Now that the Casey Anthony trial is over, is this the end of Nancy Grace's media reign?

Oh, friend, it's people like you who that make sure that the devil is dancing tonight, am I right, Nancy Grace?

Anyway. If you want Grace to take her fire-breathing nostrils of righteous outrage elsewhere, do not read any further:

For her ratings are quite high, and people, apparently, love her.

According to Dylan Stableford, the media writer for Yahoo! News, Grace's network, CNN spin-off HLN, also known as the Casey Anthony Network, has been benefiting greatly from its take on the trial. The network beat MSNBC in total viewers in June, Stableford reports, averaging 982,000 in primetime, which is an increase of 86 percent.

"The CNN-owned cable network was also tops in total viewers and the coveted 25 to 54 demographic between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., a showing that outperformed the lead cable ratings giant Fox News," Stableford notes.

In fact, this past month has been the best month ever for HLN, largely because of Grace.

"Make no mistake: Tuesday was Grace's Super Bowl," Stableford writes.

Interest in Grace has not been limited to TV, either.

According to my contacts at Yahoo!, "the intensity in seeking live news rivals that of breaking news, including the shootings at Fort Hood and Virginia Tech, and the death of Michael Jackson. Leading the media coverage queries on Yahoo! were HLN, Nancy Grace in particular, and Orlando Sentinel."

In other words, Grace's job is more secure than ever. And how does that make you feel, friend?
