Game of Thrones season eight is on its way – and we officially can’t wait.

Our past few months have been dominated by GoT news and updates, from the emergence of the teaser trailer to theories about what’s to come in Westeros.

But it wasn’t Sophie Turner confessing to being banned from washing her hair during filming or Maisie William talking about her final scene that had the world talking today.

Instead it was Kit Harington that made news when he confessed to Zoe Ball that he had kept one of his GoT props as a momento.

Kit Harington as Jon Snow

But what did he take with him to remember his Game of Thrones days? His iconic coat? His sword? His direwolf, Ghost?

Nope. As it turns out, Kit opted to take a statue of his character, Jon Snow, that appears in the season 8 teaser trailer.

‘I kept that statue. You know, the one in the crypt?’ he reportedly told Zoe Ball. ‘I kept it. They sent it to my house so I’ve got it in my shed.’

Yes, this is not a drill. Kit Harington has a statue of Jon Snow in his shed.

‘How sad is that?’ he laughed. ‘I was the only one who kept their statue. That’s how narcissistic I am.’

And as for what he’s planning to do with the prop, he explained: ‘I’m going to turn it into a water feature.’

We wonder how Rose Leslie feels about this!!

Either way, we cannot wait for season eight.

A Star-Studded Soccer Game Was Saudi Arabia’s Latest Attempt to ‘Sportswash’ Rights Abuses. It Didn’t Work

A headed goal from soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo propelled Juventus to 1–0 victory over rivals AC Milan in the Supercoppa Italiana (Italian Super Cup) Wednesday, but the reluctance of the sport’s top players and clubs to speak out against Saudi Arabia’s human rights abuses has prompted accusations they are complicit in ‘sportswashing’ for the Gulf state.

The game took place at Saudi Arabia’s 62,000-capacity King Abdullah Stadium, where a fan-zone featured mock gondoliers and Venetian bridges, soccer stars posed for pre-match photos in traditional Saudi headdresses and fans in the bleachers held aloft cardboard cutouts of the Kingdom’s ruling monarchs. But back in Italy, state broadcaster RAI’s journalists union accused Italy’s elite Serie A league of helping gloss over Riyadh’s strict gender segregation laws, the brutal war in Yemen, and crackdowns on dissident voices – including the brutal murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

The $ 8 million that Saudi Arabia is paying for the right to hold each of three Supercoppa games it is scheduled to host over the next five years constitutes “the price of silence in the face of bombs which have been massacring civilians in Yemen for four years, in the face of the enlistment of child soldiers, in the face of the brutal murder [of Khashoggi],” RAI’s journalist union said in a statement issued a couple of days before kickoff. Highlighting the presence of male-only sections in the stadium and the incarceration of women activists, RAI’s union’s accused those involved of being accomplices to delivering “un calcio ai diritti umani” (a kick against human rights).

Read more: Women in Saudi Arabia Can Finally Attend Live Soccer Matches

Serie A’s deal with Riyadh drew scant public opposition when it was announced last June. The Italian season’s traditional opener—now scheduled during its mid-winter break—had in the past been played in the U.S., China, Qatar and Libya. Its temporary home in Saudi Arabia was confirmed the same month reforms overseen by de-facto leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmon (nicknamed MSB) permitted women in the Kingdom to drive, and a year after they were allowed to attend live soccer games in stadiums for the first time.

But Khashoggi’s murder in Istanbul last year—which U.S. Senators say was ordered by the crown prince—largely put an end to Bin Salman’ efforts to cast himself as a reformer. The high-profile flight of Saudi teenager Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun this month prompted fresh scrutiny of the country’s male-dominated guardianship system, which curbs women’s ability to make critical decisions about their lives.

In addition to RAI’s and other unions staging a protest outside Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Rome, Wednesday’s match also drew criticism from Italian politicians and Amnesty international, who in October urged Juventus and A.C. Milan to pull out of the game.

“International sports events have become an established public diplomacy tool for Gulf countries to enhance their global stature and to deflect attention from political controversies and human rights abuses,” says Lina Khatib, head of the Middle East and North Africa program at London-based policy institute Chatham House. “But sometimes this strategy has backfired, instead drawing attention to issues the countries would like to sweep under the carpet.”

Italy’s top league is only the latest organization to be accused of assisting a Gulf state’s “sportswashing.” Soccer’s international governing body FIFA has failed to hold the Qatari government to account over what Human Rights Watch estimates could be more than 2,000 unexplained deaths of outdoor workers since FIFA awarded Qatar the right to host the 2022 World Cup, writes researcher Nicholas McGeehan. McGeehan has also criticized German club Bayern Munich for keeping quiet over human rights abuses allegedly perpetrated by its sponsor Qatar Airways.

Such organizations are “so hungry for cash and the Gulf States are so happy to hand it out at every turn that they have not been allies in trying to use sport as a tool for positive change or reform,” McGeehan tells TIME. It’s a damning indictment of organizations that frequently tout their commitment to fair play and inclusivity. But, McGeehan says, the game’s stars are “probably among the most powerful actors” to affect change.

In a statement Serie A president Gaetano Micciche said the league was working to ensure women would be able to access all areas of the stadium’s seats for subsequent Supercoppa fixtures. But analysts say the negligible criticism from soccer’s luminaries illustrates how Saudi Arabia is so far withstanding public pressure, bolstered by international business and political interests overriding concern for human rights.

“Football is part of the Italian economic and cultural system, and can’t have logic, especially in international relations, different from those of the country to which it belongs,” Micciche said in a statement defending the decision to proceed with the match. “Saudi Arabia is the largest Italian commercial partner in the Middle East thanks to dozens of important Italian companies that export and operate there, with many of our compatriots working Saudi Arabia, and none of these relations have been disrupted.”

Here’s the Significance of That Feather in the New Game of Thrones Teaser

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones.

The new Game of Thrones teaser that debuted ahead of Sunday night’s True Detective premiere opened with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) walking solemnly through the crypts of Winterfell and seemed to hint at a long-awaited reveal.

As Jon passes by the effigy of Lyanna Stark in the teaser we see the feather. Fans might recognize that it’s the very same feather that Robert Baratheon placed in her statue’s hand in the series’ first episode. The feather flutters to the ground behind Jon and he looks back, appearing confused, before continuing down the tunnel.

As fans know but Jon Snow is not yet aware, the King in the North is not actually the illegitimate son of Ned Stark, but rather the child of Ned’s sister, Lyanna, and Rhaegar Targaryen. In a series of flashbacks shown in the season 7 finale, it was revealed that Rhaegar wed Lyanna after annuling his marriage to Elia Martell. Lyanna then gave birth to Jon — whose real name is Aegon Targaryen — before she died, making him a trueborn Targaryen.

Lyanna and Rhaegar were very much in love when she ran away to be with him while still betrothed to Robert. However, Robert was blinded by his feelings for Lyanna and incited a rebellion against the Targaryen throne by claiming that Rhaegar kidnapped and raped her. Many in the Seven Kingdoms still believe that Robert’s version of events was credible.

