Because today's TV is less about the news and more about the people that give you the news, NBC went live to Al Roker in his hospital room.
Roker had just got done having knee replacement surgery. He needed the story after sticking his foot so far up Billy Bush's ass when he tore him apart in Rio.
Roker said that he had a camera crew along during the surgery, you know, so they can milk this for even more ratings.
Bet you $20 you will see the surgery video during the November book.
Now, watch as Al, who appears to still be high on pain killers talks about his surgery and who he slept with last night.
