were able to actually get that in so that worked out pretty well. you can see the tire pressure and we were also supposed to fly into lake tahoe, they had snow squalls, and we ended up flying into reno, nevada instead. so that was kind of crazy. right now we're at the four corners doing monster monday, 13 states in one day. we're in the four corners, so look down here. okay. i'm in four corners, utah. i'm in four corners, colorado. i'm in four corners, new mexico and i'm in four corners arizona. four states, baby! four states. just like that. >> and they all have the same temperature. all the same temperatures as you pointed out earlier today. >> actually -- arizona. it's 23 degrees in utah. it's 24 in colorado and it's 26 in new mexico.
>> that's the way it works. >> takes your neck of the woods to a whole new level. >> we watched that video. look like you were in the car on the ipad while sean was fixing the tire. >> no, no, i was outside. i was supervision, and if you note in my periscope you'll not only see that. you'll also see -- you'll also see matt greenefield. >> stop doing this. >> you've got to see matt. matt could be a plumber. let's just say that. >> owe mooned everyone. >> i was checking what the leak was and we saw what your leak was. >> oh, oh. >> okay. that's a knockout punch. that's a knockout punch. >> fight's over. >> oh, mr. roker. we'll go back to you in a second and get that weather from you at four corners. >> so cool. >> isn't it. >> i think dylan is actually doing the weather. >> that's great. she's the best. >> we read the notes for the show.
>> i'm not doing the weather. >> we knew, we knew. >> yes, you are. >> trying to make it a surprise. >> yeah, yeah. >> the prettier surprise. >> nice work out there. 13 states today, 13 states. going to be a crazy monday. let's talk about "snl" saturday night, a lot of anticipation and a lot of people excited. >> you've doesn't show. >> i heard about it. about what happened on saturday and hosting "snl." first. >> do we have to guess. >> as predicted my mr. trump himself. biggest overnight ratings since early 2012. the ratings up 50% for this season from the other shows this fall because mr. trump was there. >> okay. >> and in the monologue donald was joined by two trump doubles. check it out. >> you think you're this terrific person. you think you're this. you think you're that, bup, bup, ba. you're being very naive and
quite frankly you're fired. >> they don't have my talent, my money or especially my good looks, but you know what? they are not bad, and we're going to have a lot of fun tonight. >> you're a racist. >> who the hell -- i knew this was going to happen. who is that? >> trump's a racist! [ applause ] >> it's larry david. what are you doing, larry? >> i heard if i yelled that they would give me $5,000. >> that was larry david. >> yes. >> in the opening segment as bernie sanders, came back for the monologue, and there was a group protesting in the city and anybody who yelled that trump is a racist is $5,000. that's how "snl" handled it, and they said they are actually going to give larry david the five grand. >> which he needs, struggling for 5 grand. >> i suspect he will. what's that like to be on "snl"
>> this slow is really crazy. did a quick in and out piece and everything that has to @o with the show is fantastic. it actually is. very much a parallel to wwe. that performing in front of a on. kind of like what you guys do 10,000. everything changes so fast and everything happens so quick and you get handed something, oh, here you go. go for it and everybody is changing costumes and everything is upside down but it all goes together and i will give it to "saturday night live" they do political satire as good or they kill it. every time an election comes around, every time something is politically involved they have best take on it. they really do a great job. >> i love how you brought me and willie into this wwe show, millions of phones. >> just a little show you do is similar to that. >> i think one of the things that people like the best of the shows if you look across the web what, people were interested in.
in "snl's" blake parody. you used to call me on the cell phone does he dance like this called me on the cell phone this >> there you go. bling saw the same dance move in 11 or 12 years ago. locks down his feet and gets his butt up and out a little bit. >> that's a lot of analysis. >> it's trump. going to call it the trump. no? >> you've been trumped. >> i'm ending it. thing. >> already been a thing. have you seen the polls. he'll remind that. >> i don't think dancing to that has contributed to that. >> a lot of people who support him believe that even though,
that there was a little much for a presidential candidate that it brought out a different side him so maybe it will work, i don't know. something else that caught our eye. this gator capture, happened in the great state of texas in sugarland, actually the name of the city, where people were shocked to find a 12-foot long 100 1 88 hundred-pound alligator. this was in a parking lot with the a little towel over him. a professional gator wrangler actually captured the gator. >> wow. >> now been taken to the alligator farm and we show you to pose the question to the great jon cena. what would you do? >> i'm going to take the night off from that one and let godzilla be godzilla and praise him in all his alligator glory. that thing is a monster. >> would you just say no. >> that alligator wrangler. she was quite skilled and brave. borderline insane i would have to say.
>> first sought video-of-the-gator and saw it him. that's what she does. >> dove right in hon that one. >> as i've been saying all dreyer is here. >> because we knew that. >> i'm here. >> what do you do, the weather or something? >> i don't know what's going on. i looked at a thing or two and it is raining in the southeast where actually some heavier pockets of rain could lead to some isolated flash flooding. just keep in mind the ground is very saturated in this area so we do have flash flood watches in effect because of those heavier pockets of rain that we're expecting off and on throughout the day. this area of low pressure will make its way up the east coast and we'll see some heavy rain through north carolina later today and then it moves through virginia as we go into tomorrow and eventually up into the northeast as we go into tuesday evening. we could see some pockets of heavier rain that could end up with about as much as three inches, especially along the east coast of north carolina. up here doesn't look like much >> good monday morning, everyone.

