tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC September 7, 2016 12:37am-1:38am EDT
>> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- steven tyler -- star of "pitch," actress ali larter -- music from steven -tyler. featuring the 8g band with fred armisen and nate morton. ?? [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] great. so nice to be back from vacation. let's get to the news. the latest cnn poll has donald trump beating hillary clinton 45% to 43%. but the good news is the staffer who informed hillary is expected
donald trump said in an interview that aired today that hillary clinton would not make a good president because she does not have a presidential look. well, trump definitely looks like the president -- of a miami condo board. [ light laughter ] "make sure your kids get their tools -- their toys out of the pool." some experts are claiming that china's refusal to grant president obama a portable staircase to exit air force one during his visit over the political power play meant to show it can, quote, "make the american president go out of the ass of the plane." as opposed to our next president who would be the ass of the plane. [ laughter ] [ applause ] donald trump's latest campaign poster is attracting criticism online for using a photo of the trump children that people on social media are calling creepy. even scarier, eric, the one in the middle, wasn't even there that day.
apple is supposed to unveil the latest iphone tomorrow, which will reportedly do away with the traditional headphone jack. and this is convenient -- the included ear buds will come pre-lost. [ light laughter ] new york mets player wilmer flores excited fans this weekend after changing his walk-out music to the theme song from "friends." 'cause if there's one thing mets fans understand, it's when it your month, or even your year. [ laughter ] [ applause ] and finally, a national washington post survey found that donald trump has historically low support among college educated women. it's from their new segment "stuff you could have guessed." [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he is a rock 'n' roll legend. he has a number one debut solo album, "we're all somebody from
here to chat and perform for us, steven tyler, everybody. [ cheering ] she is one of the stars of the new drama on fox, "pitch." my good friend ali larter is stopping by tonight as well. [ cheers and applause ] so we got a good show. very exciting. you're here on a good night. before we get to that, we are now in the final stretch of the presidential campaign, the time for candidates to court voters who so far haven't been responding to their messages. and for donald trump that means black and latino voters. to see how hisre look." ?? [ applause ] >> seth: the polls have tightened in recent weeks, and to continue closing the gap with hillary, trump has been trying to reach out to constituencies that have so far rebuffed him, like african americans. trump has a well-documented history of stoking racial resentment and attracting the support of white nationalists, but apparently he is hoping he can overcome all of that by going to a church in detroit and
to a demi lovato concert. [ laughter ] also, i love how any time trump engages in even the slightest physical activity, he has to check to make sure his hair is still there. [ light laughter ] uh -- still, it wasn't as bad as trump supporter ben carson, who escorted trump to detroit, carson's hometown. because while everyone else in the church was dancing, carson, who is standing right up front, was caught checking his phone. [ audience ohs ] it's not a good sign when supporter gets caught acting like a white teenage girl. [ light laughter ] "brittany, put your phone down!' "sorry, mom, but church is lame, and so are you." [ light laughter ] trump is trying to capture the black vote. carson is trying to catch pokemon. [ light laughter ] that wasn't the only time carson proved to be a less than effective surrogate for trump during their trip to detroit. after a tour of carson's old neighborhood, he was asked what trump took away from the trip. but carson was clearly distracted.
