  6. Rick Kriseman's administration lashed in St. Pete sewage report

    Water

    ST. PETERSBURG — A state report places much of the blame for the city's 200-million gallon sewage spill crisis on the administration of Mayor Rick Kriseman.

What to watch this weekend: 'Ozark,' 'Insecure,' 'Midnight, Texas'

This side of Hell: Midnight, Texas

I don't know about you, but I've been itching for a good supernatural show (besides Supernatural) since The Vampire Diaries and True Blood ended. Enter Midnight, Texas on NBC. It's got all the great supernatural characters (vampires, angels, psychics, ghosts) and some new ones I don't have a name for yet (is it a were-tiger?). The series follows Manfred (Francois Arnaud), a powerful psychic who finds safety in Midnight, a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. He finds friends in Bobo (Dylan Bruce), the local pawn shop owner; Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley), a witch who owns a Wiccan shop; Olivia (Arielle Kebbel), a talented assassin with a store of weapons to match; Joe (Jason Lewis), a sweet angel who knows quite a lot of secrets; Lemuel (Peter Mensah), a wise vampire; Creek (Sarah Ramos), an aspiring writer; and the Rev. Emilio Sheehan (Yul Vazquez), who gets a little crazy during the full moon. Oh, and the town sits on a veil between the living and hell. Sounds like a great vacation destination. 10 p.m. Monday, NBC....
