The O.J. Nobody Knew — Read People's July 4, 1994 Cover Story
Thursday’s parole board hearing marks the latest twist in the saga of O.J. Simpson‘s fall from grace, which began in 1994 with the killing of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Prior to the killings, Simpson, now 70, was an American hero, his former prowess on the football field matched by his charm as a celebrity pitchman and actor. But after the slayings, in which Simpson quickly became the suspect, details about rage-filled fights with his ex-wife that were fueled by jealousy began to emerge.

Can losing contestants win 'The Amazing Race' an eighth Emmy?

Can losing contestants win 'The Amazing Race' an eighth Emmy?
Last year, the seven-year winning streak of "The Amazing Race" at the Emmy Awards was halted when "Top Chef" won Best Reality Competition Series. That this CBS staple lost was a surprise in itself but that it was not beaten by ratings powerhouse "American Idol" came as the real shocker.  That hugely popular talent show had never won this award but was thought to have its strongest entry ever with the season finale that included a surprisingly touching tribute to departing judge Simon Cowell. For its 18th edition which begins Sunday, "The Amazing Race" is bringing back 11 teams that fell short of the finish line. Dubbing the season "Unfinished Business," executive producer Bertram van Munster explained to Craig Tomashoff of TV Guide, "We're giving people a second chance. It's the American way."

'Quantum Leap' Movie Could Be In Works

Dr. Sam Beckett may once again put right what once went wrong. This time on the big screen. Former "Quantum Leap" star Scott Bakula told attendees at last weekend's San Diego Comic-Con that his 1990s show could see a rebirth as a film. "Quantum Leap" aired from 1989 to 1993, and has been rerun in syndication from time to time ever since. "Quantum Leap" centered around a scientist who realized he could travel in time through his own lifetime, taking over people, and setting history right. The panel, hosted by TV Guide executive editor Craig Tomashoff, Bakula -- who also made a name as the star of the short-lived "Star Trek: Enterprise" on Upn -- proclaimed his love for his character of Sam Beckett. "This is what I'm known for, and it's a great show to be known for," he said. Donald ...

The Peacock Is Burning

"I think viewers are going to be happy to see this lineup of great new shows that will truly fit the NBC legacy of quality, culturally defining shows."That was Angela Bromstad, president of NBC Entertainment, unveiling the television network's 2009-10 lineup to the media last May. At the heart of that schedule was Jay Leno, who days later hosted his final episode of "The Tonight Show." In a move NBC touted as a coup—and many working in scripted television decried as a harbinger of the end times—Leno agreed to stay with the network and set up shop five nights a week in the 10 p.m. time slot that had traditionally been home to some of TV's best-known dramas. NBC planned to do nothing short of change the way broadcast networks program their schedules, a tradition-rooted process built on viewing habits formed over generations.Oops.Come December, Bromstad
