7:02 am
billion. we have a lot of angles of this story to cover. we are going to start with it here in just a couple of minutes. but if you want to know about the katrina and nola, this is the place to do it. >> we are glad you are there for thus morning. thanks. we are also following this morning so much talk about hurricane katrina five years ago. there are a couple of storms that we are following closely this morning. they are in the atlantic. you see danielle there. danielle is just upgraded overnight to a category 4 hurricane. sustained winds of 135 miles per hour. if you expect it to pass east of bermuda, again, this could affect the east coast of the united states potential for rip currents, really large waves at this point. all eyes on that. you can see right behind danielle, it is tropical storm earl. what could earl become? a lot of folks watching that carefully. meteorologists have their eyes trained on it. we will con to follow this for you as well this morning. we do want to get to incredible new video released overnight of those 33 miners in chile. despite being trapped half a
7:03 am
mile underground they actually seem to be doing fairly well. cbs news correspondent seth doan joins us with the later. >> they are receiving their first bits of solid food. teams of doctors, psychologists, and experts are gathering above the mine to help coach them in setting up an exercise regimen and even a daily routine. but since the miners were discovered sunday, exactly what life deep underground looks like has been left up to our imagination until now. even though it is grainy, this is the clearest picture we have seen so far of the miners' lives half a mile underground. shirtless due to the soaring heat and humidity, the 33 trapped miners sing kwlilchile' national anthem. a show of strength and pride and a test many to an unbroken spirit. they take the camera on a tour
7:04 am
of the cavernous mine despite 22 days of confinement, they are surprisingly upbeat. i would like to say hello to my grandchildren and all of my family, this miner says. the camera was sent down to the rescues could check on their hem. it reveals much more. a mini community. with a makeshift pantry. a card game in progress. the men have been told they will be stuck underground past chile's independence day in mid september. but that they should be with their families by christmas. prepared for the long haul, lifesaving supplies, like water, have been lowered from above. along with domino's and other distractions to sustain sanity. >> if you have any kind of distraction that is healthy and will take your mind off of the situation. any sort of relief from the boredom is tremendously important. >> reporter: nasa has been contacted by the chilean health ministry. seeking advice for cope in confined spaces over time.
7:05 am
it takes courage to not leave us abandoned, in miner says. but above ground abandonment is not even a thought. he lost some weight but he can gain it again. this relative of the trapped miner says. clearly planning for a future together. miners may not be the only ones that need to be rescued. according to the lawyers, the company which owns the mine may be at risk for going bankrupt. still the rescue operation will move forward with the state-run mining company drilling the rescue tunnel and covering the nearly $2 million cost. we are turning our turn to wall street where the dow is down 74 points. the real headline here is it finished at 9986. cbs news business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here with the latest. that's a mental barrier for a lot of people. >> it is a psychological barrier
7:06 am
more so than it is a significant number as far as the stock market is concerned. but when we think about what happened this year in the market and all of the turmoil and the back and forth of stocks, just to see them dip below 10,000 again, something that sends a lot of people a little bit nervous and puts people on edge. >> understandably. there was a little bit of good news yesterday. we are getting jobless numbers out. and they didn't go up. >> exactly. jobless claims, people going out, filing for new benefits for insurance. at least things are moving in the right direction. we have seen the last three weeks things moving in the wrong direction. at least we are moving the right way. >> there is one bright spot. we may need a few for boosts to the confidence. it is such a psychological thing to see these number. >> right now consumers are worried about their jobs. they are worried about that kind of security. and they are looking at the markets and saying i don't feel
7:07 am
like this is a positive thing. four out of five investors typical american investors, think the market is going down in next six months. that doesn't equate to positive trends. >> where do the economists see the market trending? >> september for economists and market watchers tends to be one of the worst months for stocks. september could be a difficult month on top of that, a lot of people growth estimates have been recalibrated. they are taking down the growth estimates. so far, however, we haven't heard estimates that say we are bogey to actually slow down to the tune of contraction of the economy. people are still saying there will be growth but less. >> small growth. better than no growth at all. between want to turn our attention back to new orleans where harry smith is this morning. hi, harry. >> erica, thanks so much. hard to believe, as we say, five years have flown by. five-year anniversary of katrina. new orleans was hit so horribly hard. lot of tension was paid here.
