louisiana governor bobby jindal announced that he is supporting mitt romney for president. yep, jindal said he couldn't think of a better way to show his support than waiting until romney was the only guy left.

some tv news, last night was the premiere of the new reality show on lifetime, about single women looking for love on cruise ships. [ laughter ] seriously? that doesn't sound like a reality show. it sounds like a dateline nbc murder investigation, doesn't it? [ laughter ] what started off a single turned into a nightmare. listen to this, a man in maryland was arrested for selling marijuana out of an ice cream truck. you can kind of tell, instead of playing the normal ice cream song, it just blasted a phish bootleg tape from 1996. [ laughter ] "bouncing around the room. do you guys want anything?" [ laughter ] hey, you hear about this? you probably have. [ laughter ] there's talk that the c.w. is coming out with a new show similar to "the hunger games", not to be confused with their other show based on hunger, "america's next top model."

>> yeah. >> jimmy: what was the advice he gave you there, adam levine? you know, he got this job from standing in that same exact position. [ laughter ] adam levine was on our show and he was sitting with the roots and one of the execs from nbc saw adam and i talking and he goes, "would you like to be a judge on "the voice"?" i swear that's how it happened. >> exactly. is that going to happen to me? >> jimmy: no. >> could we just make it nothing. >> jimmy: you've been eliminated from a second show. [ laughter ] >> oh god. >> jimmy: sorry. i would never do that to you. what was the advice? what did adam tell you to do? >> his big advice to me was to stay confident and he had to kind of pound that into my brain because i was like this shocked, scared, little country girl. >> jimmy: yeah. well, you are very confident right now. [ laughter ] you've learned the lesson clearly. >> thank you. thank you. >> jimmy: erin, you were on team cee lo. >> that's right. >> jimmy: you've been kind of -- yeah. we love cee lo. do you think you would have done better had you been with a different coach? >> i don't know. maybe.
i mean, i just think the song choices were all wrong. would you guys agree? >> jimmy: i don't know, i mean, "walk like an egyptian"? >> it was wrong. >> jimmy: i think you would have been better over on adam -- over on team adam. >> you think so? >> jimmy: i think so. >> but did you like "delilah" and like, the first song and the last song. "delilah" and "your song"? >> jimmy: "your song," that i loved. >> okay. >> i thought that fantastic. >> i chose that song. >> jimmy: that's the one. that's the jam right there. >> and that's me. >> jimmy: that's your voice. that is a different distinct voice. >> yeah. >> jimmy: but cee lo said no thanks. >> well, i mean, yeah. he gave me the boot. >> jimmy: oh my god. t it's a very tiny boot. he's a small man.

