Dr. Robert Thompson, Director, Bleier Center for Television & Popular Culture, Syracuse University talks with Bo. The OJ Simpson special aired on FOX for a 1994 event - still a defining story in American conciousness. Recent excellent documentaries on OJ helped keep it alive. American Idol, now on ABC, beat OJ special, though still low ratings. New agreement with Turner and CBS as big time sporting events go to cable.
