tonight we talk to the pilot who tracked him down. and the scheduling glitch that made a lot of airline pilots happy but also left thousands of full flights around christmas with no one to fly them. he's been a face of the nbc network, a presence in your homes for more than two decades. tonight we're still waiting to hear from matt lauer about allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. we've learned a lot about this story since finding out from lauer's co-anchors this morning that he'd been fired from the "today" show after a colleague came forward about incidents dating back to the 2014 olympics. we know nbc has received at least two new complaints about him since then. and a new published report out this evening alleges a pattern of sexual misconduct by lauer with female co-workers. the "variety" magazine report details an incident where he le

11:03 pm
co-host. natalie morales was emotional tonight when she addressed the news on "access hollywood." >> well, i'm brokenhearted for everyone involved. obviously the "today" show's been my family for 16 years now. it's difficult on everyone right now. and i know, i've dealt with my share of rumors in the past that were hurtful to my family and to me. i think they diminished my work. i addressed those head on in the past. that is not the story. the story is about the courage of a colleague coming forward. it was very brave of her. it's no doubt a very painful decision. i think it's been painful for everyone involved. >> matt lauer's firing may be the news of the day, but it won't be addressed on tonight's late-night program. seth meyers tweeting that "due to the christmas tree lighting" his show was taped yesterday. and if you're wondering why any of today's news is conspicuously absent this evening, now you know. no word from jimmy fallon about "the tonight show." on to other news now.

11:05 pm
certain spots so they can look directly down on the individual. >> video from the infrared camera shows prince william county police including canines closing in to make the arrest. the suspect surrendered without resisting. >> our practice is to stay overhead until the subject is in custody just for officer safety reasons. so if anything does happen we can call out and have more help come. >> reporter: that suspect, 17 years old, has been charged with robbery. in fairfax county jackie bensen, news 4. an 18-year-old died in an early morning crash in montgomery county today. yonatan tedros of silver spring had just graduated from wheaten high school earlier this year. this morning his car slammed into several others at connecticut avenue and dean road in wheaten. the crash injured four other people. they're all expected to be okay. it's still unclear what caused this crash. parents and staff of d.c. public schools are stunned after learning about a grades scandal at one district high school. an investigation by npr and

11:08 pm
>> as an incentive the airline is offering pilots who pick up extra flights 150% of their hourly pay. they also plan to use reserve pilots. one thing airlines haven't had to worry about, at least so far this holiday season, is weather delays. amelia, can we keep the sunny weather going for tomorrow? >> yeah, we can doreen. and actually, as we close out november and head into december, at least the first week of december for the most part is looking pretty quiet. i'm going to have more on that coming up at 11:18 because something interesting is at the end of the ten-day forecast. but first let's get you out the door tomorrow morning on your thursday. you want the jacket. you want the sunglasses. it's going to be a chilly start with 41 degrees in washington at 6:00 a.m. you can see the suburbs. you're all starting off in the 30s. by 8:00 a.m. we start to warm up a little bit, and then by 10:00 a.m. we're all in the mid to upper 40s. at that point d.c. already near 50 degrees. our high today 70. we're not going on anywhere near that om
11:09 pm
i'll have more on what you can expect tomorrow, doreen, and of course what's at the end of the ten-day forecast coming up in a few minutes. >> not sure i want to know. thank you, amelia. right now the senate is one step closer to passing a republican effort to overhaul our country's tax system for the first time in three decades. this evening the senate voted along party lines to formally launch 20 hours of debate before a final up or down vote. with no democratic support, republicans can only afford to lose two votes. the house already passed its own tax proposal. meanwhile, u.n. ambassador nikki haley is calling on all countries to cut diplomatic ties with north korea after its latest missile launch. at an emergency security council meeting haley also said the united states does not want war, but she says if it comes to that the north korean regime would be "utterly destroyed." and president trump reacted tonight over what many

11:14 pm
another national tv personality is getting caught up in the story about the firing of "today" show co-host matt lauer. fox news contributor geraldo rivera sent out a series of tweets tonight that appeared to defend lauer and attempt to distinguish between harassment and what rivera called courtship. in one tweet rivera said, "sex harassment allegations should require one, made in a timely fashion, say within five years. two, some contemporaneous corroboration like witnesses. electronic or written communications. he went on to say, "with settlements in multimillions slight chance exists some victims are motivated by more than justice." fox news is pushing back tonight saying geraldo's tweets do not reflect the views of fox news or its management. with the we were troubled by his comments and are addressing them with him." tonight a big honor for a young m

