A Fox 5 executive producer played good Samaritan this morning , helping a family escape from a burning home.
Amy Oates told her own station that she was driving by this morning on her way to work and saw smoke coming out of hte back of the home. She called 911 but became worried because nobody was departing the house.
She and another driver who had also stopped by knocked on doors and windows to get the family’s attention. Eventually, the father answered and they were able to usher the family of three to safety.
Former North Georgia resident and “Lost” vet Josh Holloway starred in a new CBS drama last night “Intelligence.” Critics pilloried the show but it held 80 percent of the viewers from lead-in “NCIS,” which is excellent. It drew 16.6 million viewers compared to 20.65 million for top-rated “NCIS” (which features Pauley Perrette, a former metro Atlantan.)
The show did skew a little on the old side but that’s pretty typical of CBS dramas.
Atlanta-based Up Network will air the 29th annual Stellar Gospel Awards on January 18 in Nashville. It will be hosted of Sherri Shepherd and Atlanta’s Rickey Smiley.
