    In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s coverage of the World Series opener between the Dodgers and Rays averaged 7.2 million total viewers and a Tuesday-topping 1.8 demo rating — though down sharply from the preliminary numbers (11.6 mil/2.9) for last year’s Nationals/Astros Game 1.

ABC | The Bachelorette (4.1 mil.1.1) slipped about 20 percent from last week. Leading out of that, a Supermarket Sweeeeeeep! encore did 1.8 mil and a...

    Joe Biden launched what his campaign is calling the ‘invisible campaign‘ last week in Michigan. This could be why he’s waving at no one when he deplanes. Or he’s waving at the ghost voters he’ll likely use for ballot harvesting. Either way, this video is ridiculously funny because of the woman laughing and giving the play by play analysis . It’s absolute PERFECTION. I’m rolling on the floor laughing! WATCH NOW....

    “They introduce me? Am I on?” Thus began Joe Biden’s speech during a glitchy, stilted “virtual town hall” set in Tampa, Florida so plagued by technical problems that made the former vice president’s event look like it was run by local seniors attempting Zoom for the first time. The YouTube event began with a series of Florida politicians attempting to introduce Biden - when their livestreams worked. Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo’s speech was marred by lag and audio glitches. Rep. Charlie Crist’s (D-Fla.) video abruptly cut out as he was speaking. For a long stretch between speakers, the...

    Orlando, FL – Three Florida abortion facilities with ties to the disgraced abortionist James Scott Pendergraft IV, have recently been placed up for sale. The facilities include EPOC in Orlando, Women’s Center of Ft. Lauderdale, and Women’s Center of Hyde Park in Tampa. Operation Rescue verified that the Tampa and Ft.

Several months later, it was leased to Green Relief, a medicinal marijuana business, which was owned by one of Pendergraft’s former abortion clinic security guards. The marijuana...

    Tom Brady is still finding his way around Tampa Bay. It must be hard to leave home after 20 years. The new Buccaneers quarterback on Thursday acknowledged a report that he accidentally entered the wrong house earlier this month. Brady thought he'd arrived at the residence of Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich but instead went next door to Leftwich's neighbor's, per TMZ. Tampa resident David Kramer told TMZ that Brady walked right through his front door holding duffel bags before realizing he was in the wrong place. "I literally was just sitting here and I watch this tall guy...
