Tonight's episode only aired for 1 hour. A CNN Special Report reaired in the normal second hour. This Special Report was hosted by Don Lemon and called "What's Going On - Marvin Gaye's Anthem for the Ages."

This episode only aired for 60 minutes instead of 120 minutes due to airing We Remember 500,000: A National Memorial Service for Covid-19 at 23:00. I add that show's summary to mark this devastating event: "CNN's Jake Tapper marks the tragic milestone of 500,000 Americans who have been killed by the coronavirus pandemic. Guests include Cardinal Wilton Gregory, singer Marvin Sapp, and features Bill Hader, Larry Wilmore, Brad Paisley, and others."
