Quick programming alert: Anderson Cooper will interview the four New York Times journalists who were captured then freed in Libya earlier this month.

CNN and Cooper get the first primetime interview with the group — Stephen Farrell, Anthony Shadid, Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario. They already told their story in print in the Times, and were on NBC's "Today" show this morning.

Cooper became part of the government-versus-journalists narrative in the Middle East last month when he was attacked while covering the uprisings in Egypt.

The interview will air at 10 p.m. ET.
