One-time mayoral candidate Bill Thompson is back in the race and not concerned about recent polls that place him in third place.

"I know that I'm doing better than bad public polling. This is also about turnout. Come out and vote for the future of New York City, said Thompson who nearly defeated Michael Bloomberg in 2009.

Enthusiasm in the mayoral race seemed to have fallen off rather quickly.

"The one thing about it is your try to reach out to the issues that face this city. If I don't get to 40 percent, I'm in a run-off," said Thompson.

The NYC Democratic mayoral primary is next Tuesday.

    Singer Constantine Maroulis is back on Broadway in Rock of Ages and he couldn't be more excited. “It's incredible. I think every actor's dream is to create a role that becomes an iconic show all around the world. The show is played for millions of people. To be back on Broadway is a great time,” said Maroulis. The Brooklyn born New Jersey raised performer returned to the role he helped create this summer. The question was never if, but when, he would come back.
