It’s three weeks into the NFL season – how’s your team doing? Of course, football is in the air these days but there’s a lot else happening over the weekend. The 64 Annual Emmy Awards honors excellence in primetime television and this year, cable is dominant. HBO leads all nominations and the two most nominated shows were on AMC and F/X. If you’re a music fan, you can catch Prince in Chicago next week for a few rare dates, but this weekend, New Edition is back on the road and Anthony Hamilton and Estelle are making their rounds during their soulful road appearances. Here’s what’s happening in your area this weekend.

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