be great, including our inner cities. >> and we just saw mr. trump here. i asked him how did it go? and he said great, and he said he learned a lot of things. what do you think he took away from today? >> my luggage. [ laughter ] uh -- hold on. >> okay, looks like dr. carson is going to try and find his luggage and will be right back with us. >> seth: that's a doctor. that man is a doctor. [ laughter ] and hopefully his patients never saw that reaction when carson "now, i'll just make an incision in the frontal lobe -- my pies!" [ laughter ] but ineffective surrogates aren't the only obstacles holding trump back in his bid to win over african american voters. there is also his years of questioning president obama's legitimacy and propagating the racist myth that he was born in africa. trump still to this day refuses to apologize or even acknowledge that president obama was born in the u.s., but he also knows that
so he is trying a new tactic. when asked about his history as a birther, he just says he doesn't want to talk about. >> i'm off that subject. i'm about jobs. i'm about the military. >> i don't talk about it anymore, and the problem with talking about it -- you talk about it, that's all people want to talk about. >> do you regret even bringing it up? >> i don't talk about it anymore. i don't talk about it anymore. >> do you regret bringing it up back then, though? >> i told you, i don't talk about it anymore. >> seth: what kind of an answer is that? you're a presidential candidate. not ben affleck being asked about "gili." [ laughter ] but being an old school birther hasn't stopped trump from trying to reach out to african american voters, tweeting yet another appeal over the weekend. quote, "to the african american community, the democrats have failed you for 50 years. high crime, poor schools, no jobs. i will fix it. vote t." t? is he trying to give himself a nickname to appeal to black voters? [ light laughter ] come november 8th, vote d trizzy. [ laughter ] or maybe asap donald or my
[ laughter ] [ applause ] trump has also thought to make inroads with latino voters by tweaking his hard line position on immigration. trump is basically trying to have it both ways. in a speech last week he said undocumented immigrants cannot obtain legal status and that anyone who has entered the united states illegally is subject to deportation, but in a bid to appeal to latinos, trump was introduced by rudy giuliani who was wearing a hat that said "make mexico great again also." [ ht which is way too many words for a slogan on a piece of clothing. if it were up to the trump campaign we would have t-shirts that say "i am here and so is stupid, and if you want to where they are, follow this arrow." [ light laughter ] meanwhile, trump's campaign still hasn't answered the question of whether there will be mass deportations. the reason trump's immigration policy sounds so incoherent is that there is no policy. trump's immigration rhetoric isn't about addressing the problem. it's about appealing to people's fear of cultural change.
that, when a trump supporter and founder of a group called latinos for trump went on msnbc and warned what would happen if trump's immigration plans are not implemented. >> my culture is a very dominant culture, and it's imposing and it's causing problems. if you don't do something about it, you are going to have taco trucks every corner. [ light laughter ] >> seth: taco trucks on every corner? you can't threaten people with something they actually want. [ applause ] this -- i mean, this is amic the only thing we love more than tacos are tacos that come to us. [ laughter ] but that's the point. trump's immigration rhetoric isn't really about crime or jobs. after all, immigrants commit fewer crimes than native-born americans, and they don't take jobs away from americans either. trump's tough talk on immigration is really just about reassuring white voters who think they're an endangered species, and ultimately, hillary is banking on the fact that an increasingly diverse electorate won't feel threatened by
after all, without cultural change, most of us would still be dancing like this. [ light laughter ] this has been "a closer look." ?? [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with steven tyler, everybody.

[ cheers ] our good friend fred armisen. i have known fred for years. still never bored to hang out with him. one of the things we always talk about is television. we both love television. my big complaint about television, very hard to watch it all, there are so many great shows. fred claims that's not a problem for him because he watches every episode of every television show that's on tv every night. >> fred: it's true. >> seth: true? >> fred: everything. >> seth: you don't have to say it's true if it's not true. >> fred: i promise you, i wouldn't lie about it. >> seth: sometimes people try to
get caught in a lie. you can admit right now it's not true. >> fred: i'm not one of those people. [ light laughter ] >> seth: all right. that means it's time once again for fred armisen's extremely accurate tv recaps. ?? [ cheers ] all right. so you know how this works. if what you say is true, i'm going to name a tv show, and you're going to tell me what it's about, all right? >> fred: okay. >> seth: okay, the show is "major crimes" on tnt. >> fred: "major crimes" on tnt. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah, "major crimes." >> fred: "major crimes" on tnt. i mean, it's on tnt, yeah. "major cri --" do you know "major crimes?" >> fred: you've seen none of it? >> seth: no. >> fred: nothing? >> seth: no. >> fred: the pilot? >> seth: no. >> fred: it's really good, you guys. it's this comedian, glen stevens. >> seth: what's his name? >> fred: glen stevens. >> seth: okay. [ light laughter ] >> fred: and he's like a writer comedian guy. he's like, very sort of whimsical. you know, a lot of words. and it's just like a day in the life of his, like he just narrates it, and it's him walking around. and the most recent episode he goes to the grocery store, and he is just like talking about everything.
