Stuff we like

A great morning TV moment courtesy of Eric Deggans of the St. Peteresburg Times who writes:
NBC News anchor Brian Williams once again proves why he's the funniest standup comic not onstage, devouring a plump jelly doughnut during an appearance on a segment of the Today show where every guest was supposed to show up doing a cardiovascular workout.

In one smooth move, he satires the whole silly process of Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford sweating through interviews on elliptical machines, noting, in-between bites, that he really admires "this stuff you're doing."

Watch in awe at a news anchor who can play along with a cheesy TV gimmick and make fun of it -- without offending the hapless participants -- in one fell swoop.

That was funny Eric. But as long as we're on the subject of news anchors doing schtick, let's revisit this classic moment.
