i want to see him. >> his name is clete blakeman. look at his arms. look. he's like a halo is around him. of course i believe what you say. of course it was incomplete. of course it was. >> just look at him. >> look at him. everyone loved him on the internet. everyone was all about him. he's a 51-year-old league official from omaha. he's work for the nfl since 2008. his twitter account says he's a personal injury attorney? >> now i'm interested. >> married with children. aah. >> be happy for him. >> well, goody for you. >> nebraska huskers tweeted out he was actually a backup quarterback for their '80s team. so he knows the game. so there is a lot of controversy
did you have a favorite of the commercials or did you think one fell flat? >> puppy monkey baby is the stuff of nightmares. >> that was scary. >> but you knew it was mountain dew. >> you don't do that selling a minivan. >> it looked like a tim burton movie. weird things in a tim burton movie. >> a little weird, but good. >> yeah, the sonogram one. let's take a look. >> okay, hodie. >> and there is your beautiful baby. any day now. >> really, you're eating doritos? he's eating doritos on my ultrasound. see what i have to deal with?

hi, ladies. >> hi. can you believe this has caused such a firestorm? >> i cannot. >> this is your big day, baby. >> so one of the things you write about is the toilet seat covers. you see those in the airports and things. should you or should you not use? >> you absolutely do not need to use these. if it makes you feel better, go for it. but in reality, you won't pick up or pass germs through the toilet. >> dr. azar, what's the verdict? >> i totally agree. couple things we were talking about. urine on the seat, it's sterile. you won't get anything. >> but if it's somebody else's -- >> exactly. but here's the thing. you're sitting on the toilet, you have a skin. your skin is your best barrier against infection. >> but i thought we weren't supposed to sit. >> i sit. >> we're supposed to hover. >> if you want a thigh workout. >> nobody hovers that long. they say they do, but it's hard work. >> you got to think about how
touching your own face. >> unless somebody sneezes on the toilet seat, no need for that. >> should you wash your hands after using the restroom. >> i shouldn't have to tell you this, but the answer is, of course, you have to wash your bathroom. but i found 10% of people skip bathroom. >> no matter what is going on in the stall? >> 30% of us skip the soap and enough. >> but it's two minutes or something. >> it's as long as it takes to sing happy birthday two times. washing with soap and water and always remember to go under the nails, too. >> i do. especially between patients, i do. >> what about hand sanitizer if you're in a pinch. is that something that you think is a good thing? >> if you're in a pinch and you don't have soap and water, it's your next best bet. but soap and water is always --
>> you want to look for one that contains at least 60% alcohol. >> what i've been saying. >> not an antibacterial. there is controversy about a substance which has been studied by the fda for a number of years. they don't have enough evidence yet to say whether or not it's dangerous for humans, but animal studies suggest there could be issues. >> so look for alcohol? >> exactly. >> because the skin is porous? >> no, your skin will not absorb anything, but the idea is that perhaps it could breed antibiotic resistance. ruining the natural flora that are on the skin. >> let's go to the dentist. they say should you go twice a year. i thought it was just once a year. >> well, they say twice a year is outdated phenomenon. in reality, it's a lot like the rest of your health where it really depends on your own personal risk factors. something worth talking to your dentist about. >> what if you don't have teeth? still necessary to go to the dentist? >> yes. gum health.
>> i don't know if that's true, but i think it is. >> and the other thing you want to think about, other groups need to go more frequently. smokers, people with diabetes, people with shog reins syndrome, and dry mouth, and pregnant women. every three months they want you to go. >> if you have a yoga mat or even gym equipment, do you need to sanitize it? >> i thought they were doing it because they were sweating, but you should be wiping it down no matter what, because yoga mats, unlike your toilet seat are a perfect home for a lot of germs. and the only thing else, another couple tips are also if you have any open wounds or any cut, cover them with a band-aid. that's how organisms can get in. and another tip that i found really helpful, don't use the same towel that you wiped down a sweaty piece of equipment and then put that on your face. because that is your portal of entry. >> why would you? >> exactly.
the water filters. do you really need to change those out? >> you probably don't need -- you do need to change them. you don't need to necessarily filter your water because it's been treatsed in the u.s. >> unless you're in flint. >> so what the epa says is about 91% of households have community water which is supposed to meet but that's 91%. so certainly people who get water from their own well or something like that, it's their responsibility. but you can look to your local board. >> and sunscreen we know all the time. thanks, guys. >> thank you. >> if you liked girls, train wreck or knocked up, then you'll want to check out the new series love. >> we'll have fun with the stars coming up. i take pictures of sunrises. it's my job and it's also my passion. but with my back pain i couldn't sleep... so i couldn't get up in time. then i found aleve pm.
