Chris Cuomo and Dan Abrams denied claims made in the New York Post that the fired host was vying for the NewsNation standby’s primetime slot.

On Sunday the Post reported that Cuomo had been fuming throughout the NewsNation offices, raging against bad ratings and .  

As Cuomo wrapped up his 8pm show and Abrams took the stage at 9pm, the production team appeared to ask Cuomo to stay on to discuss it with Abrams.

Abrams feigned anger at Cuomo, saying he had ‘a bone to pick’ with him and demanding to know why he was going behind his back to vie for the 9pm slot. 

‘I read the New York Post and they’re telling me that you’ve been vying for my hour, and that you’ve been going to the bosses and saying ‘Oh I want Abrams to move to 8 and I’m gonna move to 9,’ and I’ve got a problem with that,’ Abrams said.

He then told Cuomo: ‘I would prefer to do eight o’clock.’ 

After Cuomo said ‘but you’re the big dog, that’s how it goes’, Abrams replied: ‘No, apparently I’m not, because if I was the big dog, I’d be still doing eight o’clock.’ 

Abrams then said: ‘What your ratings in our little world here like whoa, Cuomo is hitting homeruns every night.’

During the back and forth, Cuomo denied the Post’s report.

NewsNation also previously denied the Post’s report, calling the claims of Cuomo’s rage ‘completely, totally, 100% inaccurate.’

Abrams continued his segment on Monday to poke fun at the way Cuomo is characterized in the New York Post’s stories.

‘Every week you’re yelling at somebody apparently, you’re angry about this and you’re angry about that and Cuomo was furious,’ Abrams said, then touted Cuomo’s ratings at NewsNation.

According to the Post, Cuomo’s viewership ratings have been declining since his new show aired in early October, citing an average viewership of 119,000 viewers in the week of the 17th.

NewsNation pushed back on that characterization, telling DailyMail.com that viewership for Cuomo had increased 276 percent since his show aired.

Cuomo’s debut pulled in 147,000 on October 4. According to Nielsen Media Research the show has pulled in 193,000 viewers on October 4, and then 174,000 and 159,000 the following two days.

But the show has seemingly dropped off since then, bringing in just 129,000 viewers during his interview with Kanye West.

Those numbers are a far cry from Cuomo’s viewership at CNN – roughly one-sixth of the 849,000 he drew in at this time last year, according to .

NewsNation is a relatively new broadcaster which bills itself as offering neutral reporting on current events – a marked departure for Cuomo, who enjoyed inserting his opinions into stories while on CNN.

Cuomo is reportedly earning $1 million the hosting gig – a fraction of his former $6 million-a-year paycheck at CNN.

Cuomo was canned by CNN executives for violating journalistic ethics by advising his disgraced brother – former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo – through sexual misconduct allegations in 2021.

Cuomo has since maintained he did nothing wrong in advising his older brother and is currently suing CNN for $125million for lost wages, with the lawsuit claiming the firing left his reputation so marred that it would be ‘difficult if not impossible for Cuomo to find similar work in the future.’

During a promotional interview for the new show earlier this month, Cuomo appeared to try to distance himself from the partisan reporting of his past.

‘Everything’s gotta be context, and balance,’ he said in an interview with NewsNation. ‘It can’t just be that everything is wrong, everything is bad, and I see that now having been outside of it for while, and I hope to bring that perspective in.

‘NewsNation is just getting going, the idea of developing an audience, growing something, that’s really important to me. Cause I’m really trying to speak to a group, which the good news is it’s the biggest group, which is regular people who don’t identify with either extreme of a party,’ he said.

Despite his hiatus from the broadcaster’s chair, Cuomo has remained in the headlines since his departure from CNN.

Many have speculated Cuomo may have sparked the shakeup currently rocking CNN by ratting on former CEO Jeff Zucker over a consensual relationship with the network’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Allison Gollus, which led directly to the executive’s firing.

Cuomo has described Zucker as ‘one of the best makers of television’ and the relationship being revealed gave him ‘no joy,’ adding that Zucker ‘gave me tremendous opportunities.’

Despite the kind words for his former boss, Cuomo bitterly lamented that he was ‘recognized in Malawi as much as I would be in Milwaukee’ before his firing.

Cuomo continues to maintain he doesn’t see anything wrong with his actions, and says because he wasn’t covering his brother’s allegations, he was free to help him.

‘I was helping him in ways that I thought were reasonable,’ said Cuomo in an interview earlier in October.

‘I don’t know how it hurt the audience. I’ve never heard that it hurt the audience,’ he said of his helping shape his brother’s defense against sexual harassment allegations.

At the time he issued an on-air apology on CNN, Cuomo said that he ‘knows where the line is’.

