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.

AMC Picks Up Cheri Oteri's Mini-Comedy 'Life Coach'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 16th 2010 8:30PM
AMC has done wonders with dramatic series like 'Mad Men' and 'Breaking Bad' but hasn't really tried to crack the comedy bubble yet.

Their first and biggest attempt to date comes in the form of a "mini-com" called 'Life Coach' starring former 'SNL'-er Cheri Oteri as Liza, a life counselor with some major life control problems of her own. The show serves as both a web series and a buffer between AMC's Monday night movies.

The episodes will feature celebrity appearances including comedians Lewis Black and Kathleen Madigan, CNN talking face Nancy Grace and actor and 'Perfect Strangers' star Mark Linn-Baker.

Here's a first: Nancy Grace doesn't want to be on television

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 26th 2010 8:00PM
Don't get excited. Nancy Grace still wants to be all over television, just not the parts that make her look like a mean, accusatory harpy with a God complex. That still applies to her talk show, but nevertheless...

Her attorneys are trying to get a federal judge to keep cameras from recording her deposition in a wrongful death suit filed against her, or at least keep the videotape from leaving the courthouse and ending up on television. She is being sued by the family of Melinda Duckett, a mother who appeared on her CNN Headline News show in 2006 and got grilled by the host following the disappearance of her 2-year-old son Trenton. Duckett killed herself on the day the interview was scheduled to air.

Attorneys said they want to protect Grace from any undue embarrassment. I'd say they're already too late.

Can Nancy Grace Save Syndication?

by Scott Harris, posted Jan 26th 2010 3:45PM
Nancy GraceWhen television icon and syndication star Oprah Winfrey announced last year that she would be ending her award-winning 'Oprah Winfrey' series in order to focus on her new cable network, fans around the country mourned the loss of the show. But will her departure also signal an end for syndication in general?

That's the big question facing financially strapped affiliates this year as they struggle to fill the programming gap that looms with Winfrey's imminent departure. As revenues fall and syndication costs rise, though, Winfrey's distributor, CBS, is turning to an unlikely source for salvation: Nancy Grace.

According to the NY Times, Grace, a former prosecutor who has become a lightning rod for controversy on her nightly HLN showcase 'Nancy Grace,' will be headlining the new daytime courtroom series 'Swift Justice.' And in order to help position the series as a successor to Winfrey, CBS has taken the unusual step of negotiating unique bartering deals with individual affiliates to secure air time.

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?"

Proof the world is ending: I agree with Nancy Grace

I'll admit it: I watch Jon & Kate Plus Eight. In all of the episodes I've seen, I've never listened to Jon Gosselin speak and thought, "You sir, have missed your vocational calling in the Rocket Sciences," but I also didn't think he was a complete idiot. Recently, my view has changed.

Let's not even get into the wisdom of dating a 22-year-old, or partying on a yacht in France while your wife is back home in Pennsylvania caring for your eight children. The man simply does not know the meaning of the phrase, "quit while you're ahead." To wit: his ridiculous defense on Larry King of his decision to halt production on Jon & Kate as soon as it became Kate Plus Eight, and his Ed Hardy-wearing ass got fired.

Gosselin also thought it would be wise to go on The Insider and square off against caustic defender of "justice," Nancy Grace. In this appearance, he further defends his actions, and claims that all of the decisions he makes are for his kids. Spoiler alert: This does not go well for him.

Should Nick Hogan have been moved to a new jail cell?

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 9th 2008 2:23PM
Nick Bollea HoganThe Hulkster's son, in jail for a driving accident that put his friend in a coma, just got moved last Friday into a new jail cell. He was serving his eight-month prison sentence in solitary confinement after pleading no contest to the three charges: reckless driving, drunk driving, and having tinted windows on his Supra.

In a conversation with his mother, Linda Hogan, Nick (real last name Bollea) described the jail cell as half the size of his bathroom with no windows. According to Nancy Grace, the cell measures 12 X 16. Nick's new digs include a cable television, unlimited phone use, a snack bar, and three other juvenille inmates. According to the Sherrif's office, he was being held in solitary confinement becuase he is seventeen and therefore too young to be with the rest of the criminal population. His lawyers apparently filed a lawsuit against the sheriff's office saying that the decision to keep their client in solitary confinement is a violation of his privacy.

What do you think? Should Nick have stayed in solitary confinement until July 27th, his eighteenth birthday?

Jon Stewart"Indecision '08": It's all about the photo ops, apparently. I fail to see the appeal in that picture of John Edwards shaving an old guy... I hope that doesn't make me (more of) a heartless person.

"Mess O' Potamia Potomac": Senior Military Analyst John Oliver stopped by to elaborate on the "war czar" plan. I hope I wasn't the only one that immediately thought of making some sweet new business cards at the very mention of the title "galactic space fuhrer".

Take Nancy Grace off the air!

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 14th 2006 9:18AM
nancy graceCNN's Nancy Grace, the most heinous woman on television, needs to be unplugged. She is a contemptible being who gets her kicks off of lashing out at people and flat-out accusing them of crimes that are still being investigated. Earlier this week, Grace verbally accosted a woman over the telephone about her two-year old son, who had allegedly been kidnapped. The next day the woman, 21-year old Melinda Duckett, shot and killed herself just hours before her interview was scheduled to air. Apparently, at the end of the interview, Grace pounded the desk and said to the distraught mother, "Where were you? Why aren't you telling us where you were that day?" Grace denies any responsibility, saying, "I do not feel that our show is to blame for what happened to Melinda Duckett. The truth... is not always nice or polite or easy to go down. Sometimes it's harsh, and it hurts." So... once again Nancy has decided that someone is guilty.

We'll never know if uber-bitch Nancy Grace pushed this mother over the edge. And that's not even the issue. The problem here is Nancy Grace believes she can investigate cases better than the actual investigators. Maybe the mother is responsible for her son's disappearance. Is it Nancy Grace's job to get a confession?
