SCTV produced their shows on a budget of $3000 per episode. That proves you don't need to spend much money to get good quality.

Florida man’s father helped give birth to him. That news sent pizza flying, cops say

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of a domestic battery in the 2400 block of Hoover Drive in Holiday, Fox 13 News reports. When they arrived, there was a slice of pizza on a chair, with cheese and sauce on the floor nearby, according to an arrest report.
