OJ out around 10/1

TV's O.J. Simpson obsession is back, with his parole hearing yesterday (July 20th) broadcast live across networks, as he was granted parole after serving nine years in a Nevada prison for armed robbery for trying to steal sports collectibles in a Las Vegas hotel room. ABC, CBS and NBC dumped their regular daytime programming to air the parole hearing live, which was also broadcast on CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, CNBC, HLN and ESPN. TV's interest may also go beyond Simpson's parole hearing, with Page Six citing an insider as saying the 70-year-old is being flooded with offers to do a reality TV show. Americans were glued to their TV screens more than 20 years ago during the long-running coverage of Simpson's murder trial, and public interest in the case has been revived with ESPN's documentary, O.J.: Made in America, and the FX miniseries, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story
