Michael Jackson's death has resulted in a TV event when networks are racing against each other to air a tribute to the late King of Pop. Within hours after the singer was pronounced dead on Thursday, June 25, NBC and CBS gathered up documentary about his life but it was CNN's coverage that led the Thursday night rating.

The news channel drew up to 3.9 million viewers despite fierce competition from Fox News (2.9 million) and MSNBC (1.4 million). According to TV by the Numbers, the numbers show a boost on average performance by the networks with CNN in particular gaining 381% raise from its second quarter average.

However, more similar footage about Michael are expected to run for weeks. Below is the run-down of tributes airing on several networks in the days to come. Some may be mashed with tributes for Farrah Fawcett who also passed away on the same day Michael did.
