jane krakowski. >> doing great. >> that's the universal symbol for i'm doing great. >> really. >> it is great to hear that you're filming the third season of "unbreakable." i highly recommend after tuesday just get in your bed and watch every episode. it is the most joyous show on >> seriously, it brings me so much happiness. >> it is so joyous to film as well. >> really? >> we're a month or two in of filming season three which i am so excited about. in the netflix plan it doesn't come out for a little while. but it is a great thing to take a break from all of this election stress and curl up and hope for the best on wednesday. >> jacqueline white, your character, kind of this self-involved -- >> i don't know what you're talking about.
socialite. what's her deal now? what's going on? >> well, she's fallen in love with someone new and she's trying to make real social change, al. >> you're trying to be a better mom. >> she's trying to be a better mom, a better person. we're currently trying to get the washington redskins to change their name because of her native american heritage. we're in the midst of all of that where clearly hilarity will ensue. >> of course! that's what we expect. >> when your character was si watch. it is the best. and also she loves me. in movie theaters. >> your broadway show. >> thank you very much, al. i had to go all the way to broadway. i had to do an entire broadway show to make it in a movie. >> this is going to be shown in movie theaters for one night only. >> they filmed the show live and it will air on december 1st. >> has that ever been done
i think they did it once with the show "company." sort of to bring broadway to the country. >> i love that. >> i'm really excited about it. it will be december 1st in 500 theaters around america at 7:00 p.m. it is just wonderful for us to sort of relive it again. >> congratulations on that. >> thank you. >> what did you do this weekend? >> what did i do. i can't even remember. oh! i went to see the movie "moonlight." i went to --t it is getting all of this buzz. this is -- phenomenal. >> it is not what you expect. >> it is not what you expect. i've never seen anything like it. i think it is going to be the front-runner for the oscars best picture. i've already put it in. but it is a sensitive portrayal of this young man's life and his journey. i don't want to give too much away. but it is set in florida, atlanta.
it's beautiful. i was with a friend. we were -- it is that kind of movie afterwards you keep talking about. and you're filling in the holes. it stays with you. trust me. go see it. i'm going to be sitting down with the cast for an interview coming up soon. but it is stunning. it is a stunning work of art. >> wow. >> what did you do? >> didn't do much. i had a very emotional week with the world series. you know. and this weekend -- >> you were there! w it was so exciting to be part of history, to watch this. to say i was there. i can't remember in my lifetime ever seeing anything like this. >> i had to be up really early the next morning and i was up until 1:00 a.m. new york time watching the game. i was like, this is the best game i've ever seen. you couldn't turn away. just to feel the passion of two teams wanting it really so bad. playing their hearts out. >> and great history for both teams. whoever won, it was going to be a great story.
decompress. there is a great little place up near where we live called six depot. it is an old train station. they turned it into a coffee shop. my son and i just had a nice little breakfast yesterday morning, hanging out. he had waffle with nutella and fruit. >> nicky's eating like a champ! >> please. he finished that, then half of mine. >> i can't keep up with this. >> i >> i can't keep feeding you. >> he had a side of bacon besides. he ate my bacon. but it was just nice. it was quiet. it was kind of cool. it was very fall like. just a nice chilled -- >> i got a text from a friend who was there and said, al roker is sitting right here. i wanted to say, well, go say hi. we're at that point in our lives where people connect us even on our weekends and time off. i see the text. oh, al roker is here.
did you see "snl" saturday night? >> i sure did. >> what are your thoughts on -- >> my weekend actually included a little reunion with my friend, alec baldwin. i made a little guest appearance on his game show called "match game." >> which is a terrific show. >> then that evening he went on to do his appearance on "snl." i didn't know what it was going to be but i knew they were doing something special. it was so awesome. i felt slightly touched by it. >> a lot of people had that reaction. >> okay. really? i wasn't like that bizarre? >> you can still be both. we're friends. i can do that. >> there is this sort of over election stress -- stressful situation right now so i thought it was -- i was oddly moved by it that they broke the fourth wall and spoke as themselves and said let's just all pull together as america. >> what sta like as an actor to do that? have you ever done that, broke that wall to give a message? >> i'm sure i have. i mean i want to say i have no idea. i have no idea what it is like
you'll have to call my friend, alec, and ask him what that's like. >> but they were so terrific. obviously alec baldwin as donald trump, kate mckinnon as hillary clinton. and they find -- they've just done such a tour de force between these two characters. but take a look at what happens when they finally broke character. >> i'm sorry, kate. i just hate yelling all this stuff at you like this. >> yeah. i right? this whole election has been so mean. >> i mean i just feel gross all the time. don't you guys feel gross all the time about this? >> woo! >> you know what i think can help us? let's get out of here. >> what? where will we go? >> you'll see. ? >> and then they make a break for it. they get to times square.