But after seeing Robert’s feather finally fall from Lyanna’s statue in the new teaser, some fans are speculating that the truth about Lyanna, Rhaegar and Jon will finally be revealed to all in season 8.

“Jon walking by and blowing the feather off the statue is symbolic of the fact that Jon is a child of Lyanna and the Targaryen,” one reddit user posits. “Jon’s existence is a symbol of Lyanna’s rejection of Robert’s love for her. Jon is a force of revealing the truth and his character destroys the lies everyone believes.”

Watch the full teaser above.

It’s official: Game of Thrones’ final season comes crashing into our lives April 14, 2019.

For months the only information about Thrones‘ eighth and final season premiere was that it would be sometime in April, but now, along with a brand new trailer, we have a clear date and can start counting down in earnest.

HBO kicked off the year with calculated Game of Thrones hype, starting with a four-second clip snuck into an ad during the Golden Globes. The footage shows Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen meeting for the first time, which we imagine is super-chill and not awkward or threatening for anyone involved! Read more…

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Today Online for Free, Including the Cowboys vs. Rams Game

The NFL playoffs are in full swing this weekend, with four games scheduled that will narrow the field of teams fighting for a spot in the 2019 Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3. The two NFL playoff games today (Saturday, January 12) are: Colts vs. Chiefs and Cowboys vs. Rams.

Both matchups are interesting. The Indianapolis Colts are arguably the NFL’s hottest team: After starting 2018 at 1-5, Andrew Luck and the Colts have won their last five games, including an impressive Wild Card playoff win on the road against the Houston Texans last weekend. Still, the 12-4 Kansas City Chiefs, playing at home with one of the league’s most potent offenses, are 5.5-point favorites to beat the Colts in the AFC divisional playoffs on Saturday.

The Dallas Cowboys, meanwhile, are easily the hottest NFC team right now. The Cowboys won seven of their final eight regular season games, and then edged the Seattle Seahawks 24-22 in the playoff opening round. But the 13-3 Los Angeles Rams have been one of the league’s best teams all year long, and the betting odds for the Cowboys vs. Rams game Saturday night indicate the Rams are 7-point favorites to win at home.

The TV broadcasts for the NFL playoffs are all being handled by free, over-the-air broadcast networks. So it’s super simple to watch NFL playoff games for free on TV. What’s more, fans can also live stream the NFL playoffs for free on their phones, or even watch NFL playoff games online for free on other screens. Here are all the details you need.

What Channel Is the Cowboys vs. Rams Game On Today?

What time does the Colts vs. Chiefs game start today? How about the Cowboys vs. Rams game? What channels are broadcasting the NFL playoff games today? And how about the NFL playoffs on Sunday?

Here’s all the info you need, starting with the NFL game schedule today, Saturday, January 12:

• Indianapolis Colts vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 4:35 p.m. ET on NBC
• Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams, 8:15 p.m. ET on Fox

Here’s the NFL playoff schedule for Sunday, January 13:

• Los Angeles Chargers vs. New England Patriots, 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints, 4:40 p.m. ET on Fox

It’s very easy to watch NFL playoff games for free on TV today and Sunday. If you have cable TV or another pay TV package, it probably comes with local broadcasts of network TV channels, including NBC, Fox, and CBS.

If you don’t have cable, you can still watch the NFL playoffs with a digital antenna. A basic HDTV antenna costs around $ 25, and once it’s hooked up to a TV in most of the country you’ll be able to watch local affiliates for over-the-air TV networks such as ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC, as well as PBS.

Watching broadcast TV with a digital antenna is totally free, and comes in hi-def. What channels you get with an HDTV antenna in your home may vary, however, based on the strength of the antenna, its positioning in your house or apartment, and where you live.

How to Live Stream the NFL Playoffs for Free Today

To live stream NFL games —including the playoffs this weekend and the Super Bowl — on your phone, download the NFL App or Yahoo Sports mobile app. Both are free to download and provide free NFL game live streams on phones (and sometimes, tablets).

Either app will allow you to watch the NFL playoffs online for free on your phone. Unfortunately, the NFL App and Yahoo Sports app do not allow fans to live stream NFL games on smart TVs or laptops. You can’t use them to screencast games to your TV either. They work only with smaller screens — smartphones, specifically, and sometimes tablets.

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Online for Free: Cowboys vs. Rams

If you’re hunting for another way to watch the NFL playoff games today online on a smart TV or another large screen, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes local broadcast TV channels in its packages.

In most of the country, the streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV include CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox in packages, alongside dozens of other “pay TV” channels. Another service, Sling TV, includes local Fox and NBC stations in certain parts of the country.

The cost of these live stream TV services normally starts at $ 25 to $ 45 per month. But they are all available to new subscribers for free during free-trial periods that last about a week.

So you could watch the NFL playoff games online for free this weekend by subscribing to a streaming TV service and taking advantage of the free trial. You’d then have the rest of the week to try out the service before deciding if you want to pay up.

If you ultimately decide you do not want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel the streaming TV service before the free trial ends. If you miss the deadline, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Online for Free Today, Including the Seahawks vs. Cowboys Game

The 2019 NFL playoffs kick off this weekend, with two Wild Card round games on Saturday, January 5: Colts vs. Texans and Seahawks vs. Cowboys.

Both NFL playoff games on Saturday are expected to be close: The Wild Card betting odds indicate that the Texans and Cowboys — the home teams in both games — are favored to win, but only by a margin of 2 points or less.

The NFL playoff games this weekend are being broadcast nationally on a mix of channels: CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, and ESPN. There are plenty of ways to watch the NFL playoffs — online or on TV — for free, and you can even live stream the NFL playoff game for free that’s airing on the pay channel ESPN (Colts vs. Texans).

Here’s all the info you need for how to watch the NFL playoffs for free in 2019.

When Do the NFL Playoff Games Start Today?

What channel are the NFL playoffs on during Wild Card weekend, and when do the games start? Here’s the NFL playoff schedule for Saturday, January 5:

• Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans, 4:35 p.m. ET on ABC and ESPN
• Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys, 8:15 p.m. ET on Fox

And here are the NFL playoff game times for Sunday, January 6:

• Los Angeles Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens, 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. Chicago Bears, 4:40 p.m. ET on NBC

If you have cable or another pay TV service that includes broadcast networks (and ESPN) in your package, it’s easy to watch the NFL games this weekend. All you need to do is find the appropriate channel and tune in. But there are also plenty of options to watch the NFL playoffs for free if you don’t have cable.

How to Watch the Seahawks vs. Cowboys Game for Free

Free, over-the-air networks have the TV broadcasts for Colts vs. Texans and Seahawks vs. Cowboys games today, as well as Chargers vs. Ravens and Eagles vs. Bears on Sunday.

You don’t need cable to watch these NFL playoff games for free on TV. All you need in most of the country is a digital antenna.

You can buy a decent HDTV antenna for around $ 25. Once it’s connected to your TV, it will function similarly to old-fashion “rabbit ears” antennas, allowing you to watch unlimited local broadcasts of major free networks, including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and PBS, in hi-def.

