The three-night, six-hour scripted event (airing tonight, tomorrow and Jan. 27) follows a defiant and radical group of young men — Sam Adams (Ben Barnes), John Adams (Henry Thomas), Paul Revere (Michael Raymond-James), John Hancock (Rafe Spall) and Dr. Joseph Warren (Ryan Eggold) — as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation.
A long-standing rivalry gets renewed today at New York's Madison Square Garden, where Jahlil Okafor and the Duke Blue Devils face D'Angelo Harrison and the St. John's Red Storm in these teams' first meeting in three years. The second-ranked Blue Devils can fill it up with the best of them, thanks to the exploits of freshman center Okafor and senior guard Quinn Cook, while the No. 15 Red Storm boast a tough front court led by junior forward Chris Obekpa.
Thanks to a lockout and a Winter Olympics, it's been three years since the NHL last played an All-Star Game, but today it's back with a vengeance as hockey's best players vie in the 60th event at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. This year's game continues the fantasy draft format that debuted in 2011, in which two team captains (as voted by participating players) draft players for their team. Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are expected to be among the draftees.
