The sudden death of Philip Seymour Hoffman is a tragedy for his family and friends, and it’s a great loss for his many fans. He was a brilliant actor, and here’s one of his best scenes from “Charlie Wilson’s War.”
“The Newsroom” has been an excellent show on HBO for its first two seasons, but unfortunately this drama from Aaron Sorkin will end this year with its third season being its last. Jeff Daniels was excellent on this show winning an Emmy for his performance. Bullz-Eye.com recently named star Olivia Munn as one of the 30 sexiest TV actresses from 2013, and had “The Newsroom” ranked as the 5th best show on TV.
Perhaps Sorkin decided not to push for more season, but it’s disappointing that this one will end.
Meanwhile, “Boardwalk Empire” will also have its last season this year, but that show tailed off after the first couple of seasons.

So fans of this blonde hottie will have plenty to watch in 2014. Enjoy!

Hollywood, the sports world and sports betting fans have been linked together since what seems like the beginning of time. From the Paul Newman//Jackie Gleason 1961 classic “The Hustler “ to modern day films such as “Silver Linings Playbook” with Robert De Niro and the incredibly hot and talented Jennifer Lawrence, sports gambling movies allow viewers to dream of riches through sports wagering. The following sports betting in the movies infographic features some of the best sports betting movies ever produced.
Despite tons of issues on the field and court battles off of it, the NFL continues to enjoy incredible popularity. The NFL Network has been a huge hit and has become a real asset for the NFL. The Super Bowl has always been an iconic sporting event, but now it has practically been elevated to national holiday status. Television ratings for the Super Bowl routinely set records or come close. We’re not talking about records just for sportsing events. We’re talking about records for all-time television audiences.
Of course, betting and fantasy football have increibly huge effects on the popularity of the NFL and the Super Bowl. Fans will be getting ready to gamble at SuperBowl360.com or at one of the sports books in Las Vegas as they consider everything from the final score to which songs will be played by Bruno Mars during the halftime show. Which brings up yet another draw, as now we have music and celebrity fans making sure to tune in. The NFL has been brilliant about making this an event for everyone, from hard core sports fans, betters, teenagers and more. Women and men obsess about the spread at the Super Bowl party. Even the television commercials have become part of our national conversation.
This year we have yet another factor that might goose the television ratings – snow. Or at least the possibility of snow. This will be the first Super Bowl plyed outdoors in a northern city as the game will be played in New Jersey. As we saw last week, mother nature can significantly alter an event, and the prospect of snow in particular could really change things. Of course, it might just be dreary and cold, and that could actually take away from the pageantry of the event. But a field covered in snow would be a novelty that everyone would semmingly want to see. It might make the actual game a joke, but we might just see the highest Super Bowl ratings ever.