7:08 am
what people forget that initially it was mississippi that was hardest hit. this is a beautiful gorgeous sanctuary here. the morning after katrina we stood in front of what was left of the first baptist church in gulfport. the storm surge leveled nearly everything. and katrina roared right through the state. >> ghost town. >> reporter: this used to be one of the best neighborhoods in gulfport. but almost every house here near the water was damaged or destroyed. in five years, very few people have decided to come back. five years ago, we met dr. jason smith. >> all that rubble up there, that's my home. >> reporter: whose beautiful 100-year-old home lay in rubble. >> has ever ever occurred to you go back to rebuild there? >> on the beach, no. first of you a, the neighborhood is gone. secondly, the insurance is prohibitive. >> reporter: while katrina hit
7:09 am
new orleans hard, the real trouble started when the storm passed and the levees failed. americans watched in disbelief. new orleans was drowning and it seemed no one knew how to throw it a lifeline. hours turned into days of chaos. and misery. there were heroes like the coast guard who rescued thousands. and villains, including the head of fema. did you screw this up? >> no. no. >> reporter: much of the city was left uninhabitable. many residents left. more than 100,000 never came back. there are 50,000 empty houses in new orleans. they are either in some state of destruction or have been simply abandoned. sadly, most of this neighborhood looks like this. >> i would like to think that when i comes to government, a
7:10 am
lot more gets said than done. >> reporter: the likelihood new orleans will flood again has been addressed by the army corps of engineers. what's the price tag for all of this concrete and steel and hard work? >> slrs 14 billion. >> reporter: much of the city and ushs are protected by miles of flood walls and this massive surge barrier. >> very robust system. there is nothing like it. anywhere in the united states or anywhere else in the world. >> reporter: five years later there is a spirit here that didn't exist before katrina. the survivors share a kind of grit and determination. >> the big story here is one of resilience. it is one of a deep abiding american spirit that reached back into the depths of people's soul and stood them back up again. that's the real story. this is a home and we intend to be here a long period of time. >> reporter: we are joined in new orleans by louisiana senator mary landrieu.
7:11 am
thank you very much for being here. on a scale of one to ten, how close -- what number value would you give new orleans in terms of its road to recovery? >> we are about a six. we are excited and we have a ways to go. there's extraordinary things going on here. we want to thank everyone for helping us. we are building a brand-new public school system basically from the ground up. because so many of our schools were destroyed and new health care system. as you heard this morning the restaurants and food are back. which is the most important thing. >> yeah. i think that's part of a life blood of what goes on here. what do you think was the hardest thing for people here over the last five years? >> well, there's so many things that were hard. one of the most -- most difficult things was to have faith in the levee system because when those levees broke, it was not just katrina, it was a catastrophic failure of an infrastructure stis testimony that's protected the city for over 300 years. and it failed cat strofcally. it puts the entire region under
7:12 am
anywhere from 6 to 14 feet of water. the gulf coast was a surge but here was just a massive flood. people lost faith that the levees would hold. so we had to invest $14 billion. i have to give credit to the core of engineers. once they got the money, will he them go, built it ahead of time. and then just -- that's been terrific. >> they say that they will sustain 100-year storm. >> we have a long way to go. 100 years isn't going to do. the netherlands protects themselves for a storm every 10,000 years. okay. we are struggling in america to protect our people from storms and surges once every 100. that's why we continue to fight the coastal restoration and levee system. that's battle we are win. >> we were with you yesterday in a neighborhood that is in a state of, we hope, revitalization. there's still other neighborhoods there's such a patchwork of the one house up
7:13 am
here, lower ninth ward, great example. there their entire city blocks that are just completely blinded and empty. can a city survive like that? >> absolutely. now, the lower ninth ward is going to be our most challenging neighb neighborhood. the brad pitt foundation, hud secretary literally jogs through that neighborhood regularly. wore so grateful for sean donovan literally jogs through the lower ninth ward. he knows it well. we are coming up with additional strategies because the poor neighborhoods, lower ninth ward has small businesses and middle class families. very strong sense of community. they didn't have as many resources as some of the other neighborhoods. we have to help them especially. lake view, mid city, broad more, neighborhood that i grew up in, my parents had seven feet of water if their homes. they are coming back strong because our leaders made strong decisions. we decided we weren't going to lose this community. we were going to fight for every neighborhood and that's what we are going to do.