a politician to solve the problem, but he starts to understand and in a very human level what they are going through, you know. it's not about the miners down there. it's like my brother, my father, and it becomes so human in that way that this man goes through a real transformation. >> i want you to promise me you do something! >> i can promise you we're going to do everything we did. >> and juliette, it was as much about the stories going on below ground as it was what was happening above ground and camp hope. they were the ones who kept hope alive. >> well, they were the first ones, the women were the first ones to be at gate and yelling. they wouldn't stop shouting and say if this isn't justice we need to know what's going on. >> the men lost weight to play the part but antonio had his own technique. >> every time i would -- i just
and it actually looked very good because actually you have to be 15, 20 seconds at a time, and then you go off. >> speaking of food, lou, you're a foodie, and i know that you like to cook on set. did you do any of the cooking? >> no disrespect, but they are used to feeding truckers and farmers. plain tan for every meal. i felt like "above a blue" saute s tans, boiled plantans and at end of the day i was probably feeding 30, 40 people. miners. >> it belongs to the world and we all followed it when it was happening and the fact that it had a grace resolution was for all the humanity, sort of a big hope in a heart so being there and surrounded by such a cast, it was fantastic.

two important studies to tell you about this morning that could affect your health, and one suggests a potential link between vegetable oil and cancer, and the other finds that many over-the-counter medications may not really work. >> so we called in our trusted nbc medical contributor dr. natalie azar to help us sort this out. natalie, good morning. >> nice to see you guys, good morning. >> let's launch into this new study. vegetable oils and a possible link to cancer. go behind the headlines. what's going on here. >> basically what i want to say from the outset this is not necessarily new news. i can't say that it's completely meritless, but what i want to say is this. just because something can cause a chemical reaction meaning that if you heat up vegetable oil that is sunflower or corn oil at real, really high temperatures it can release or turn into a potentially toxic substance which is called an aldehyde and going from that chemical reaction and saying that this has an increased risk of cancer or heart disease or dementia is way too much of a leap so from the study that was reported we're certainly not making any
statements of that sort. you can use vegetable oil. moderation. the study also went on to say to perhaps use lard for cooking and things like that, things we don't necessarily recommend because of the saturated fat >> okay. about this cold and cough medicine, what do -- i found this very interesting. >> yeah. i don't know if you guys use this stuff, but i certainly pseudoephedrine which is the active compound in medicines like sudafed and add ville cold and sinus are incredibly effective as treating nasal congestion. >> i use both of those. >> exactly. in 2005 pseudoephedrine containing things like pseudoephedrine cold and sinus, for example, were placed behind the counter. you could no longer reach and grab them without giving your name and information. the reason is that people can actually make methamphetamine out of pseudoephedrine, so the issue here was that so what was used or has been used in its place more regularly is this
thing fouled phenylf-for instance, things in dimetapp and brands like this and the study looked at 500 people, put them on placebo or the phenyleffrin and found it was no better than the placebo so the issue is should fda be keeping phenylf-for instance on the market for nasal congestion well. you can still go and get these things, go to the pharmacist. give your name and i.d. >> it is a process but can you still get the products with pseudoephedrine. >> they want to make sure people aren't abusing it for that process. >> people wonder about herbal over the counter. >> right. also something especially as parent you want to be very much aware of, that the american academy of pediatrics does not recommend over-the-counter cough and cold remedies for children under the age of four. >> okay. >> so what does that mean? >> it means all those like, you know, things to help people help
don't really recommend for young kids primarily because a lot of these things can actually contain multiple different ingredients and know what's safe for your child and what not and what we recommend for children is you can give the way i see it, you have two choices; the easy way or the hard way. you could choose a card that limits where you earn bonus or, you could make things easier on yourself. that's right, the quicksilver card from capital one. with quicksilver you earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. so, let's try this again. what's in your wallet? you never know when it'll be your moment to shine. so don't trust your smile to any regular toothpaste. improved crest 3dtwhite brilliance removes 5 times morerstains than the red box. try the whole collection for a

