What We Missed: Tuesday July 23rd


Sir Patrick Stewart is set to return as iconicStar Trek character Jean-Luc Picard for a new CBS All Access series. We got a brief peak at Star Trek: Picard via a teaser released back in May, but on Saturday Stewart was on hand at Comic-Con to present a full-length trailer.

Beyond confirming the return of fellow Star Trek actors Brent Spiner (Data), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh), Marina Sirtis (Troi), and Jonathan Frakes (Riker), the trailer also offers the first details of the series’ plot. It seems that 17 years after departing Starfleet at the rank of admiral, Picard has assembled a new crew to aid a mysterious young woman with a connection to the Borg

After playing just two rounds in the past month,Tiger Woods said he needs a break and will head back to Florida to rest up for the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs.

An admirable 1-under-par 70 that included bogeys on the final two holes at Royal Portrush on Friday meant a disappointing end to The Open and the major season for Woods, who after the jubilation of winning the Masters in April has played just four tournaments with little success.

Easy come, easy go” — that’s a phrase that has never applied to “Bohemian Rhapsody,” one of the most enduring recordings of the 20th century. The Queen classic just set a record by becoming the first music video released in the 1970s, or any time prior to the ’90s, to cross the billion-views mark on YouTube.

To commemorate the milestone, the two remaining original members of the group, Brian May and Roger Taylor, have teamed up with Universal Music and YouTube/Google for some fresh iterations of the 44-year-old single and video. One is a newly digitally remastered version of the original clip, which premiered on “Top of the Pops” in England in November 1975.
