CNNI coverage of Saddam execution

I noticed CNNI taking "This Week At War" live from CNN/US after 0100 gmt, rather than World News. I believe CNNI started simulcasting CNN/US from the Situation Room at 0000 gmt. This continued until around 0150, when Asieh Namdar continued with World News, live from Atlanta. Larry King continued live at 0200 gmt.

At 0306 gmt, a report came through that Saddam Hussein had been executed. At this time, CNNI was relaying AC360 as scheduled, with live coverage of the reaction to the execution. Although I went to bed shortly after this, I understand coverage from CNN/US continued for several hour after this, with Anderson Cooper at the helm.
