5:00 am
were investigating when it all went down. >> kim: and exclusive. "consumer reports" checking out those hover boards, because they've been dominating the news as of late with their safety records. what did the experts find in "consumer reports"' labs? you'll want to watch this one, before you buy a hover board. >> dana: good morning. it is 5:00 a.m. and it is fight night. >> kim: it certainly is. tom hawley, you've covered a lot of these throughout the years. we're in a betting continue. do you want to place a wager with who wins tonight, a friendly wager on live tv. >> tom: are we talking about the debates? >> kim: yes, we are. >> dana: he wasn't sure. may weather was in action at the venetian, no, donald trump against ted cruz. >> tom: those seem to be the two that are at the top of the card,
5:01 am
other. but for zingers, i give trump the edge. however, will cruz come out as more substantive. >> kim: maybe chris christie will surprise us all. >> tom: he's with the big kids. >> kim: he's at the big kids table. you do pay tanks. -- pay attention. "the voice" is tonight. it's going done so hard to pick a winner. they all sound like perfection and angelic, but we're going to get you prepared for the big finale. >> dana: fight night, the final four in action. >> tom: i like the glasses. i have give him the edge right there, coming. >> dana: you're saying "the voice" comes down to the best eyewear. >> tom: all other things are equal. >> dana: i think if you go with the face, you probably have to pick that young lady. >> kim: she's gorgeous. >> dana: good looking. >> kim: 67 degrees in central park in new york yesterday. they tied a record. >> dana: jealous. >> kim: yes, i'm jealous, because it was really cold this
5:02 am
door, by our standards it was cold. >> dana: we have colder temperatures moving in for tomorrow, and for thursday morning as well. lake mead marina, you can see the christmas tree and one of the boats out there twinkling this morning. 42 degrees currently at the marina. winds out of the south-southwest at 2 and niece are the current temperatures. we're into the 30's right now generally across the valley. 39 degrees if downtown las vegas, 33 in anthem and these will be very close to the freezing mark, 24 hours from now. high of 49 degrees. more winds, but neotears strong as yesterday. 15 to 25 miles per hour. tom? >> tom: we have nothing going on in the way of accidents at least, so we like that. we'll start you out here to the northwest and 215 interchange, where you have road work, but not slowing anything down. cruising in by the rainbow-summerlin interchange and spaghetti bowl, an easy drive, 11 minutes, 515 and the southeast part of the valley, that's a 13-minute drive. and we'll look outside, see what
5:03 am
it looks fantastic, with traffic moving up to speed. >> kim: maybe they're watching local news to see how they're playing here in las vegas. those republican presidential candidates, they're probably up and getting ready for the big day. >> dana: i'm guessing they may be sleeping in, because they have a big night. >> kim: could go either way. >> dana: or maybe they'll take a nap later on today. craig figener is the man in the know, he joins us live from the venetian this morning. looks like you're in italy, my friend. >> the reporter: i am not in italy, i'm behind the venetian. i'm going to go with you two, a power nap would be in order before the big date. two important things to keep in mind. this is the first presidential debate among the republicans since the terrorist attacks and the san bernardino shooting, the mass shooting there, so expect terrorism and national security to be big on the discussion topics. now, donald trump was in town last night, i spoke to hups off
5:04 am
some protesters, some of them yelling dump trump before they were thrown out of the ramp. it's expected, national security will get a lot of attention this evening. >> they are doing this, because they are radical jihaddists and they have to be confronted and defeated and that's why we need to have the strongest military in the world, so we can confront any enemy, anywhere, at any time that threatens our national security. >> the reporter: back here live, along the las vegas strip, you can see just some of the national and local media from all over the country, and of course, the network newscasts that are here to cover this debate, which will happen at the venetian this evening, it is the cnn republican presidential debate, the last of 2015. now a little bit on the polls. trump's numbers are remaining high, he has 41% support if a national survey of republicans.
