LOS ANGELES (TheWrap) – Better start making the popcorn now, because this weekend you’ll have the opportunity to watch Nancy Grace’s head nearly explode all over again. And again. And again.
Capitalizing on the ratings bonanza that Grace’s coverage of the Casey Anthony’s trial brought to it, CNN sister channel HLN will be broadcasting a virtual orgy of Nancy Grace-Casey Anthony programing, consisting of no fewer than 26 hours of televised outrage.
In between the occasional episodes of “Dr. Drew” and “Weekend Express,” viewers will be treated to a virtually nonstop barrage of Grace hissing, clucking, screaming and venting about the trial of the week.
Though much of the programing consists of repeats from this past week, the sheer quantity of material can’t be argued with: There’s “Justice for Caylee: A Nancy Grace Special.” And the three-hour recap “Nancy Grace: Casey Anthony on Trial,” which will be aired no fewer than four times over the weekend.
Sunday’s schedule alone will deliver 16 anger-packed hours, courtesy of cable television’s shrillest finger-wager pontificating about the trial.