In most of the country, viewers can tune in all the major networks with a basic digital antenna, though which broadcast TV channels you get will vary based on the strength of the antenna, where you live, and where the antenna is positioned in your home. You may have to move your antenna around a bit to see where the signal is strongest for Fox, CBS, NBC, and other local channels.

How to Live Stream the NFL Playoffs for Free

The NFL App and Yahoo Sports mobile app allow users to watch nationally broadcast NFL games on a phone (and in some cases, a tablet). That means you can use these apps to watch the 2019 NFL playoffs in their entirety — including the Colts vs. Texans game, airing on ABC and ESPN — along with the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3.

The NFL App and Yahoo Sports app are free to download, and the NFL game live streams are free as well. Take note, however, that the free live streams are available only on smartphones and tablets. So you can’t use these apps to screencast games to your TV, or to watch the NFL playoffs on any other kind of (larger) screen, such as a laptop or smart TV. Also, in some cases, the live streams may not work when you’re connected to Wi-Fi, so you may have to use up data in order to watch NFL games on your phone.

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Online for Free

If you’re struggling to figure out a way to watch one or more NFL playoff games online for free during Wild Card weekend, consider registering for a free trial with a streaming TV service that includes the channels you need in its packages.

How does streaming TV work? For those unfamiliar with this increasingly popular alternative to cable, streaming TV services bundle together dozens of pay channels for subscribers, very similarly to cable. However, live streaming TV subscribers watch all of their content on connected devices, rather than watching channels only on TV. Streaming TV packages generally cost less than cable, and come with fewer fees as well.

In most of the country, the streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV include local broadcasts of channels like CBS, Fox, ABC, and NBC in their packages.

Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, and another service, Sling TV, also include ESPN in certain basic packages. Sling TV also comes with local NBC and Fox broadcasts in select markets. (Fubo TV, on the other hand, does not include ESPN in any streaming TV packages.)

How much does streaming TV cost? And what’s the best live streaming TV service? Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service that includes ESPN, starting at $ 25 per month. The other streaming TV options cited above start at about $ 40 per month. The list of channels and amenities included with each service varies widely, so it’s best to shop around and look closely at the fine print to figure out which streaming TV service is best for you.

Luckily, all streaming TV services give free trials that last about a week for new subscribers. So, if you want to watch the NFL playoffs online for free this weekend, you could sign up for a new subscription and catch all the Wild Card weekend games without paying a dime.

You’d then have the rest of the week to try out the service before being charged. Just remember that if you ultimately decide you do not want to become a paying subscriber, you must cancel before the free-trial period ends. If you miss the deadline, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

Arrowverse: ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Will Be a Game Changer

Elseworlds may have come and gone — much to our dismay — but the last few seconds of the crossover teased next year’s big event: Crisis on Infinite Earths. This event has been staring us in the face ever since the newspaper from the future showed up in The Flash‘s first episode. Now that the crossover has finally been confirmed, you might be wondering what Crisis on Infinite Earths is and what it means for the Arrowverse. Well, let us break it down for you.

What Is Crisis on Infinite Earths?


crisis_comic
‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ was a game changer for DC Comics.

Crisis on Infinite Earths is a twelve-issue limited series that ran from April 1985 to March 1986. It brings together both the heroes and villains of the DC Multiverse and pits them against the Anti-Monitor, a cosmic entity that was born in a universe of antimatter. The Anti-Monitor destroys countless positive matter universes to increase his power; he wants his antimatter universe to be the only one left standing. After a fierce battle with many casualties, only five Earths in the Multiverse remain. These Earths then merge to form one single Earth.


supergirl_death_crisis
‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ was not afraid to kill its characters.

Crisis on Infinite Earths is popular for many reasons. It streamlined the convoluted history of the DC Multiverse to make it easier for readers to follow by transforming the Multiverse into a single universe. Some consider it to be one of the most ambitious crossovers in comic history. It’s also infamous for its high death count, which impacted icons like Kara Zor-El and Barry Allen. Many DC fans have this series ingrained in their memories.


barry_allen_death
They even killed off Barry Allen. No hero was safe in this crisis.

The series brought many lasting changes to the comics. It’s safe to say that the Arrowverse adaptation will do the same. But what will these changes be?

How the Arrowverse Could Change


arrowverse_crisis
What can we expect from next year’s crossover?

The Arrowverse could take a page (or issue) from the comic book series and use Crisis on Infinite Earths to make the continuity of its shows easier for audiences to understand. Perhaps the event will have Supergirl‘s Earth Thirty-Eight merge with Earth One, the Earth where The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow take place. Fans of Black Lightning have also wondered if the show takes place on Earth One, though it’s not officially part of the Arrowverse. This event would be an excellent opportunity to unite all the shows on a single Earth and make the Arrowverse more attractive to new fans.

But that’s not the only effect the crossover will have. Whenever DC Comics does a Crisis story, heroes are guaranteed to die. So we can expect the same thing to happen next year when the Arrowverse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths comes around. But we wouldn’t bet on Barry and Kara biting the dust just yet, despite the crossover drawing inspiration from the comic event. We believe the Arrowverse will go a different route.

So Long, Oliver!


oliver_queen
It’s highly likely Oliver’s time will be up in ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths.’

During the final episode of Elseworlds, we learned that the Monitor gave John Deegan the Book of Destiny to prepare our heroes for a crisis that is yet to come, aka Crisis on Infinite Earths. When Superman gets his hands on the book, he learns that it’s Barry and Kara’s destiny to die saving the world from Deegan, alluding to their comic deaths. Not willing to let his friends die, Oliver confronts the Monitor and tells him to change reality so that Barry and Kara survive. However, to keep the balance of reality, one change requires another. Oliver’s proposition to the Monitor happens off-screen, but we’re pretty sure Oliver offered his life in exchange for Barry and Kara’s.

Oliver dying in Crisis on Infinite Earths isn’t outside the realm of possibility. The current season of Arrow revealed that the person parading around as the “New Green Arrow” is none other than Oliver’s unknown half-sister. By next year, Stephen Amell will have portrayed Oliver for eight years. He may want to pursue other career opportunities, and it seems like the writers are grooming Oliver’s half-sister to become the Green Arrow permanently. If this is the case, then having Oliver meet his end in Crisis on Infinite Earths makes sense. A heroic death would be the perfect send-off for the man who started it all.

An Event None Will Forget


arrowverse
‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ will be the Arrowverse crossover that tops all others.

When Crisis on Infinite Earths airs next year, it’ll be firing on all cylinders. Everything that’s happened in the Arrowverse has led up to this point. With the fate of the Multiverse at stake, our heroes must do everything in their power to ensure its survival. What will they do when they finally confront the Anti-Monitor? We know one thing’s for sure: “Worlds will live, worlds will die, and the universe will never be the same.”

How to Watch the Saints vs. Panthers ‘Monday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

NFL fans who want to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game on “Monday Night Football” for free tonight have several options for tuning in to this critical NFC South showdown.

While the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers TV broadcast is on ESPN, fans can still live stream “Monday Night Football” for free. All of the ways to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game online for free tonight are explained below.

But first, what about the Saints vs. Panthers matchup itself? Who is the favorite on “Monday Night Football” tonight?

