Well, they probably  have to get up around 3 am, so that's 6 hours awake.

Absolutely not. No.

There are two days per year it's socially acceptable to get hammered by noon: St. Patrick's Day and August 9th.

I would pay to see both sets of girls loose. But strictly above the equator. Just clang them together.

Kathie Lee is falling more and more into the uncanny valley. I can't put my finger on it but something about her looks is vaguely disturbing
 
2013-01-09 02:38:19 PM  
Or just watch The Soup. Yes, its gone downhill since Joel started doing other things. Still funny and they pointed this out years ago.

I don't catch them often because of my work schedule. I used to despise the show and nag my wife about spending time watching them. But they've grown on me.

I would certainly do things to Hoda that many people would find inappropriate and/or sinful. But the most tortured aspect of the relationship is with Kathy Lee. She and I agree on very little regarding politics or social values. And her sometimes obvious religous asperations seem to conflict with her point of view on other issues. But she's not pretending to be a template for perfection or enlightenment. She doesn't ask for donations to continue her ministry, I've not seen her place the responsibilities for natural or man made disasters on our many sins against Gawd as a culture.

She also doesn't claim to be a journalist, then cut from a piece about female self esteem and body image issues to a piece on the season's hottest new bikinis (watch the Today show earlier segments. They do this shiat all the time!). She seems to have fun, and she gets to drink on the job. The worst emotion I can summon is jealousy. And there are frankly a lot of women out there less munchable than her.

I don't watch the Today show for several reasons (can't stand Kathie Lee, it's vapid, I have a job to go to), so this is the first I've heard about the situation. They drink on a morning show? Like, all the time? And do they get noticeably drunk, or do they just take a couple sips an hour but still get hell for it from judgmental stay-at-home moms who won't tolerate seeing ANY consumption?

/I don't even drink, btw (not anymore at least)
//still, if they regularly get shiatfaced on live TV, that sounds like it could be interesting once in a while.

Let me know when they start making out with each other

You celebrate the bombing of Nagasaki?

Kathie Lee still looks good for her age but that guy she co-hosts with needs a new haircut.

By getting bombed. What's more appropriate than that?

The SNL parodies of this show were absolutely hilarious.

As for the actual show, I've never actually watched, and probably won't ever.

Because August 9th is Hoda Kotb's birthday?

Wait wait wait, what kind of f*cking "article" is this?

Just headlines (which repeat the captions in the pictures verbatim), and... a picture? And that's it??

No context, no "it was funny because this happened during this segment" writeup? No actual clips?

I know BuzzFeed is Fark's newest baby, and are buying like a million links a day, but I think I just clicked my last one. What a piece of sh*t.
 
2013-01-09 03:35:41 PM  
I farking love Hoda, and I barely even watch the show.

It got to the point where their New Years resolution is to not drink for 30 days.
/My mom watches almost every day

Just headlines


These links are worse than slideshows, since the screen shots aren't hotlinks to the video. Without the video or any commentary it's a link to nothing.

Buzzfeed has no idea what it wants to be. It's part self importance, part internet pandering.
 
2013-01-09 04:32:21 PM  
They need to do an episode wearing nothing but bikinis.
 
2013-01-09 04:37:32 PM  
Oooh Kathie Lee
How I'd love ta lay ya down
And like ev'ry inch of yo bahday with mah tongue

J. Fred Mugs was the last truly great Today show co-host.
 
2013-01-09 04:43:03 PM  
From wikipedia...In Arabic, the name "Hoda" means "guidance", and is very popular among Arab women. The surname "Kotb" means "the pole"...

Hehe

Morning drinking: the respite of stay at home moms and the pathetically unemployed.
 
2013-01-09 06:33:26 PM  
one time i saw them ask someone from Terra Nova if the dinosaurs on the show were real and not cgi.
 
2013-01-09 07:32:50 PM  
Oh, they're drunk.  They're drunk, and they're giggly.  And usually they're very, very dumb.

\mother is addicted to NBC, swear she watches 90% of her TV on that network

Is one of them "The inevitable moment when Hoda finally loses it and beats Kathie Lee senseless with a bottle of Merlot?"
