Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb discuss their EW feature on-air... and then grope me!

This week’s EW features a behind-the-scenes story on the gloriously goofy fourth hour of the Today Show featuring Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. (The fourth hour is must-watch television for those of you who enjoy a laugh and a nice bottle of pinot grigio.) As I say in the story — yes, I’m both quoting myself and blogging about myself — if the first few hours of Today are programmed for your parents, then the fourth hour is for your wild aunt who gets drunk at weddings and makes out with the best man. And frankly, that’s the kind of gal I wanna hang out with. I had the pleasure of returning to the show to visit Kathie Lee and Hoda this morning — but they were not so thrilled to see they didn’t make the cover. On the plus side, however, I did get to first base with Kathie Lee.

Watch below (and, despite my incessant giggling, I promise I was not drunk)…

What do you think, PopWatchers? Do you watch the fourth hour of Today?

    The giggling makes the clip.

    Oh dear gawd that was funny! How awesome to be on the show with those crazy ladies. Love them. Tim I hope you went backstage and had some Pinot after that. Cheers!

  • EWFan

    Great job Tim, but next time take your hands out of your pockets, you’ll look less terrified!

    • Katja

      Yeah, but if he let them swing free, it could have looked awkward and weird. I’d have put my hands away too! I may not be a fan of Tim’s blind love for Glee, but I thought he was great and awfully cute here. :)

  • Carrie

    Love the sweater.

    I LOVE Hoda and Kathy Lee! You should co-host when one of the ladies are gone! Cheers!

  • Tash

    I envy your job. The sweater? Eh, not so much.

  • Rebecca

    So I’ve never really watched them, but after watching this I feel like I’ve already seen it because the clip came off like the SNL sketch, including Kathy Lee’s shoulder shrug laugh. Classic! I did love the “your mother’s never seen this” bit–very funny!

    You guys were having too much fun to have been drinking apple juice!

    Love the show! I’m trying to find the recipes for the holiday drink from the show on 12-10-10. Could you email them to me please!! Thanks

    who was the blonde with the beautiful singing style on the dec. 9, 2010 episode?

  • Dewd

    Guess I haven’t seen Kathie Lee in a while, when did she morph into that other annoying Real Housewife of NYC, Ramona Singer? Were they separated at birth or what?

  • Peter

    in what reality is it ok to be drinking at 10am?? are they that incacpable of putting on a show sober? pathetic, and the fact that your article highlights their drinking in such a positive manner is disgusting. you should be ashamed of yourself.