[cheers and applause ] oh, love the ting tings. tonight's show is good, good, good. you know, anyone who knows me knows me know that i'm a people person. but i'm also a big animal lover
and the one thing i've noticed is that people and animals are a very different in a lot of ways. in fact, they can often be in the same setting and be thinking two totally different things. [ laughter ] and you find that fascinating, right? yeah. what kind of things? let's find out in a segment we call "animal thoughts." ♪ animal, animal animal thoughts ♪ [ applause ] >> jimmy: guys, i'm going to let you in on a little secret. i'm basically a mind reader. i can tell what people and animals are thinking just by looking at the way that they interact with each other. like, for example, take a look at this. here's a nice picture of a young woman embracing her beloved horse. isn't that sweet? and i can tell just by looking at the woman that she's thinking, "i finally found a horse that loves to be hugged." the horse is thinking something very different. the horse is thinking, "i finally found a human with worse hair than me." [ laughter ] and you see that? just two separate totally different thoughts, same setting. [ applause ]
here's another example, here. this is a guy, admiring a tiny insect on his finger. and i can tell that the guy is thinking, "it's a praying mantis." and the mantis is thinking, "i'm not praying, i'm tebowing bitch." [ laughter ] [ applause ] get it right. it's 2012 the guy is a jet's fan. whatever. here's another. i don't know why i'm getting angry. [ laughter ] here's another it's a guy having some trouble walking his dog. the guy's thinking, "my dog is strong." [ laughter ] and the dog is thinking, "almost at the cliff." [ laughter ] [ applause ] come on, thelma. [ applause ] next here we see a guy looking up from his ipad to gaze over at his trusty dog. the guy is thinking, "you're like the son i've never had." and the dog is thinking, "you're like the dad waldo never had." [ laughter ]
he doesn't appreciate the shirt. a quick little burn from his good dog. what's the big deal. let's move on. this is an interesting shot, here. it's a woman and a horse laying on the ground together smiling. she's thinking, "i love my horse." and the horse is thinking, "i love my crest white strips." [ laughter ] he's got a great smile. the miracle is microbeads. here's another one here. it's a woman is cuddling her little doggie. right there, yeah. and the woman's thinking, "you are so cute." and the dog is thinking, "you are so nice?" [ laughter ] [ applause ] "you have a good personality?" "you're funny?" [ laughter ] look at this guy here. here we have an older guy taking an adventurous ride on the backs
of two dolphins just going for it. and he's thinking, "this is incredible." and the dolphins are thinking, "midlife crisis much?" very sarcastic dolphins. brothers, too. [ applause ] this one is a little odd here. the guy giving his dog a sloppy kiss in the middle of a colorful field. the guy's thinking, "give me some sugar, girl." [ laughter ] and the dog is thinking, "this is the weirdest claritin commercial i've ever done." [ laughter ] "tell them me get my agent on the phone." [ applause ] this is gross. look at this guy here. here we see a sport fisherman showing off his big catch. he's thinking, "caught a big one, must be 100 pounds." and the fish is thinking, "um, try 85 pounds. rude." [ laughter ] [ applause ] never guess a fishes' weight. that's just so rude. here's the last one, here. this is a pregnant woman. [ laughter ]
don't write your own. i mean, these are -- talent i have alone. a pregnant woman posing in the backyard with her pug. the woman is thinking, "i've got a bun in my oven." and the pug is thinking, "i've got my bum in your muffin."

i mean, you're, of course, very charitable, as well. but you spend your brain and your -- your money on making new technology or doing something brand new. like you're not jacques cousteau. you're james cameron. i mean, isn't this fun? what a fun ride. >> yeah, but when i was a kid, jacques cousteau was the bomb, you know? even before we said it was the bomb, you know? >> jimmy: yeah, before people said things were "the bomb." >> "the bomb," right?

that? >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: i mean, so, it's just you in there. >> yeah. >> jimmy: nobody else can sit. >> i'm in this part, right here. the rest of it's all batteries and motors. >> jimmy: how tall is the machine, in general? >> like 24 feet. >> jimmy: 24 feet long? >> but it's only about this wide, you know? that wide. >> jimmy: so you -- mean, did you think for one second -- you go, "this is a my coffin"? >> oh, yeah. >> jimmy: "this is what -- i'm going down. i'm gonna die in this submarine." >> yeah. i think you -- i think that crosses your mind for a split second but the second the hatch is closed, for me, it's on. you know, it's just -- the adrenaline is pumping and -- and >> jimmy: and what do you think -- >> joel: it could be your coffin later.

miles of water, pitch black. it gets freezing cold. you land like a spaceship on this lunar, desolate plane that is the most -- the coldest, most remote, distant place on this planet. and the first thing that happens, after i call in and i tell them i'm on the bottom and -- and my depth is my wife calls. [ laughter ] so, gentlemen, let that be a lesson to you. you can go as far you want and your wife will find you. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, your wife will find you. more with james cameron after the break. we'll have to talk about some more.

