TV shows over time

What ever happened to Gizmodo: The Gadget Testers?  There was a premiere episode on BBC America last spring, and then nothing.

You can watch a promo for it below.  The show featured lots of pasty guys in sunglasses, and one girl who was cackling maniacally for some strange reason.

John Cook: A scumbag?

The people at Twitchy are not fans of John Cook.  On Friday, they referred to him as a scumbag, a douchebag, and a sleazy jerk, all because he'd written a vulgar tweet aimed at NRO writer Kathryn Lopez.  Of course, they weren't the only ones claiming to be offended.

Twitchy likes to act as a social-media shaming site, and their views tend to be conservative.  Last November, they criticized Erin Gloria Ryan when she wrote an insensitive tweet following the death of actor Paul Walker.  She had tweeted out: "Why couldn't it be Scott Walker?"
