    In the wake of a bombshell story about Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election - and persistent allegations that President Donald Trump's campaign may have colluded with Russia to win - Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to accuse someone else of collusion: his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

    BOSTON — You might want a bigger boat, but you probably don't need better odds.

    FILE - In this Sept. 13, 2012 file photo, Captain Brett McBride places his hand on the snout of a great white shark while scientists collect blood, tissue samples and attach tracking devices on the research vessel Ocearch off the coast of Chatham, Mass. Before release, the nearly 15-foot, 2,292-pound shark was named Genie for famed shark researcher Eugenie Clark. Great white sharks are making their annual return to Cape Cod, rattling some boaters and beachgoers. Yet the chances of an attack resulting in serious injury or death are infinitesimally small.

Alison Brie, left, and Betty Gilpin in GLOW on Netflix.

What to watch this weekend: 'GLOW,' second season of 'Preacher'

Ready to rumble: GLOW

Four words: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Yes, the fluorescent, body-slamming soap opera GLOW starring a cast of exaggerated characters is back, this time as a fictionalized Netflix series. Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men) stars as Ruth, a down-on-her-luck actor struggling to make it in Hollywood. She slowly but surely finds her calling with GLOW, a new TV show created by B-movie director Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron). Alongside the best friend she scorned (Betty Gilpin, Nurse Jackie) and a dozen other ragtag women, Ruth becomes a showstopping wrestling character. The quirky comedy comes from the creators of Orange Is the New Black and features plenty of big hair, blue eye shadow and neon leotards and is punctuated by '80s hits like Patty Smyth's The Warrior and Tears for Fears' Head Over Heels. Can we please get a soundtrack, Netflix? Now streaming on Netflix....
