There's so much news going on in the world, you guys, and a cable news network that's on 24/7 can only cover so much of it. Especially when you carve out three minutes at midday for an awkward live interview from MSNBC anchor Contessa Brewer, featuring Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson and Fred Armisen in a separate studio within 30 Rock.
Between trying to sneak in her own quips, Brewer asked Armisen about his impersonations of Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak and U.S. President Barack Obama, and who Thompson and Armisen hope will run in 2012 just for the impersonations. Hmmm. OK. I suppose. Tuesday Noon Live isn't quite SNL, but for a few minutes, if you've got nothing better to report on the news, why not, right?
