HLN should send Jodi Arias a fruit basket and a spa vacation. The cable channel's coverage of the Arias murder trial -- she is accused of killing her ex-boyfriend in 2008 at his Arizona home -- gave its first quarter numbers a nice boost, according to Nielsen. In March alone, HLN saw its total day ratings increase by 53% and prime time was up almost 50%. For the first three months, HLN is up 17% in total day and 12% in prime.

The massive tornado that tore through populated, urban areas in Oklahoma on Monday mostly skirted the state's livestock-rich areas, sparing many cattle auction sites, feedlots, ranches and farms. Still, some animals were lost in the storm. “As big and as long as it was, I'm certain that there will be some ranches affected,” said Jim Reese, the Oklahoma secretary of agriculture, adding the state was establishing shelters for pets and large animals.
