TALKED-ABOUT TALK SHOW HOST IS SILENCED BY GUNSHOTS AS DETECTIVES QUESTION MERRY WIDOW -- After a controversial and conservative talk show host is shot to death, Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) consider a wealth of likely suspects but focus on Miranda (guest star Paula Devicq ) - who would inherit his estate only upon death - as well as on Karen (guest star Dana Eskelson), a tormented woman who claims she had an affair with the new widow. As new A.D.A. Borgia (new series regular Annie Parisse, "National Treasure") sizes up the case, she finds disturbing evidence that Karen was stalking the widow, whose secret love life yields a treasure trove of evidence. Sam Waterston, S. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Dalton Thompson also star.
