Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett
Viewers were drawn to their televisions on Thursday night as multiple networks fast-tracked special programming paying tribute to Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson, both of whom passed away earlier in the day.
ABC's special 20/20 broadcast dedicated to Fawcett — and featuring an exclusive sit-down with the love of the actress' life, Ryan O'Neal — drew 8.23 million total viewers at 10 pm, making it the evening's second-most watched program (edged out only by a CSI repeat).
Also at 10, Dateline NBC's own remembrance of Fawcett drew 5.8 mil.
Of the Jackson tributes, CBS' 10 pm special delivered 7.6 mil, while ABC's and NBC's 9 o'clock profiles did 5.7 mil and 5.2 mil, respectively.
Elsewhere on Thursday, So You Think You Can Dance — which made note of all three tragic losses this week, Ed McMahon's included, and showed a "Thriller" clip - drew 6.9 mil.
Here's a roundup of all the Michael Jackson-themed programming planned for this weekend (all times ET/PT unless otherwise specified):

Looking back through TVGuide.com's video archives, we found tons of great Michael Jackson footage: vintage performances by Jackson and his brothers; his grandiose solo performances; and his signature sophisticated videos, some of which VH1 has deconstructed, Pop Up Video-style, for the stories behind the songs.
Los Angeles police have interviewed the private doctor who was with Michael Jackson when he apparently suffered cardiac arrest — and impounded the doctor's car because it may contain "medications or other evidence," police told TVGuide.com.
The news came as a coroner's investigator announced Friday that the cause of Jackson's death could not be determined without further testing, including toxicology results expected to take four to six weeks. Craig Harvey, chief investigator for the L.A. County Coroner's Office, said there was "no indication of any external trauma or any foul play."

The doctor's car, left at Jackson's home, was impounded because anything inside it "could be helpful to the coroner in determining the cause of death," Los Angeles Police Department officer Karen Rayner said. Detectives planned to talk again with the doctor, who was cooperative and is not under criminal investigation, she said.