7:14 am
we are going to get it done. >> i think you know that guy. >> i know a little bit about him. >> your brother. all right. senator, thank you so much. appreciate it. let's go back to new york. good morning. this morning an american jailed in north korea is heading home to boston with former president jimmy carter. aijalon mahli gomes was pardoned after he met with mr. carter. government investigators say they found at least one source for the salmonella involved in the worst egg recall in four decades. cbs news correspondent dean reynolds is in chicago this morning with more. dean, good morning. >> good morning, jeff. indeed the fda has detected salmonella bacteria at the two farms in iowa in their chicken feed. the farms say it is not their fault. the two facilities, wright
7:15 am
county egg, hillendale farms under suspicion for weeks and voluntarily recalled more than half a billion eggs. late thursday, wright county eggs said a third party supplied some ingredients for the chicken feed which it shared with hillendale farms. but the government caution it is investigation is not focused only on the feed. >> multiple ways where we need -- find it could be part of the general contamination of the farms. >> reporter: wright county egg owner has a long history of problems at the facilities in several states. back in the '80s a maryland plan he owned was implicated in a salmonella outbreak in which 11 people died. at another in maine, workers were filmed ringing the next of chickens and kicking them into piles on the floor. since may 1, some 1400 people have been sickened after eating eggs produced at the two farms. he has been invited to explain what happened to congress next
7:16 am
month. and though under suspicion those farms are still producing eggs. the fda says they are being sent to pasteurization plants to meet safe for consumption in things like mayonnaise, cookie dough, ice cream. >> dean reynolds in chicago this morning. thank you. head back to new orleans now. dave price has your first check of weather. hey, dave. good morning. >> good morning to you, jeff. as we begin our broadcast this morning, we are talking about hurricanes once again. as we approach the fifth anniversary of katrina here in new orleans. let's go to the maps now and see what's happening all across the atlantic at this point. we are talking about hurricane danielle. what's inbeing this, how quickly it explode flood a category 4 storm. winds currently at 135 miles per hour. forward speed of about 12. we are going to watch this potentially brushes bermuda tomorrow afternoon. tropical storm force winds

surprisingly well. shot six under par yesterday putting him in the tie for the lead. just three days after officially ending his marriage to elin nordegren, tiger woods had one day on the course unlike anything that's been seen since last year. >> exciting to hit the ball like this again. that's something i have been missing all year. >> reporter: the car crash that led to revelations of the multiple affairs happened nine months ago and even after a break from the game, woods skrug struggled. the worst streak of his career. during divorce negotiations he tied for 78th place at the bridge stone invitational. another career low. woods acknowledged his personal life was affecting his play. now it may not be. he had all but one fairway at the barclays thursday and putted for birdie on all but two holes. finishing his round with a tournament lead for the first time since last september's pga championship. joining us this morning from san

7:41 am
hard and here we are at the nine-month mark. he's just closed his divorce. i think it makes sense he's finding his game now. >> finding his game in a mental game. perhaps the most fickle of all games mentally. if you are advising him right now moving forward, both this week and beyond, what would you say? >> well, i just want to make one comment, jeff. even more than his mental game, what makes the greatest athletes great is that more than their physical, mental but really that spirit piece. how tiger always makes that clutch putt. really speaks to the issue of what goes on in his heart. when his heart is wounded, he's more human. and in terms of what would i advise tiger? i think the same thing arnold palmer advised him right after this all went down after thanksgiving, you know, take care of your personal life. get your life in balance and, you know, your talent in golf will come through. >> we mentioned he's obviously done a decent am of inflicting that pain on himself. confidence is a huge part of his
7:42 am
game, as we talked about. in the seconds we have left here, he said yesterday he's still confident he will pass jack nicklaus' 18 major titles. do you think he will do that? >> yeah, i think it is likely he will. assuming he gets his life on course and takes care of his personal life. now, hopefully he learned a lesson. it is sad what happened to tiger and even sadder what happened to his family, of course. but, you know, keeping that personal life is part of becoming a great athlete and having a great career. i think that's really what his career is predicated on. >> michael, thank you very much. >> thank you, jeff. pleasure to be here. >> good to have you. you can watch the barclays golf tournament saturday and sunday right here on cbs. up next, dave price looks at new orleans culture. the food, music, spirit of unique city that combined to bring it back from disaster. disaster. you're watching "the early show" here on cbs.