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hey, everybody. we are back with james cameron whose 3-d reimagining of "titanic" is in theaters right now. congratulations on this. it's a big hit. >> thank you. yeah. >> jimmy: are you happy with the way everything turned out? >> yeah, it's really gorgeous. i mean, we worked hard on it to get it looking that pristine. like we really show it in 3-d. >> jimmy: some movies you can't -- they bring it, they go, it's now in 3-d. and it's like just looking at a view-master. >> like two and half d. >> jimmy: yeah, this is a joke. yeah, yeah, yeah. >> like 2.4-d. >> jimmy: but you don't screw around. you're james cameron. >> no, thank you. that's the shirt. >> jimmy: yeah. i don't screw around. i'm james cameron. yeah, yeah. exactly, yeah. but you don't. >> go deep or go home actually is the shirt. >> jimmy: somebody went deep.
i mean, go deep or go home. this guy did it. [ cheers and applause ] i love it. you don't fool around. "titanic 3-d," the thing i love about this is that you talked to dr. neil degrasse tyson who we've had on. >> yeah. >> jimmy: he's a genius. >> great astronomer. >> jimmy: great astronomer. and he called you out on something. >> somewhat nerdily. >> jimmy: yes, yes. he's a giant geek, this guy. >> he is, he is. >> jimmy: he doesn't care. we can say it. >> he said, you think you're such a big perfectionist when rose is lying on the raft in the freezing of the middle of the north atlantic and she looks up and you cut to the sky. at that time of the year, in 1912, at that latitude and longitude, those would not be the stars. [ laughter ] and i was shocked. [ applause ] >> jimmy: it's about time. i mean, yeah. >> wow. >> jimmy: i saw that. it took me right out of the movie. i go, this is fake! [ laughter ] >> i mean, we only made it to 1.8 billion. think what we could have done. if it wasn't for that star field. >> jimmy: neil, where were you when we needed you. >> you don't get too many second chances in life but this is one.
and this is actually the reason that we're re-releasing the film. so we could correct. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: but you actually did go back and you fixed it and made it -- >> yeah, we fixed it. >> jimmy: that's what i'm saying. this guy doesn't fool around. he goes deep or he goes home! [cheers and applause ] he's james cameron! you went back and you fixed it. so when you see it now it's actually the sky the way it would look in 1912 -- longitude and latitude? come on. i love it, i love it, i love stuff like this. >> we now know a lot more about the titanic wreck and about the sinking than we did then. we got it 98% right. but there are, you know, rivet counters out there that wanted me to change little things that we now know. >> mchale: yeah, i was pissed. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. >> they're lined up outside chanting right now. >> jimmy: they really are. but you went back and so it's all -- 3-d is now, you change what that is. 'cause 3-d used to be, when i grew up, it was a guy taking a pool stick and going -- you know, a guy -- oh. >> a paddle ball.
>> jimmy: the paddle ball. going. bing, bing, bong bong. i'm wearing those rubber glasses. all red and blue. oh, my god, man! [ laughter ] the creature from the black lagoon or whatever. so this stuff more of like -- i feel like i'm immersed. >> right. it's about taking the screen away and making a window and through that window a world and it's basically the way we see the world. i mean, people don't do this all the time. >> jimmy: joel did that to me before he came out. [ laughter ] >> joel. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: there it is. i keep forgetting that before i sleep. [ applause ] recently you closed your investigation of titanic. you said, it closes on national geographic this week. >> yeah. yeah. >> jimmy: you finally put and end, i'm done investigating this. it's now closed in your life. are you sad about this? >> no. you know, i mean, at some point you've got to move on. you know. like 33 dives to the wreck and we surveyed the whole interior of the ship and all that.
but we found out one really interesting thing and when we were doing that show. i had commissioned a study at the u.s. naval academy and for three years they ran computer models of the ship and every time they ran the progressive flooding study, it always tipped over. it always capsizes. like the andrea doria the costa concordia. you know? >> jimmy: yeah. >> in italy. but the real titanic didn't tip over. and the only thing we could figure is that those guys down in the engine room were pumping the water back and forth and keeping it level so they could get all of those people off in those lifeboats. >> jimmy: wow. >> because if it tipped they couldn't do it. on like on whole side the boats wouldn't launch, right? so these guys -- they all died. nobody lived to tell the tale and we figured it out from computer modeling that these guys were heroes. >> jimmy: that is amazing. thinking about what they did there. [ applause ] that's pretty cool. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i want to show everyone a clip from the new "titanic 3-d" that is in theaters right now. check this out. it's beautiful. [ metal groaning ]
[ screaming ] [ crashing ] [ screaming ] [ crashing ] >> jimmy: oh, my goodness. [ cheers and applause ] i'm sorry, i should have said, there's something you wanted to say before we ran that. >> i was going to say, i hope it's not a spoiler. now everybody knows the ship splits in half and sinks. >> jimmy: yeah. sorry. spoiler alert! sorry, everybody. don't miss "titanic 3-d" in theaters right now.