they're running away actually. but they end up in times square. just go against character and it is just -- i think it really was brilliant. >> yeah, it was. >> so unexpected. >> yeah. then when they got back in the studio they made a plea for people to vote. it didn't come off sanctimonious. it just was powerful. here it is. >> and now it is time to get out there and vote. none of this will have mattered if you don't vote. >> and we can't tell you who to vote for but get a chance to choose what kind of country we want to live in. and live from new york, it's saturday night! >> yeah! they had such a brilliant season. and all the other sketches that they did. like "celebrity family feud," "political edition" was incredible. >> i thought bill murray singing "go cubs go" was going to have you on fire. >> someone's going to win the presidency obviously in the few days but i don't want alec's character to go away and i don't
>> no matter what happens on tuesday night, neither of those people are going away. >> so what are you going to do? >> this is the first time i'm not live. because i've got to be back on here in the morning. usually i'm live on the ice rink when the numbers come in. i'm going to be home. i am going to host a little get-together with friends and watch it all play out. we've got democracy plaza out here. but we were talking, this feels like when i leave this show and go over to msnbc of course to cover politics. i'm like everyone else, when is it going to be over. election is like five weeks. ours is five years. it's like five weeks. >> but their bacon's not very good. so it's -- hey, results start at 7:00 p.m. eastern, led by lester holt, savannah guthrie, tom brokaw and chuck todd. >> how are you watching the election? >> i'll be filming that day so i'll probably still be with all my cast mates and filming. but it is curious, this morning -- because i have a
with me? i wanted to bring him with me to experience what voting is. because in kindergarten they are talking about the election. i felt like a big step to bring my son for rt first time with me obviously. he's not able to vote yet. >> legally. not legally. >> i saw sunday morning on one of the programs, i didn't know this, for like 40 years they've done this survey of elementary school kids and they have only been wrong twice in president. and this year the kids said hillary clinton. but i believe it's been 44 years they've been doing this with school kids around america and they've been voting. that's interesting. >> awesome. well, there you go. >> so on the ice rink will the colors change? >> yes. democracy plaza. >> i know what i'm doing. i'm watching nbc. >> of course you are! as will the rest of america. here's a little question for you. can you guess what the longest running scripted tv series of all time is? here's a hint. jane and i have been on it.

yes. very much so. by any measure. >> have you ever been ticketed? >> i don't know what you're asking me. who? where? >> she was speeding on that yellow bike. that i didn't get! let's check your weather, see what's going on. and you can see for "today," near record highs in the pacific northwest. unseasonably mild around the great lakes. heavy rain down through texas so don't be speeding. also on into the gulf coast, plenty of sunshine along the eastern seaboard. tomorrow, election day. we've s weather generally speaking up and down the east coast. we do have some showers around ohio. all the way down to the gulf. >> a rollercoaster morning of morning lows this morning. yesterday we started off in the mid 40s, and 23 this morning in orange, jaffrey, 25?. boston, mid 30s. but still a chillier start for us below the average lows.

so we all gained an extra hour of sleep yesterday. we should all feel rested and refreshed. >> we should, but here to tell us about that and more, nbc news medical contributor dr. natalie aczar. nice to see you. let's just jump right into this sleep that that extra hour was beneficial to us. >> honestly, i have to tell you that i thought i benefited from it yesterday. i did feel like i got an extra hour of sleep. the research would maybe suggest otherwise. specifically that for the week after we either fall back or spring forward, that your sleep is really disrupted for the next week, meaning that you have trouble falling asleep at night, there's middle of the night waking. you're getting up earlier and that the people who have the most difficulty with this are the larks. those are the early risers. and also people who sleep generally less than seven and a half hours tend to feel the disruption more than other people. >> so how do you get back on track? >> the know what? the same kind of advice that we
newborns. it is get them on a schedule, get back on a schedule, take an afternoon nap. this is the one place where we do maybe advise an afternoon nap could help. also get regular exercise. basically just re-establishing your schedule. i will point out that some studies previously have shown a little up tick of cardiac events or heart attacks in the spring, especially. that has to do more with sleep deprivation. not to alarm anybody, but again, the message here is -- >> too late. >> -- is your sleep important? yes. again, lots of research has been done on thisle saving business and we're not going to go there. but it is not cut and dry. >> what about the research thino the calories you consume and sleep. >> there's been a correlation with lack of sleep with lack of hormones which can affect how much you eat. this looked at 11 studies, almost 200 individuals or
