But also new this season, Cookie Monster is getting his own food truck.

He’s teaming up with a new friend named Gonger. The two will go on a road trip to find the main ingredient, Fox News reported.

For example, in the opening episode, he needs apples, so he heads to an apple orchard. Throughout the season he’ll investigate where cranberries, avocados, tortillas, pineapples, maple syrup, pasta and milk come from.

The idea behind the few feature is to have kids learn how food’s made and then eat healthier because of it.

They will also have some big-named chefs helping them create meals like Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi who will visit for the “international street food fair,” Fox News reported.

George Saunders is bookies' favorite for Man Booker prize

American author George Saunders is the bookmakers' favorite to win the prestigious Man Booker Prize for fiction with his novel of the afterlife, "Lincoln in the Bardo."

Six novels are contending for the 50,000 pound ($66,000) prize, including Saunders' tale of Abraham Lincoln and his dead son and U.S. novelist Paul Auster's quadruple coming-of-age story "4321."

The other finalists are U.S. writer Emily Fridlund's story of a Midwest teenager, "History of Wolves;" Scottish novelist Ali Smith's Brexit-themed "Autumn;" British-Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid's migration saga "Exit West;" and "Elmet," debut British novelist Fiona Mozley's story of a fiercely independent family under threat.

The prize, subject to intense speculation, usually brings the victor a huge boost in sales and profile.

The winner will be announced Tuesday in London.

Michelle Yeoh: Weinstein a 'bully,' 'not always honorable'

Actress Michelle Yeoh said Tuesday that she was aware of Harvey Weinstein's reputation and would have unleashed "years of martial arts training" on the fallen Hollywood mogul had he ever tried to sexually harass her.

In a statement to The Associated Press, the Malaysian star added to the chorus of female voices speaking out about the sexual harassment scandal surrounding Weinstein, who produced or distributed many of Yeoh's films and TV shows.

"Any man who treats women with such disrespect and contempt should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," said Yeoh, who stars in the new TV series "Star Trek: Discovery."

"I knew he was a bully and not always honorable. I wasn't exposed to this side of him, otherwise he would have experienced the full effect of years of martial arts training," she said, without elaborating.

Their paths often crossed because Weinstein was passionate about Asian action movies, particularly kung fu flicks.

The Weinstein Co. was one of the producers of last year's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny," a sequel in which Yeoh reprised her role from the original blockbuster martial arts film. The company also produced the Netflix series "Marco Polo," a period epic in which Yeoh had a role.

Weinstein's previous company, Miramax, distributed Yeoh's earlier films. He was also a big donor to amfAR, an AIDS charity for which Yeoh, 55, is an ambassador.

Since allegations of Weinstein sexually harassing women over decades emerged in reports by The New York Times and The New Yorker, more than three dozen women have publicly accused him of abuse. Weinstein has also been fired by his movie company and been expelled from prestigious Hollywood groups, including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — the home of the Oscars.

Robert Fairchild ends ballet career with confetti, flowers

Silvery confetti has rained down on the stage at New York City Ballet for dancer Robert Fairchild, who ended his ballet career by handing out roses to each of his fellow dancers.

The Tony nominee for "An American in Paris" will now focus full-time on theater and film.

For his final ballet Sunday evening, 30-year-old Fairchild performed George Balanchine's "Duo Concertant" with a longtime partner, ballerina Sterling Hyltin. After curtain calls, in grand ballet tradition, a succession of dancers came out to congratulate him. Usually the dancers bring bouquets; Fairchild tweaked the tradition a bit by handing out roses himself.

Fairchild's next projects include acting and dancing in a production of "Brigadoon," and choreographing and starring in a production of "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein."

Trump campaign faces subpoena in assault lawsuit

President Donald Trump's presidential campaign has been subpoenaed for records related to past sexual assault allegations against Trump — charges the president on Monday dismissed as "made-up stuff."

Lawyers for Summer Zervos, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," asked the campaign in March to preserve any records in its possession concerning Zervos or other women who accused Trump of misconduct. Zervos says Trump kissed and groped her against her will in 2007.

During a Rose Garden press conference, Trump dismissed the allegations as politically motivated.

