In that time slot, CNN pulled in an average of just over 4 million viewers, of whom 1.459 million were in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54, according to early Nielsen Media Research Ratings Data. In second place in both categories was ABC News, which also topped 4 million total average viewers but took in slightly fewer than CNN. In the key demo, ABC News nabbed 980,000 viewers on average. Fox News came next with 3.442 million total average viewers, with 742,000 of them in the key demo. MSNBC commanded 3.066 million total average viewers for a fourth-place finish, but was fifth place in the demo — the cable channel took in 562,000 average viewers, falling behind CBS News, which had a demo total of 682,000.

Penelope Featherington herself conferred the honor Kim Kardashian has been Hollywood royalty for some time now. But, as of Tuesday morning, she’s now Bridgerton royalty as well — so says Penelope Featherington herself. On Tuesday morning, actress Nicola Coughlan, who plays Featherington on Netflix’s hit series “Bridgerton,” tweeted at Kardashian, writing “As the world’s number one @bridgerton Stan does @KimKardashian know that the Kardashians were a massive inspiration for the Featheringtons and we talked about them all the time during our fittings? Because I feel like she should know this.” As it turns out, Kardashian did not know this, and promptly freaked out. “WHAT?!?! I am freaking out!!!!!! This tweet was sent to me on my @bridgerton group chat!” Kardashian tweeted back. “Can I please come to a fitting?!?! It would make my whole life!!!!!! I love you Lady W!!!” Lady W is, of course, shorthand for Lady Whistledown, the “Bridgerton” narrator that was revealed to be Penelope Featherington in the Season 1 finale. By the end of the conversation, Kardashian had more than just an invite to a fitting. She had her own title.

Once again, Coughlan was happy to help. “Why of course, Duchess Kardashian of Calabasas!” Coughlan wrote. “Lady Whistledown is happy to declare you the season’s true incomparable.” Check out their full conversation below.

Fresh Acqusitions LLC, the parent company of six restaurant chains with locations across 27 states, has just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. While the filing will save two of its brands, most of them will likely close up shop for good.According to court documents reviewed by Restaurant Business, the company entered the pandemic with as many as 90 restaurants under the brands Ryan's, Old Country Buffet, HomeTown Buffet, Fire Mountain, and Furr's, all of which are buffet chains, and Tahoe Joe's, a steakhouse chain in California. All but six locations of Tahoe Joe's are currently operational.RELATED: This Once Fast-Growing Burger Chain Is Close to DisappearingThrough the bankruptcy process, the company plans to preserve two of its brands—Tahoe Joe's and a newer, redesigned version of Furr's, which was unveiled last year. It also plans a sale of Furr's intellectual property."We are looking forward to emerging from bankruptcy as a stronger operator with a focus on the Tahoe Joe's and Furr's AYCE Marketplace banners," Jason Kemp, CEO of VitaNova, a restaurant operator which is providing financing to Fresh Acquisitions to get it through the process, said in a statement. "These great brands serving great food will create a platform for future growth."However, the future of its remaining four buffet-style chains is uncertain. One likely scenario is that they simply won't reopen any of the locations, and their fate further illustrates the pandemic struggles of buffet-type operators, in particular. Golden Corral's second-largest franchisee recently filed for bankruptcy, while the beloved healthy buffet Souplantation closed up shop only two months into the pandemic.For more, check out America's Largest Fast-Food Chain Is on a Downward Spiral, Reports Say.

Everyone experiences the occasional body aches or pain. However, new research from Boston Medical Center has found a link between women—but not men—with a specific type of pain and elevated mortality risk. According to the study, a systematic literature review published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine analyzing 11 studies with 81,337 middle-aged and older adults, women with severe back pain, the leading cause of disability worldwide, are at an elevated mortality risk compared to those without it. And, interestingly enough, the same relationship was not identified with men, leading researchers to believe that long-term consequences of back pain may differ by sex. The relationship between back pain and mortality was identified by researchers in a variety of ways including limitations in activities of daily living, and reduced physical activity that may lead to weight gain, the development or worsening of chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, and leading to poor balance and falls, which can result in fragility fractures that in turn, can be associated with increased mortality. The researchers found that age did not appear to have an effect on the association between back pain and mortality, "an unexpected result considering past research showing the impact of back pain on disability increases with age," they explained in a press release accompanying the study. "The highest risk of mortality associated with back pain was observed in studies that only included women, and those that identified adults with more severe back pain." "I hope this study will lead to a better understanding of the long-term impacts of activity-limiting back pain on overall health and research to improve back pain treatment over the course of patients' lives," Eric Roseen, DC, MSc, director of the Program for Integrative Medicine and Health Disparities at Boston Medical Center and an assistant professor of family medicine at Boston University School of Medicine, explained in an email statement. "Proper management of back pain is important, especially as the opioid epidemic has been exacerbated and the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people seeking medical care, stress-levels and the environments in which many Americans are working right now."The researchers note that future studies should focus on "the complex relationship between back pain, back pain treatment, mental health, disability, and mortality."

Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger will write the new take Hulu has ordered a gender-swapped sequel to CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother” that will star Hilary Duff called “How I Met Your Father.” “How I Met Your Mother” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas will executive produce with Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger writing the show. The 10-episode comedy will be produced by 20th Television, the same studio behind the original series. Duff will serve as a producer. The series will use the same multi- and single-camera approach that “How I Met Your Mother” used. In the near future, Sophie (Duff) is telling her son the story of how she met his father: a story that catapults us back to the year 2021 where Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options. Also Read: There Was a Rare 5-Way Tie for First Place in Ratings on Tuesday “How I Met Your Mother” ran for nine seasons on CBS from 2005 to 2014. CBS attempted to spin-off the series with a similar idea to Hulu’s, though it was called “How I Met Your Dad.” That version, which never made it past the pilot stage, would have starred Greta Gerwig as Sally, with Meg Ryan providing the voice-over as future Sally. “‘How I Met Your Mother’ continues to be one of the most innovative and beloved comedies on television,” said Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment. “Isaac and Elizabeth have an inspired take on this new version that honors what Carter and Craig created with the original and moves the franchise forward. Isaac and Elizabeth have proven to be rich storytellers and great partners to us at Hulu Originals and across The Walt Disney Company family. Coupled with the passion and infectious energy Hilary brings to every role she takes on, we can’t wait to suit up and bring audiences ‘How I Met Your Father.'” “‘How I Met Your Mother’ is a crown jewel in the 20th library and its fans have clamored for more ever since our final broadcast seven years ago,” said Karey Burke, president, 20th Television. “Our genius producers Isaac and Elizabeth who are–wait for it–legendary within our halls, have created a spectacular new take which both honors the original and is entirely their own. Carter and Craig will return as executive producers, and who better to star as the central character than the incredible Hilary Duff? Many thanks to Craig Erwich and everyone at Hulu Originals for loving the script as much as we did and to our fantastic team who helped put this all together. I could not be more excited. Let the speculation as to who the father is commence!” Added Bays and Thomas: “Kids, I’m going to tell you an incredible story: It’s the story of how two writers got lucky enough to make their dream TV show for nine seasons and now get to pass the torch to an inspired new creative team with their own incredible story to tell, the story of ‘How I Met Your Father.’ We are honored by their passion and vision, and look forward to helping them tell a legendary new story. (Thanks to all the ‘HIMYM’ fans out there who waited for it.)” “How I Met Your Father” is written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger. Executive producers for “How I Met Your Father”include Aptaker, Berger, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Adam Londy will serve as co-executive producer, and Hilary Duff will serve as a producer. “How I Met Your Father”is a production of 20th Television. “How I Met Your Mother” starred Josh Radnor as Ted Mosby, with Bob Saget providing the voiceover as future Ted. The CBS sitcom also starred Alison Hannigan, Jason Segal, Cobie Smolders and Neil Patrick Harris. Cristin Milioti played the eponymous “mother” (whose name was Tracy).

Aziz Ansari-led comedy last aired in 2017 “Master of None” appears to be returning far sooner than anyone expected. Netflix just teased that the third season of the Aziz Ansari-led comedy will premiere in May. See for yourself in the video below. Netflix gave no further details on the upcoming season, which does not have a specific premiere date. “Master of None” last aired in 2017.

