There’s nothing that I enjoy more than watching Kathie Lee and Hoda on The Today Show each morning. Nothing they do makes sense and everything they say makes me laugh. I don’t know if any other morning show in the history of morning has ever made me say “wtf is going one right now!?” more than The Today Show’s fourth hour. That’s why I got so excited when I heard that Ellen DeGeneres and Matt Lauer would be re-enacting an actual scene from the show on The Ellen Show. While Matt Lauer doesn’t really do it for me in any of the ways that people can do it for you, Ellen most certainly does. In at least seven of the ways.
For those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to watch Kathie Lee and Hoda, let me explain what happens when they’re on TV — nonsense, absolute nonsense. I don’t know if they’ve ever completed one coherant conversation. Or gotten through the one-hour MORNING show without drinking. It’s amazing to me that they have a show. But also so duh, because I get sucked in every single day. Mostly because it’s like seeing !?!?!?! come to life. Really guys, I can’t overstate how ridiculous it is. However to prove my point even more I’ll say that those SNL sketches that Kristen Wiig and Nasim Pedrad used to do back in the day are 100% accurate. If not a little underdone.
So sit back, relax and prepare to enjoy hearing Matt Lauer and Ellen read from an actual Today Show script. And then, if you please, picture Kathie Lee and Hoda drunkenly confronting Matt on The Today Show tomorrow.
