            I watched him searching diligently for the killer in Jamaica in 2004. He spent a week scoping out the resort pool, bars, restaurants and clubs...
            Wisely leaving no stone unturned . . .

              In the last week or so, Ed McMahon, Farah Fawcett and Billie Mays have passed away and there certainly has been no interruptions on TV for their deaths.

              So I guess the media just isn't going to focus on the death of a high profile person all that much.

                  Who's death , outside of Heads of State or Osama bin Laden, might cause the four major network to interrupt regularly schedule programming?

                    This month is the 40th anniversary of man first landing on the moon. That is one of only two times (the JFK assasination being the other) that I recall EVERY television station interrupting their regular programming,

                      How many stations were there 40-45 years ago?

                      Not many.

                      Whose death occurred during the moon landing?

                      The original question only inquired about the major networks with Fox, I believe, now being considered a 4th.

                        I recall the assasinations of RFK and MLK being covered pretty thoroughly.

                          Cronkite is apparently close - not doing well

                            When we arrived to USA in December of 1968, the biggest impression on me was the CBS evening news with Cronkite.

                              We were spoiled with seven television stations in the NY-NJ area in the 1960's: CBS, NBC, ABC, WNEW (Metromedia), WPIX (Tribune), WOR (RKO), and WNET (PBS - or whatever they called it back then). All of them stopped programming for JFK and the Moon landing. I do not recall all of them stopping for RFK or MLK but I could be wrong.
