How the George Zimmerman Trial is Playing on the Evening News

The cable networks continue live coverage of the George Zimmerman trial as lead detective Chris Serino is back on the stand this morning.

As the made-for-cable trial gets non-stop coverage on HLN, MSNBC, CNN and nearly non-stop on Fox news — to ratings success — here’s how Monday’s proceedings were covered on the three network evening newscasts.

  • ABC World News: 6 minutes into the newscast, a story by Matt Gutman
  • NBC Nightly News: 15 minutes into the newscast, a story by Ron Mott
  • CBS Evening News: 21 minutes into the newscast, a 20-second voice over by Scott Pelley