look at all the bread, look at all food." and so he just, like, he thinks about it, and he goes out to the parking lot, and you see him write it all down. just goes out there and writes it down. he goes, "this is going to be a good book." [ light laughter ] and that's it. and it's kind of weird, but it's -- >> seth: now fred, i'm sorry, i'm going to interrupt you. 'cause it does, this sounds great. [ laughter ] "major crimes" sounds like a misleading title for what this show is. >> fred: it's the title of one of his books. >> seth: okay. >> fred: oh, i see what you are thinking. yes, it's one of his books, and that's like, that's what it's about. saying? like, it's him come up with different titles to books. >> seth: the show is him coming up with titles to books? >> fred: and he keeps -- and it keeps -- like, "major crimes" is the only one he can come up with. do you know what i mean? so he's, like, "ah, dammit, it's -- 'major crimes' is the only thing i can think of for this next book." he's so funny. >> seth: how many episodes have they -- >> fred: seven. he is so funny. he's got that subtle comedy where you are just, like, was that a joke? i think it was. it's like nuanced and -- >> seth: that doesn't sound funny at all.
>> seth: okay well, according to "tv guide," "major crimes" is about a female captain that leads the l.a.p.d's major crimes division in this spinoff from "the closer" featuring characters from that series. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] >> fred: i don't know what i was thinking. >> seth: give it up for fred armisen, everybody. >> fred: thanks. [ cheers ] our first guest tonight is a the lead singer of aerosmith, he's won four grammys and been inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame. his first solo album ever, "we're all somebody from somewhere," debuted at number one on billboard's top country albums chart. the album is available now. please welcome to the show steven tyler.

"i know what you are talking about here." [ laughter ] so yeah, you know, i just got to have this cute -- >> seth: that's great. and do you always travel with your dogs? >> yeah. >> seth: okay. >> you know, they're now -- they're called, what is that? >> seth: emotional support? >> psychological emotional support dog. >> seth: do you pull that? do you try to pull that? >> well you know, i come off the stage at madison square. and you know, things aren't like they used to be. i now go back to my room, and a little ping pong, shuffleboard. no, but seriously, they're -- they're -- i love them. >> seth: they're really excited to be here. >> they love me so much. >> seth: especially this guy. >> i know, right? he is right at home here. >> seth: speaking of right at home, you grew up in the bronx? right? >> yeah. [ light laughter ] well, i mean i just spoke to a woman backstage, and i said, "polyclinic hospital right here in -- right -- right here." >> seth: what about it?
>> seth: you just said it to a random woman or --? [ light laughter ] >> no, no, no. i looked at her, and she said -- >> seth: do you just walk down the hallway and tell people where you were born? >> i said i was born in the polyclinic hospital here in manhattan. and she goes, "so was i." >> seth: oh, wow. >> so a magic moment. it started from there, and then it went to two blocks from the apollo, then to the bronx. >> seth: and your father -- this is interesting. your father was a music teacher. >> yeah. >> seth: and was actually the music teacher of our executive producer on the show. isn't that crazy? >> yeah. >> seth: so you must have been around music your whole life. >> yeah, my whole life. my father went to juilliard. and then he taught at cardi spellman where your guy went, and my father taught school. but you know, he brought this steinway piano. because he learned bach, and brahms, and beethoven. the family was that musical, for real real. so they brought the piano up to 5610 netherland avenue, apartment 6g, put it in the corner of a tiny little room. and when i was brought back from the hospital, i was under the piano. >> seth: from polytechnic? >> say what? >> seth: from polytechnic? >> polyclinic. polytechnic. >> seth: polytechnic. >> aerospace -- yes, no.
