Funniest thing in a while

So CBS anchorman Bob Schieffer was the guest on The Colbert Report Monday night and was discussing ratings for the network news shows and delivered one of the best lines ever (forgive me for having to paraphrase):

Schieffer: the reason our rating are so high on the morning news shows is because our viewers are so old that a bunch of them died overnight and left their TVs on.


granted this is coming from a guy who made really macabre death jokes during the Oscar ceremony--ABC was in hyperdrive for pimping its new series "Miracle Workers" about doctors who save people in dire situations. I said that the special edition DVD will have outtakes of the people who died on the table. If there's a hell I've got my one-way ticket punched.

happy Tuesday!