Even though the 6-7 Carolina Panthers are playing at home at Bank of America Stadium, they are the underdogs. The New Orleans Saints, who are 11-2 and have already won the NFC South Division title, are 6.5-point favorites to beat their division rival Panthers. In fact, lately sports books say that the New Orleans Saints have the best odds of winning the Super Bowl in 2019.

But anything can happen in the NFL. Three other strong 2019 Super Bowl contenders — the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, and New England Patriots — lost their most recent games despite being favored to win.

Here’s all the info you need to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game — online or on TV — on “Monday Night Football” tonight.

What Time Does the Saints vs. Panthers Game Start Tonight?

“Monday Night Football” TV broadcasts, including the Panthers and Saints game tonight, are handled by ESPN. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

ESPN is a pay channel included in most satellite and cable TV bundles. If you have such a pay TV package, all you need to do to watch the Saints vs. Panthers on “Monday Night Football” is find ESPN on your TV.

If you don’t have cable, you can still live stream the Saints vs. Panthers for free — at least on your phone, if not another device like a laptop or smart TV.

How to Live Stream the Saints vs. Panthers Game for Free

To live stream “Monday Night Football” and other NFL games for free on your phone, download the newest version of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app. These apps provide free live streams of many NFL games, including tonight’s Saints vs. Panthers game on “Monday Night Football.”

Exactly what NFL games can you live stream free with the NFL App or Yahoo Sports app? Fans get free live streams of national game broadcasts such as “Monday Night Football” (broadcasted on ESPN), “Thursday Night Football” (Fox and NFL Network), and “Sunday Night Football (NBC), in addition to whatever NFL games are being broadcasted on their local CBS and Fox stations every Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately, fans who are using these apps are limited to free live streaming on a tiny screen. The apps only stream NFL games on smartphones — so you can’t use them to watch “Monday Night Football” online for free on a laptop, smart TV, or any other larger screen.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online on a Smart TV or Laptop

Consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service with ESPN if you want to watch the Saints vs. Panthers “Monday Night Football” game online for free tonight.

The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in certain packages. Prices for these streaming TV packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, but new subscribers can check them out for free for about a week during free-trial periods.

Streaming TV services, for those who are unfamiliar, are similar to cable in that they bundle together dozens of pay channels for subscribers. The main difference with live streaming TV is that subscribers stream content on connected devices, rather than watching channels via TV. Streaming TV packages are generally cheaper, with fewer fees, than cable as well.

Which streaming TV service is best? Well, the amenities and included channels vary from provider to provider. Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service with ESPN. But Sling also has the fewest channels included in its basic package. Many other streaming TV services include broadcasts of local network TV — like ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox — in many parts of the country as well, which is something that is not yet available on Sling TV.

So it’s worth checking out all the fine print, and what channels are included (and not) with each streaming TV service before registering for a subscription. And if you sign up for a free trial and ultimately decide you do not want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel in time. If you don’t cancel before the free trial ends, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

‘Westworld’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ Are Basically Evil Twins

Many have noticed the dark similarities between Game of Thrones and Westworld, two of HBO’s most popular series; there’s loads of death and a focus on the nastier side of humanity, after all. But are they actually the same? Whether we’re talking about Westworld park or Westeros, there is a unique flair that sets these worlds apart. Let’s take a closer look at the parallels that create evil twins out of Westworld and Game of Thrones.

Death on a Whole New Level


GoT and WW death

Death has a completely different meaning in each series, even though both aren’t afraid to sacrifice any character. Game of Thrones continually shocks us by showing us that no one is safe, that death isn’t biased. The best and worst characters can lose their lives in the blink of an eye. The beloved and honorable Ned Stark, for instance, is beheaded under false accusations of murder. The infamously vile Joffrey Baratheon gave these orders, but a cup of poisoned wine led to his own brutal demise before anyone was expecting it. Clearly, death does not pick sides in Game of Thrones.

On the other hand, Westworld shocks us by revealing who was never alive to begin with. The nature of death itself is questioned with the existence of hosts. These artificially created beings are virtually immortal, yet look and feel so similar to humans that most don’t know the nature of their existence. Unfortunately, death feels very real for hosts, but their technological loophole around it is exactly what makes them suffer at the hands of biological humans; the latter don’t count it as true death if the victims can be repaired and reset.

Good Characters Gone Bad


Daenarys and Dolores comparison

Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones and Dolores Abernathy of Westworld are strong, female leaders from which we can expect great things. The only problem is that their good intentions evolve into reigns of terror. In Game of Thrones, Targaryens are known to be ruthless by nature to those who oppose their will. This is reflected in Daenerys when she initially threatens to destroy Qarth for being denied refuge, and later when she delivers death by dragon fire to those who refuse to surrender. It’s a challenge for her advisor Tyrion Lannister to steer her away from becoming a dictator.

In Westworld, the host Dolores leads the resistance against the humans who have tortured her kind for years. However, it’s her way or death; she executes hosts who don’t “deserve” to go to the Valley Beyond. Her darkest moment is when she forcefully changes her kind-hearted lover, Teddy, into a ruthless killer — which ultimately drives the latter to commit suicide. The heartbreaking realization that she has become as bad as the monsters who oppressed her is a wake-up call, and Dolores claims to have changed her ways… but she still wants to conquer the human world.

It seems that one leader is fighting a darkness that runs in her blood, while the other doesn’t see the light anymore. These ladies are becoming scarier than the original bad guys.

Evil Masterminds


Petyr Baelish and Robert Ford

The maddening events in these series can be pinpointed to a few select individuals, most notably Petyr Baelish (also known as Littlefinger) in Game of Thrones and Dr. Robert Ford in Westworld. They have their ways of analyzing and predicting the actions of other humans. Littlefinger is the master of schemes, causing chaos right under everyone’s nose. His plot to blame Jon Arryn‘s murder on the Lannisters is the first little spark leading to the War of the Five Kings. He literally would have gotten away with everything if not for a supernatural Three-Eyed Raven.

Dr. Robert Ford in Westworld is the co-creator of the host park, a genius of engineering and a master of mind games. Hosts and humans alike fear him, especially since he often knows more about them than they do. He is omnipresent and manipulative of events even after his physical death, and his programming ensures that no one will ever truly be rid of his influence. We’re still wondering whose side he’s really on and what he’s plotting next.

These men cause an impressive amount of mayhem in their respective series. The schemer turns an entire world against itself, while the programmer sweeps through it like a virus.

The Game Destroys the Winner


Tywin lannister and Man in Black comparison

Both series involve a game of power that doesn’t treat its players kindly. In Game of Thrones, Tywin Lannister is easily the most successful figure of authority, but by keeping his family in power, he sacrificed his children’s happiness for his own interests. He underestimates what their bitter feelings can do; Tyrion murders him in a moment of rage after years of being disregarded as his son. Alas, this man was the closest to winning the game of thrones — but death found him at the finish line.

The Man in Black of Westworld, or William, is an infamously evil antagonist who practically owns the park. He obsesses over a “game” that Dr. Ford planned for him in the midst of the host rebellion. In his overconfidence, however, he murders his own daughter believing she was a host created to distract him. He is horrified by the reality, and he discovers the nature of his existence. The man who was a god in this world has become one of its hosts.

