separate speed boats. >> there weren't any long races. they left quite a few souvenirs in the water. it was staged to drum up interest in a new tennis format debuting there meant to keep matches shorter. that's piqued my interest. >> that's the thing. that's what it's meant to do. get you curious. coming up "the skinny" on the way. the globe award winners and the fashion trends on the red carpet and all the attention paid to george clooney and his new bride. and the kiss cams. the latest scenes going viral and who says enough is enough? you're watching "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" weather brought to you by mucinex fast-max. yea, actually i do. it's mucinex fast-max night time and it's got a nasal decongestant. is that really a thing? it sounds made up. i can't sleep when i'm all stuffy. i take offense to that. i'm not going to argue with a talking ball of mucus. i think you're being a little hasty...
