This week on It Was a Thing on TV we're bringing you all the sports, all the specials when lit and all the action on Tatooine.   First, CBS' ratings were languishing in the late 1980s and early 1990s, so they spent a lot of money to acquire almost every major sporting event of 1990, plus the Winter Olympics of 1992 and 1994.  Most of the events weren't that thrilling, the return on investment wasn't what was expected, and the Dream Season of 1990 was closer to a nightmare.   Next, we have our second (and likely last) edition of the pinball machine show.  We talk about 9 more TV-themed pinball machines, mainly from the last 15 years.   Finally, in the show's first attempt with Stream Lounge, Greg and Chico do a livewatch of the first episode on their first broadcast of The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+.   Remember to follow us on our socials @itwasathingontvpodcast on Facebook and @itwasathingontv on Instagram and Twitter.   Timestamps 0:40 - CBS Sports '90 1:45:30 - Classic Commercial Break 1:49:06 - TV Themed Pinball Part 2 2:43:59 - The Jenny Position Commercial 2:45:29 - The Book of Boba Fett Premiere

Molly Bloom (@ImMollyBloom), Author, Podcaster, Entrepreneur and subject of the book and movie “Molly's Game” joins Sports Business Radio to share her incredible story and discuss her latest projects. Molly Bloom, a world-class skier who comes from a very accomplished family, was severely injured during a qualifying event for the Winter Olympics and her skiing career ended. Instead of following her original plan to attend law school, Bloom moved to Los Angeles where she would eventually run card games for movie stars, investment bankers, pro athletes and wealthy individuals. Buy in for these games started at $250K and players would win or lose $100M. Bloom was targeted by the Italian mob and eventually arrested by 17 FBI agents. Molly tells Sports Business Radio how she rebuilt her life after losing everything but her freedom, how she has battled drug and alcohol addiction and how she learned how to be an entrepreneur who never settled for rejection. She turned her remarkable story into an asset which was made into a movie, “Molly's Game”, by award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (and stars Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba and Kevin Costner). Bloom shares the story with us about the struggle to find a studio and screenwriter/director for “Molly's Game" before Sorkin signed on. Bloom also shares details for her new podcast “Torched”, which debits January 18 on podcast platforms everywhere. “Torched" is a podcast about the heat of competition. On Season 1, Bloom tells stories of scandal, controversy, and redemption on the biggest world stage: the Olympics.

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 18th, 2022. Brace yourself, here's a story about how more vaccine shots may not always be the answer. An Israeli hospital's preliminary research suggests a fourth dose of vaccine adds only limited defense against Omicron. That makes things a little tricky politically because Israel just started giving people over age 60 fourth shots. The US Surgeon General says don't get too enamored of the good news you've been hearing. He says the Omicron wave started later in some parts of the country, so we shouldn't be looking for a peak in those places, and the next few weeks will be tough. He says the problem is we're running out of healthcare workforce and the crush of COVID patients is still expected to get substantially higher. Even where there are still doctors on the job, the stress on the system means those doctors are starting to get worn out and make mistakes. That's what's happening in England. A survey shows 25% of doctors in the NHS are so tired that their ability to treat patients has become impaired. In at least seven cases, patients were actually harmed. Brace yourself again, an honest admission from a government bureaucrat. The Director of the CDC told the Wall Street Journal the messaging and communication around the pandemic should have been clearer. She said, "I think what I have not conveyed is the uncertainty in a lot of these situations." Going to the Winter Olympics in Beijing? No you're not. Tickets won't be sold to the general public in response to the pandemic. However, if you're a friend of Communist Chinese authorities, you might still have tickets distributed to you. But even then, you have to be a resident of China's mainland and in compliance with COVID countermeasures. In the United States, cases were up 98%, deaths are up 57%, and hospitalizations are up 61% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since January 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Indiana, New Mexico, Michigan, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. There are 23,591,203 active cases in the United States. The five areas with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Puerto Rico 159%. The U.S. Virgin Islands 151%. Alabama 144%. Louisiana 141%. And Florida 129%. The top 10 areas with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: West Feliciana, LA. Pitkin, CO. Teton, WY. Greensville, VA. Covington, MS. Tom Green, TX. Uvalde, TX. Kodiak Island Borough, AK. Rolette, ND. And Yazoo, MS. There have been at least 851,449 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 78.5%, Rhode Island at 77.8%, and Maine at 76.8%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are Wyoming at 48.2%, Alabama at 48.4%, and Mississippi at 49.1%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 62.8%. Globally, cases were up 102% and deaths up 17% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending up since October 15. There are now over 56 million active cases around the world, at 56,773,810.

The run up to the Games has been challenging – Covid has made competition extremely difficult for athletes and there have been diplomatic rows over China's human rights records - but who are our medal prospects? Chloe Tilley speaks to Georgina Harland, Britain's first ever female Chef de Mission and Lizzy Yarnold, Britain's most successful Winter Olympian. On Wednesday afternoon, 23-year-old school teacher Ashling Murphy was murdered while jogging along the banks of the Grand Canal in Tullamore, Ireland. It is believed that she was assaulted and killed by a man acting alone. The case has shocked the nation and revived concerns about women's safety in public spaces in Ireland and the UK. We speak to Irish Times reporter Jade Wilson and veteran activist Ailbhe Smyth, who spoke at a vigil for Ashling outside Irish parliament. Women diagnosed with cervical cell changes following cervical screening can be unprepared for the experience - they can feel ashamed, isolated and frightened, that's according to new research by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust. Kate Sanger is head of policy, from the Trust. In a recent interview on Woman's Hour one guest talked about the limits having a child has placed on her and said she'd “make a better father than mother”. We explore what motherhood and fatherhood mean and the gender roles parents take on in society today. Lawyer Lucy McGrath is the biological mother of a six year old. She's also her family's main bread winner and known as mum. Her wife is mummy and the full time care giver. Do same sex relationships model alternative parenting styles or simply replicate the same power dynamics in a different guise? Lucy joins Emma Barnett to discuss the issues with the academic Dr Charlotte Faircloth. £29.4 billion was invested into UK tech companies in 2021. A record amount. Yet female founded companies only saw 1.1% of it. Down from 2.4% in 2020. Why are female run businesses finding it so hard to get investment funding? Debbie Wasskow OBE, entrepreneur and founder of Allbright, and Samira Ann Qassim, founder of Pink Salt Ventures, explain some of the problems women founders face when starting-up businesses - including finding funding.

It's been described as the world's first criminal case brought over state-led torture in Syria. A court in Koblenz, Germany, gave a life sentence to Anwar Raslan. He's a former Syrian colonel who'd been linked to crimes against humanity at a notorious prison in Damascus during his country's civil war. Raslan was found guilty of mass torture and killings at a detention centre known as Branch 251. Also in the programme: British and Dutch athletes heading to Beijing for next month's Winter Olympics have been warned about taking their own personal mobile phones with them over fears they could be spied on by the Chinese government; and Ronnie Spector, lead singer of the 1960s all-girl group The Ronettes, has died at the age of 78.