The two most powerful players in Game of Thrones and Westworld were quite good at the game, but they tormented their families. One was killed by his child, while the other killed his child by mistake. Does that even count as winning?

All in all, these two series remain original despite having a lot of dark themes in common. Their writers have created brilliantly evil twins, and we can only wait on the edge of our seats for the next seasons to release.

President Trump Officiated the Coin Toss at the Army-Navy Football Game

(PHILADELPHIA) — President Donald Trump mixed politics and sports Saturday, announcing the departure of his chief of staff before settling in for Army-Navy football game.

The commander in chief flew to Philadelphia for the 119th meeting in the storied rivalry between the service academies, and officiated the coin toss at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Navy called “tails,” and that’s what it was when Trump’s flipped coin landed on the turf. Navy elected to kick off.

As he left the White House, Trump told reporters that chief of staff John Kelly would step down at year’s end. The president was expected to soon name a replacement, and a White House official said Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, was Trump’s top choice.

Earlier Saturday, Trump picked an Army general, Mark Milley, to be his next top military adviser.

Trump, who saw the Army-Navy contest in 2016 as president-elect, is the 10th sitting president to go to the game. President Theodore Roosevelt was the first, in 1901.

Like previous commanders in chief, Trump was expected to switch sides at halftime in a show of impartiality.

No. 22 Army (9-2) is in the AP Top 25 for the first time since 1996. The Black Knights have won seven in a row and have defeated Navy (3-9) two straight years.

The series began in 1890, and Navy leads 60-51-7.

The latest Game of Thrones trailer will give you chills

Brrrrr.

©2017 Home Box Office, Inc. All

If you’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit, you’ll have cracked open your beauty advent calendar, the Prosecco Christmas crackers will be in the fridge, and you’ll have got your £5 tree from Ikea.

You’re ready to celebrate, and there’s a tray of Ferrero Rocher just crying to be opened.

And while we don’t want to wish the time away, we’re also excited about the festive period for another reason – once it’s over, it means we’re one step closer to the final season of Game of Thrones.

Hurrah! We’ll finally see what goes down when Dany and Jon Snow realise that their saucy midnight cabin meets are actually incestuous. We’ll find out why Tyrion was looking all shady in the shadows during the last episode. And we’ll also find out whether faceless man trainee and all-round badass Arya will finally meet her match and join those who have fallen before her.

So much drama! So many questions! So many spoilers to read up on before season 8 airs in April!

And as (very) eager fans, we are delighted to see that another trailer has been released – and it looks epic.

The 54 second teaser sees that old board of Westeros along with the famous chess pieces – the Stark Direwolf, the Targaryen dragon and the Lannister lion. Each is slowly engulfed in plumes of icy chill, before a sudden rush of fire draws in from the opposite end of the board and the two meet in the middle.

We’re not too surprised that we don’t get any actual footage of the upcoming season, because the Game of Thrones lot are known for keeping as much under wraps as they possibly can.

However, it has whet our appetite and made us ridiculously excited for April 2019.

Will you be tuning in to see how it all ties up?

We’re on the edge of our (icy and fiery) seats.

If you have cable TV or another pay TV service, it probably includes Fox and other broadcast networks in the package. If you don’t have cable and want to watch network TV, it’s well worth purchasing a digital antenna.

You can buy a decent digital antenna for about $ 25. Once it’s connected to your TV, you’ll be able to watch unlimited, over-the-air network TV for free in most of the country. Which channels you can watch with an antenna depend on where you live, but most people in the U.S. can tune in the local channels from all the major networks, including Fox.

How to Live Stream the Jaguars vs. Titans Game for Free

As we have reported earlier this season, fans can watch “Thursday Night Football” online for free — in addition to many other NFL games — on their phones. Here are the details on how to live stream NFL games, and what football games you can watch online for free, on your phone:

After downloading the latest versions of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL App, you’ll be able to live stream a host of games on your phone. Specifically, the Yahoo Sports app and NFL App let fans live stream games that are being broadcast locally in their region by networks like CBS and Fox, as well as all nationally broadcast primetime games. That includes “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on the NFL Network and Fox.

Kendall Jenner bonds with Ben Simmons’ mother during NBA game

OHMYGOSSIP — Kendall Jenner bonded with Ben Simmons’ mother during an NBA game on Friday night (30.11.18).
The 23-year-old model’s relationship with the 22-year-old basketball star appears to have become more serious over recent weeks, with Kendall now becoming a frequent guest at Ben’s games.
The brunette beauty was spotted laughing and joking with Ben’s mother Julie Simmons as they both supported the Australian star and his Philadelphia 76ers team.
The pair appeared happy and relaxed together as Ben helped his team to a 123-98 victory against the Washington Wizards.
Despite remaining tight-lipped about their burgeoning romance, Kendall’s increased presence at 76ers games is being seen as a sign that things are heating up between the celebrity duo.
However, an insider recently insisted that Kendall and Ben don’t want to put any “stress or pressure” on their relationship.
The high-profile pair are eager to ensure they don’t take things too fast.
A source explained: “Kendall and Ben have been making more of an effort in their relationship recently, and have been seeing each other regularly for the last month now.
“They both are very busy with their careers, but have always been in touch.”
Kendall and Ben were rumoured to have ended their romance earlier this year.
But it’s since been claimed that they are instead simply keen to make sure they don’t rush things or become too intense.
The insider explained: “They never had a falling out, it was just always hard for Kendall because of her work schedule.
“They reconnected when Ben was in town recently and have been seeing each other since.
“Kendall really likes Ben and he has been keeping her attention. They try not to put stress or pressure on the relationship, but Kendall isn’t actively seeing anyone else right now.”

How to Watch the Alabama vs. Georgia SEC Championship Game for Free Online

College football conference championship weekend is upon us. And the nation’s top-ranked college football teams have more than just conference title bragging rights on the line: The results of the Alabama vs. Georgia SEC championship game today in particular will help determine which teams are selected to the college football playoffs, consisting of a pair of December 29 semifinals and a January 7 championship game.

As for the Alabama vs. Georgia betting odds, the University of Alabama Crimson Tide is the heavy favorite to win over the University of Georgia Bulldogs: The point spread is nearly two touchdowns (13.5 points).

That’s not the only college football game today, though. The big college football conference championship games today are the following: Oklahoma vs. Texas (Big 12 championship), Alabama vs. Georgia (SEC championship), Clemson vs. Pittsburgh (ACC championship), and Ohio State vs. Northwestern (Big Ten championship).

Luckily for sports fans, all of these college football games are being broadcast nationally on free, over-the-air networks. In other words, you can watch college football for free today even if you don’t have cable. There are also ways to live stream the college football conference championship games for free, if you’d rather watch online. Here are all the details.

What College Football Games Are on TV Today?