dave price joins us now. we're in jackson square. things are back to normal in new orleans when talk goes away from the storm and to two very important things -- food and music. >> that's true. but keep in mind, people in new orleans still and forever more will divide their lives into pre-katrina and post-katrina. before this storm, this was a cultural center. filled with all that you could see, all that you could taste, all that you could hear. but in the days, months and years after the storm, there was a question whether all of that would survive. >> reporter: new orleans has always been defined by its music and its food. but it will also forever be identified with the legacy of katrina. and its long struggle back from near destruction. >> it's hard not to think about that storm every day. >> reporter: jeremy davenport
7:47 am
has been playing jazz here for more than two decades. after the hurricane, he left with nothing. >> it was a nightmare. i left with a pair of underwear and a t-shirt and toothbrush. my life as i knew it disappeared. as soon as those levees broke. >> reporter: but he did return to utter devastation. >> i remember -- i remember that feeling of lawlessness. i mean, you could drive 100 miles an hour down the road because there was no one here. >> reporter: new orleans had been dealt a potentially fatal blow. its economic and cultural lifeblood was decimated. residents were gone and tourism followed. the year before katrina, a record-breaking 10.1 million visitors made their way to the city. the year following saw close to a 70% drop. but in the face of loss, sorrow and economic suffocation, they showed their fierce determination.
7:48 am
>> different groups saying, hey, we're going to save our city. >> reporter: scott boswell, one of the top chefs before katrina, the storm made an awakening of spirits. unable to serve creative cuisine in his restaurant, and no customers to pay for it, hamburgers became a sign of life. >> we sold duringers, chips and pickles for 5 bucks. those burgers saved my life, saved my company and saved my dream. >> reporter: a five-year journey to get their heads above water has brought a rebirth in the french quarter. tourism, while not back to pre-katrina levels, has improved. in 2008 7.6 million visitors came to new orleans. the challenges continue and the losses are not forgotten. but a joyful melody can once again be heard in the crescent city. >> you were here the day the
7:49 am
storm hit, broadcasting from the superdome. can you believe the change that's happened in the last five years? >> it's remarkable. let's not forget in this piece we're focusing on the french quarter, focusing on new orleans. just a mile or two, as you very well know, away from here it's a very different story. how that area recovers is just as important to the long-term viability of this state and this region. that remains to be seen still. >> well said. lots more to come from new orleans.

8:06 am
the times picayune this morning, there's an investigation into the police department. did the police have an order to shoot to kill looters. and if, in fact, that order existed, could it have come from anywhere besides the police department. could it come from your office? >> no, no way it came from me. i don't have the reports, to be honest with you. it's a guy fired by the police chief. another guy who tried to get back on and he didn't take him back on. i think it's a did he flekz play. >> when you think back to five years ago, what do you most? >> i remember so much. i remember katrina being so deceptive. she didn't really reveal herself until the day she hit. the convention center, struggling tremendously. >> do you have nights when you are trying to go to sleep at night and you think, i would have, i could have, i should have?
