Don Lemon lives up to his last name on CNN more times than people would like. Well yesterday, he decided to change that up. He did that by forgetting his own last name. Instead of saying Lemon, he said Lizza, Hizzas.
Just when you think The Lemon can’t do anything else to embarrass CNN and himself, he doesn’t even remember his own name. What more can you say because I think that says it all.
For five years Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer were the co-hosts of Today and the two of them would prank each other from time to time. Whenever he appears on her daytime talk show they continue that trend by trashing each others dressing rooms.
This time when he was on the show, he decided to leave his mark all over dressing room and she had a few choice words about it. When she saw his face all over her walls, she said, “OMG, what a jackass” and “what an idiot?” How many times have we’ve said that about him? Well we are using it in a different context than her, but still.
Although how can you hate the news anchor after seeing this photo of him with Today‘s new puppy Wrangler? It is too arfdorable for words!
Today on Today, they had on Dover police officer Master Cpl. Jeff Davis, who became a viral sensation for singing Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off into his dashcam. Carson Daly wanted to know how it came about and he found out that his department did it to give police officers all over the world some positive attention. They succeeded!
Well, you can’t have on the singing policeman and not have him sing; so that is just what they did. Daly joined him for part of it and now we know why he is only hosting The Voice. You know because he doesn’t have one. We all can’t sing, so at least he found a way to still be part of the music industry that he loves so much.
And when it comes to Jeff Davis, how can you not love him? I wouldn’t mind getting pulled over by him. Well, only if he gives me a warning because no one wants a ticket.
WPTV’s Vanessa Misciagna was taping a standup about some goats who devour discarded Christmas trees, and she learned that including them in the shot was a bad idea. Some of the goats were kissing her lips as she tried to talk and some of the other ones were ready for their closeups.
No matter what they did to her, she kept on going with a smile on her face. Which is was probably an easy thing to do because those kids were so amaazing!
WZTV‘s Kelly Rippin thought that covering the boat show would be an easy assignment, but it will be one that she will never forget. That’s because the star of the event peed on her head.
Twiggy the Squirrel, who surfs like a pro, was fixing the Nashville reporter’s hair (and made it look so much better) when she decided to wet it with her own pee. Rippin’s reaction to being peed on is classic, and the fact that none of her co-workers supported her, makes it even better.
Things got even worse for poor Kelly because she had to stay in the urine covered dress and continue reporting from the boat show for the rest of the morning newscast.

Yesterday WLS wanted to let parents know that schools would be closed in Chicago today, and looks like the person who wrote that warning on the screen needs to go back to go school. That’s because they typed that “Chicago Pubic Schools” cancelled their classes for today. Last time I checked, kids go to public school and waxing technicians go to pubic school.
Good Day NY‘s Theresa Priolo thought that the animal segment with Jungle Bob would be boring, and it was anything but. The first animal he brought out was a Chilean Rose Tarantula. The spider climbed up the male anchor’s arm and then it was her time to play with him. What she never expected is that Jungle Bob would eventually put it on her chest and leave it there for the rest of his time on the morning newscast. While she looked calm and collected, you could tell that anchor was about to lose it. No one can blame her because they would do the same thing if they had a huge venomous 8 legged bug that close to their jugular and heart.
Hopefully she got a silk shirt out of it because she deserves something for going where no anchor has gone before.
Dallas and Brad Woodhouse, who are political opposites, were having one their debates on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal call-in show yesterday, when a caller left them shaking their heads down in shame.
Dallas was all happy when someone from his home state called in, until he realized it was his mom, Joy. The two brothers have said that there are a lot of families like theirs, where one kid is a Democrat and the other one is Republican and she had something to say about that. She said, “I disagree that all families are like ours. I don’t know many families that are fighting at Thanksgiving.” She added, “I was very glad that this Thanksgiving was the year you two were supposed to go to your in-laws. And I’m hoping you’ll have something out of your system when you come here for Christmas. I would really like a peaceful Christmas.” She concluded her statement by saying, “I love you both.”
Steve Scully, the host of the show wanted to know what it was like raising those two boys. She told him, “Well, it hasn’t been easy.” And what also won’t be easy, is their family reunion this weekend with their mom. I am sure they are going to have a thing or two to say to her after this call.
If I were C-SPAN, I would give the Woodhouses their own show. Their mom can moderate as the brothers fight it out. I would watch and I hate politics. Would you tune in?
Nina Moini was reporting live from the WCCO newsroom on Sunday about Cyber Monday, when the deals got to be too much for the guy sitting next to her. Pete Bercich was looking at something on the computer when he decided to suddenly lean back. Well, I guess the former Minnesota Viking didn’t know his own strength because the chair feel over backwards as soon as he did it. Thus creating the perfect news photobomb. Something he was going for because he warned his followers on Twitter something was going to happen during the newscast. So was it a photobomb gone wrong or he is bringing slapstick comedy back? Either way, I am so happy someone posted it to Vine so we can watch it on endless loop over and over again!
KMBC’s Nick Bender was doing the weather, when they switched the graphic to the newsteam. That would not have been a problem, had his hand not been on the female anchor’s breast. No word if HR was called over the matter, but if they were it is a sad state of the world that we live in. What? People have complained about a lot less.
