(Uproxx)   The Today Show thought it was a good idea to air a Flo Rida booty-dancing performance at 8:47 AM yesterday. Colbert thought it was a good idea to thoroughly dissect that good idea   (uproxx.com) divider line 26

Let's be perfectly honest no morning show in America is a bastion of journalistic excellence. I kind of expect the Today Show to be nothing more than creampuff journalism and exhibitionism for morons. That pretty much applies to 90% of the news cycle anyway.

I liked it better when he dry humped a cappella coeds on The Sing Off.

Yeah, all television programming right after 8:00am says to the viewer, "Are the people actually doing stuff with their lives gone? Good. Sit down, look at these things you wanna buy, and get ready for this former American Idol contestant, who'll be performing Thursday night at..."

At risk of seeming like an enormous idiot...I'd never made the connection that Flo Rida was from Florida until that Colbert. I feel pretty stupid right about now.

The gold Jesus necklace was just...f*cking...PERFECT.

Did you perhaps think he was a surfer riding a heavy menstrual cycle?

 I dunno. Rappers have stupid names. I just thought it was another one and never gave it too much thought.

Colbert's the man.

People are trying, but this generation still doesn't have a worthy equivalent of "Baby's Got Back".

The Today Show also aired an Ed Sheeran performance. During one of the songs he drops the F-bomb, but as he was on television, he just didn't sing that word...unfortunately the teenagers in the audience did sing it...loudly. I laughed when I saw it. The Today Show needs to get it together.

News flash: The Today Show sucks. Real adults who desire to watch a morning news program watch CBS This Morning with Charlie Rose.

No, but I'll admit Major Lazer's "Bubble Butt" has gotten stuck in my head on more than one occasion.

I for one am a huge fan of Massa Chusetts, but I'm not surprised they didn't mention him.

Charlie Rose is fine as an interviewer, as an anchor he's over matched, especially if there's a live news event going on.

He's very much in the Ron Burgandy mold of someone who cannot go off scipt/prompter.

I was watching all 3 this morning (I'm a telecommuter 4 days a week),

CBS lead with Al Qaeda moving into Syria (an actual news story), NBC's opening block was about the kidnapped teenager who was rescued in Idaho (good for her but I don't care) and ABC was talking about Elon Musk's hyper tube (really?  the lead?).

I only watch GMA to imagine the dirty things Lara Spencer and or Amy Robach could be doing to me.

Your mistake makes sense.  Flo Rida appears to be a very stupid man.
