Who you got in this weekend’s Super Bowl? It’s shaping up to be an epic battle of veteran vs. newcomer with Peyton Manning calling shots for the Broncos and Russell Wilson leading the surging Seahawks. You might have heard of a certain cornerback named Richard Sherman? Well, he may get another chance to go viral if the Seahawks win. Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas gets the Lifetime biopic treatment this weekend with Regina King on board as her mom. It’s just in time for the 2014 Winter Games which starts on Tuesday. And if you’re in the cold part of the country, you can warm up with Charlie’s Wilson or Murphy, both doing shows this weekend.