8:07 am
>> you know, that's -- >> any regrets? >> there's always things you could have done better. i think back to the mandatory evacuation, the first one ever. there was an eight-hour window. i probably could have called it earlier. it was at night. i'm not sure how effective it would have been. just the lobbying, the money flowing through the state has really hampered us. i wish it would came direct like it went to norp new york after 9/11. >> some people look at you and see you as a hero. others look at you and they say, he was not the guy we needed at the time when we needed a hero most. >> uh-huh. >> how does that rest on your shoulders? >> i think it's fine. i mean, i was in a situation where regardless of what i did, i was going to be criticized. i think over time, as people look at the facts, look at where this city are, i think it's going to work out. >> in this five-year anniversary, is there a single thing you feel strongest about,
8:08 am
a single thing you feel most proud of? >> i just feel good about the fact of where the city is. there's a couple independent studies of the kaiser family foundation and brookings institute saying we're moving from recovery to transformation. all the empirical data suggests we are recovering. so i feel good about that. >> the city loses more than 100,000 people. do you see those 100,000 -- maybe it's not them, maybe it's not the people who left. maybe it's new people. do you see the population growing again to the point it was prekatrina? >> it's all about housing. as the housing continues to come online -- in 2009, the census had us as the fastest city in america. we grew 8%. that trend will continue as the housing continues to come online. >> and in the end of the day, what do you feel was maybe personally, or as a city or as a country, the most important lesson learned? >> wellers the most important
8:09 am
lesson learned is katrina exposed the soft underbelly of america, poverty, race and class in this country. i think it forced us to deal with that at a level we wouldn't necessarily deal w we're still struggling with it. don't get me wrong. the road home program just got a judge to say it's discriminatory. it's forcing us to deal with issues we normally wouldn't. >> mayor ray nagin, thank you for being with us. >> good to see you. a family that watched a whale kill a trainer at seaworld is now suing the park saying their son was traumatized. we'll speak to them exclusively when we return. you're watching "the early show" on cbs.

8:13 am
10-year-old son, they say, who saw everything that happened that day has been traumatized. before we speak with them exclusively, cbs news correspondent ben tracy that's a look at the details. >> reporter: despite being a killer whale, this was still shocking, the whale tilikum attacked the trainer. >> we actually have a trainer in the water with one of our whales, the whale they are not supposed to be in the water with. >> they took this home video moments before the attack. that's 10-year-old bobby looking on. in a lawsuit filed this week, the family says bobby saw the look of horror and desperation on dawn's face as she was swimming for her life and tilikum violently brought her down to the depth of the pool. the family claims the boy has nightmares, is often angry and doesn't eat. >> doesn't matter he was traumatized, experienced severe emotional discretion.
8:14 am
what the courts look to is whether or not there's a close family relationship between the person that observed the incident and the victim that was actually injured. >> reporter: more than 50 witness statements were collected after the attack. so far this is the only lawsuit. seaworld declined a comment on the specific case. but in a statement, they said, we are in the process of a thorough review of the killer whale program right now. we'll make any changes we feel will improve the safety of our staff and guest. on monday osha cited seaworld for violations, including willful disregard for safety because tilikum had known aggressive tendencies. the whale was involved in two other deaths in the past 20 years. seaworld is appealing the findings and plans to appeal the lawsuit. ben tracy, cbs news, new york. >> joining us exclusively this morning from manchester, new hampshire, are suzanne and her son bobby and their attorney.
8:15 am
good to have you with us. suzanne, you were standing two to three feet away as all this is happening. you say the attack has had a lasting affect on your family, specifically your son bobby. talk to us about what's happened in the time since you witnessed this attack. >> since it happened, he at first -- it was the first week or so was very much shock. he had a hard time eating. he spent a lot of time alone crying a lot, didn't want to talk about things, didn't want to talk about that. you know, angry a lot. nightmares. it was very difficult for the whole family but he took it really hard. >> and then now a few months on, and again we're seeing that video that you shot, how are things a few months on. i want to point out to folks, if you're wondering why we're not talking to bobby, he's not answering because of the lawsuit. that's why suzanne is doing the talking for the family. suzanne, go ahead. how are things today? >> today, you know, it's been
8:16 am
six months ago it happened on tuesday. you know, things don't seem to be getting any better. he's doing a little bit better but then we had nightmares again last week. it just seems to not be going away at all. >> when you look at that video, and you replay this and see it replayed on tv, did you realize at the time what you were seeing? >> well, as soon as he pulled her in, i knew something was wrong. i screamed to the trainer. yeah, basically we kind of stood there in shock, you know. it wasn't real. it wasn't happening. >> just trying to process everything. john, this week you filed a negligence lawsuit against seaworld. what exactly are you hoping for as an outcome here? >> well, the first thing that i want and the connells want is for seaworld to accept responsibility. they don't seem to understand that there are consequences for their actions. it's been six months now.
