Jennifer Ford, Casey Anthony Trial Juror, 'Primetime Nightline'With the prosecution failing to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, the jury in the Casey Anthony presented the most controversial "Not guilty" verdict since O.J. Simpson's trial.

On 'Primetime Nightline: Casey Anthony: Not Guilty' (Wed., 10PM ET on ABC), they had one of the jurors, Jennifer Ford, in the trial on to talk about the verdict, and her feelings about the case.

When asked why they declared Anthony not guilty, she stated, "There wasn't enough evidence. If you're going to charge someone with murder, don't you have to know how they killed someone, or why ... where/when/why/how? Those are important questions that were not answered."

But a verdict in a court of law on very specific charges is one thing. When asked if she thought Anthony might have killed her daughter, Ford replied, "I feel like she had something to do with it." But she wouldn't speculate further.

Casey Anthony prosecutor Jeff Ashton on 'The View'Retiring prosecutor Jeff Ashton, one of the principle figures in the Casey Anthony trial, visited 'The View' Wednesday (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) and reflected on yesterday's not-guilty verdict that shocked the nation. Ashton revealed he was troubled by the frenzy surrounding the trial, which he likened to the atmosphere of a sporting event, and said that while the acquittal was disappointing, it has not shaken his faith in the justice system.

Ashton understood why the case struck such a nerve with the public. "I think when people see someone that they believe has so gone away from [a mother's love for her child], it just outrages them," he said. But the outrage got to an unhealthy level, he said. "It actually got weird at times, to where it was almost like a sporting event and people were on a team," he said. "There were times when I wanted to look at them and just say, 'Everybody calm down. It's not a sporting event. It's more than that.'"

Nancy Grace and Dan Abrams discuss the Casey Anthony verdict on 'Good Morning America'Nancy Grace has spent the last several weeks railing against Casey Anthony, and the last twenty-four hours against the "not guilty" verdict in her trial. Appearing Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Grace was more in control, discussing with Dan Abrams how testimony from Anthony's family influenced that case and what Casey's life might be like now that she is an infamous celebrity.

Abrams and Grace agreed that Anthony's family had been persuasive to the jury, especially Casey Anthony's mother Cindy's emotional testimony. "I think that they [the family] believed a conviction was coming down, but not a death penalty, if they could stop it," said Grace.

Nancy Grace's Coverage of the Casey Anthony Trial Posts Record Ratings for HLN

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 6th 2011 6:30AM
Nancy GraceNancy Grace's outraged disbelief at the verdicts in the Casey Anthony trial led many to question if her head would, actually, explode on-air. It did not. However, her stunned reaction -- "somewhere out there, the devil is dancing tonight" -- did set the Twitterverse afire.

Grace has been covering the story on her eponymous primetime show since two-year old Caylee Anthony was reported missing in mid-2008.

Her intense, often controversial, scrutiny of the case produced record ratings for CNN's Headline News and may also have influenced the other TV networks' coverage as they acted in the wake of her escalating ratings.

'The Wrap' reports that Grace's single-minded pursuit of the "truth" about Caylee Anthony's death put HLN in second place during June, the 29-year-old channel's best ratings month ever. And it also helped the network challenge Fox News in the coveted adults aged 25-54 demographic during primetime.

Judge Judy and Judge Belvin Perry
The ink is barely dry on the jury's verdict, but already speculation's growing as to what happens next for the main players in the Casey Anthony trial. Many pundits agree that Judge Belvin Perry may have a second career waiting for him as a television judge. Could he be the next Judge Judy?

Fox news commentator Joey Jackson said, "I can certainly see him becoming the next big TV judge."

After months of court proceedings, on Tuesday, Perry confirmed the jury's verdict that Anthony was not guilty of first degree murder -- a verdict that visibly outraged the celebrity Twitter community. But Perry's shocking ruling, although an unpopular one, may only further catapult him into the celebrity judge world. Guilty or not guilty, Perry stuck to his guns throughout the trial, keeping attorneys in line and holding them accountable, dealing with even the craziest aspects of the case with an even temperament and being patient, yet rigid, in moving the case forward.

Reactions to the Casey Anthony 'not guilty' verdict on 'The Talk'It was a day of mixed emotions Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), as the panel reacted live to the verdict from the Casey Anthony trial. The room was filled with nervous anticipation in the moments before the verdict, as Julie Chen made the executive decision to stay with the show instead of breaking to coverage, joking that she would discuss any fallout from the decision with her husband, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves, at the dinner table.

But the breezy tone quickly changed as she reported the shocking verdict -- the studio audience gasped and then grew quiet as the "not guilty" verdicts came in on the separate murder, manslaughter and child abuse charges. Leah Remini, bewildered, threw her hands up in the air and almost walked off the set. Chen herself appeared close to breaking down at one point, leaving Holly Robinson Peete to finish reading the remaining counts.
