a live edition of Countdown at midnight. I wonder how this will impact the premiere of The Situation with Tucker Carlson?