"All I can say is it's totally fake news — just fake. It's fake, it's made-up stuff. And it's disgraceful what happens," he said. "That happens in the world of politics."

Zervos' request was filed as part of a defamation lawsuit. Lawyers for Trump For President agreed in April to hold on to any related records. Those sorts of subpoenas are routine in civil litigation.

It isn't clear yet whether the case will advance far enough that the Trump campaign will be required to actually turn over those records.

Trump's lawyers have asked that the case be dismissed, or delayed until he is no longer president.

Three legal scholars who, 20 years ago, submitted a brief to the Supreme Court arguing that President Bill Clinton wasn't immune from a sexual harassment suit filed by Paula Jones, filed a similar brief in the Zervos case last month.

The law professors, Richard Primus, of the University of Michigan Law School, and Justin Florence and Larry Schwartztol, of The Protect Democracy Project, said Trump also isn't immune from the Zervos lawsuit.

"No one in our nation is above the law, not even the president," they wrote.

A decision on whether the lawsuit can proceed is not expected for some time.

‘Titanic’ actress Kate Winslet says there’s one character she’d play again

Actress Kate Winslet has played many impressive roles through her long career, but there is one character that she would love to go back and play again.

>> Read more trending news

The actress told Entertainment Weekly that if were up to her, she would go back and play Clementine from her 2004 film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” in which she starred alongside Jim Carrey.

Winslet said:

“Actually, she’s one I’d love to play again, because it was just so much fun. And the possibilities for the hair colors were just endless. Wouldn’t you like to see Clementine as a 42-year-old woman? I’d love to know what happened to her. I love the idea that she just let herself get really fat and just totally let go of her hangups about her body and just indulged in everything that made her feel happy. And more hair colors and more crazy clothes! I just think that could’ve been fun.”

Winslet also revealed that she hardly ever goes back and watches any of her performances after doing a movie. She said a few years ago, she sat down with her daughter and director Peter Jackson to watch “Heavenly Creatures,” Winslet’s first movie.

“Peter kept turning to me and saying, ‘You know, this is a bloody good film! This is really a bloody good film we made! I mean, bloody hell! When you think about some of the (expletive) that’s out there, Christ! This is a really good film!’” Winslet said.

“I was like, ‘Calm down, Pete, calm down!’ And I think he had a moment of allowing himself, beyond ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit,’ to just be very, very proud of a film he’d made, this tiny film that we’d made 25 years ago,” she added.

Carlson says nation shifting on harassment issue

Between the continued fallout from the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case and the mushrooming "me too" social media campaign, Gretchen Carlson's book on fighting back against abusive behavior couldn't be timed any better.

Out Tuesday, the one-time Fox News Channel personality's book "Be Fierce" compiles many harassment stories she's collected since her lawsuit last year that led to the ouster of former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Now the Weinstein story has struck a chord, and Carlson said she's proud that she may have contributed to women being more willing to tell their stories.

Carlson said that the nation may be in the midst of a profound cultural shift on the issue.

"What was so important about the Weinstein story is that women finally put their names and faces to the issue," she told The Associated Press. "It wasn't just anonymous women. It really brought the story to life quickly. If I had anything to do with that, then all the hard work I've been doing over the last 15 months on this issue has been so worth it."

Actress Alyssa Milano urged women over the weekend to announce "me too" on social media if they'd been abused and thousands responded, many telling their stories.

"While it's horrific how many women have stories, it's a cathartic moment in time," Carlson said on Monday.

For years women have been discouraged from telling of abuse, fearing they'd lose their jobs or be labeled troublemakers, she said. Even when they pursue cases, they often must choose between an arbitration process that is kept confidential or accepting a settlement that compels them to keep quiet about their abuse. She said that often leaves them defenseless, such as when fired Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly made television appearances where he declared his innocence of the harassment charges that led to his firing and said he should have gone after his critics harder. Carlson, whose book tour does not include a stop at Fox News, called O'Reilly's appearance on his old network "horrifying."

Carlson signed a settlement with Fox that limits what she can say about the company, but she had already outlined her accusations against Ailes in legal papers. Ailes, before he died earlier this year, consistently denied wrongdoing.