that's 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 hours of sleep. that's a significant amount. ate up to or consumed up to 385 calories more than people who didn't. >> a day? >> a day. in a 24-hour period. that equated to about 4 1/2 slices of bread a day. leaving the researchers to conclude that sleep deprivation could actually affect your risk for obesity simply by the intake of more calories. i thought that was super interesting. and people ate more fat and less ei the same. so rule, sleep your eight hours. >> worried well. >> this is interesting. this has to do with, we know cardiovascular risk can be influenced by people's health behaviors -- diet, tobacco, smoking. this specifically looked at if you have health anxiety -- that hypochondriac worried about constantly getting sick, et cetera, could increase your risk for having ischemic heart disease. we know anxiety in general can be a risk factor for heart

right now some 50,000 runners are recovering after taking part in the 40th annual new york city marathon yesterday. one of those amazing athletes, had an >> and al was the one who inspired her to lose 130 pounds. tina is here today for what she thinks is a tour of the studios. >> she doesn't know we have a surprise for her, but first we want you to hear tina's surprising story. >> been overweight my entire life. dreamt of being an athlete my entire life and i'm finally going to live my dream and run the new york city marathon. 26 years ago, we lost my dad
i knew it was time for a change. i was inspired after al roker had his gastric bypass to go and visit the surgeon. i decided to have the vertical sleeve surgery. i was up two days after walking around the neighborhood. i had to just start moving. i had always dreamed of being a runner. so i started training for my first 5k. after i ran my first 5k, i knew i was hooked and i was going to do a 10k. i did several set my sights on a half marathon. then suddenly had run nine half marathons. i lost 130 pounds in 11 months. i was at my goal weight. i had blogged about my journey since the very beginning and i put a post up in 2010 about how al roker ran the new york marathon and i remember seeing a clip on him training on the treadmill at 2:00 in the morning and his job starts at 4:00 in the morning and my job didn't.
i read my blog again and it had said i was going to make him proud one day and run the new york city marathon. so i decided that's exactly what i was going to do. three months ago, about half-way through training for new york, i lost my husband to a massive heart attack on his bike, on his way to work. completely unexpected. and i didn't know how i was going to go on but i really knew that he would have wanted me to just keep running. bed, setting my alarm at 4:45 and doing my long runs and showing up as hard as it was. running has really saved my life and i had no idea what it was going to prepare me for. training for a marathon taught me that even when you think you can't go on, you do. when i became a volunteer coach for the atlanta track club, they really have inspired me, especially through these difficult times this community
me. my coach, amy, is a former olympian and has been by my side from 5k to marathon. >> tina is one of those amazing positive people that comes and does things not just for herself. she's someone that puts everybody in front of herself and now we're going to put her front and center and make her cross this finish line that she's been dreaming about for a very long time. >> we're also raising money for kilometer kids which is our organization for teenagers teaching them basically how to make great healthy lifestyles. i think about where i was and i think about ar i am now. and i'm really proud of myself because i never gave up. every excuse in the book i could have used and i had a couple of really good ones. i'm going to run are the new york marathon for my husband. i'm going to keep that promise to al roker and i'm going to do this for myself, most of all.
tina! >> what an inspirational story. tina is actually backstage right now and she has no idea that she's going to meet the man who inspired her through all of this. al, are you ready to make her day? >> what an amazing story. come on, let's go meet her. oh, my gosh. oh, tina! how are you? congratulations. oh, my goodness. >> >> god bless you. >> thank you. you're amazing. thank you for all the inspiration and for sticking to it. >> well, thank you for what you did. listen, when i crossed the finish line i was thinking about my parents and my dad who made me promise on his deathbed to get in shape. i know you've got to be thinking about your husband. >> i do. and my dad. >> and your dad. >> i just want to stay alive and be healthy for them and the rest
inspiration you are? >> i hope so. i just want to give it all back. >> that's so wonderful. what are you thinking right now? >> i'm just so happy to be here. i'm so happy to meet you. this is a dream come true. >> i just want to say, congratulations. i know you called al your hero, but what is it like to meet me today? great, right? >> how great is this? >> congratulations. you really are such an inspiration to everyone. and you d >> it was hard. mile 25 -- >> they never tell you that. they never tell you that. if you can get through that, you can do it. >> thank you, honey. thank you for doing this. >> we are so, so very proud of you. >> thank you. thank you. >> up next, we are going to get -- would you like to learn more about jane krakowski? >> i would! >> i think we should bring tina in to help us play the game "take a crack at it" after these messages. >> okay, great.
