Tonight On The CBS Evening News

Here’s an early look at what we are working on from Anchor and Managing Editor of The CBS Evening News, Katie Couric

Hi everyone,

We'll begin our broadcast with breaking news: U.S. Airways flight 1549 went down in the Hudson River this afternoon after taking off from New York's LaGuardia airport. With a massive rescue effort underway this afternoon, our correspondents are working on the story and will have the very latest this evening.

Randall Pinkston will report on the remarkable police and firefighter response on the water, as preliminary reports say all of the roughly 150 passengers on board have been taken off the plane. Luckily, no fatalities have been reported.

CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian will report on exactly how an incident like this could happen. And Bob Orr, a correspondent and aviation expert, will provide more details and analysis from Washington.

Meanwhile, the frigid blast of arctic air that's moved across the Midwest and Great Plains is now socking the Northeast, with bitterly cold temperatures and snow showers. By the way, they’re still breaking records in the Midwest. In Bismarck, North Dakota, it hit 44 below zero today, the coldest it’s been there in 59 years. Cynthia Bowers will have the latest on the deep freeze and THE EARLY SHOW weather anchor Dave Price will explain how the weather could affect the Inauguration festivities in Washington.

Drug maker Eli Lilly and Co. said it's agreed to pay a $1.4 billion settlement after criminal and civil investigations into the marketing of antipsychotic drug Zyprexa. The company was accused of targeting the elderly in nursing homes and living facilities, promoting Zyprexa for illnesses that it’s not approved to treat. Sharyl Attkisson takes a closer look at exactly what happened.

Join us for all this and more tonight,
