i just watched the local NBC New York 11 pm news, with Chuck Scarborough and Sue Simmons on NBC. Here's what I saw:
The first segment was dedicated to Sue, as this marked her 30th year on the program. I saw pictures of her first show and a nice montage of highlights over the years. I learned that Sue is semi-famous for her spot-on imitation of a groundhog, which she demonstrates every Feb. 2. she was generous enough to show it off this evening as well
The second feature was about Michael Jackson, his doctor, the old charges of pedophilia, etc. After the segment, Sue again received congratulations from the news team.
After the next commercial, we heard about the investigation into Brittany Murphy's death. Then the weather guy came on, gave kudos to Sue, and highlighted what we'd see about weather after the commercial breat.
before the show ended, we got weather, sports, more hosannas to Sue and "goodnight, the tonight show with conan o'brien is next."
Conan's monologue covered a lot more news then i'd seen in the previous 35 minutes with Chuck and Sue.
Much as I've always enjoyed kooky Sue Simmons, does anyone know there's a war going on? there must be something more important in New York to report than a lovely reel of sue's hairdos over the last 30 years?
Maybe the anchors could just read to us directly from People magazine.