the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. and now... i'm back. aleve pm fora better am. recently we've noticed some ads created by these two birds, inviting you to stay away from the streak free shine of windex. well dear windex users these ads are false. sfx: squeaks from window cleaning clean glass is better than dirty glass. don't stand for dirty. use windex. let's get these dayquil liquid gels and go. but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. this one is max strength and fights mucus. mucinex fast max. the only cold and flu liquid gel that's max-strength and fights mucus.
we have a nice hearty crowd out there. >> it's blowing snow. they have umbrellas and they're on tv. >> they're in the mood for love. >> yes, they are. intimacy and commitment, sounds like a dream relationship. >> for one couple, it can be a hilarious nightmare. gillian jacobs and paul rust star in the new netflix series "love." >> both coming off breakups and have given up on the idea of love. so take a look. >> i just keep believing that a relationship evolves and gets better and like why do i believe that? where do these lies come from? it's like, oh, i know, songs and books and movies. pleasantville? >> whoa, yeah.
>> yeah, you can tell who wrote this because he got all the lines. hi, kids. >> welcome. >> thanks for having us. >> how fun are you two. that is a great scene, though. you guys seem like you're friends before this taping. do you know one another? >> no. i was a fan before. i knew of her from community and thought she was hilarious. very talented. >> and hot. let's be honest. >> no. yeah, okay, okay. >> and so how did you get a crack at this? >> well, paul had been working with judd apatow on the new peewee herman movie that's coming out this month. >> thanks for that. happy to help. about the idea for the show. touch. >> yes. course. so you wrote it, all of it, or did you write it -- >> i co-wrote it with judd and my wife.
gillian was hot. [ laughter ] >> is there some ad lib happening? because it feels like that's happening a little. >> yeah. >> in true judd apatow style, we did a lot of improv on set, but they also wrote some nice scripts. so it was a wonderful starting point and the freedom to say whatever came along. and you get to play a slut. how much fun is that. so much better than rebecca at sunny brook farms. >> that was my second choice. >> so it you have to do -- did you have to do research for her? >> you know, we all have a past. so i thought about earlier years of my life, friends. you can poll a lot of people, there are a lot of great stories out there. but it's fun to play someone who is slitly less inhibited. i'm pretty tightly wound. >> describe your character.
unlike me. a nerd. >> so it's a stretch? >> doing some real daniel day lewis method acting here. no, i play a character named gus and he's a people pleaser guy and he's a tutor for a young student. >> and you meet her and you're trying to help pay for her stuff in the store and -- >> that's right. >> so love just finds the two of you? >> hopefully. >> yeah, it's like ten episodes and a slow exploration of two people getting together. >> making a lot of mistakes. >> like life. sounds adorable. thanks for coming to see us. "love" premieres february 19 on netflix. >> and apparently peewee herman right after that. >> five women made a pledge to get heart healthy and lose 240 pounds combined. >> we'll reveal how they did it
more savings on car insurance? yeah bro-fessor, and more. like renters insurance. more ways to save. nice, bro-tato chip. that's not all, bro-tein shake. geico has motorcycle and rv insurance, too. oh, that's a lot more. oh yeah, i'm all about more, teddy brosevelt. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. seems like we've hit a road block. that reminds me... anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea... ...gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against occasional digestive issues. with three types of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'. this is mineral build up it collects leaving gross germ-ridden stains. clorox toilet bowl cleaner with bleach is no match for that. but lysol power toilet bowl cleaner eliminates mineral build-up effortlessly.
february is all about heart health. tomorrow night i'm hosting the 13th annual women's day red dress awards. doctors and researchers and advocates to who are making a difference in the fight against heart disease. >> the event will also honor five women who have been part of a live longer and stronger challenge. since last spring, they have worked with joy bauer to lose weight. and lower their risk of heart disease. >> and we're about to show off their hard work. >> this whole thing was put together from women's day. i have a column and every year we two a call-out around the country and recruit women who have had heart disease or are in the midst of heart disease or a family history, and we literally turn their lives around. so i'm so excited. we'll introduce you to all of them. so first up we have our cheer leading queen. this is nicole. 42 from georgia. she's a busy mom, two beautiful daughters. and the reason that she has her pom-poms is she coaches the
