State Rep. Caught On Camera Admitting She Used Her Vote To Exact Personal Revenge

Georgia state Representative Betty Price was caught on video admitting she voted against her state’s proposed Distracted Driving Bill — which would make it illegal to hold phones or other electronic devices while driving — because she wanted to exact revenge on her colleagues for voting against her, according to a report from Wsbtv 9.

On Friday, the station released covert video taken of Price — who previously created controversy for her remarks about quarantining people with HIV — telling a widow whose husband had been killed by a distracted driver that she voted against the bill as “a protest because they ignored my bill last year.

Fox News Host Accuses Hollywood of ‘Interference,’ ‘Obstruction’ in Georgia Election (Video)

Fox News’ “The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld accused Hollywood of “interference” and obstruction” in Georgia’s special congressional election on Tuesday night, comparing Hollywood celebrities to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Republican Handel beat Democrat Ossoff to win a high-stakes, high-cost Georgia race to fill Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, which Tom Price vacated to become Trump’s Health Secretary. Gutfeld pointed out that 7,000 people from California donated to Ossoff, while he received cash from only 800 residents of his own district.

Rob Riggle joins comedy show 'World Series Of Dating' on BBC Three
Us comedian Rob Riggle has joined BBC Three's new dating show World Series Of Dating. The eight-part series, which mixes reality television and scripted comedy and borrows conventions from the world of sport, focuses on women meeting men for first dates.

Riggle has signed up to play American commentator and "legendary dater" Doyle MacManus, while his British counterpart James Chetwynd-Talbot - who is described as nervous and unlucky in love - will be played by Torchwood's Tom Price.

Rob Riggle to star in BBC3 comedy World Series of Dating

Series will combine reality with scripted comedy and features The Daily Show veteran as a Us correspondent

Us comedian and actor Rob Riggle will star in a new BBC3 comedy that turns dating into a Us-style TV sports show.

World Series of Dating will combine reality with scripted comedy as a series of male contestants attempt to impress a panel of women in "the date zone".

The show will feature a Us-style sports referee, played by newcomer Bentley Kalu, and Riggle as American correspondent Doyle MacManus.

Contestants are members of the public on first dates, but the setup is anything but real, with Torchwood star Tom Price playing the role of UK correspondent James Chetwynd-Talbot and Thaila Zucchi (Star Stories, Balls of Steel) as a touchline reporter.

'Torchwood: Miracle Day' Begins Tonight

It's an exciting day for all the Whovians out there. Tonight at 10 p.m. (Et/Pt), the fourth season of the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood premieres on the Starz network. Dubbed Torchwood: Miracle Day, the new season of this cult favorite is set in America. And to add insult to injury, it won't air on U.K. telly until July 14 — just one more reason for the Brits to hate us Yanks.

For those Philistines not acquainted with this series, Torchwood concerns itself with a group of extraterrestrial hunters from the Torchwood Institute, a covert organization whose purpose is to protect the Earth from alien threats. Returning for this new series is Torchwood leader Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), his partner Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and her husband Rhys Williams (Kai Owen). Other returning characters include PC Andy Davidson, now a sergeant (Tom Price), and Gwen’s parents (William Thomas and

TV Review: Torchwood Miracle Day, 4.1 – “The New World”

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Death takes a holiday.

Imagine that no one dies. Plants and animals continue with their normal life-cycles, but humans don’t. They sustain massive injuries, get blown up, stabbed, burned, what have you, but yet they live and live and live without the great surcease of pain. For some this would be a blessing; time granted to them while surgeons repair damaged bodies. To others it would be a living hell no one should ever endure.

This is the situation the world finds itself in at the start of “The New World,” the first episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day. It’s the fourth series to of the Doctor Who spinoff be produced and the first to be co-produced with the American television network Starz.

As the story opens, we find a man, Oswald Dane (Bill Pullman), about to be executed for the rape and murder of a twelve-year-old girl.

One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging -- they get hurt and sick -- but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight.

Survivors Season Two Premieres Tonight On BBC America

  • ScifiMafia
Hold your tongues if you live in the UK and have already seen this season, but the Us is just now getting the second season of the drama, “Survivors”. This show follows survivors of a deadly flu-like plague as they try to establish a society. The premiere of season two begins tonight on BBC America.

The first season of the show was about gathering the survivors together and exploring what’s left of their world. This season opens with the survivors in conflict with remains of the old government and those trying to establish a new regime.

Check out what the show is about:

Set in the present day, Survivors focuses on the world in the aftermath of a virulent disease that scoured the planet, wiping out 99% of the human race. Only a lonely few are left to start over in a devastated world where everything that was once safe

Views: Survivors (BBC America Series)

What if the end of the world came and you survived it? The new BBC America series Survivors explores just that idea. While it’s being presented as pure sci-fi, near future drama, the elements of horror are inescapable. The series is well acted by players who are relative unknowns outside of the UK (see full series one cast list below). A nod must be given to those who have deftly casted the core group which seems to have just the right amount of tense expectancy about the world as it now is.

The first four hours of the series have only begun to explore the range of emotions any survivor would experience. Imagine the slow realization of the growing deaths around you. In this instance, a rouge virus whose mortality rate is something close to 99% has come for humanity. At least it wasn’t a terror attack or asteroid from space.

What a Difference a Day Makes - Barrowman Finds a Knight To Bear His Standard and Slay Neil Patrick Harris

Who's this now?

Well, this is an interesting twist.

Yesterday, we mentioned that Neil Patrick Harris had taken to his Twitter with a low-key appeal for votes in Man of the Decade, and had mounted what seemed to be a huge lead. Even once John Barrowman engaged via his own Twitter, we though maybe the 42x multiple Nph had in followers might make the race over.

Enter Jonathan Ross, riding on a white stallion, to aid his friend John Barrowman. Jonathan is, for lack of a better comparison for our U.S. readers, a sort of Jay Leno in the UK, except people don't seem to hate him. In fact they love him so much, he's got about 500,000 followers on Twitter. So when he put the story out there that Barrowman was going down to Nph, things took on a life of their own.

Twitter can no longer count the

New Clip from ‘Torchwood: Children of Earth’

Even though its already started in the UK, the third season of the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood is still something we have to wait for and look forward to here in the States. Sadly, even with the wait, we won’t get very many episodes this time around because of the BBC’s decision to only produce a five episode mini-series instead of a full season.

We’re not sure of the logic behind that decision, but at least we’ll still get a new adventure featuring some of our favorite Torchwood characters like Ianto, Gwen and the man himself, Captain jack Harkness. We’ve covered the show before and brought you the first trailer. And now, thanks to the BBC, we’ve got another longer clip to show you — which is about two minute and near the end, pretty creepy and cool.