so, you know, that's one of the things that i like to talk about. i learned that language first, i would like to think. >> seth: music. >> yeah. >> seth: now, this is interesting to me as well. you have new hampshire roots. you spent your summers in new hampshire. and i grew up in new hampshire, and we knew you as a boston band, but i did not grow -- i grew up my whole life. i did not take state pride ownership in you. but new hampshire was a big part of your life. >> state pride ownership. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> i love that. >> seth: you gotya join me, adam sandler, sarah silverman. you gotta be -- >> i love it. enough about me. let's talk about you. what do you t [ light laughter ] >> i'm loving it so much. >> seth: we're big fans. >> love it. >> seth: but i will say growing up in new hampshire, you were not a sound that i would think would come out of there. how did you guys find your sound from a place like that? >> well, i grew up every summer of my life i went up to sunapee. the family came over from italy, they bought us a bunch -- a parcel of land. they were all musicians. and so every summer of my life i went up and mowed the lawns, and
joe perry and his band, at the end of my trying to make it big in 69, after woodstock, um, all my bands broke up. so i went up there and mowed the lawn. >> seth: it's very hard to picture you mowing a lawn. [ light laughter ] >> oh, man. i took care of that -- >> seth: were you really good at it? >> 360 acres i took care of that whole place. >> seth: really? >> oh, yeah. >> seth: did you have a riding mower? >> no. >> seth: i guess 1969, you probably had to push it. >> no, not until the very end. well then they graveleys came along. early on it was push mowers. >> seth: gotcha. >> and it was, you know, big strong mowers, and we had a jeep thul cut the fields down. we had hay rides and all that stuff. so joe perry pulls by in an mg and says, "my band is playing at the barn. do you want to come see?" so i went and saw. they did a song called "rattlesnake shake" by mick fleetwood, and they played it so good i thought, "you know, to hell with those other bands. maybe i can meet with him. we can all move to boston, do a band," and the rest is history. >> seth: the rest is history. and you guys have been doing this so long.
which seems nice for your fans. when you guys do a concert, you are going to hear aerosmith's hits, yes? you're not one of those bands that doesn't play your hits. >> no, because, you know, i used to go to concerts all the time, from early on with the english invasion, and you would hear bands do songs that just wasn't like what you heard on the radio. and to me that sucked. i couldn't stand them changing it up. like "she loves you" was a polka. i wanted hear the beatles sing it the way they did it. >> seth: yeah. >> andi' um, i've always felt like the band should do that. we owe that to our allegiance. the blue army. >> seth: you have -- obviously you have a sound now, people know. you also have a look that is very unique. you're very scarf friendly. >> yeah. >> seth: one of the more scarf friendly performers. has the scarf ever endangered you on stage? because you move around a lot. it seems like a grabable thing for fans. >> endangered scarfage.
>> i have been scarfed a few times in my life. no, this all came from janis joplin. everybody thought, the stones came over and beatles and mick jaggar was my thing. yes, i loved them. baddest boy on the block. but, it was janis joplin. and she had the bangles and beads, and you know, she drank southern comfort on stage, smoked cigarettes, said the f word. i loved her. [ light laughter ] but yeah, you know, the scarves started from me wearing clothes, and we didn't have a lot of money, and -- >> seth: you could only afford scarves? [ light laughter ] >> i would wear my shirts until they fell off and they rotted, and i would hang them on the mic stand. now, do people f around with my mic, with my scarves? oh, yeah, all the time. and you know they'll pull it in the front, and the mic's here, and it will whack me in the face. >> seth: gotcha. >> so, i've always thought about i've had these fantasies, of either tying them up or maybe putting fish hooks in the end. >> seth: oh. [ light laughter ] >> and throwing the scarves out and catching a few floozies from
>> seth: there you go. yeah, that's nice. much easier way to get groupies than having somebody go pick them out for you. >> well, yeah. the tour manager. them -- her and her. just catch them. [ light laughter ] >> seth: so this is a country album. where did your love of country come from? >> new hampshire. >> seth: yeah, new hampshire is a big country place. >> you know, my first job was on a chicken farm. and as i say, there was no neighbors at all around me. my sister had -- thank you, linda -- the everly brothers. that was the first thing i listened to. and their harmonies and so my love of -- if you want to call that country. i think it was pop country. it's just beautiful, melodic -- i'm a freak for melody. i've got to have it. >> seth: this is your first solo album, is it fun to be away from the band? i know they're like family, but is it nice to be on your own? >> you know, i have never done a solo project. i just wanted see what i would get. so i moved down to nashville just to see. you know, it's nothing but fun, you know? >> seth: you enjoyed it?
to get back with the band? >> oh, yeah. we're going back on tour in a month. >> seth: that's great. on a one to ten, how excited are the dogs right now? [ light laughter ] >> they are -- they're right at home. they're used to this. as you can see, they're sleeping. >> seth: i will say, you know, usually they say dogs like -- [ audience aws ] oh my god, they're adorable. they -- it's impressive they haven't picked up your energy at all. that's what i like the most. [ laughter ] >> maybe that's why they're so sedate. >> seth: they're so sedate. i'm so excited to listen to you sing. thank you so much for sticking steven tyler, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] he'll be back later in the show to perform "my worst enemy" off his new album, "we're all somebody from somewhere." the album is available now. we'll be right back with ali larter.

