    Before you know it, fall will be here and it will be time to go back to school.  For parents that means stocking up on notebooks, number two pencils, and back to school clothes, all of which usually take a big chunk out of a family's budget.  So, just how much do parents will pay to send their kids off to school this year?More >>

(CNN) - A&E networks has put one of their most popular characters on indefinite hiatus.  The patriarch of the series "Duck Dynasty" has been suspended from filming after his comments about same-sex relationships in a recent GQ interview.  In the January issue of GQ, Phil Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity.  Some say Robertson was quoting widely supported church positions on sin not just homosexuality.  Wilson Cruz and other gay rights advocates are hitting back hard, citing growing acceptance of same-sex marriage and relationships suggesting Robertson is ignorant, bigoted, or both.  

The Federal Communications Commission is thinking about scrapping an old rule about what sporting events are shown on TV.  The so-called "blackout" rule prevents television outlets from airing games in a home team's market if the game is not sold-out.  The rule was designed to discourage local fans from watching games at home rather than going to the game.
T he blackout rule mostly applies to NFL games, but few games these days don't sell out, so the rule rarely applies.  The FCC is asking for public feedback on whether the rule is still necessary.
The NFL released a statement saying it "strongly opposes" any change to the rule.

A new revealing documentary about Mitt Romney is about to be released exclusively on Netflix.
The director of the movie spent six years following the former presidential candidate and his family and was able to capture some of his most private moments.  The film called "Mitt" will start streaming on January 24th.

According to Forbes, Dwayne Johnson is the highest grossing actor of 2013.  The magazine says his films have earned 1.3 billion dollars at the box office over the past 12 months.   
Robert Downey junior came in at number two.
