Quick Hits: Facts and figures

- Not surprisingly, Father's Day isn't a big "dine out" day. Father's Day is the fifth most popular day for going out to a restaurant. Which restaurant chains are the hot destinations for Dad? Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse and Applebee's.

- The biggest TV event each year in the U.S. is the Super Bowl, which draws an average of slightly over 100 million viewers. The World Cup final, in comparison, draws 715 million.

- Who was Fast Company magazine's "most creative person in business?" It was none other than Lady Gaga who, wrote the magazine, "melded her inspirations with au courant dance pop and Web savvy to build a business empire notable for both the speed of its creation and the diversity of its platforms." Trailing Gaga were notables like Eddy Cue, VP of Internet Services at Apple; Jay-Z, Founder, Roc Nation; and John Skipper, EVP for Content at ESPN.

- Tuesday is the most popular day for Twitter activity, with the majority of the tweets occurring between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. (Does this surprise you--who wants to tweet on Mondays?)