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: our next guest is a talented actress you know from the hit show "heroes." her new series, "pitch" premiers thursday, september 22nd on fox. let's take a look. >> i'm ending this. >> amelia, relax. she's not nolan ryan. she's the number five starter being called up for a spot

the field, it's very like -- you go in awe of it. and to be able to see the players, the uniforms, it's really cool. >> seth: it is very cool. now i'm very old friends with your husband, hayes macarthur -- >> yes. >> seth: and i know that he does not love in your films and your television appearances when you have love scenes. you have a love interest in this show. >> yeah. >> seth: is there, like coming down the pike, do we have any love scenes that hayes needs to know about? >> when i signed onto this heart-warming show -- >> seth: yeah. >> i was like really excited. >> seth: exactly. family show. >> and then, you know, a script came, and i was like, "ooh, okay. how do i approach this?" so i thought, you know, let's just keep it vague, let's not make it a big deal. so i said, "honey, i just want you to know i have like a sex scene tomorrow. it's not a big deal, whatever." he is kind of like, "okay." the next day comes. i do the scene, and i come home, and i'm, like, "it was a little bit more than i thought it was going to be." [ light laughter ] it was a little bit more explicit. he was like, "why didn't you tell me?" and so what i'm telling him now
[ laughter ] >> seth: all right. that's good to know. >> now he knows. it's clear. >> seth: although, i gotta be honest, as a husband, i'd rather watch than not like spend the rest of my life wondering what happened in episode three. [ light laughter ] >> i mean, you know, it's network, so it doesn't get too bad. >> seth: yeah, that's true. you're all right. >> it doesn't get too bad. >> seth: you've had a long career, but this is one -- it's amazing to me, this is the first time people sort of saw you. you were on the cover of "esquire," but not as you. >> right. >> seth: you were playing -- this was a parody issue where you played allegra coleman, and new actress in hollywood, but it was all made up. this was a piece of fiction within "esquire." >> yeah. >> seth: yet -- and people for a long time didn't realize it was a gag, right? >> it's true. it was kind one of those art imitates life imitates art thing. when i did this, i was hired by the photographer, and there was this huge article written where i was, like, dating david schwimmer and i was hanging out with deepak chopra and all this stuff. and i was with william morris, and all of a sudden, like, all these agents started calling. and like, we don't represent her, what, what, what?
and i took those meetings. >> seth: and so you actually as a fake person started your real career. >> yes. and i'm now with william morris. [ laughter ] >> seth: full circle. that's fantastic. >> full circle. >> seth: you got to achieve what i think pretty much anyone in any industry would want to do, which is you got to be in a film with beyonce. >> unbelievable. >> seth: "obsessed" is the film. >> so great, and, like, fight her in it. >> seth: you had a fight scene. a giant fight scene. >> yes. >> seth: and yet, i know from hayes that you had a chance to do something and years later he still thinku >> yes. so i was -- when i shot that, i was shooting "heroes" at the same time. it was, like, 20 hour days. >> seth: very busy schedule, sure. >> i was, like, crushed. and she said, you know, would you like to have dinner tonight? and i just -- i i couldn't do it. i was so tired. to this day he still does not forgive me for not having dinner with bey and jay. he is like, "how could you do this to me? i'm still mad." >> seth: yeah. >> never going to happen again. >> seth: your husband hayes, also known as hay or hay-z -- >> yeah.
blew it. >> yeah, i totally blew it. >> seth: what do you think you even did for dinner that night? do you ever think back to -- >> you know what? i think about that now, why you never miss a wedding, you never miss a dinner with jay and bey. you know, you do it because those kind of things never happen again. >> seth: yeah, exactly. when you think back and go, "you know what though? i had a wonderful salad in my hotel room." >> yeah, exactly. >> seth: it was still a pretty awesome night. >> exactly. >> seth: congrats on the show. i'm so excited. >> thank you. >> seth: it looks great, and it's always so great to see you. >> thank you so much.

