Quote of the Day

"If you don't live in Los Angeles then you are really missing out on KTLA news. Imagine that a group of people all moved to Hollywood to be actors and actresses then decided to fall back on their Communications degrees 6 years later and accept jobs at the local news station. Can you imagine what that would be like? Okay, that's every other news station in Los Angeles. KTLA is worse.

This is the group of anchors that are still auditioning for Allstate commercials on the side. They are not giving up on their dreams and that 6:00 AM news program is their potential ticket to fame. Unfortunately, somebody assigned them a story about Shake Weights."

-- The Tosh.0 Blog

It's a juvenile joke that's been done to death by now, but there are admittedly a couple of pretty amusing moments in this, my favorite being the poor reporter's plea to "God, go to the clip -- please."

As for the quote itself, I hate to get hyper-local but if you've ever gotten the chance to watch the KTLA morning show you know that that's the most dead-on description of it pretty much ever.

Oh man, the KTLA morning show. I can't watch it, it's so awful. But then again, I watch Good Day LA, with Steve and Jillian, which I feel is an entertaining show. So I probably don't have room to talk.

This was one of the best skits SNL has ever done! Oh wait, I'm just hearing in my earpiece that this wasn't SNL, this was an actual local show in the #2 market in the country? Big Black One indeed.

The embarrassment of being an American is unending.