He addressed the conflict of interest again in his podcast, saying: ‘I really do regret how everything ended, but I will never regret helping my family.’

Andrew Cuomo’s career collapsed as a politician after he was accused of inappropriate sexual behavior towards 11 women.

He resigned in August 2021 after months of pushback and eventually all criminal charges were dropped against him.

The charges against Cuomo were based on allegations by Brittany Commisso, who said Cuomo reached up her blouse and grabbed her breast in late 2020 while they were alone in his Executive Mansion office, where she´d been summoned to help with his cellphone.

He insisted he did no such thing, saying ‘it would be an act of insanity.’

Commisso’s testimony was among the most damning in a report released in August 2021 by Democratic state Attorney General Letitia James that concluded Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women.

Chris Cuomo maintains that he was not ‘the main guy’ in helping his brother overcome the allegations and was merely a ‘side piece’ in the efforts.

This notion is backed up by notes from his brother’s top aide Melissa DeRosa, who noted ‘Chris sends me a lot of things a lot of the time. Half of it I don’t engage in. He gives unsolicited advice.’

The former governor was also blamed for many of New York’s 15,000 nursing home COVID deaths after forcing the facilities to accept COVID-positive patients at the start of the pandemic.

Chris chummily interviewed his brother on his CNN show during the time and has admitted he knew having his brother on his show was a conflict of interest ‘all day long.’

2Day FM has cleared up speculation about the future of the Hughsey, Ed and Erin breakfast show.

Rumours swirled last week that the Hit Network’s national drive hosts Tommy Little and Carrie Bickmore would be taking over the Sydney breakfast slot in 2023 following Bickmore’s departure from Channel 10’s The Project.

However, Erin Molan shut down the gossip on Monday by confirming on LinkedIn she and her co-hosts Dave Hughes and Ed Kavalee aren’t going anywhere.

‘Completely unprompted,’ Molan began her post, presumably referring to the recent speculation surrounding her show. 

‘Signed a new radio deal a couple of months back… love these legends… love our breakfast show listeners (the number of whom has almost doubled in a year) and feel very grateful to be part of Southern Cross Austereo,’ she added. 

Hughesy, Ed and Erin took over 2Day FM’s breakfast slot in January, but the show has failed to rise to the top of the ratings ladder despite growing its audience.

Television industry veteran Robert McKnight believes Bickmore's future lies at the helm of 2Day FM's Sydney breakfast show. She already hosts the Hit Network's top-rating drive show alongside Tommy Little (left) and is said to be earning a million dollars per year

The show reached an all-time ratings low in 2021, but has been clawing its way back and hit its highest-ever listenership earlier this year.

Yet the program still remains at the bottom of the pack, trailing behind Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa and KIIS FM’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show. 

It comes after well-placed sources denied reports Bickmore was being considered for 2Day FM’s breakfast show.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, sources familiar with the negotiations said Bickmore won’t be leaving the  show, which airs weekdays from 3-6pm. 

Bickmore’s reported $1.5million radio salary will also remain unchanged.

It comes after a Nine Network executive denied rumours Bickmore is joining the Today show following her announcement she is leaving Channel 10’s The Project.

Industry sources said Bickmore, who has been linked to the Today gig on at least one other occasion, will take up the job in 2023 alongside , while is drafted to replace Tracy Grimshaw on A Current Affair.

But Steven Burling, Nine’s Director of Morning Television, shut down these claims on , saying the proposed moves will not be happening.

A teenager who was referred for hospital checks has been given an appointment by a scandal-hit trust – in June 2025.

The boy’s father said he was astonished after Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) confirmed that the date in the letter was not a typing error.

His 16-year-old son was referred to the hospital trust for assessment of a urology-related problem – but will be 18 when the day of his appointment comes around in 951 days.

SaTH, where the NHS’s worst maternity scandal took place in which 201 babies and nine mothers died over two decades, has apologised and said it recognises ‘that the current waits are not acceptable’.

The boy’s father said he was astonished after Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) confirmed that the date in the letter was not a typing error.One of the hospitals that is run by the Trust is pictured above

It explained that recruitment issues and pressure due to the ‘continued impact of Covid’ have led to delays.

The boy’s father said of the appointment letter: ‘I thought it was a typo and was going to ask, ‘Do you mean 2023?’ We were expecting a nine-month wait would be on par for where we thought the NHS was with waiting lists.

‘Speaking to the person in the booking office, she said, ‘Yes, we have fielded a lot of these calls, particularly for urology’.’

He told his local newspaper that the family could not afford to go private and were left dismayed at the wait for his son to be seen over an issue which causes him considerable discomfort.

