It’s Time For, O-J, Behind Bars

This should be interesting.

ESPN announced over the weekend that they've decided to televise O-J SIMPSON's parole hearing in Carson City, Nevada, this Thursday --live.

They’re not the only ones.  Close to 30 news organizations have registered to cover the hearing at either Carson City or the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada, where The Juice is currently behind bars.

O-J is scheduled to appear by videoconference from the prison, with four parole commissioners in Carson City at 12- noon our time, again, this Thursday. 


A Lot of People Watched the "Game of Thrones" Premiere 

The Season Seven premiere of "Game of Thrones" attracted a record 16.1 million viewers within 12 hours. 

That includes the initial telecast, plus streaming and DVR numbers.  And it will get a lot bigger as more data comes in.

It's on pace to be 50% bigger than the Season Six premiere, which ultimately attracted 25.7 million viewers WITH late streaming and DVR numbers factored in.

The gap between Seasons Six and Seven was the show's longest and apparently, NO ONE lost interest.  Instead, it just gave people time to catch up on the show, and to hype the demand for the next chapter. 

Sunday's episode was also the show's most-Tweeted about episode of all time.
