Tony Hams It Up With Matt Lauer On The Today Show

Thursday, March 26, 2009



I mentioned late yesterday that Tony Kornheiser would be on the Today Show this morning, after he and Wilbon called out Matt Lauer, and here is your video. Not only does Tony don fake antlers but he even questions the fact that there are actual deer in the Hamptons. Enjoy!



That was actually pretty darn funny, and I'm with Kornheiser on this one. I would never call "one of the most trusted man on television" a liar, but I've been to the Hamptons before. There ain't no deer around dem parts!

The real question is, how many times did he reference Brett Favre?

It was interesting to see Ann Curry on this bit. On his radio show TK always calls her a praying mantis and says she looks like she is about to bite the head off whomever she is interviewing.

I guess no one has told her.

When I lived in Michigan, I was bike-riding on a backroad. I heard something crashing through the woods on my right. About 20 yards ahead, a doe ran across the road. Not far behind came a buck. I had to slam on the brakes to keep from hitting him. I guess the question is if there are any deer where Lauer was.

So true allen. He hated her. Anyone that calls a woman a preying mantis cannot be a fan of her.

But this clip just shows how great Tony is when he is not on MNF. His radio show was outstanding and hopefully he will get fired from MNF so he can come back to the radio.

This is vintage Tony and why I miss him on the radio. I'm a huge Kornheiser fan but his humor does not work well on MNF.

Why doesn't ESPN let Tony do radio where he excels? He's a much better radio host than MNF guy. He would by far have the best show on ESPNRadio.

What is so funny is that he has never liked Ann Curry but you wouldn't know it from this clip.

Radio is so much better to work in than television. I think Tony is beginning to realize this more fully.

I don't think Tony is going to turn down thsoe hefty TV paychecks anytime soon. Yes,Tony loves doing radio, however, TV is paying him very well, right now.

Didn't TK have a run-in with the radio suits? I think it was over his "Internet show", and that was why he left/got canned.

Too bad. I didn't really care for Tony's radio show at the time, but the alternative sucks.

I loved TK's internet show. I could not wait for the comericial break to hear Tony and his crew trash ESPN heads etc. That was a great radio show.
