 Rudy Giuliani? TV host? Why didn't I think of this? The former mayor/former wouldbe senator/former woudbe prez has dropped the "wouldbes:" He will be host of AMC's new "Mob Week" starting Aug.1; it's a weeklong marathon of classic mob movies..... 

    Per the release:

  Throughout “Mob Week”, New York City's former mayor Rudolph Giuliani will talk in depth about his personal love of these classic films, as well as his connection to real life mobsters. During his time as D.A for the Southern District of New York, Mr. Giuliani indicted eleven organized crime figures, including the heads of New York's so-called “Five Families” on charges including extortion, labor racketeering, and murder for hire. At the time, Time magazine called this “Case of Cases” possibly "the most significant assault on the infrastructure of organized crime since the high command of the Chicago Mafia was swept away in 1943." Eight defendants were found guilty on all counts and subsequently sentenced on January 13, 1987 to hundreds of years of prison time.