taking a look at headlines, engineers are at a mississippi ihop restaurant this morning where the ground caved in in the park pag lot swallowing 15 vehicles. it happened near meridian neither alabama border. the massive hole is 50 feet wide and 600 feet long. witnesses say they heard several loud booms, and the power was knocked out before the ground opened up. thankfully in all of that no one was injured. the ihope had just opened, by the way, last week. a high school sexting scandal in colorado is raising a red flag for parents and schools around the country. officials in canyon city, colorado are investigating whether 100 or more students

is you see this mother and son who love each other very much and have a very complicated relationship and all that stuff just doesn't miraculously go away because she's dying. >> i would imagine someone pointing this out with a personal connection and get a chance to go home with your three kids and life and it's like hug time. >> a very hectic. we shot it for 18 days in new york city and then they went to mexican for the mexican shoot, but, yeah, it was -- it was such a whirlwind we just basically didn't see much of our families for three weeks. went home and went to sleep. >> you're used to being busy. you do everything. >> i'm directing a play in previews at the new group. mario camtone, my "sex in the city" alum. >> and guest starring in "the >> when do you sleep? >> sometimes i sleep. >> do you have time to relax and

>> that's horrible. >> do you like the beach. >> yeah, i do. >> do you like the beach? >> with a body like think can't like the beach that much. only so much you can like the beach. if we looked like we would like the beach. james camp taking you to james camp take a look at this beach photo. >> beautiful. >> jam a aican me crazy. >> beautiful turquoise water. >> take a look at picture from oyster.com. that's what that beach actually looks like. >> well, i -- i don't like that blue thing there. >> not just that, what about the cement wall. barely any beach there. >> but the wall could have been behind the person who took the photograph. >> exactly. >> they took it there, but it's about the perspective, about context. >> all right. >> it was really probably taken there. >> and on a sunny day. >> there's nobody in that photo. >> very isolated in the brochure. >> people there how are you going to get a spot on that
beach? >> okay. >> you need rom to, you know, do your thing. finally we want to take you to the dominican republic. >> okay. >> this one -- now, this is one those situations where the photo is actually pretty accurate of the location, take a look. >> that's beautiful. >> you will notice in marketing photos and you should always be aware of that, never show people, never show what it looks like with people. watch what oyster went there when there's actually people there. >> that's a petry dish. >> looks kind fun, i don't know. >> people having a good time. >> can't get a seat around the bar. >> that's a lot of people squeezed into that small space. >> that's a lot of people. >> what do we do in. >> be skeptical of carefully cropped photos. photos really cropped, show a corner of the room, show a corner of the pool, you want to be aware of that. also, ask about what you don't see. if there are photos of the bathroom, or, you know, like when you go on a hotel website, showing you the bathroom, the lounge, you want to look for that, not just single feltos
every once in a while and the best idea is to not just trust the hotel and resort websites, go to oyster.com and trip adviser and consumers all the time go on these trips and take their own photos and you can look at consumer reviews as well. >> rats, we're out time. come back live because i wanted to know how do you fight back as a consumer if the pictures don't match. >> switch room and many times complain to the manager, they may even give you a refund. >> do your homework and it will be all right. >> thank you, jeff. that was awesome. >> we're still live and easy appetizersur guests will gobble