5:05 am
survey that included ted cruz and ted cruz is topping the polls in iowa. that could change tonight or remain the same tonight, depending on the performance of the candidates, all eyes will be of course, on trump, who will be at the center of the main debate, but a lot of people paying very close attention to cruz and rubio tonight, and of course, governor chris christie. i'm craig figener reportingry just outside the venetian. back to you in our las vegas studio. >> kim: craig, thank you very much for that, and i saw some of the pundits when i first woke up this morning, talking about the actual stage in the podiums, an one guy said he watched tomorrow of the debates, but never walked the stage until yesterday. he said they're just inches apart from one another. it doesn't really come across that way on tv, but he could not believe how close the candidates are on stage. >> dana: another pundit was saying that they expect that ted cruz probably will not fight back necessarily, if donald trump goes after them. he may reflect donald trump's criticism with humor.
5:06 am
will fight back tonight, because he doesn't want to necessarily go that route with donald trump. donald trump wins in that war. >> kim: could be a battle of the wits. they're both very sharp, both very quick with the wit, and i think we're going to be able to see that on full display tonight. >> dana: coming up, the reason the commissioner of baseball did not decide to reinstate pete rose and what pete rose is going to do about it a few hours from now. we'll have that story. >> kim: it's a local one that he's doing a few hours from now. and then these hover boards, hot holiday item, right? "consumer reports" just put them through the paces in their labs because they've been dominating the headlines. you're going to want to see what the experts found and we're going to share it after a quick timeout. >> dana: they're saying they're not only dangerous because they catch fire, there's other reasons for it too. and a big premiere of "star wars," last night, about a four n hour drive from las vegas, there's jay jay abrams, the director. what do the stars have to say about this coming up. we also have a check of your weather forecast.
5:07 am
how low we will go in terms of temperatures, as you "wake up
5:08 am
i'm going to stand by you moving a tv is a real pain. would that be easier if i had prism tv from centurylink? sure. i've got centurylink's wireless set-top box,
5:09 am
let me show you. i could move it here... or here... even here. switch to centurylink. get the prism essential tv package with internet for only $70 a month for one year with autopay enrollment. didn't even break a sweat.
5:10 am
you want to say, but the words fall out >> kim: that's such a great song. >> dana: say what you want to say. you may get that from the republican candidates tonight. >> kim: certainly applies, doesn't it. 5:10 a.m. and it also applies here, the man, who is major league baseball's all-time hits leader will not be reinstated by the league any time soon. >> dana: baseball commissioner rob man ford says pete rose has yet to accept full responsibility for his mistakes when he bet on baseball. rose originally banned in 1989 when the league determined that he bet on games while managing the cincinnati reds and he he even admitted to betting on games in 2004. rose will address the decision publicly today at 11:00 a.m.
5:11 am
pete rose bar and grill. that is located very close to hawkins hangingharmon and las vegas boulevard. >> kim: he'll be saying what he wants to say, and we'll have that at noontime like dana mentioned. now this this, it's going to happen. a lot of people were calling for army special beau bergdahl to be court-martialed? it was made official yesterday, the big announcement. we don't know the date of that big court-martial. he disappeared from his base in afghanistan in june of 2009. he was held captive by the taliban until the united states released five taliban detainees in exchange for beau bergdahl and that happened in may of last year. six troops died in the months after the release of bergdahl and they died partly in the search of berg daly. we found out a lot of his state of mind through the popular podcast called serial, when beau bergdahl said the moment he
5:12 am
big trouble and he started to think like jason bourne. in the end, he's not jason bourne at all. he's being court-martialed. >> dana: now we take you to oklahoma, where a man there drives his truck into a hotel lobby on purpose. this is -- we take you inside now, we can see a couple of people diving forever their safety. >> kim: holy mackerel. >> dana: thank goodness they got out of the way at the last second. he is being held on assault and battery charges. why did he do this? his credit card was declined at the hotel. that's the second time we've seen that, but this from a different angle. luckily, no one was seriously injured, but $1 million bail for this guy, and that seems reasonable. >> kim: what an idiot. anger management, medication, something. 5:12 a.m. hover boards are all over the news, because some have burst into flames. well, the federal government is investigating the cause of those
