In the meantime, look forward to a tidal wave of trialmania as the jury begins deliberations. After final arguments, Rivera Live, the O.J.-obsessed CNBC program, will expand to 90 minutes for at least two nights so that Gerry Spence (who has also scored his own CNBC show in the O.J. wake) and a panel of prosecutors can retry the case (hopefully without all those time-consuming sidebars). On the day of the verdict, all the networks will preempt regular programming for saturation coverage (and soaring ad rates). Crime itself may not pay, but the TV rights are obviously worth a fortune.
