First Look: House Of Cards Season 3 Trailer

First Look: House Of Cards Season 3 Trailer

Some of the biggest buzz surrounding last night’s Oscar’s broadcast had little to do with Neal Patrick Harris in tighty-whities, John Travolta heavy-petting Idina Menzel’s face or John Legend and Common’s moving musical performance to their Oscar-winning song, “Glory.” Today, many people are talking about the President of the United States.

Last week, the third season of the critically acclaimed drama was “accidentally” … Continue reading

Clay Aiken, perhaps the most famous second-place finalist on American Idol (he was runner-up to Ruben Studdard in Season 2), came in second once again yesterday when North Carolina voters chose not to elect him to the House, opting to stick with incumbent representative Renee Ellmers.