Shrewsbury Liberal Demcrat councillor Alex Wagner said the situation was a ‘damning example of the quality of the [NHS] service in Shropshire’.Sheila Fryer, interim deputy chief operating officer at SaTH, said: ‘We would like to apologise for the wait for a urology appointment.

‘This length of delay is rare and we would like to reassure [the family] that we are doing everything we can, alongside partners, to reduce the amount of time patients are waiting for an appointment.’ She added: ‘We are also working with other healthcare providers to see if they can support the reduction of waiting times.’

But not everyone is thrilled with Renee’s return, with an unnamed race official telling  on Tuesday: ‘She is just using the sport to sell more videos.It is not even worth commenting on because it is not going to happen’. 

Renee last competed in the Carrera Cup and Super2 races in 2017 before leaving the sport.  

The beauty has made millions of dollars on OnlyFans since leaving the sport, and has been bringing in six figures a month since 2020. 

That same year, she reported her earnings had already reached $2 million.

She revealed that she has around 20,000 subscribers who pay her $5 each, meaning she makes $120,000 a month just from subscriptions.

It comes after the stunner revealed the requests she refuses to preform on adult platform OnlyFans. 

Renee says she won’t do anything involving urinating or farting – no matter much she’s offered. 

‘The one I remember the most, only because he was so persistent, was a guy who wanted to pay me $20,000 to fly to so I could pee on him,’ she told . 

Another fan, ‘had an obsession with licking armpits and playing with armpits and elbows, that seemed weird’.

Renee says a common request is passing wind – but she only refuses because she ‘can’t hold on’ to her farts long enough to film them.

‘I get a lot of farting requests, it is more common than you might think, weirdly enough,’ he told the paper.

Renee previously revealed that she had to go through a process to become comfortable in her new career as a porn performer and was ‘repulsed’ by the platform at first. 

‘For me it was a slow progression. I never had the intention to be making so much of what I am making,’ she told . 

‘I didn’t have the confidence that people wanted to see it.It slightly repulsed me, watching it and thinking about watching it back,’ she added. 

Renee says she was tempted by the money and building her confidence, which increased as she was encouraged by fans. 

She added that she also earns ‘a lot’ from custom content, such as foot fetish photos, which she finds ‘easy’ to do. 

‘I like my feet anyway!I have always had nice feet. My feet are nice!’ she joked. 

All in all, Renee says she works between 30 and 60 hours each week, and that includes answering private messages and making content.

The Raiders believe the ‘s finals scheduling has ‘made it harder’ for them to beat the Storm in Melbourne next week, with Ricky Stuart complaining his team always draws ‘the short straw’.

On Sunday, the NRL confirmed the schedule for Week 1 of the finals, which begin on Friday night at BlueBet Stadium when reigning minor premiers Penrith host Parramatta as they look to move a step closer to a second Grand Final triumphs in a row.  

The Raiders travel to Melbourne on Saturday night to take on the Storm at AAMI Park, an arrangement which has left the club unimpressed.

Canberra played on Sunday afternoon as they strolled to a 52-10 annihilation of the Tigers at Leichhardt Oval to clinch eighth place. 

The Storm, however, will have an extra two days of rest after losing to Parramatta on Thursday night in the opening game of Round 25.

‘It’s made it harder for us and it reminds me of 2020 because it’s not easy, but we’re used to it,’ Raiders boss Don Furner told the .

Two years ago, the Storm and the Raiders faced each other in the preliminary final, with the game played at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane due to Covid-19 lockdowns in Victoria.

While the Storm had been based on the Sunshine Coast, the Raiders were denied permission to travel to travel to Queensland 24 hours before kick-off.Canberra were instead ordered to fly to Brisbane on the day of the game and head directly to Suncorp Stadium.

The less than ideal preparation saw the Raiders concede 22 unanswered points in the first 24 minutes, a deficit they never recovered as they lost 30-10.

‘I’m just happy to be in the semis,’ Stuart said after the win against the Tigers.’We are a club that’s very used to getting the short straw.

‘I thought we would play on Sunday and then when we had 24 hours less [until the game] I thought to myself I’d make a couple of changes.

‘Because we are playing on the Saturday that gave me the idea to rest a few players.’

The Raiders had reportedly asked the NRL for the finals to be the last one on the schedule, given they were the last team to confirm their finals slot gacor and travelled back to Canberra from Sydney on Sunday night.

The NRL has instead scheduled as Saturday’s first game, to be followed by the qualifying final between Cronulla and the Cowboys at PointsBet Stadium.

A dopey drug smuggler was caught by police after his £5,000 cargo of American cannabis was forwarded to a sorting office when he missed a home delivery slot. 

Gary Patnett, 37, had been expecting his illicit parcel of ‘Cali’ weed to be delivered to his home after he and his younger sibling ordered it online from a US firm operating legally in .