The number of people who wrote to her to tell their own stories compelled her to write "Be Fierce." Several women told of careers being permanently derailed when they fought back against abuse. Carlson contacted many of them and did her own reporting, and also tells of other non-Fox abusive incidents that affected her personally.

"From waitresses to accountants to lawyers to bankers to teachers to journalists, it's everywhere," she said. "That's why I believe the Weinstein story is so important, because this is not just about Hollywood or journalism. This is about every business and every profession."

Carlson's book delivers pep talks to women afraid to rock the boat, as well as specific legal strategies. Bullying and non-sexual forms of intimidation are also addressed and there's a chapter for men who stand up for women in their lives and workplace.

She's set up a foundation to help women fighting back against abusers. After being questioned about whether her strategies are practical for poor women or single moms, Carlson will run a three-day leadership foundation in nine cities for women to attend for free. She'll speak at several colleges about the prevalence of sexual assaults on campus.

And sometime next year, she'll return to television. She said she's working with a Hollywood producer on a TV series that discusses the nation's divisiveness, offering few other details. People have encouraged her to get into politics, and the Connecticut resident isn't ruling it out.

"I had to do what I did so that my children and your children wouldn't face the same indignities," she said.

Producers guild starts process to expel Harvey Weinstein

In an unprecedented move, the Producers Guild of America has voted unanimously to institute termination proceedings for Harvey Weinstein on disciplinary grounds.

The PGA's National Board of Directors and Officers said Monday that Weinstein has an opportunity to respond before a final decision is made on Nov. 6.

The decision to move forward with the expulsion process was decided on by a group comprised of 20 women and 18 men. It comes just two days after the 65-year-old Oscar winner had his membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revoked.

Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister declined to comment.

The guild, which has over 5,000 members and represents those in film, television and new media, also decided Monday to institute an anti-sexual harassment task force to research and propose solutions to what it calls a "systematic and pervasive problem requiring immediate industry-wide action."

"The PGA calls on leaders throughout the entertainment community to work together to ensure that sexual abuse and harassment are eradicated from the industry," said PGA presidents Gary Lucchesi and Lori McCreary in a statement.

In 2013 Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein were given the Milestone Award by the PGA, which is considered the Guild's highest honor and is intended to recognize those who have made historic contributions to the entertainment industry. Other recipients include Walt Disney, Steven Spielberg and James Cameron.

Weinstein has also been nominated for multiple Producers Guild Awards over the years — twice for films "Gangs of New York" and "Shakespeare in Love" and twice as a producer of "Project Runway."

The guild has terminated memberships in the past for failure to pay dues, but Weinstein is the first to have been voted for expulsion on disciplinary grounds.

On Monday, The Weinstein Co. said it will receive an immediate cash infusion from Colony Capital and is in negotiations for the potential sale of all or a significant portion of the company responsible for producing films such as "Django Unchained," ''The Hateful Eight" and "Lion."

"We will help return the company to its rightful iconic position in the independent film and television industry," Colony said in a statement.

The company fired Weinstein on Oct. 8, days after he was accused of sexually harassing women for decades in an expose by The New York Times. Subsequent stories by the Times and The New Yorker included allegations of abuse, and more than three dozen women have publicly accused the disgraced mogul of abuse.

Mayim Bialik discusses Weinstein comments after backlash

Actress Mayim Bialik has clarified her comments on the sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein after an opinion piece she wrote drew accusations of victim blaming.

Bialik wrote in a New York Times piece published Friday that she makes choices to be "self-protecting and wise" like dressing modestly and not acting flirtatiously.

She later added that nothing "excuses men for assaulting or abusing women" and women should be able to wear and act however they want.

Bialik responded to social media criticism in a Facebook interview with the Times on Monday.

She says women can't avoid being "the victim of assault by what you wear or the way you behave." She adds that she regrets that the piece "became what it became."

The body found floating in the Schuylkill River in University City, Pa., on Thursday has been identified as Philip Reitnour, an entrepreneur who notably made an appearance on the TV show “Shark Tank.”

Video of his appearance on “Shark Tank” shows Reitnour and a partner telling the panel about the app “EmergenSee,” billed as a better option than using 911.