5:13 am
boards/scooters, and "consumer reports" just evaluated three of the big ones, confirming they can be dangerous, but not just because of reports of fire. >> celebrities help make electric scooters, or hover boards, this year's hot holiday gift. >> the funky if you can. >> the reporter: with some models costing $1,500 and up and so often, with popular gadgets, manufacturers then make similar devices that are sold under dozens of names, with various prices. and that makes it tough to know exactly what you're buying. well, "consumer reports" tested out three of the boards, and they're at different pricings, they want to do a little compare-contrast. they started with the swagway for $400, also the $600 mono rover r two. engineers took them apart to
5:14 am
different, the construction of these scooters nearly identical. and all of the scooters/boards that "consumer reports" evaluated use the same type of batteries. >> kim: they're all. >> they're all powered by lithium ion batteries, a type of battery that has caused fires in other devices in the past, but those instances are rare. >> kim: all of the "consumer con scooters use subtle shifts in weight to steer the board in the direction you want to do and it does take getting used to. the best way to start is with a spotter, but all riders did catch on pretty quickly. >> the subtle body movements are easy to control at low speed, but when you get going faster and you hit a bump and it causes you to shift your balance, you can very easily lose control. >> kim: as bernie learned firsthand during his speed test, wiping out on a seemingly smooth surveys. >> it went that way and i was going that way.
5:15 am
will confirm why "consumer reports" recommends wearing a helmet, pads, and guards while you're riding any electric scooter/hover board. a lot of you look like that, myself included, trying to snowboard for the first time. well, the consumer product safety commission has reports of 29 emergency room visits related to the scooter/hover boards. they have call them scooters, because they're not actually hovering above anything. they include 13 fractures and the agency is investigating ten scooter fires like the federal government. also, be aware, we've had this before or in the broadcast, but it bears repeating, especially during the busy travel time. several airlines, airports, and also malls have banned those hover boards. some cities won't even allow them in public areas. >> dana: how was christmas? great. bobby broke his wrist. >> tom: and caught on fire. >> dana: it looks painful. >> kim: you can't go anywhere with it, you have the hover board, nope, can't do that here,
5:16 am
>> tom: as you indicated, perhaps a little bit of a mismarketing direction. if i'm buying a hover board, i would expect a hover. i saw back to the future 2, i know how they work. >> dana: they have some boards that have magnets on the bottom, but you have to be on a specially designed floor. these are more like scooters without handles. >> kim: that's what "consumer reports" refers to them as, scooters over hover boards. >> tom: at least people aren't banging into each other on the roadways. i will show you a spot we've looked at in the past because there's road work for months along decatur along sahara and charleston. all rains are lanes are open, so smiles for people on decatur to suffered for many months. summerlin parkway and 215, 11 minutes to the downtown area coming in from the southeast on the 515, 13 will get you there. outside vow right now, from one of our fast cams, no worries on
5:17 am
>> dana: when you said smiles, that reminded me of ricardo month balm, welcome to fantasy islands. smile everyone. two people in the newsroom are going, yeah, i remember that show. so from the north, this airflow brought us much cooler temperatures and we saw this yesterday at lake mead marina. look at how rock the boats out there at the marina, but as soon as the sun goes down, the lights on this christmas tree pop up, but we have a northerly airflow and as a result, we're going to see cooler than normal days. current wind speeds, not as strong as yesterday, but noticeable at the lakes, 14 miles per hour. in summerlin on the west side at 19 miles an hour. and we had wind gusts yesterday into the 40's, not as strong today, but still around for another day tomorrow. they should be gone. here's the wind bag. you see that counterclockwise swirl of air, that's the storm system spinning near the four corners and slowly spinning away, so that thing continues to get away from us, the wind
5:18 am
