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.

Nancy Grace Lands Daytime Talk Show: Will She Fill the Oprah Void?

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Dec 3rd 2009 1:34PM
Get ready for a little justice in your afternoons.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Nancy Grace is getting her own day time talk show, set to debut in Fall 2010.

'Swift Justice With Nancy Grace' will appear on 48 of the top 50 markets across the country, which isn't surprising, as her popularity has risen over the last few years, making her a household name. But what's odd about this show is that her format eschews the normal, hourlong format; instead, it will air as back-to-back half-hour episodes.

Grace will continue to host her legal show on HLN, which currently airs nightly at 8PM. But the question remains: Will she serve as a decent enough replacement for what we'll now dub the pending "Oprah-void?"

Now we might have Nancy Grace yelling at us in the daytime too

Nancy GraceDo you think we need another court show? What if I told you that this new court show was going to be hosted by Nancy Grace.

Yup, Grace is planning to star in her own daily syndicated court show next year. And it has actually gone past just a "talks" stage because Grace has reportedly filmed a presentation to show CBS Television Distribution. The name of the show (right now anyway, this could change) is Swift Justice with Nancy Grace. I guess The Biggest Loser was already taken.
