  • CNN’s Don Lemon will anchor a special program tonight at 7 PM, called “The N Word.” The special will take the recent Paula Deen controversy and the George Zimemrman trial, and use them as a starting point for discussing and debating the word in question. Erin Burnett is on vacation.

  • Ann Curry’s primetime special on Friday delivered for NBC. It was number one in both adults 25-54 and adults 18-49, and behind only fellow NBC News program “Dateline” in total viewers. More here.

  • CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is clearly becoming Hollywood’s go-to anchor for feature films. Following his star-turn performance in “Skyfall,” Blitzer will play himself in an upcoming HBO movie “Clear History.” Watch the trailer after the jump.
