NBC Stars Now Fighting Over Who Gets to Grovel Before King Obama During Super Bowl Pregame

Posted by on Feb 03, 2012 at 7:31 am

When you’re vying for The King’s attention and most of all  his approval, things can get ugly.

Oh, you didn’t realize part of the lead-up to the big game Sunday will involve Obama? Where have you been the last three years? There is to be no enjoyment in America, only worship of The One.

A Turf war broke out at NBC between Brian Williams and Matt Lauer over who’d land the coveted annual pre-Super Bowl interview with President Obama. Sources say camps from Lauer’s “Today” show and Williams’ “Rock Center” jockeyed for the Obama chat, calling White House brass to push each anchor over the other. “Brian needs this interview right now,” a source said, referencing the sagging ratings on his new show. “Giving it to Matt shows that pleasing him is a bigger priority at NBC.” Lauer has made it known he’s uncertain if he’ll stay at the network after his contract expires in December. An NBC rep said, “The request from Brian to the White House was for a completely different opportunity. Matt’s interview with President Obama, when NBC hosts the Super Bowl, has become a bit of tradition for us.”

A bit of tradition, dating back to the one time he interviewed him in 2009.
We recommend alternate activities during the pregame, like enjoying your company. Let’s hope come Super Bowl XLVII a new president is being interviewed.

    The Dear leader is so wonderful and giving; can’t they get along and share?

    Bootlicking pseudojournalists, both of them. Disgusting, yet hilarious at the same time. Slapping my knee while experiencing gag reflex at the same time.

    The battle of the guys who never finished college.

    I bet these two dweebs have mirrors in every room of their lovely houses.

    Maybe Comrade Downgrade Teleprompter can get a threesome going on here…

    You know what else is worth fighting over? The remote control!

    I’m not sorry to see Williams show suck and I look forward to Lauer moving networks and crashing like Couric.

    Is it true these two ladies didn’t finish college? Hahaha, boring and without Ivy League credentials.

    Where have I been? Having a life. When does the real action start? I can fast forward the DVR to there…and also miss halftime.

    Now _THAT_ is football. This other silliness? These are night people. According to Ray Wylie Hubbard: ‘There are two kinds of people in the world – day people, and night people. And it’s the night people’s job to take the day people’s money.’ Nothing but a big bare scene. Nothing to see, get the show started.

    Sorry bout all the fools who actually pay money for this…..stuff.

    ‘bare’, although maybe not so false, should be read as ‘bar’.

    Sorry. Bad keyboard, bad. Down, PC, down!
