It was well covered as a major news story, but I don't think it took over
the whole newscast.  Likewise the death of Bing Crosby.  

While I agree that it may be overkill to devote most of a newscast to
Sinatra, I do think it's a slow news weekend.  No Woodward trials, and
Monica is old hat. 

On the other hand, I'll probably be delighted if the newscasts are filled
with Howdy Doody footage when Buffalo Bob dies (He's 80 and in good
health, BTW.).