8:17 am
seaworld has taken no responsibility for anything that happened that day. in fact, everyone who has criticized seaworld has come under their attack. so we can start with just accept responsibility for this event and make sure it doesn't happen again. >> we should point out, as ben mentioned in his piece, we did contact seaworld. they told us they are not commenting on this specific case right now, that they are reviewing the killer whale program. also, when we asked them about this, they brought up another claim, the connells had a different attorney, contacted seaworld on their behalf asking for $5,000 and threatening if not to go to oprah with their story. what do you know about those claims? >> i know the connells, absolutely deny that is true. i also know there's a phantom lawyer out there that's supposed to have said these mysterious
8:18 am
things that can be construed to make them look bad. one of the things we're going to do in this case is we're going to get to the truth. i'm going to find out from seaworld, who this person is, if, in fact, he exists. if he exists, did he do what they are accusing the connells of doing. >> just to be clear, mr. overchuck, in this suit you want to hear from seaworld admittance, not necessarily a financial payout here. >> well, the only way that a corporation can say i'm sorry is with the dollars that they earn every day. >> we will continue to follow this. we appreciate you being with us this morning. suzanne, bobby, john overchuck. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. earn a free night! two separate stays at comfort inn or any of these choice hotels can earn you a free night -- only when you book at

without band. >> i don't want to just play a trumpet. i want to try to play every instrument i can. >> i can't repay them for what they have done for my kids. i was really scared there for a minute. it's all good now. >> reporter: all good? >> it's all good. ♪ >> reporter: it is all good. johnny and jonathan and the roots of music band owe a special thanks, rather, to a documentary still in production, harry, called "the whole gritty city." their story is being told. i want to send out a special thanks to them for telling the story. we couldn't have told it without them. >> the other part of this whole puzzle here is when you go neighborhood by neighborhood. this is not the only group like this. this is not the only place where people are coming together in a way. they may not have come together had it not been for this catastrophe.
8:38 am
>> you're absolutely right. folks like derrick have stood up and said, hey, i'm going to take responsibility, because this is my community. he is certainly a hero. >> wow, that is a fine-looking group. >> you see the 3-year-old? that's derrick's nephew. and he can play a mean drum. >> what's his name? >> what is his name? i don't know. terrence. >> terrence, turn around and say hi to everybody. thanks, everybody. thank you very, very much. >> reporter: thank you, harry. >> we really appreciate it. back to new york. here is erica. >> such a great story. thanks to michelle as well. the prime time emmy awards aired this sunday night. we have two questions we would like to answer. who should win and, of course, who will win. here with his answers dalton ross, assistant editor at "entertainment weekly" magazine who brings us good predictions. >> good to be here. >> hard to believe it's the end
8:39 am
of the summer and we're hitting the emmies. >> already. i know. >> it begins. we must kick it off. outstanding actor in a comedy. we'll put them on the screen. the nominees. who were you thinking in this category should win? >> well, you know, "big bang theory" was snugged. they were ute set about that. what i say to you, if you're upset, vote for jim parsons, "the big bang theory." he's the breakout character. he's hilarious a lot of people thought he would win last year. it didn't happen. this would be his time. >> it could be his time. it may not be. is it going to be alec baldwin. >> again. he's still the front-runner. >> for "30 rock." he's hysterical. he can arch an eyebrow and i'm laughing. he's front-runner with parsons the dark house. >> best actress comedy. this is a tough category. >> a lot of great nominees. i'm going to give it to eddie
8:40 am
