There's no doubt this week has been all about Jenni Rivera.

Since her tragic death this past Sunday as a result of a plane crash, La Diva De La Banda has more than dominated the news – heartbroken fans have held vigils for Rivera and new details of her accident continue to filter in. And, now, the late banda superstar will be the main focus of Univision’s primetime lineup this weekend.

The Spanish-language media giant has scheduled special programs centered on the late singer on Sunday: news show Aquí y Ahora will air a Jenni Rivera Live Special with the latest information surrounding the singer and her death from 7 pm – 8 pm. It’s already been reported that Rivera’s body was flown on Thursday night via jet to Long Beach Airport in California and, according to Fox News Latino, funeral preparations are currently underway in Los Angeles for sometime next week.

In addition to its Aquí y Ahora show, Univision will also air (from 8 pm- 10 pm) a special of never-before-seen footage of Rivera’s last concert, which took place at the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City. Lastly that night at 10 pm, Sal y Pimienta will host a special program dedicated to the late singer.

Will you be watching any of these shows dedicated to the beloved Jenni?