i'm shomari stone, news 4. >> thisser's "forbes" list includes another familiar face from our area, braden holtby of the washington capitals. tonight was the annual norwegian christmas tree lighting ceremony at union station. the tree is a gift to the people of washington and a symbol of the friendship between the united states and norway. it symbolizes norway's gratitude for help received during and after world war ii. it's been on display every year since 1997. pretty. and be prepared for a tricky commute home tomorrow night if you have to go through the city during the christmas tree lighting downtown, which always causes a lot of traffic. this year the tree on the ellipse is more than 30 feet tall and will be covered in more than 75,000 lights. there are also 56 other trees around it, one for each state and territory. the beach boys and wynonna jud with the u.s. navy band along
11:18 pm
with hosts kathie lee gifford and dean cain. and our own doug kammerer will be putting on a performance too. he'll be live for the lighting here on news 4 at 4:00, 5:00 and 6:00. the beach boys can wear their hawaiian shirts if it's going to be anything like today was, amelia. >> yeah. with a high of 70 degrees i think that would be a great idea. the good news is tomorrow will feel a little bit more like the holidays out there. not going to be frigid but we'll have high temperatures in the upper 50s. the high tomorrow around 57. if you're heading down there to catch the tree lighting at 4:00, that's actually when we'll be at 57 degrees. and a few clouds out there. as the sun sets, though, we'll cool quickly just like we have been these last few nights. do want to keep that in mind. you might be heading down there, it's not feeling that bad. but if you're just standing there certainly going to feel the chill. by 6:00 p.m. eyre at 52. 8:00 right around 50 degrees, cloudy skies. after that maybe a few light showers impacting on the drive home. but for most of us really not worried about rain. as we loow
11:19 pm
work week. but it is going to be cooler, not just tomorrow but temperatures continue to tumble on friday. that's your first weather headline. as we look to the weekend, it's nice, it's dry. we'll have highs in the 50s. normal for this time of year. no 70s on the ten-day forecast. and i'm watching the end of next week. what's on your calendar on december 8th and 9th? there's rain potentially in the forecast. maybe, maybe a little bit of snow mixing in. a system we're keeping a close eye on. snow is not a guarantee but it's something we're looking at right now. currently, though, our temperatures coming in in the 30s and 40s. 32 in frederick to 44 degrees in washington and just a few clouds out there overnight tonight. and a mix of clouds and sun throughout your thursday. so we start off chilly, around 40 degrees at 7:00 a.m., and the suburbs will be in the 30s. and not as warm overall. by lunchtime not that bad. 52. 10 to 15 degrees cooler than we were today with a high of 57 here in washington and tomorrow evening 7:00 p.m. at that point it's dry. it's really as we get
11:20 pm
chance of some rain moves on into the forecast. but at the bus stop it's jacket weather for the kids. thankfully, though, it's not frigid out there. lunch outside not as mild as today. and if you're getting your christmas tree tomorrow evening after work it won't be too cold. and den, we'll keep it dry during the evening hours. on friday there's the chance for a shower before about 8:00, 9:00 a.m. but after that the the sunshine really returns quickly. ultimately we're sunny throughout the day, breezy and cooler with a high temperature of 53 degrees. and then as we look to your storm team 4 four-day forecast on saturday a high of 52. saturday morning i'm so excited. we have the girls on the run up in frederick with their 355k. as they're wrapping up we're in the low 40s. not much more you can ask for for early december. sunday looking like a great day to hang the holiday lights, get the tree, whatever you need to do outdoors, with high temperatures in the mid 50s. and then as you look all the way
11:21 pm
forecast, friday and saturday, maybe you have a holiday party, maybe you have family coming in to town. we're watching a storm, some rain right now, and if it stays on its current track can't rule out a little snow. >> oh, my. >> the first time we're really talking about that. >> that could be exciting. if it happens. thanks-a meelia. the wizards in action tonight and the redskins getting ready for a must-win game in dallas. carol's up next. but first here's jimmy fallon. >> hey, guys. john boyega is my guest tonight. plus we have kevin nean, kid lo

xfinity sports desk. starting with the wizards. the john wall-less wizards. how'd it go? >> back to back, as you know, because we were starting with the wizards last night. didn't go as wells last night. >> bummer. >> i know. it's a bummer. wizards tried to redefine how to make a comeback tonight in philly, down 24 points in the fourth quarter. but they played hack-a-ben. fouling 76ers star ben simmons every chance they could get. and it almost works. bradley beal and the wizards all business in the steve brotherly love. except early first quarter wiz down four. ben simmons getting to work, gets it back, drives with contact and one. game-high 31 points for simmons. he was at the line a lot. final seconds of the half, joel embiid comes up with a big block. simmons grabs it, and they're on the run. simmons backs embiid and he throws it down. 25 points, 14 boards for that guy. sixers up 20. ar
11:26 pm
though. in the fourth they're down seven here. pass over to bradley beal. led the game with a facial contusion. knocks down the three here. 21 points for beal. wizards within four. then later in the quarter kelly oubre jr. oubre driving, spinning. can't get it to go. but he gets his own rebound and then he does. team-high 22 off the bench for oubre. wizards get within three. they fall 118-113. the maryland terrapin women narrowly avoiding an upset at the hands of their neighbor. virginia led by two late. the terps' kayla charles scored three points in the final 40 seconds. maryland escapes. 60-59 the final. so many keys to the redskins and cowboys game tomorrow night, but head coach jay gruden says it best. he said most important they just can't shoot themselves in the foot. dumb penalties and mismanaging the clock and even a blocked field goal, that has spelled doom for them. desperate different-looking teams this time around but still the same old rivalry when they
11:27 pm
just as much as we hate them. i'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual. >> in history i'm sure this is one of the biggest rivals there, next to steelers and ravens or certain basketball teams, stuff like that. but this is one of the biggest rivals out there. >> both us and dallas, you know, every game counts for us right now. we're in the same boat. we're playing for our wild card, playing to get in. and they're eager just as us. they've lost the last two games at home. we've got to go out there and do what we do best and pay attention to details and execute. finally, a cy young and a young one. all in one month. max scherzer's little baby. he announced it today. the arrival of baby brooklyn. 7 pounds 4 ounces. mom erica and the baby are healthy and happy, he said, as he writes on twitter. not sure the eye color yet, but dad is freaking out. >> baby brooklyn is a little girl. >> little girl. >> okay. >> can't a

11:32 pm
