Smaller Thanksgiving turkeys in demand, stores ordered big ones

  • Demand for “hens,” smaller, female turkeys, is outstripping demand for “toms,” larger turkeys, as families plan smaller, coronavirus-conscious Thanksgiving meals. 
  • But the trend spells a problem for supermarkets, who placed orders for big Thanksgiving turkeys last January, industry analyst Anne-Marie Roerink told Business Insider.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Consumers looking to plan coronavirus-conscious, scaled-down Thanksgivings are looking for smaller turkeys this year. But those searching for slimmer birds might have a problem since supermarkets are already stocked with big ones, says grocery analyst Anne-Marie Roerink, President of 210 Analytics.

“A large number of people who would normally be hosting extended family dinners are now only celebrating with the immediate family,” said Roerink in an interview with Business Insider. The median number of people at the Thanksgiving table will be only five this year, down from eight in 2019, according to a survey by IRI.

He may still be big and red, but you’ve never seen Clifford like this before.

On Wednesday, Paramount debuted the first teaser for the upcoming live-action “Clifford The Big Red Dog” movie, coming to theatres Nov. 5, 2021.

The teaser opens with a row of adorable dogs, as the camera pans by them to reveal the computer animated Clifford, who looks like a very large, photorealistic red Labrador retriever.

“When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant 10-foot hound in her small New York City apartment,” the official description reads. “While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on

Our first official look at the live-action/CGI-animated movie version of Clifford the Big Red Dog has arrived. On the official Twitter account for the upcoming movie, a sneak peek video reveals the giant, red-furred dog as he compares to other normal-sized canines. “This holiday season, we’re thankful for the pets who’ve love got us through the year, but next year, get ready to love even bigger,” a narrator says, encouraging fans to share pictures of their pets using the hashtag #LoveBig.

The Clifford the Big Red Dog movie adaptation is based on the Scholastic children’s book series

It’s been a year of tragic losses, many in the singer-songwriter world, including John Prine, Mac Davis and Jerry Jeff Walker. Today I’ll focus on Justin Townes Earle. Justin struggled with addiction and passed away from an apparent drug overdose on Aug. 20. Justin’s father, Steve Earle, has recorded an album of his son’s music, and I’ll play “Harlem River Blues” from the upcoming record, J.T.

Texas songwriters weigh heavily on today’s show — in addition to Steve Earle, we hear from Big Thief’s Buck Meek and his new record Two Saviors. The song I feature plays off the notion that we can recognize shapes where none were intended to exist, like seeing shapes in clouds. The word for that is

New Montana ABC TV show ‘Big Sky TV’ premiered this past week

CLOSE

From the dome to your home. Ramblings, mutterings, keen observations and things you ought to know out of Helena from the mind of Phil Drake.

EYE ON ‘BIG SKY’: Did you watch the premiere of “Big Sky” Tuesday on ABC TV?

Well, I did. I really don’t have a strong opinion or review of the show, except that the ending kinda knocked me off my chair.

The reviews I have seen have not been especially kind. But it does take place in Helena, even though much of it was supposedly filmed elsewhere.

And, frankly, that is why I watched.

It makes many references to Montana, and my favorite scene is where a Montana Highway Patrol trooper stops to help a stranded motorist who tells the

American Music Awards 2020 recap: Taylor Swift, the Weeknd and Dan + Shay win big

One of the biggest nights in music, the American Music Awards, kicked off Sunday night with a series of worldwide premieres, big wins and even bigger surprises.

Hosted by Taraji P. Henson from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater, the audience looked a little different this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Along with a “small but mighty COVID-free audience,” cardboard cutouts of the who’s who within the music industry, like Dolly Parton and Beyoncé, lined the front rows — of which Henson enjoyed pretending to interact with as if they were the real deal.

Swift further cemented herself as the most decorated winner in American Music Award history, bumping her lifetime awards total to 32 on Sunday. The awards she added to her

The new ‘Saved by the Bell’ has a big advantage over other reboots: It’s really good

But that adulation hasn’t automatically extended to the SBTB universe’s expansion efforts. “Saved by the Bell: The College Years?” We couldn’t transfer quickly enough from that snooze fest. And “Saved by the Bell: The New Class” never matched the magic of its namesake.

One has to ask: Why keep coming back to Bayside if every revival doesn’t hold up to the original? Maybe the first iteration just can’t be topped.

On Peacock’s new “Saved by the Bell” reboot, which streams Wednesday, a funnier and more culturally relevant reimagining of Bayside High will make even the most die-hard SBTB fans take notice.

Many will probably give the series a try because of well-advertised appearances by the original cast: Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Zack Morris; Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski, who is Zack’s wife; Elizabeth Berkley as Jessie Spano; and Mario Lopez as A.C. Slater are all set to return, with a confirmed

G20 Summit Closes With Little Progress and Big Gaps Between Trump and Allies

The lack of American leadership at such forums comes as the world continues to face severe economic strain from the pandemic. The International Monetary Fund projected last month that the global economy would contract 4.4 percent in 2020 and that the recovery would be long, uneven and uncertain. Poor countries have been particularly vulnerable to the effects of the virus; the World Bank estimated in October that the pandemic could push more than 100 million people into extreme poverty this year.

On Sunday, the leaders threw their support behind a new framework to provide debt relief for poor countries that have been hit hard by the pandemic and reiterated their commitment to freezing bilateral debt payments through June. More than 40 countries have gained over $5 billion in immediate debt payment relief this year. Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, had already backed the measure, but it was not clear it