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back, everybody. now, if there's one thing that everybody seems to love it's nostalgia. whether it's hollywood, the fashion industry, or video game creators, everyone is trying to capture the magic of the past. well, we here at "late night" thought we'd look at some of the forgotten relics of pop culture in a new segment, "nostalgia corner." ?? [ cheers and applause ] of things we all remember from the past. for example, beanie babies. how many of you guys remember beanie babies? [ cheers and applause ] of course you do because beanie babies were probably the most talked about toy of the 1990s. what no one remembers, however, is the lesser known toy series inspired both by beanie babies and the members of the sheen family. i'm talking, of course, about sheenie babies. they were a series of cuddly stuffed toys designed to look just like members of the sheen family.
you could collect all the sheenie babies. there was the charlie sheenie. you got the martin sheenie, very popular. [ laughter ] the super rare emilio estevez sheenie. and very adorable. unfortunately, the sheenie babies, they were supposed to be collectors' items, but the value ended up significantly going down with age. for example, take a look here at a used charlie sheenie baby. very rough. [ laughter ] moving on, anyone who watched the channel nickelodeon growing up no doubt remembers slime. this is the fun green stuff that fell down on people's head in just about every one of their game shows. now what you guys probably don't remember is nickelodeon's attempt to spin off slime into its very own tv show in the early '90s. the show was called "slime by night" and was part of nickelodeon's more adult late night line-up. it stared the green slime as hard-drinking los angeles homicide detective wilson strong. the show was canceled after just 13 episodes. i can't believe it had 13 episodes.
but it's considered in some circles to be a cult classic. we at "late night" managed dig up footage of the show. check it out. ?? >> dammit, wilson. i've known you for seven years, and i have never seen you this bad. this case is tearing you apart, man. [ siren ] >> where are you, strong, you son of a bitch? you bastard! [ light laughter ] >> seth: i think it holds up pretty good. [ applause ] moving on, a small part of nostalgia is looking back at things that could probably never be made today. things like 1980s oriental barbie. that is a real thing that
perpetuated racial stereotypes. well, this next item certainly falls in that category. now some of you may be familiar with tamagotchis. do you guys remember tamagotchis? [ scattered cheers ] they were handheld digital toys that let kids take care of their own virtual pet. the tamagotchis had many rip-offs, but none more controversial than this one that was released in the late '90s called the homogotchi. [ light laughter ] this was a digital device that let children take care of their very own gay man. now, these things were discontue even heard of 'em, but the kids who had these would often spend hours after school every day feeding and nurturing their gay man. let's take a little -- get in a little closer. so as soon as you power up your homogotchi, your gay man is born. he comes out of the closet. you know what? actually, let's not do this. [ light laughter ] i don't want to do this. this is stupid. [ applause ] up next, how many of you guys remember these things? this is slap bracelet. do you guys remember slap
there you go. wrong way. they seem pretty silly now. i was very good at them. there we go. seems pretty silly now, but they were actually quite popular back in the day. so popular the clothing designers had even developed a slap necklace. you guys probably don't remember these things, but check out this clip from a commercial from 1994. >> new, from the makers of the slap bracelet, it's the slap necklace. neck time you wear your slap bracelet, throw on a slap necklace. [ light laughter ] or two. or three. [ choking ] the slap necklace, on sale now. asbestos and may cause spinal damage. [ light laughter ] >> seth: lastly -- [ applause ] yeah, give it up for the slap necklace. lastly, this piece of nostalgia is actually very special to me personally. some of you probably remember stretch armstrong. do you guys remember this? stretch armstrong? very popular action figure in the '80s and '90s. he looks like a normal action figure, but check this out. you can stretch him out, and it's very cool. and it was always one of my favorite things growing up. well, we have a very special treat today, everyone.
armstrong is based on back when the doll was first made in 1976. let's bring him out. ladies and gentlemen, give it up for the real stretch armstrong. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: wow. mr. armstrong, it is a tremendous honor to have you on our show today. thank you so much for being here. how are you? [ laughter ] and was your flight to new york [ light laughter ] well, mr. armstrong, i just have to say i'm a huge fan of your toy. how does it feel to have played such a big role in pop culture? >> i'm in so much pain, seth. >> seth: the real stretch armstrong, everyone. [ cheers and applause ] that's it for "nostalgia corner." we'll be right back with music from steven tyler. [ cheers and applause ]

the best ice cream bars ever conceived. my goal was to finally get in shape. not to be focusing on my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis. so i made a decision to talk to my dermatologist about humira. humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. tions, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection.