falco. i think she should win and will win. if you look at what she did on t"the sopranos," now to do this 180 with a dark comedic role, it's amazing. emmy lovers love to see that range. >> she's phenomenal. that show is amazing, it has a really dry, dark humor at some points. she's phenomenal in that role. >> it's not a straight comedy. it's very dark in points. people really respect the range. >> we've got that out of the way. why don't we tie this up, outstanding comedy show. a lot of good ones in the running but "modern family" getting a lot of attention. >> "30 rock" won the last two years but i don't think, modern family and "glee." i'm going to give the nod to "modern family" the "glee"
8:41 am
people are passionate. but broader appeal, amazing sharp writing. >> if it were a musical comedy -- >> it would be all about "glee." >> best actor in a drama, looking at this closely, bryan cranston. >> we talk about the range of eddie falco. he was a goof ball and he's won twice in a row. i think he deserves to win and will win again. the guys amazes me every episode he can play this dark character with depth and emotion. voters responded to them and i think they will this year. >> best actress. a lot of people are pulling for a certain someone in this category. >> someone named juliet margulies? i think she's de los a lock. she's a big name from er.
8:42 am
"the good wife" it really had a lot of things going for it. she is obviously the centerpiece. i think it's going to win. >> it has a great buzz. i have more people say to me how much they love this show. whether or not that translates into an emmy the buzz for people watching it. >> it does. someone for everyone. you want a quick show that wraps up in an hour, you get it, serialized elements, it has that too. >> overall drama, best drama, who do you think should/will win. >> we talked about how great "the good wife" is but i don't think it will win this category. should win, the best show on television, we talk about the writing, acting, cinematography. it's like great art. that said, looking at madmen. voters love it. sleek, sexy, all those things they enjoy. it's got the momentum, will probably pull it out again. >> interesting. finally, so much attention on
8:43 am
the late night category. i remember when the nominations were released, the collective gasp as we saw them. so who do you think could take this home? there's really stiff competition here? >> forget about "breaking bad" and madmen, obviously you have "the tonight show" with conan o'brien, not jay leno. he submitted himself. it got nominated. he could win on nbc for a show he got fired from. obviously he's got a lot of fans that didn't like the way he was treated. the question is will they vote with their head or the heart. the head says jon stewart. he's won every year since the stone ages. people with their heart might say, i don't like the way he was treated, i'm going to give it to conan. >> too close to call? >> it's pretty close. stewart is the incumbent but conan -- we want to see conan win to see what's going to happen. delicious. >> me, too. we'll be watching. great to have you with us. >> thanks. >> we want to return to harry in

crabbers out crabbing, clean up oyster bed in time to bring the harvest into new orleans. we need it, the country needs it. coastal communities have helped to feed our country for three centuries now. it's a beautiful thing. i'm so glad to see we're making huge headway. >> you know what, with six businesses you're so heavily invested in, much more so than financially, this is about your passion and life's work, how do you feel about how this city is doing vis-a-vis on this five year anniversary. >> i tell you. i've never taken the anniversary very serious because it's something so somber. so many people went through so much. to see the city now, it's rejuvenated, it's alive. i think the resilience of the people has really stepped up. we've shown the country, we've shown the world what we're made of. it's a beautiful thing. we live life today produced to be new orleansians.
8:48 am
>> this is just about done. >> here we go. you've got to give this a shot. i'll work on that. that's a little bit of the crab meat, i've added a few herbs, chopped chives, a little dill and fresh greens. it's so simple. the crab meat does it all. >> you are killing me. >> this is my favorite thing to do. you've heard of cheese grits. take creole cream cheese, add it to the grits along with local cheddar. roasted jalapeno pepper. >> applause for adding cheese to the grits. >> oh, man, jalapenos. >> making that just for you, michelle. >> look at these shrimp, look how beautiful that is now. >> literally takes minutes, we'll let that cook five minutes longer. we'll take some of these right now. lord have mercy that's looking good. >> oh, my goodness.