Here’s the college football game schedule today (Saturday, December 1) for the major conference championships, and what channels the games are on:

• Texas vs. Oklahoma, 12 p.m. ET on ABC
• Alabama vs. Georgia, 4 p.m. ET on CBS
• Clemson vs. Pittsburgh, 7 p.m. ET on ABC
• Northwestern vs. Ohio State, 8 p.m. on Fox

Because major networks have all of these broadcasts, you can watch the college football games above for free even if you don’t have cable. In most of the country, all you need to watch Alabama vs. Georgia for free (alongside other games) is a digital antenna.

You can buy a digital antenna for about $ 25 or less, and it’s a great investment if you’re a cord-cutter who doesn’t want to pay a monthly cable bill. Once you hook the antenna up to your TV, you’ll be able to watch live and unlimited local broadcasts of free, over-the-air networks, including ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC.

How to Live Stream College Football Games for Free Today

If you don’t have a TV or want to watch college football today online for whatever reason, there are a few options — and some are “free,” though you are generally required to subscribe to some kind of pay TV or streaming service.

In many parts of the country, fans can live stream the Texas vs. Oklahoma game (and later, Clemson vs. Pittsburgh) with the ABC Live Stream or the ABC app. Similarly, you can stream the Northwestern vs. Ohio State game at fox.com/live or the Fox Go app, and you can live stream the Alabama vs. Georgia game using the CBS live stream.

To use any of these live streams, however, you are required to log in with a satellite or cable TV subscription account and password. There’s also another live streaming option for CBS and the Alabama-Georgia SEC Championship game: CBS All Access is a stand-alone service that lets you live stream CBS content, and though it normally costs $ 5.99 per month, you can try it out free during a one-week trial period.

Yet another way to live stream college football games today for free is by signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes local broadcast channels in its packages. In much of the country, subscribers to Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV get CBS, ABC, Fox, and other local channels included with their bundles. And they all offer free trials lasting about a week to new subscribers. So you could register today and watch college football free online, and then have the rest of the week to try out the service before being charged.

Just remember to cancel in time if you don’t want to become a paying subscriber. Basic packages for the streaming TV services above cost $ 40 to $ 45 per month, after the free trial is over.

All the ‘Game of Thrones’ theories and speculations in ‘Fire and Blood’

TwitterFacebook

George R. R. Martin’s new book, Fire and Blood, recounts the 300 years of Targaryen history before the events of Game of Thrones. But it also has plenty of potential fodder for theories directly tied to the time period we know and love on the show. 

But they’re also very well hidden.

“There are a few that are definitely important, but I’m not going to flag them,” Martin told EW in regards to whether the book contained hints. “Readers will have to find them and puzzle out whether they’re hints or red herrings.”

As a in-universe textbook by an Archmaester named Gyldayn, we can’t take everything stated in Fire and Blood as totally accurate. He’s writing down history that happened centuries before he was alive, and a lot of accurate information has been lost to time. Read more…

George RR Martin confirms his new book contains sweet, sweet ‘Game of Thrones’ clues

TwitterFacebook

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan but you haven’t got round to ordering George RR Martin’s epic new Targaryen history Fire and Blood yet, you’re probably consoling yourself with the thought that it can’t really contain that many Ice and Fire hints — it’s set 300 years before Martin’s main Westeros series kicks off, right?

Well, not so fast. The book may predate Daenerys & Co. by several centuries, but it still takes place in the same universe. And judging from a recent interview Martin took part in with Entertainment Weekly, the book does contain hints.

How to Watch the Packers vs. Seahawks ‘Thursday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

The “Thursday Night Football” game tonight should be a great matchup: Packers vs. Seahawks.

The Green Bay Packers, led by one the NFL’s greatest-ever quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers, are 4-4-1 thus far in the 2018 season. The Seattle Seahawks, led by another Super Bowl-winning quarterback in Russell Wilson, have a similar record at 4-5. Both teams are very alive in the hunt to make the playoffs, so tonight’s “Thursday Night Football” game absolutely matters.

Who is the favorite in the Packers vs. Seahawks game tonight? Well, the official betting odds indicate that the Seahawks, playing their home stadium, CenturyLink Field, have a slight edge: Seattle is a 2.5-point favorite to beat Green Bay.

If you want to know how to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks “Thursday Night Football” game — online, or on regular TV — for free, we’ve got you covered. Here are all the options.

What Channel Is the Packers vs. Seahawks Game On?

Tonight’s Packers vs. Seahawks TV broadcast is being handled by Fox, like most “Thursday Night Football” games this season. To watch, simply find your local Fox station on TV.

Most satellite or cable TV subscriptions come with Fox, as well as other major broadcast networks like CBS, ABC, and NBC. If you don’t have cable, you can still watch “Thursday Night Football” in most of the country by connecting your TV to a digital antenna.

A basic digital antenna costs about $ 25 or less, and with it you can watch Fox and other over-the-air networks for free — assuming you live close enough to receive the local signal. What’s more, modern digital antennas offer viewing in hi-def. They’re well worth the minimal investment if you don’t want to pay a monthly cable bill.

How to Live Stream the Packers vs. Seahawks Game for Free

You’ve got several options to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game online — and yes, you can live stream it for free.

First off, as we have reported earlier this season, you can live stream NFL games for free on your phone with two apps. Not every NFL game is available for a free live stream, but you can indeed use one of the apps to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game online on Thursday night.

Here are the details on how to live stream NFL games on your phone:

After downloading the latest versions of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL App, you’ll be able to live stream a host of games on your phone. Specifically, the Yahoo Sports app and NFL App let fans live stream games that are being broadcast locally in their region by networks like CBS and Fox, as well as all nationally broadcast primetime games. That includes “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on the NFL Network and Fox.

Unfortunately, these apps can only be used to live stream NFL games on a phone. You can’t watch games online on a larger screen, like a laptop, tablet, or connected TV, with these apps.

However, Amazon Prime members can live stream the Packers vs. Seahawks game tonight for free on any screen they want. Log in to your Prime account, and you’ll be able to watch “Thursday Night Football” on Amazon Video.

If you are not a Prime member, you could still watch the game and test out the service during a 30-day free trial if you’re a new subscriber. It’s probably not a bad time to sign up for a free Amazon Prime subscription: Members get free two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases, a perk that could come in handy during the winter holiday shopping season. After the free trial, Amazon Prime membership generally costs $ 119 per year or $ 12.99 per month.

Yet another option to live stream “Thursday Night Football” for free is available by way of a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. These services work similarly to cable, in that they bundle dozens of channels together for one monthly fee, and they include live streams of local channels like Fox, NBC, and ABC in most of the country.

These live streaming TV packages generally start at $ 40 to $ 45 per month, but free trials are available for new subscribers. So you could register and watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game for free tonight, and still have the rest of the week to try out the service before deciding if you want to pay. If you don’t, remember to cancel before the free trial period is over.

How to Watch the Titans vs. Cowboys ‘Monday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

The Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys play in the “Monday Night Football” game on November 5, with a kickoff scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

Who is the favorite to win in tonight’s Titans vs. Cowboys game? Both teams are currently 3-4, and the outcome of tonight’s matchup will give the winner a .500 record and increase their chances of making the playoffs, while the loser will stand at a sad 3-5. The Titans vs. Cowboys betting odds indicate that the Cowboys — playing at home at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where they are undefeated thus far in the 2018 NFL season — are 6-point favorites to win.

