Nightly News With Bon Jovi And Springsteen

Watching Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy on "30 Rock" making fun of NBC's "artist-in-residence" program was hilarious. And Jon Bon Jovi sitting at the Nightly News anchor desk strumming his guitar under a graphic that reads "Nightly News With Bon Jovi"--now that's comedy. Art truly imitating life. So is NBC really owned by Sheinhardt Wigs?

On Thursday's Nightly News story about Bill Clinton's heart stent procedure, Brian Williams told us that "The former president (is) 63" and that he is a "very active former president". This immediately brought to mind Brian's overly reverential (and somewhat creepy) Sept. 23 birthday ode to Bruce Springsteen, in which he said, "He's an active 60..." before going on to tell us that Springsteen is "the head of a huge organization--what he calls the heart-stopping pants-dropping house-rocking earth-shaking booty-quaking Viagra-taking love-making E Street band." I guess if you changed "E Street" to "K Street", that would pretty much describe Bill Clinton, too.