behind that, if you look closely on the satellite doppler, you see that northerly airflow and when we get that, we get below normal temperatures, so today's highs, not as warm as yesterday. 49 in overton. 53 in laughlin. 46 degrees in sandy valley. tonight it's going to be chilly, below freeze, st. george, mesquite, overton, alamo, indian springs, beatty, tonopah, 28 degrees and here in las vegas valley, at 53 yesterday, we're going to top it out at 49. breezes 15 to 20 miles per hour and down to freezing tomorrow morning and on thursday morning. high of 49 again tomorrow. we rebound into the upper 50's on friday, lower 60's on saturday for the las vegas bowl. >> kim: all right. dana, thank you. at 5:18 a.m., we're about to get son insight into all of your -- some insight into all of your minds, us included, because we're nevadans, with a little
5:19 am
king, live from the floor of the nasdaq. you have the big reveal, the most googled name item in the state of nevada for the year 2015 is -- >> the reporter: this list is put together every year. i love it. we get sound effects every day. always interesting. it found that in nevada, lamar odom googled more than any other state, of course, he made headlines in october when he was found unconscious at a brothel. nevada has ten other terms that were searched more than anything else. floyd mayweather, pit bull and the movie, san andreas. >> kim: a lot of people are probably in scramble mode making sure the packages get out on time and this is a big deadline day. >> the reporter: the cutoff for many shipping services especially those that won't break the bank is today, at least at the u.s. postal service, it says to make sure
5:20 am
december 25, today is the last day to send it standard. you have a few more days with u.p.s. and fedex, but those deadlines are by the end of this week for regular shipping, kim. >> kim: jane, there's also a lot of interest in this. if you want to have a buzz all day, there's now a product for that and we're not talking hottic beverages. we're talking caffeine. >> the reporter: we're talking caffeine, which can be better for us sometimes, especially when you work this shift. this will eliminate the caffeine crashes and it comes from nestle. the science behind it involves cubezones that break down during the day. so you can stay energized throughout the day. no word on when it will be released but we'll keep you posted on that. >> kim: we'll see you tomorrow on the program. 5:20 a.m. let's get you in the loop las vegas and voting continues until 9:00 a.m. this morning our time for those contestants on "the voice," the new winner is going to be crowned very soon.
5:21 am
hours ago, the singers perform solo twice and performed a christmas song and also performed with their coaches and one of the coaches in particular, really sang a different kind of tune. forever, face-to-face i'm going to be where the lights are shining on me like a rhine stone cowboy >> kim: oh, tonight's show is going to be even better than this one, and that's hard to top it, it's going to be star-studded with performances by justin bieber, the weekend, and then we're also going to find out the champion, all of the action starts at 8:00 p.m. tonight, right here on channel 3. but at 5:21 a.m., it's really braiden sunshinereallyabout last night. live pictures out of hollywood, where they had the big premiere of "star wars," the force

5:23 am
now we have this version headed your way, presidential style. you'll see president obama in action, when "wake up with the wagners" returns. >> tomorrow's debate is in las vegas. and of course, all of the candidates will be there early. we actually found out how will they be spending the day in las vegas before the debate begins. for instance, jeb bush will ask david copperfield to make him disappear, which is nice. if he could do it. next ben carson are go to a magic show. but gets thrown out when he ends up hypnotizing the magician. never happened before.
5:24 am
go to the 24- >> dana: at first i thought that was ted cruz with dynamite. is ted going to be bringing dynamite tonight against donald trump. i'm trying to sell this thing i guess. >> tom: it's going to be tremendous. >> dana: it is. >> kim: it is huge. the ratings are going to be great, so hopefully have nothing nasty to talk about right now. >> tom: i don't know how nasty it is, there is one accident in the far southwest valley, this is by mountain's edge, at star and buffalo to the far southwest and there was a report of an accident over here at 215 and i-15, camera was panning and zooming, nothing showing. we'll just show you a smooth commute, making it up to the spaghetti bowl, a 12-minute drive from there. >> dana: thank you, tom. from news 3, your weather authority, we have breezy conditions out there this
5:25 am
it's going to be a cold start to the day for the kiddos, mostly sunny, 43 this morning. 49 on the way home from school this afternoon. winds 15-25. >> kim: remember when jerry mcguire was leaving the office and he said don't worry, i'm not going to freak out. well, we had a freak outin the dmv. a woman goes ballistic. you'll see some of it.