But the hapless father-of-two, nicknamed ‘B***end’ by his sister, missed the delivery by an unsuspecting courier – and he returned shortly afterwards to find a ‘sorry we missed you card’ on his doorstep.

Mother-of-one Natasha Patnett then went on a tracking app to find the missing package before her brother went on a frantic mission to their nearest sorting office in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in the hope of collecting it.

But police – who had been called to the depot after staff raised the alarm – ambushed Patnett as he arrived on his bike and arrested him.

When searched, Patnett was found with the ‘missed delivery’ card in his hand – while his phone had a text message from Natasha, 34, bonus gacor saying: ‘Morning B***end, do not forget the parcel.’

At Chester Crown Court, the pair, from Ellesmere Port, pleaded guilty to importation of a class B drug.

Ryan Rothwell, prosecuting, said police were notified by Royal Mail postal workers about the ‘suspicious package’ on January 29, 2022.

‘Inside the package was 225g of fairly high-quality cannabis worth between £3,200 and £5,100.It was contained in 64 packets of what had been branded as Cali Weed,’ Mr Rothwell told the court. 

‘The package was addressed to where the defendant was staying with his partner at the time. It was addressed to a fictional female, Janet Baker.’

Patnett’s phone was seized by police, with officers later finding messages to his sister that proved she was ‘involved’, the prosecutor added.

‘A message received on January 27, the day before, at 2.34pm indicated that she messaged Mr Patnett: “That parcel has been delivered to yours, tracker says, so you need to answer”,’ Mr Rothwell told the court.

‘The message indicated that Miss Patnett was following the delivery of the parcel on a tracker.

‘The following day, January 28, at 9.45am, there was another message: ‘Morning b*** ends, do not forget the parcel.Not sure if it shuts at 11 or 1 on a Friday.’

‘The day after his arrest, Miss Patnett stopped using that number. A search warrant was carried out at her address in March of last year. She was arrested. In interview, both defendants gave no comment to all questions.’

Jonathan Keane, who was defending Patnett’s sister, said his client had previously been in an abusive relationship. 

He added: ‘Remorse has certainly been advanced in two ways.When she thinks of the impact of her offending on her daughter who she is the sole carer for and she has insight about the impact of drugs on society, given the difficulties her brother suffers with and that she had brushes with in the past.’

Patnett was ordered to complete 120 hours of unpaid work along with 20 days of rehabilitative activity with the probation service. 

Due to her previous conviction, his sister was given 140 hours of unpaid work along with 20 days of rehabilitative activity.She was fined £46 at an earlier hearing for possession of amphetamine.

Sentencing, the judge Recorder David O’Mahony said: ‘Gary, the presentence report notes your remorse and refers to your efforts to deal with your habit. You are unemployed but hope to get a job when this matter is dealt with.’

Turning to Patnett’s sibling, the judge said: ‘Natasha, you say in your pre-sentence report that you were motivated by fear and to assist your brother. 

‘You are a full-time mother on benefits but you have worked in the past and want to again in the future.You have used drugs, mainly cannabis, to deal with your mental health but you are remorseful.’

Mr Johnson has been urging Brits to ignore ‘gloom-mongers’ as senior EU players in the Brexit saga weighed in on the landmark date. 

The most left-field claim came from wacky former Belgian PM and arch federalist Guy Verhofstadt, who suggested Brexit was to blame for Vladimir Putin’s bloody invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile former EU negotiator Michel Barnier suggested that the UK had seen ‘no added value’ from leaving.He also lauded Keir Starmer as ‘a European’, something the Labour leader may not appreciate as he tries to keep his party happy. 

Speaking to Ms Dorries on the programme – to be broadcast on Friday at 8pm – MrJohnson said: ‘Thank goodness that era is behind us but one thing people forget – now let’s pray it’s behind us – but one thing people forget, thinking about the vaccine rollout is there we’ve got the, I think the third anniversary of Brexit, coming up, or the third anniversary of the day when we actually came out of the EU. 

‘You don’t hear it much these days, but it is absolutely the case, that had it not been for our ability to do our own regulation, had it not been for the fact that we’d come out of the European Medicines Agency, the MHRA, the medical health regulation agency, was now totally free to decide how fast to approve the vaccine – we wouldn’t have been able to do that vaccine rollout so fast.

‘And you know, it is literally true that Brexit helped save lives.And people’s eyes bulge a bit when you say that, but it happens to be true… I’m proud of that. I’m proud of all the work that those people did.’

Mr Johnson also addressed the ongoing investigation by the Privileges Committee into his Partygate conduct.

He insisted he will be ‘respectful’ of the process, but said anyone who thought he had deliberately covered up lockdown parties in No10 was ‘out of their mind’.