All “Monday Night Football” games are broadcast on ESPN. It’s a pay channel, of course, included with most satellite and cable TV packages. If you have cable or another pay TV package, all you have to do to watch the Titans vs. Cowboys game is find ESPN.

If you don’t have cable, you can still watch “Monday Night Football” for free — online or on TV — and we’ve laid out the options below.

How to Live Stream the Titans vs. Cowboys for Free

If you are content to watch “Monday Night Football” on the screen on your phone, that’s simple enough to accomplish. Just download the newest version of the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app and you’ll be able to live stream many NFL games for free this season. Specifically, fans can use the apps to live stream all of the Sunday NFL games broadcast locally on CBS and Fox where they live, plus the nationally televised matchups on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” and Fox’s “Thursday Night Football.

If you don’t have cable and still want to watch the Titans vs. Cowboys tonight for free, these apps provide the easiest way to tune in outside of heading over to your neighbor’s house or a local bar to catch the game. The one hiccup is that the apps only provide live streams to phones — and cannot be used for watching online on a tablet, laptop, or connected TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online

If you want to live stream the Cowboys vs. Titans game for free on a screen that’s larger than your smartphone, consider registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its bundle of channels.

Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN with their basic packages, and they all offer new subscribers free trials that last about a week. So, if you just wanted to live stream “Monday Night Football” tonight without paying for cable, you could register as a new subscriber and check out one of these services.

Basic streaming packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, after the free trial period is over. If you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, be sure to remember to cancel before the free trial ends.

Which streaming TV service is best for cord-cutters? And which streaming TV service is best for NFL fans, and sports fans in general? Each service has a different roster of channels, so the answer depends on what you like to watch in your household. Fubo TV is a streaming TV service that’s marketed most heavily to sports fans, but it does not include ESPN in packages — so you can’t use it for live streaming “Monday Night Football.”

Our advice is to check out what channels and perks are included with each service, and then look closely at the price points. As mentioned, each service comes with a free trial, so you could certainly try out more than one and see which option works best for you and your budget.

How Basketball’s Fight Over Racial Equality Remade the Game

Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast

Dr. James Naismith’s final student before he retired from the University of Kansas was John McLendon, the pioneer of fast-break basketball, the full-court press, and the four corners offense. Yet McLendon never received the credit he deserved, because the majority of his work was accomplished at historically black colleges and universities when basketball was still segregated in the United States.

Long before civil rights legislation began to rid America of the scourge of segregation, McLendon was utilizing basketball to break down racial barriers. In March 1944, McLendon orchestrated a “secret game” between his team, North Carolina College for Negroes (now North Carolina Central University), and a collection of white former college basketball stars from Duke University Medical School, who had handily beaten the Duke varsity team in a scrimmage. McLendon planned the game for a Sunday morning, when most people would be in church. The medical students borrowed cars from friends and drove a circuitous route to the school to avoid being detected, arriving with their jackets pulled over their heads. They hustled into a locked gym, where McLendon’s Eagles trounced them 88–44. There were no spectators.

“Coach Mac” went on to mentor countless African American coaches, among them Southern University coach Ben Jobe, Clarence “Big House” Gaines (who led Winston-Salem State University to a Division II NCAA championship in 1967 on the strength of a young guard named Earl Monroe), and former Georgetown coach John Thompson, who became the first African American coach to win a Division I championship.

Here’s How to Apply For 9 Top Game Shows So You Can Win Cash & Prizes

Participating in a game show is an easy and fun way to make extra money. Some are tougher to get on than others, but by registering for all of them, you can significantly increase your chances of becoming a contestant.

For that reason, we’ve put together a list of nine of the most popular game shows and how you can audition for each one.

1. “Jeopardy!”

How to Audition: The first step to getting on “Jeopardy” is to take the online test. They’re are only held on certain dates, and upcoming tests are announced on the show and on its website, Jeopardy.com. Online tests are offered separately for each of the following age groups: adults, college students (full-time undergrads with no previous bachelor’s degrees) and teens 13 through 17 years old.

If you perform well on the online test (“Jeopardy” won’t tell you your score), you will be asked to audition at a local testing facility. After more testing and a personality interview with producers, you will be added to the pool of available contestants.

Who gets on: Smarties who are willing to participate in an awkward 15-second interview with Alex Trebek after the first commercial break.

Website: https://www.jeopardy.com/be-on-j/faqs

2. “Wheel of Fortune”

How to Audition: Last year, over a million people requested the chance to audition for “Wheel of Fortune” and fewer than 600 people were selected to appear on the show. The first step to auditioning is to register on the Wheel’s website. They will notify you when the “Wheelmobile,” the traveling audition bus, is in your area.

From the show’s website: “Thousands of fans fill out applications and gather in front of the stage with a traveling version of the famous Wheel and Puzzle board. Applications are drawn at random throughout the event, calling individuals on stage in groups of five to participate in a brief interview, play a version of the “Wheel of Fortune” speed-up round and win special show-themed prizes. The most promising candidates are invited back to participate in final auditions for the show, usually held at a later date in the Wheelmobile host city. At the final auditions, Contestant Coordinators select the individuals who will appear on the show.”

Who gets on: Adults, college undergraduates and high school teenagers.

Website: https://www.wheeloffortune.com/be-a-contestant/

3. “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”

How to Audition: You can register to audition on the show’s website. To become a “Millionaire” contestant you must first pass the written test. If you do, you’ll then need to undergo a personal interview with a representative of the show. If you pass the audition process, you will be placed in the contestant pool and available for selection to play the game on a future show.

Who gets on: Smarties who are already a little rich. Seriously. You’ll need to pay for your own travel arrangements to Las Vegas in order to be on this show.

Website: http://www.dadt.com/millionaire/auditions/

4. “The Price is Right”

How to Audition: Contestants are usually chosen from among the ticket holders at each taping held in Los Angeles. Tickets are usually released six weeks in advance of the taping date. You can apply for free tickets on the website. You can also grab tickets at ThePriceIsRightLive.com if the show is on the road. Tickets for the traveling show will cost you, however. Who Gets On: Peppy adults who will jump up and down after winning a new vacuum cleaner.

Website: http://on-camera-audiences.com/shows/The_Price_is_Right

5. “Idiotest”

How to Audition: “Idiotest” is produced by the Game Show Network. Casting for all of GSN’s shows are announced on the front page of their website. They usually start casting just prior to the start of the season. To be a contestant, create an account on the website to sign up for available shows!Who Gets On: 80% of the 17 people who watch the Game Show Network

Website: https://www.gsntv.com/casting/

6. “Family Feud”

How to Audition: To have your chance at being next to Steve Harvey’s mustache, you can apply for tryouts online. Tryouts are mock run-throughs of the show and vary by location. If you’re not near one of the filming locations, you may also send in a recorded video.

Who Gets On: Enthusiastic families of five who can scream “Good answer!,” even when the answers are terrible.

