Bill Cosby Update

Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial began yesterday with opening arguments and testimony from Kelly Johnson, who tearfully said that she was drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby in 1996. 

During her cross-examination by the defense, Kelly acknowledged that she never reported the incident to authorities because she was concerned for her job.

More than 50 women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them, but he is only standing trial for allegedly drugging and assaulting one accuser, a woman named Andrea Constand.

Cosby denies the charges, and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.


ESPN Is Bringing Hank Williams Jr. Back to "Monday Night Football" 

ESPN is bringing HANK WILLIAMS JR. and his "Are You Ready for Some Football?" song back to "Monday Night Football"

They dropped him six years ago after he compared President Obama to Hitler . . . but now they say it's the "right time" for him to return.

ESPN said, quote, "Hank Williams Jr. fans told us they missed [his theme song], so we're excited to bring this popular segment back to ESPN for the 2017 NFL season with some new twists."


The Hackers Who Leaked "Orange is the New Black" Have Struck Again 

The hackers who recently leaked almost the entire fifth season of "Orange is the New Black" have struck again, posting eight episodes of ABC's upcoming show "Steve Harvey's Funderdome".

The show is scheduled to debut on Sunday.  The hackers go by the name The Dark Overlord and nobody actually knows if it's a group or just a single person.  But he, or she, or they, offered this message:  Quote, "Time to play another round.  We're following through on our threats as we always do."

"Steve Harvey's Funderdome" is a little like "Shark Tank".  Two people pitch their ideas to a studio audience, which then votes on which one gets their project funded.
