In the past couple years, there have been some incredible bloopers on live television and anchor crews acting awkward has been a large part of those bloopers. Jimmy Fallon took to the camera with his pal Claire Danes, who gained fame from her role in the television show “Homeland,” to imagine a news crew that jokes too much.
Like most on-camera anchor jokes, the Fallon/Danes jokes are painfully awkward. It seems like too many newscasters are considering stand-up comedy when they should stick to telling their viewers whether or not it’s raining. Regardless, Fallon makes a pretty wonderful anchor, and J.K. Simmons looks hilarious in a toupee.