The easiest hack for losing weight and belly fat would be one that's so effortless and so enjoyable that you don't even have to think about doing it. But healthy living rarely accommodates such hedonistic fantasies. To lose requires loss, giving up or at least replacing that which causes gain, namely calorie-dense food and drink.But the best way to lose weight isn't to think about dieting in terms of replacement but rather addition. According to Andrea Ovard, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist and certified specialist in sports dietetics for idealfit.com, the easiest hack for weight loss is to eat two servings of vegetables a day."Eat at least 2 cups of vegetables every day," Ovard says. Do it until it becomes a habit, like brushing your teeth.The number one reason why adding or making sure you eat two servings of vegetables a day is that these foods are typically low in calories and high in fiber—two characteristics that help you to feel fuller for longer and help you eat fewer calorie-dense foods."Vegetables are nutrient-dense but usually very low in calories, which means you can eat A LOT of veggies to help you feel full while consuming very few calories. They also contain a lot of fiber, which is important in helping keep you full longer."Related: The Best Low-Carb Vegetables for Weight LossWhen you fill up on fiber-rich vegetables first during a meal, you won't overeat the calorie-dense part of dinner, and you won't have room for a sugary and fatty dessert, she says. "That strategy aids in weight loss."It may not come as a surprise, but eating fewer calorie-dense foods is a key tenet of losing weight. Consider what Harvard School of Public Health researchers found in a study of more than 120,000 healthy men and women reported in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2011.The study analyzed changes in diet and lifestyle and weight gain every four years for 20 years. The average weight gain among participants was 3.35 pounds during each 4-year period, which amounts to a gain of 16.8-pounds over the course of the study. Researchers found that participants' weight gain was most strongly associated with calorie-dense foods that are higher in starches, refined grains, fats, and sugars.The number one food linked to weight gain was potato chips, followed by potatoes, sugar-sweetened beverages, and red meats (both processed and unprocessed). The study also found that certain foods were associated with less weight gain when participants ate more of them. You can guess what they are. (Hint: many of them are the foods Ovard recommends you eat to lose weight). In order of least weight gain was vegetables, whole grains, fruits, nuts, and yogurt. So as you can see, vegetables were the food group that helped participants stave off the most weight over the course of two decades.The bottom line, the researchers suggested, is that focusing on high-quality foods and beverages and limiting poor quality (cheap, processed) foods is the most useful way to consume fewer calories and managing your weight.Easy hacks for getting your veggie quotaOK, so what's the easiest practical hack for eating more high-quality, lower-calorie foods so that they elbow the poor-quality stuff off your plate? Ovard has some tips:If you don't like the taste of some raw vegetables, try new ways of cooking them. "Try them roasted; it's a totally different experience as they're so good," says Ovard.Dip them in hummus. Dunking raw vegetables into dips isn't a bad thing. It can add extra flavor and you're still getting a lot of healthy nutrients and fiber from the produce. Choose healthier dips like hummus that are high in protein.Hide them. "Mix spinach and cauliflower into a smoothie, casseroles, and mac 'n' cheese; you won't even taste them," says Ovard. "Load up your fajitas, tacos, burgers and pizza with a ton of vegetables."Find the fiberOvard likes to focus on vegetables that provide the most fiber and nutrients, like carrots (3.6 grams of fiber per cup), spinach (4 grams per cup), broccoli (2.5 g) and artichokes (7 g).The benefits of these foods extend beyond their fiber counts. Carrots are high in vitamin A for good vision, spinach is a great source of magnesium, which is important for energy metabolism, and artichokes are rich in disease-fighting folate, vitamin C and vitamin K.Build a harvest bowlPlanning ahead can make it even easier to boost your vegetable eating. Ovard recommends trying her Harvest Bowl, which makes four servings so you can pack the extras for lunches or snacks. One serving of this delicious meal hits your two-cups-of-veggies quota.Ingredients (makes 4 servings)2 cups brown rice, uncooked2 large chicken breasts1 medium-large sweet potato1 tomato1.5 cups Brussels sprouts1 yellow bell pepper2 cups chickpeas1/4 red, onionCilantroRanch dressingOlive oilGarlic saltPepperDirectionsCook rice on the stove, until fully softened/cooked.Cook and shred chicken.Preheat oven to 400 F.Chop the sweet potatoes, bell pepper, Brussels sprouts, and onion, and spread on a baking sheet, along with the chickpeas.Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil, garlic salt and pepper and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until starting to crisp and brown.Serve by placing a serving of rice in a bowl, topping it with chicken and the roasted veggies.
