8:09 am
that's the sad thing. >> do you thi he'll wawatch? >> you've got -- well, i'm sure he will, because o.j.'s -- he'll say he won't but he always does. he always says he never reads the rags but he does. i mean curiosity, it's about him even though it's fictional or whatnot, it's still about him so he'll watch, you know. somemehow they'll figure out a way to do it. it's just sad for the kids. that's the main thing. they shouldn't have to go through this all over again. their mother was butchered, you know, and their father is considered a murderer by a lot and they have to relive that for the next two months over and over and over they can't even go to the restaurant without it airing so it's just -- it's a hard thing for them. >> how about that portrayal by cuba gooding jr.? >> well, that's sort of silly. i mean i'm sure he's a really nice guy and all but he's definitely not like o.j. simpson. they never consulted i don't
8:10 am
to explain that that's not o.j. it doesn't even sound like him. i don't even know what's up with the uh stuff. that part made me laugh. i don't get it but he did the best he could, i guess. it's just o.j. simpson has a charisma about him. he's a good-looking guy. he's a ladies man. big guy, you know, ftball player. you know, when h walks into a room, everybody runs to him. the women, i mean, it's just -- they called him bait in college because of his looks. i mean, and cuba gooding jr. is a nice guy but he's not a big guy. he doesn't look like o.j. in any way, shape or form and definitely doesn't sound like him. >> last time we saw o.j. on tape he seemed like a pretty defeated guy. >> well, he is. he's very depressed right now. i mean, he doesn't want to talk to peop. he's become real isolated. institutionalizing himself. every time he tks to somebody it brings back the outside and then he has to
8:11 am
really likes to be left alone. you knowow, when we have friends that go visit him, he'll visit them foror a mine or two then he's got to go. he said i've got to go back in there. we're working on fantasy football things and he actually leaves them there. which is really weird because they drive three days to get there. >> you know, i'm wondering -- >> he's the one ready to believe. >> before we go this movie "concussion" has sparked a lot of debate about degenerative brain disease in fooootball and e doctor who inspired it thinks that he thinks o.j. suffers from it, that disease known as cte. do you think he may be right? >> o.j. has a lot of shall issues, i mean he'll do things that are just whacked out. he'll sit in the corner. he'll talk to himself. he'll answer himself. you know, i've caught him doing that n numerous times. i deal with people who are usually unpromotable, the people that have to be turned around. o.j. was one -- you can't really deal with him because he doesn't understand a lot of things like going i in vegashen he went into that room. he knew better, he called me and
8:12 am
he did it because he doesn't understand things. he's like a child. when weandle him it's like a child. you really got to -- you know, you got to really watch him, watch his manner itches. i think that fx should have actually contacted me just to get some of my video. i got 70 hours of him? us to learn his mannerisms to find out what he's like to be around. >> mr. pardo, thanks very much. >> you could see. >> thank you very much for your time this mornin >> all righ thank you. >> amy. >> all right, george. to you to a big headline for parents this morning about yr kids and all that screen time. experts are now saying, s, it could hurt their very many and one moms trying to tn it all around with her new mie "screenagers." reena ninan is here with her story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i will be the first to admit it, i was in the middle of a wedding reception and pulled out my ipad to keep the kids entertained. how bad can that really be? come on. apparently now there's science showing just what technology is doing to our kids. >> all started with one

the game day spirit, as well. just a few days till the super bowl and we e have a "als & steals" to inspire your super bowl pty. >> yeah, good stuff out therere. >> some good eats in there. plus george clooney and all-star cast of "hail, caesar!" have a new movie and all started as cloononey's praical joke. we'll have more on that coming up. >> a big cast right there bu now we move on to our "10 dates in 10 states." our producer erica scott is in the middle of her digital dating adventure across america fresh off date number two in hawaii getting ready for date number three in l.a. and she's got some advice on the popular dating apps she's using to find a match. okay, guys, we're ready for date number two, doug will be here in a few minutes, he's 25, he loves to surf. he's a hawaiian native so knows what he's doing better than i will. . >> i'm here e to meet ica. >> yeah. >> date number two is in the books. it was a lot of fun, we were
8:24 am
and snorkeling at the aulani resort. tuesday's date was on hinge and wednesday's date was on tinder. hinge, you have a mutual facebook friend whereas tinder is infamous for letting you swipe left or right based on whether you think someone looks good. so you're kind of just judging them based on their looks. you grew up in hawaii. >> yeah, my whole life. >> i thought doug looked like a really cooguy. i think a lot of people assume you won't find meaningful relationships on tinder because unlike having a mutual friend on hinge, you have no idea what these people a are goingo be like in real life. there is n no way ofe knowing after only one date with josh from hinge or doug from tinder but i have to believe both seemed genuine and true to their profiles. >> thank you. >> really nice to meet you. >> one of the reasons the date with doug was so cool was because it was so active. conversation was running smoothly because we had something to do and went paddle boarding in the lagoon and
8:25 am
now we obviously had a date during the day, but according to match 60% of singles think that the evening is a better time for a date and they also think that saturday is the best day of the week for it so it kind of seems like i'm just breaking all the rules. >> erica joins ufrom hawaii right now. breaking the rules but that date looked like some fun, erica, right there. what about the difference betweethese two apps right there, hinge and tinder. is tinder living up to its reputation of being more superficial? >> i think there are a lot of connotations that maybe it's for more casual hookups but i don't think the app should define the date. i think like a lot of things you get out of it what you put into it, so if you want to find someone, you might be able to get a meaning fulful relationship. who knows. i think we all know someone who met someone on tinder. >> might be a little -- >> you just dated i think right there. >> what is this tinder you speak
8:26 am
>> but you got date number three in l.a. today, and you're actually going to stop by the tinder headquarters when you're in town. what do you want to ask the founr? >> so i tually was really wondering, i downloaded tinder plus which is really useful for this project because it lets you have multiple locations which obviously when i'm in new york and i need to look for someone in vegas, that was so helpful. but i have to believe if you're just the average person using it, surely that must be for the more casual hook-u-up, you mht say, so i want to see what he thinks about that. >> i'll bet you do. it will be fascinating to have a chance to talk to him as you go date number three.. so you're living through this with two hats, you're going on the dates and also reporting on it. what are the big things you're learning here? >> so i'm actually one of those people like many i knonow that grew up with divorced parents and i'm at that age in my life where everybody always reminds me it's incredibly important for a a life parer you choose, so i'm curious, is my generation
8:27 am
relationship norm where if you're meeting someone online, you have a better perception of who they are, is it going to change the statistic of one in two marriages ending in divorce, it may not but it's something interesting that we're going to find out. >> yeah, that is interesting to think about. ank you very much, erica. ahead, safe travels to l.a. and al of you at home can follow erica's journey. go behind the scenes on our website and weigh in on #teninten on "gma." >> it's fun to be on her journey with her. we want to give a big thank you to the aulani disney resort and spa out there in hawaii. right now, show, we're going to send it over to michael for some "deals & steals." >> all right, thank you, guys. we are n now on throad to the big game, soso this moing's "deals & steals," tory johnson is here with lots of fun ideas that will score a touchdown with your game day gues. so, welcome, tory. >> we're making any day game day so let's start a little over here and it starts down here, because when i think of game day think of robin roberts in her fuzzy slippers. i picked out puppies for you
