Stand-Up, Video Games and Super Bowl XLIX
By Elise DeVoe
Let's get the big-ticket item out of the way first. The Super Bowl is Sunday and whether you're a Seattle fan, a New England die-hard like me or just like the commercials, you can't deny the scope of football's biggest game. But the action starts way before kickoff with a CNN Super Bowl Special hosted by Rachel Nichols with the help of NFL Hall-of-Famer Dan Marino. Watch a clip from Nichols' sit-down with Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll below and tune in Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET for an inside look at the Super Bowl XLIX.
Let's back up for just a minute. Tonight is the season finale of TNT's Wake Up Call with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
And tomorrow (that's Saturday for all of you keeping track) HBO Comedy presents Mel Brooks Live at the Geffen. The legendary comedian shares personal stories of his childhood in Brooklyn, his television rise to fame, his marriage to Anne Bancroft and more during this hilarious one-man show.
TCM's annual 31 Days of Oscar begins Sunday by looking at Academy Award winners and nominees from the years 1927-1930. Films include Wings (1927), All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) and others.
NBA on TNT continues Thursday when the Los Angeles Clippers take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. You can vote for the players you want to watch on the player cam now.
On the gaming front, Dying Light from Warner Bros. Games is now available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It's an action-packed survival horror game where players must use everything in their power to survive the night. Definitely not for the faint of heart, this game is rated M for Mature.
