The ladies of the Today Show finally got their chance to face Joel McHale, who makes part of his living making fun of people like them on his show The Soup. Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb seemed genuinely annoyed by McHale, who was there to promote tonight’s new episode of Community.
The ladies called him out by rolling the very clips in which he makes jabs at their drinking. McHale even came prepared with a bottle of wine for them.
I don’t know if they were expecting and apology, but McHale firmly stood by his decision to mock their “drunken” antics while the ladies pretend to laugh with pained smiles on their face. Even if they’re secretly hurt, the ladies take it in stride.
After all, it’s all in good fun and it’s free publicity for their show… As for McHale, I think he really wanted to talk about Community but instead he was on the defensive for part of the interview.
