With the release of the NCAA basketball bracket, March Madness is now in full swing, and the Obama administration is hoping to capitalize on the excitement that will ensue. The White House released a new advertisement targeting college basketball junkies, which features University of Connecticut women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma and University of North Carolina men's basketball coach Roy Williams. The advertisement shows Auriemma and Williams explaining their "Sweet 16" bracket of reasons that people should enroll in the Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as "Obamacare."
The Affordable Care Act website has a March Madness-style bracket of Internet "gifs" for people to vote for. The gifs explain the best reasons to sign up for the Affordable Care Act.

With the 2013-2014 season coming to an end soon, developments for next fall's pilot season have already begun. One trend to watch is that more pilots led by black actors are in the works this season.
When television first became popular and up until recent years, it was rare to see a minority face as a lead actor for prime time show. With ABC's "Scandal" breaking barriers by having the first black actress nominated for an Emmy since 1995, we are starting to see a shift in what our weekly television shows look like.
FOX Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly said back in January, "I see the shift in the way people are conceiving the roles and casting them."
