Eric Philip was reading a recall story on NBC 12’s morning newscast and the anchor wishes he could recall the moment. That’s because he read, “Check your panties,” when he was supposed to say, “Check your pantries.” So what happened?
WWBT sent their Investigative Reporter to check it out and what he found out was shocking. The dreaded typo happened and the r mysteriously was missing. As we know reading and wRiting was not part of the core r’s in school. You didn’t have to learn aRithmetic to know that adds up to one really outRageous moment that makes live TV so special.
The news that will not come as surprise to anyone, but NBC made official last night that Billy Bush is no longer working for them. The anchor hadn’t even been part of Today for two months before he found himself being part of the news. Back in 2005 when he was working on Access Hollywood, he said and did some lewd things with Donald Trump that came back to bite him in the a$$.
People and viewers are so disgusted by what they heard and saw that NBC and Today had no choice but to part ways with him.
And I don’t think anyone blames them nor will they miss him.
The disgraced newsman released this statement about his firing, “I am deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues. I look forward to what lies ahead.” Here’s to his next job podcasting.
BTW I wonder what those conversations sounded like with his daughters? Actually we can all picture how they went…
Terrell Brown got to hold a boa constrictor on WLS’s 11a news to promote Tinley Park Convention Center. Then when the reptile got close to his face, he let out a scream so loud, horror scream queens are envious of him. It was so high that the snake did a dance for him like it was coming out of a straw basket. It was so loud, Eve was wondering where he was when she needed him in the Garden of Eden.
When it comes to me, I would make the same sound if Jon Hamm undressed in front of me. The newsman is afraid of a boa constrictor and I am afraid of a huge trouser snake that is the same size. Same thing right?
I think we can all agree that there is no way in hell that Billy Bush is going to return to Today, so how will the NBC news show fill his sudden vacancy. Looks like they are going to do what Live with Kelly is doing and have rotating guest hosts. After using Al Roker and Carson Daly last week, this week they are starting it off with Harry Connick Jr on Monday and Tuesday. Which is more of a benefit for the singer whose daytime talk show is not catching on with viewers liked they have hoped and this gives him more eyeballs.
When it comes to Today, I don’t get why they don’t just give the very likable Willie Geist the job. He should’ve always had the job in the first place. Whoever thought that Bush was right for them or anyone? Oh well, you live, you learn, you burn.
Gotta love when news anchors around the country think that they are being original and then a late night show shows them that they are not.
Last week, Apple announced that they were getting rid of the jack holes with the iPhone 7 and newsrooms all over the US thought they would write, “Hit the road Jack,” in their scripts. How do we know this? Jimmy Kimmel Live‘ put together a video of several of them doing that and I love how witty they thought they were. They were not, but don’t tell them that or they will tell you to, “Hit the road Jack.”