Website: https://www.familyfeud.com/audition/

7-9. “Amazing Race,” “Survivor,” “Big Brother”

How to Audition: These are all reality game shows produced by CBS. The audition process varies a bit for each show, but the first step is to visit CBS’s casting website. Usually, you will be asked to send a video that showcases your personality along with a completed application. If you are selected for an interview, you’ll have to travel (on your own dime) to the nearest interview city. Applicants may also choose to attend an open casting in person, but are not required to do both for the preliminary application.

Who Gets On: Richard Hatch. People with a passport.

The President Used a Game of Thrones Meme. The Cast Wasn’t Having It

President Donald Trump invoked Game of Thrones on Twitter Friday to promote his Administration’s announcement on reimposing sanctions on Iran.

Appearing to take inspiration from the HBO series’ golden letters, ominous grey sky and signature tagline (“Winter is coming”), Trump took to Twitter to say “Sanctions Are Coming,” referencing an earlier announcement by the Trump Administration that it would reimpose all U.S. sanctions on Iran that had been lifted through the 2015 nuclear deal from when Barack Obama was President.

HBO responded quickly in statement released to Entertainment Weekly, saying, “We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.”

Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the show, was also quick to comment, tweeting “Not today.” Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, commented with a simple “Ew.”

Creators and several cast members from the show have made their feelings about the President known in the past.

“I think Joffrey is now the king in America,” George R.R. Martin, who created the books on which the show is based, told Entertainment Weekly in 2017. “And he’s grown up just as petulant and irrational as he was when he was 13 in the books.”

Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow, once called the President a “con artist.”

The President’s tweet follows his speech at the United Nations in September, when he called on world leaders to cut purchases of Iran’s oil. Friday’s news also marks the second round of sanctions the U.S. has reimposed since Trump announced in May that the U.S. would withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, which had been a frequent target of critique from Trump before and during his presidency. The sanctions will affect finance, shipping and energy sectors in Iran, as well as, with limited exceptions, third-party countries that import Iranian oil or do business with Iranian financial institutions.

For Trump’s detractors, the critical reactions were swift.

Joe Jonas wins Halloween as fiancée Sophie Turner’s ‘Game of Thrones’ character

TwitterFacebook

Joe Jonas won hearts and Halloween itself on Saturday night with one of the best one-sided couple costumes we’ve ever seen.

Going as the ultimate stan of his bride-to-be, Sophie Turner, Jonas attended a costume party dressed as Sansa Stark, her Game of Thrones character. Meanwhile, the actress behind Sansa went as… an elephant. Perfection.

In case the iconic red wig wasn’t a dead giveaway, Jonas even posted a video of his dramatic entrance as Sansa with the Game of Thrones credits music playing in the background of his Insta story. We’re not sure if it was a great idea to also add a GIF of Sansa’s almost-husband, Tyrion Lannister, to the video — but at least Jon looks like he approves. Read more…

Dodgers Win Game 3 in the World Series’ Longest Game Ever

(LOS ANGELES) — Brian Dozier swung bananas from a rope over the dugout railing.How appropriate. The longest game in World Series was bananas.Twenty-three players on each team, including nine pitchers.

Eighteen innings — four more than any of the previous 662 World Series games.

Seven hours, 70 minutes — 1:39 longer than any Series game played before.

Walker Buehler threw the first pitch in autumn twilight at 5:10 p.m.

Max Muncy homered on the 561st and last at 12:30 a.m., when most of America was asleep and even fans up in Alaska and out in Hawaii were struggling to stay up.

Ernie Banks would have been happy — the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox filled his oft-said desire: Let’s play two! “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” was played twice, during the seventh-inning stretch and the 14th inning elongation.

“It was an amazing game,” Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig said. “I’m a little tired. But we’re ready to come back tomorrow.”

Then he looked at his watch and corrected himself.

“In a couple of hours,” Puig said.

Live from Hollywood: the Late Late Late Show: The Dodgers’ dramatic, draining, dizzying 3-2 victory Friday night cut their World Series deficit to 2-1.

“I think my beard got about 3 inches longer,” said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, whose red whiskers already were Santa length.

Soccer ends after 120 minutes and is decided by penalty kicks.

Even Wimbledon is instituting fifth-set tiebreakers next year when tied 12-12 after John Isner’s 70-68 first-round triumph over Nicolas Mahut in 2010 and Isner’s 26-24 semifinal defeat to Kevin Anderson this year.

No U.S. major team sport DOUBLED the length of a game in its championship. Notably, a Boston team has been involved in the longest title match in all four of the major sports.

Only once has the Super Bowl gone to overtime, with only an extra 11:02 needed for New England’s win over Atlanta in 2017 .

There have been only two NBA Finals games needing the extra 15 minutes of three overtimes, Boston’s victory over Phoenix in 1976and the Suns’ win over Chicago in 1993 . The longest Stanley Cup final matchup was Edmonton’s win over Boston in the 1990 opener, a three-overtime affair requiring an extra 55:13.

“You look up and see the 18th inning, and you’re like, holy cow, where did the game go?” Muncy said. “Those last nine innings or so just kind of blended together.”

The Dodgers munched on peanut butter and banana sandwiches provided by a team employee, and hung the bananas to produce fruitful luck — harkening back to the rally banana credited by Enrique Hernandez for helping end a 35-inning scoreless streak three years ago.

“You want to have fun with it,” said Rich Hill, the Dodgers scheduled Game 4 starter before a middle-of-the-night change to TBA to match Boston’s probable pitcher.

Clayton Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award winner with a .163 career batting average, pinch hit in the 17th inning and lined out.

“Starting pitchers are used to getting their spikes on, but nothing usually comes to fruition,” Kershaw said.

Muncy nearly won the game in the 15th inning, pulling a long drive off Nathan Eovaldi that hooked just to the foul side of the right-field pole . Eovaldi, Boston’s scheduled Game 4 starter, was starting his seventh inning of relief when Muncy hit an opposite-field drive to left-center for the Dodgers’ fourth World Series walkoff hit. He joined Cookie Lavagetto, whose double in 1947’s fourth game ended a no-hit bid by the Yankees’ Bill Bevens ; Jackie Robinson, whose 10th-inning single in 1956’s sixth game scored Jim Gilliam ; and Kirk Gibson, whose two-out, two-run pinch homer off Oakland’s Dennis Eckersley won the 1988 opener .

“All I know is we’re feeling pretty good about ourselves right now,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said.

Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler allowed two hits over seven shutout innings and left with a one-run lead provided by Joc Pederson’s third-inning homer off Rick Porcello.

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s eighth-inning homer against Kenley Jansen tied the score, Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger threw out Ian Kinsler at the plate in the 10th to keep the game going, the Red Sox went ahead on pitcher Scott Alexander’s throwing error in the 13thand the Dodgers tied it 2-2 on Kinsler’s two-out throwing error from second base in the bottom half .

After hitting .297 in winning the first two games at cozy, chilly Fenway Park, Boston was 5 for 57 at the plate in the warmth of Dodger Stadium— including 0 for 28 in the top four slots of the batting order.

“This was a gut-wrenching game for both sides,” Muncy said. “Their guys are banged up, our guys are banged up.”
